Episode Summary:

In the final episode of Season 1, the sisters look back at their (sometimes bumpy, often hilarious) ride to getting into the podcasting world. They share some of their behind the scenes decisions, explain why they’re doing video even though it’s not really their thing as introverts, and give tips for what new or prospective podcasters should do to make their shows more professional.

And in the last vent of the season, Sharon and Lisa discuss how they are often viewed by extroverts (hint: it’s not good). Plus: coronavirus has affected every area of life, including education. But is remote school really working? From stressed out students and struggling teachers, to technical difficulties, and wifi wars, the girls are not so sure.

Michelle, Jill & Erykah: How Black Girl Magic is Helping to Get Us Through the Pandemic | TIS Ep. 11

Episode Summary:

Staying sane during the lockdown is a top priority (and harder than you might imagine).

Plus, on a more serious note: how is everybody doing on the employment front? The sisters – like so many others – are in the midst of the struggle. Sharon and Lisa talk about the harsh realities of finding or maintaining an income during the pandemic.
