The Thing About Crushes
We have all had crushes at least once in a lifetime. I have decided to add a little spice to the dish I have been serving. This episode goes away from the heartbreaking topics in society to talk about the adrenaline-pumping experiences that we all love. I remember someone saying that the feelings that come with having a crush are an indication that sense is leaving you. Lol This is not necessarily true though. In this exciting episode, Lamana talks extensively about her experiences with crushes. Do you like my content??? Tip me https://useshukran.com/cr/afrowendy?ref=dishapages

7 Things You Should Know About Consent
For the past two weeks, there have been cases of rape and murder in Nigeria, from Uwa to Jennifer, to Azeezat to Ada. A lot of people had a lot to say about the issue. What is heartbreaking is the take by some people that the victims of rape are at fault for what happened to them.  From several comments online, it is evident that a lot of people do not understand the concept of rape, and to understand rape, one must first understand consent.  This episode, therefore, explains what consent is, including what it is not.

This episode discusses if this is normal fan behaviour or if there is an underlying issue that needs to be addressed. LISTEN AND DON'T FORGET TO SHARE!
