Episode 2: making room + owning spaces // maya watson
We took the show on the virtual road and recorded a super fun episode on Clubhouse with their head of global marketing, Maya Watson. Prior to Clubhouse, Maya served as an executive at Netflix, OWN Network and HARPO productions.
We chat about her upbringing and the importance of family, what she has experienced as a Black woman in tech and the need for disruption while helping to bring others into rooms that have traditionally been closed. We also chop it up about Justice Ketanji Jackson and watching her confirmation hearings. Maya is a dynamic voice who invited us into her virtual living room and we had the best time!
Episode 1: humor + healing // evelyn ngugi
For our premiere episode of Season 2, we are in conversation with everyone's favorite internet cousin, Evelyn Ngugi or EvelynFromTheInternets. She is a comedian, creative activist, and content creator. She has created some truly prolific and hilarious videos about Black culture, life as a creative, and much more. Evelyn has a unique and amazing way of acknowledging our struggles while still making space for our joy through her humor.
