Two Brown Girls - Episode 22

On this week’s episode of 2BG we’ve devoted the main part of our discussion to your questions. We discuss being the “token” person of color in the group of white friends, why Fariha hates Natalie Portman, how our Ghanaian and Bengali mothers feel about what we do for a living, Tyler the Creator’s misogynistic bullshit, and finally we delve into a discussion about the New York Times interview with Kanye West (just so you know this was recorded pre-Yeezus leak and pre-Kimye baby!)

p.s. - If you’re like Zeba and you begrudgingly watch the often problematic hot mess that is True Blood, follow us on Twitter for our live-blogging at 9pm EST! 

Happy Father’s Day!
