The AFAKASI SCOOP

The AFAKASI SCOOP

By The WesWes Network
Don't know about you but for us three working Mummas by the end of the week (sometimes not even mid week) we just need to WINE-DOWN …. oh I mean WIND-DOWN! What better than to combine both! We pour ourselves a glass of wine or three and talanoa, vent, discuss and deliberate about current haps both personal and public.
Here is our Samoan/Euro flavoured podcast recipe ….

Ingredients: Friends, Wine, Issues, Open mind

Recipe: Mix all ingredients together with no script, no measurements and no limits

Result: Your guess is as good as mine but we always tend to feel better at the end of it.

Ep.12 - When Enough is Enough
Afakasi Scoop are all together in the studio again and we were grateful to have Linda join us in an open, raw and emotional conversation about separation/divorce, the signs we may have missed, navigating co-parenting and the light that exists at the end of the divorce tunnel.  We dont advocate for divorce but we do advocate for happiness and self love.

Ep.11 - The Downside of Culture
Dont get us wrong, we LOVE our Samoan heritage and culture but we know there is a downside.  Today Tee and Ria are joined by Juliet to discuss the difficulties she faces being a NZ born Samoan in a relationship with her Romeo who was born in Samoa and still has strong family ties there.  The struggle is real and we know she aint the only one going through this.

Ep.8 - What ya didnt know about Uranus
DISCLAIMER:  This didnt start out as being an R35 but it does head in that direction so please be warned. What started as an innocent conversation about what attracts you to someone and about keeping your personal grooming on point ended in research about puholes!!!  Like we have always said ... our podcast is all about having NO script and NO limits so wherever the convo takes us there too we will go!!

Ep.2 - Talofa Samoa - Tofa SB
In honour of Samoan language week we chat and sing our way through this podcast with a mix of English and Samoan language.  We discuss bilingual units in schools before Ms Serious and Ms Humour have a battle of opinions.  Unlike what we saw with the National Party's ousting of their leader SB we talk about the importance of building up our fellow Polys and the part the Weswes Network play in this vital movement.

Ep.1 - Straight Outta Lockdown
After spending 6 weeks in lockdown we have been set free!!  Us ladies -Cyn, Tee and Ria met up in own brand NEW studio to talk about how homeschooling in lockdown went, how we spent Mothers Day (expectation vs reality) and we offer a lil advice to the males about how to stay out of the dog box! This is the first official podcast for the Afakasi Scoop and our very first time editing on our own .... it is a learning curve but like many Mamas out there we love a challenge, and we will only get better!!  Thanks to the 'Back of the 135' for helping the Afakasi Scoop spread their wings.
