About The SIP: “On the SIP Podcast, we pour out our hearts, talk all the mess, discuss systemic injustice, and explore love and relationships. Almost no topic is off limits. It will be real and uncomfortable at times; it will be hilarious and ridiculous all in the same episode as we aspire to encourage women of color in every corner of the world…all from our living room. The goal is for it to be healing to each listener in their own unique way. To move forward together and to create a space that normalizes talking through the process of life with your girls, your tribe, your squad, your clique.”
