Never Not Funny
I discovered this podcast after Tracy was a guest on TBGWT and I was immediately hooked. I started at the beginning and am halfway through and I can already say without a doubt that this is one of The Best Podcasts out there. Heben and Tracy are consistently hilarious, thoughtful and insightful in all the right places. They ask all the right questions in their interviews, they have a kickass soundtrack by Don Will and Jean Grey and they even remind us listeners to practice self care - which is very necessary in this crazy world. This show has so much HEART. XOXO

Hit 'em on the BUzz!
Here's what happened, I gave up white media for lent, and this was my first podcast that I found. It's funny and beautiful and deep and powerful. I want to tell you this story: My first episode started with a "What Had Happpened Was" when Heben fell and actually cracked her head open. I was crying on my drive to work. Not because it was sad, it was hilarious. I wasn't crying with laughing, either. I was crying because it was the first time, I think ever, that I heard a story I could relate to through a podcast. It was just full of things that me, a child of an African immigrant, could imagine happening to me. OH! And Tracy straight up responded to me on an Instagram comment! They're amazing AND available to talk to us non-white house, non-Hamilton folks.

I have enjoyed this wonderful podcast for about a year. I love the intelligence, humor and straight up honesty these ladies serve. The most recent episode, #71: Burn, prompted my review. I was treated to Heben and recurring guest Bim as they expressed their feelings about our country’s recent election. Bim was a delight as she humorously recounted her experiences in her election coverage travels. Heben, clearly still very disturbed by the results and what they reveal about the world we’re living in, candidly expressed her thoughts and reactions and nearly drove me to tears as I sat in traffic on my morning commute. I felt like I was one of their homegirls tearing through a box of Kleenex and sharing a bottle of wine. They articulated feelings I had been unable to process and helped validate the completely unexpected and overpowering grief I’ve been dealing with this past week. Thanks ladies! You always brings the insightful laughs and the comfort-food level solidarity I always need.
Keep ya head up!
