“Indian Matchmaking” Part 2: Why We Have a Love/Hate Relationship With The Show | TIS Ep. 39

Episode Summary:

**Spoiler alert** Details of the Netflix series Indian Matchmaking are discussed in this episode.

The sisters are back with the continuation of their reaction to their favorite guilty-pleasure series, Indian Matchmaking. From Aparna’s hatred of comedy and love of the Bolivian salt flats, to the stigma attached to Nadia being Guyanese-Indian, to super-rich Pradhyuman’s refusal to compromise, Episode 2 is reality TV gold. Watch episode 2 on Netflix, and then join Sharon and Lisa as they react to it. (For their reaction to the first episode of the series, listen to Episode 32!)

When Meghan and Harry Met Oprah: Part 3_Piers Morgan & Sharon Osbourne | TIS Ep. 37

When Meghan and Harry Met Oprah: Part 3_Piers Morgan & Sharon Osbourne | TIS Ep. 37


Right on cue, as soon as “The Interview” had aired, some of the racists that walk among us (we’re looking at you, Piers Morgan) showed their entire underpinnings. Of course, once they were challenged, they proceeded to exhibit peak caucasity and flood the world in white tears. In this 3rd and final episode in our Meghan and Harry series, we examine white privilege, white fragility, racism, and why Black people are tired of dealing with all of it. Join us as we wrap up our conversation stemming from the interview of the year.

When Meghan and Harry Met Oprah: Part 2 | TIS Ep. 36

When Meghan and Harry Met Oprah: Part 2 | TIS Ep. 36

Episode Summary:

There was so much to unpack from “The Interview” to end all interviews that we had to do a part 2. In this episode, we take a deep dive into Meghan’s mental health revelations, Harry’s unwavering support for his spouse, and how (randomly?) Tyler Perry ended up saving the day. Why does this matter so much? Because so many people – and so many women of color – see Meghan’s experiences reflected in their everyday lives. Because Meghan has reignited a much-needed conversation about mental health in general, and more specifically about how racism, bullying, and misogynoir all have serious adverse mental health effects. Join us as we continue the conversation.

Trigger warning: suicidal ideation, depression, bulimia, and rape are mentioned.

When Meghan and Harry Met Oprah: Part 1 | TIS Ep. 35

Episode Summary:

Trigger warning: suicidal ideation and depression are mentioned.

Yes y’all, we are still talking about this interview. And so is the rest of the world. Why? Because so much tea was spilled! Like many other BIPOC, especially Black women, we felt triggered. If you take the titles out of the picture, Meghan was relatable, but for the saddest of reasons. The racism, misogynoir, and bullying that she endured echo what so many of us experience daily. And the mental health effects that result from that are disturbingly relatable too. Join us as we unpack “The Interview” to end all interviews.
