New podcast archived: Black Femininity

You just gotta listen to the latest episode of "The Best of What Tami Said." AJ Plaid of The Cruel Secretary, Renee of Womanist Musings and Monica of TransGriot joined me to talk about black feminity. We laughed; we argued; we pontificated; we even got real about S-E-X. This is going down as a personal favorite!

Listen.

I came in about 30 mins late, but stayed through until the end of the show...really good! I am going to listen to it again tomorrow, so I can contribute to the dialogue. One small thing though, please everyone not talk at the same time! lol

@Sassy J--
Hahahaha! Look, I'll do my best, but when dealing with four women who hold definite and deep positions, there are no guarantees that same-time talk *won't* happen again.:D Speaking for myself, I'm glad you enjoyed the podcast!
--Abrazos,
AJ

I really enjoyed this podcast! This is the first episode of 'The Best of What Tami Said' I've listened to and I've subscribed on itunes. It's a pity I don't have an account on blogtalkradio I'd have left a comment there too. I liked when Monica mentioned the LGBT haters in some African countries. I'm West African and have had to deal with some ignorant comments similar to the those Monica mentioned in my lifetime.

Glad y'all liked it, and thanks Tami for inviting me to be a part of it.

@AJ- LOL, nah I understand!

Great podcast! Should have been longer. Renee, you sound like my twin. Seriously, I thought I was hearing myself speak on the same issues. Especially on the use of the word "some." Again terrific podcast.
