DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Hello beautiful people of the internet, welcome to episode 11 here at Nessa's Buzz. This is a special episode because for one, i recorded it to celebrate Nessa's Buzz 1 Year Anniversary. It is such a big deal for me and i am so grateful for this far i have come! Secondly, my guest can attest to how many hurdles we went through to record very late in the night(has some bits of echo and screeches) but hey we made it work! And the message is definitely home! Lastly, this is honestly among my favorite episodes because of the vulnerability in it. The mere fact that my guest and i were not speaking fiction but true life experiences that we went through! It was so fulfilling to talk about this and i hope that if you happen to be going through the same thing, you find peace in knowing that you are not alone! You honey, are not alone. We poured our whole hearts into this and i do hope you enjoy it!

EPISODE 1; MILES IN LOVE.
EPISODE 1; MILES IN LOVE.
In Mandy Len Catron’s Modern Love essay, “To Fall in Love With Anyone, Do This,” she refers to a study by the psychologist Arthur Aron (and others) that explores whether intimacy between two strangers or lovers can be accelerated by having them ask each other a specific series of personal questions. The 36 questions in the study are broken up into three sets, with each set intended to be more probing than the previous one. That is the exciting venture we have delved into in this series starting with the first set of 12 Questions. Tag along and be the judge of whether the intimacy and chemistry was evident or not! Welcome to the very first episode of MILES IN LOVE!  Love is not static, it is a continous series of actions that feed a state of being. May we identify true love, may we value it and may we keep it!

HEARTBREAK HOTEL 2 [MALE PERSPECTIVE]
HEARTBREAK HOTEL 2 [MALE PERSPECTIVE]
This is basically a masculine version of what i did with Chloe Kinyanjui on the episode i dubbed the heartbreak hotel. We get to hear stories from Robin, a guy who will give us a feel of what it means to go through heartbreaks as a man. Something most men never talk about. Aren't we just lucky? Tune in and let's get the gyst as we continue learning. I bet you, i also learnt so much from this!!! Totally worth it. PS; We now have the ponsorship segment so highly most likely you might just get to listen to an ad at the beggining of the episode;) It's also my first ever ad so be kind with the critiques, we get better with time.
