The Nigerian Movement-- Peter Obi's Candidacy; Takeaways and Encouragement. Ft Mr Anthony.
I've been unapologetically apathetic about Nigerian politics until now. With the rise of something I see as a Nigerian Movement that began from the #Endsars, I am more participatory now. And this is one of the ways. This is the best time to participate in Nigerian politics with the emergency of a credible, transparent, honest and educated candidate with such an impressive and accessible track record. This is beyond a Presidential election for me. It is a loud cry for that change we've looked toward with so much hope from so many years of having to manage and muster such a bad and deplorable system. Your views are very welcome.

Toxic Work Environments; The Red Flags to Note to preserve Your Mental Health. Ft. Ernest Chigaemezu
I'm so delighted to eventually get the chance to discuss toxic work environments on a broad scale with a good friend. We're both speaking from firsthand experiences and dropping a few nuggets to help you, the listener, easily spot those attributes that constitute unhealthy work engagements and make timely decisions to preserve your mental health or manage the situation, whatever be the case. But, more importantly, we're glad to be airing our views and letting out pent-up our grievances on this issue via this platform.

10 Popular Word Choices you Shouldn't Try to Correct for a Typical Nigerian. Ft Esther Utomi.
Another of our laid-back midweek episode: We got down to analysing a few of those rampant, slangy and funny words that have stuck with typical Nigerians ( for instance, we know all seasoning cubes as maggi, full stop.) And we are leaving enough enough room for contributions as there are many other word choices like the ones we treated on this episode.

The Almajiri System of Education; Pros, Cons and Useful Suggestions ft. Mr Anthony Bata
This is my way of making the most use of my time here ( Yobe state, northeast Nigeria); driving home points on issues that are prevalent in the Northern part of the country. For the record, this is not in a bid to condemn this system of education but to analyse and draw attention to ways it could be safer, healthier for the kids involved and be more beneficial than it already is for the parents, the Mallams and the society at large. @weeklyspills on instagram. And Weeklyspills@gmail.com for your useful suggestions and comments.

"VILLAGE PEOPLE"dem dey abi dem no dey? ( How we've come to see the workings of juju and diabolism.
Borne from my leaning to do a laid-back episode in pidgin sometimes, we got chatty about superstitions and diabolism, ' village people' stories we've and how we've come to understand and deal with them in our different ways.

Highpoints and Lowpoints of Residing in Yobe Thus Far: The Corp Member Experience. ft Mercy Isaac
I finally came around to dropping something new after about six months. And here is it; our experience about the typical Northerner and the Northern lifestyle, here in Damaturu, from the dominant sensibilities, culture, attitude to life, and just how it's been living here generally, categorizing all these into all those that have made us feel unusually glad and those that have simply dampened our spirits.

Sexual Harassment; The sidelines, Identifying the tendencies, and subjective methods of dealing.
We cannot discuss certain issues enough to get the sort of positive responses we need. A lot of sexual harassment issues have been swept under for some time, badly approached by the system; a lot of people have been sidelined overtime, and there's this rampant silence culture, which shouldn't be the case

Education and Work for the Hausa, Muslim Girl. Ft Khadija Shuaib( My Hausa girlfriend)
In the spirit of changing negative stereotypes, this week's episode deals with the Islamic religion as it pertains to Hausa female adherents' education and work; and how certain mistreatments of women we may have associated with the Hausa Muslims overtime is rather a matter of individual extremist beliefs than a fault of the islamic religion in itself.

Unlearning Senseless Hatred-- "My Gender identification is my business!" (part 1)
Our misconception about the difference between Sex(the genitalia) and Gender has contributed to the hate we've shown outwardly or subtly towards men who are in touch with their feminine sides or women who are in touch with their masculine sides. This has made it important that we seek to be informed about things that are uncommon to us, accept people and simply quit the unnecessary hatred!
