We Gotta Talk About...
caiteezy & mayalicious
We got a LOT to talk about. In the interest of BEING better and DOING better, there’s so much we gotta unpack first. We wanted to start this podcast as a space to learn and discuss things that are not often talked about in our communities or that we didn’t feel we had authority to speak on because we have often been in white or male dominated spaces.

We Gotta Talk About...Education ft Black in PUSD
Education is a super important topic and not necessarily one that isn't discussed, it's just always discussed within a certain space and amongst people who reap all the benefits of being educated. So...we're here to talk about the things that those people didn't experience. From the perspective of BIPOC who felt out of place, had students verbally attack them, and had teachers who were never invested in them.On this episode we were able to talk with Nene and Ekene, the students behind Black in PUSD, an account which shares first hand accounts of racism in a school district in San Diego. TW // during our interview with Black in PUSD Nene and Ekene discuss stories of being threatened by white students which may be triggering to Black folx.Check out Nene and Ekene's page on IG @BlackinPUSD for stories of how racism has affected BIPOC in the Poway Unified School District.

We Gotta Talk About...Women in Sports
We gotta talk about women in sports. So many female athletes in the US can't even be professional athletes full time, get ripped apart by the media, and outright harassed by fans when they do something they don't like.In this episode we talk about..The Williams sisters and growing up seeing Black women become household names in tennis. How media portray both female broadcasters and athletes. And growing up as women who love to watch professional sports and are expected to be experts just because we are not men.Articles referenced in this episode:https://www.miamiherald.com/sports/article234425642.htmlhttps://www.forbes.com/sites/oliviaabrams/2019/06/23/why-female-athletes-earn-less-than-men-across-most-sports/?sh=2d9b895040fbhttps://www.espn.com/espnw/story/_/id/28971949/analysis-equal-pay-sports-really-means-fight-goes-us-women-soccer See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

We Gotta Talk About...Sexuality
We're officially back with new episodes! This week we gotta talk about sexuality... As two cisgender women we felt this was an important topic to discuss to help normalize these conversations amongst people who identify within in the gender binary. In this episode we discuss: - The history of the gender binary and gender roles in the Black American, Caribbean, and South Asian community - How certain  "fluid" aesthetics are only praised if they aren't seen on an lgbtq+ person of color  - Our personal experience with the gender binary and exploring our sexuality as two women of color Articles referenced in this episode: Indigenous Sexualities - https://www.e-ir.info/2019/08/20/indigenous-sexualities-resisting-conquest-and-translation/India before the binary - https://www.brownpundits.com/2020/06/10/india-before-the-binary/Third Gender - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_genderWe have a new podcast format of discussing one topic per episode along with a new intro.

We Gotta Talk About...Latinidad and The N Word ft. Odalys Jasmine
We gotta talk about our guest!! We have a very special guest on this episode in honor of Latinx Heritage Month.  Odalys Jasmine is a master storyteller and proud first generation Hondureña/Catracha. She joins us on this episode to discuss Latinidad with Maya who is a first generation Dominican-American. Latinidad refers to the various attributes shared by Latin American people and their descendants. However, this is not inclusive of those who do not speak Spanish, those who identify first and foremost as Black, or the many Indigenous folx in Latin America who identify with their tribe and reject colonial borders. Jasmine and Maya discuss this concept as well as their unique perspectives as children of immigrants from two very underrepresented parts of Latin America - Central America and the Caribbean. Check out Jasmine's podcast Hella Latin@ Our second topic, another heavy hitter, is the N word. Why will this word forever be something we have to debate and discuss? We dive in to our own experiences with the word, how our generation perceives it, and how it changes with each generation.  This episode is the last full episode of this first series. Stay tuned for more episodes after a short break! Articles referenced by Caiteezy for today's episode:  https://amp.theatlantic.com/amp/article/596872/ https://theundefeated.com/features/if-you-truly-knew-what-the-n-word-meant-to-our-ancestors-youd-never-use-it/ https://www.oprah.com/omagazine/oprah-interviews-jay-z-october-2009-issue-of-o-magazine/8 For more perspectives on Latinidad and Latin American/Caribbean culture check out these folx: Migrant Scribble - Afro Zapotec poet, artist, and immigrant Alán Pelaez Lopez, creator of #latinidadiscancelled Bad Dominicana - Badass artist, critic, and speaker Zahira Kelly-Cabrera Ain't I Latina - Platform founded by Bronx born Garifuna Janel Martinez. Bag Ladiez Podcast - Two Bronx Dominicanx tryna be better & make you better too Radio Caña Negra - A podcast which focuses on Black Latin American experiences. These folx also host various classes on Black Latine History and Anti-Blackness in the Latine Community. Raíces Verdes - A platform dedicated to validating, archiving and sharing the experiences of Black, Indigenous, People of Color, in connection to the environment.
