Rod is joined by adult urban contemporary fiction writer Quan Millz to discuss his path to becoming an author, his prolific works of black fiction, dealing with the criticism from his controversial books, marketing and more. It was a long discussion with a lot of tangents but hopefully this is the definitive Quan Millz interview. As always feel free to leave comments.
Rod is joined by certified sex therapist Renee Burwell to discuss her path towards being a sex therapist, working for Bedroom Kandi, race in sexual health, infidelity, the taboo nature of conversations about sexual dysfunction and The Carters.
We had an entertaining conversation that was also very informative. I’m toying with the idea of having her back and maybe asking her some questions from the audience about sex and relationships. If that’s something you’d be interested in please leave a comment (anonymous if you want) in this thread or email me.
Rod is joined by Tim Lewinson creator of the graphic novel “Savage Empire.” We talk his creative inspirations, how he got his start in gaming, how to run a crowd funding campaign, Black Panther, Gamer Gate and more. This was a very fun conversation and independent creators can find a lot of inspiration here.
Rod talks with founder and CEO of Healthy Roots Yelitsa Jean-Charles about her experience in school, being a CEO, raising money, being black, street harassment and a ton more stuff. I had such a good time talking to Yelitsa. She’s an amazing person that I’m happy to introduce our audience to if they don’t already know her. Remember this interview because he star is still rising. She’s going places.
Rod talks to activist Tia Oso about her start in activism, social media, public debates in blackness, protesting at Netroots, intersectionality in activism and visibility. This was a lovely conversation that went on so long but passed by so quick. Tia is smart, engaging, funny and insightful. Talking to her felt like I’d known her forever. Hope you enjoy this conversation.
Rod talks with Briki Fa President about her amazing song “Fat Girls“, her skills on the mic, who are the bottom 5 rappers, her crew and what it is like being on the road. Briki is a hard woman to catch up with becaus she hustles so hard but this interview was dope. Make sure you stick around to the end to hear “Bars By Briki” which she posts on Instagram.
Rod talks with Michelle Joni (MJ) and Candace (CanCan) about their new venture helping adults rediscover the lessons we all learned in Preschool. Preschool Mastermind is a one month adventure exploring preschool concepts like sharing and friendship, in order to apply and inject play, wonder, self-belief, and community into our grown-up lives. We discuss the lesson plans, soul crushing jobs and getting back to the things that make us happy.
