Life in the Times of Corona
This episode is about gaining perspective. The truth is that we are all in this pandemic together, trying to take it one day at a time and it is taking a toll on each of us in diverse ways, no matter how strong or emotionally stable we think we are. So, as you listen, I want you to take a moment to truly answer this question: how am I doing? Don't forget to share it with others because we all need this bit of perspective!

Vision 2020 for the Millennial
Vision 2020 for the Millennial
The year 2020 is viewed as the 'golden year', isn't? About 4-5 years ago, we looked upon this year with so much expectation but that is not focus of this episode. Rather, in this episode, I talk about how the millennial is encouraged to as visible as possible through social media so as to achieve their goals. What does this kind of pressure mean for the millennial who is not into social media? Listen and you will hear my two kobos!

STEER OFF TYPES
STEER OFF TYPES
Stereotypes are part of everyday life and while some may say that they are inevitable, we have to be honest about the fact that they are extremely annoying. They box people in and make one assume the worst of others. If you have had an experience with a stereotype, you will totally relate to this episode. Listen to the witty way I address this topic and guess what! I start the episode with some storytelling!

The Culture Called Rape
The Culture Called Rape
Rather than condemn rape, we create a culture that allows rape thrive in Nigeria. We should be focused on the fact that someone's rights have been abused instead of trying to find ways of discrediting the victim. Listen to this episode to hear my two cents on rape culture and the ways that we are promoting it, even in the 'simplest' questions we ask. You have to listen to this!

DEPRESSION IS NOT A FAD!
DEPRESSION IS NOT A FAD!
Depression and suicide rates are on the rise. Funny enough, most people assume that this is because those who get depressed or commit suicide are just trying to join the bandwagon but depression is not like tryingto get the latest iPhone or watched the latest Marvel movie... It is much more than that! Listen to hear more of my thoughts on this pandemic.
