Show Notes

This episode is all about Lenya Wilson’s background, parents, and journey. Alexandra asks the questions and dives into The Goddess’s history with Georgia, Australia, New York, and California, as well as The One’s Puerto Rican and Black roots, a racial struggle that preceded any Black and white divide for Lenya. Explore a bit what it's like to raise a Black child in Australia, a country with a very white centered culture. Hear more about how Lenya got into fitness, CrossFit, and powerlifting, and discover where racism is deeply ingrained where you might not expect it. Also, get the backstory for Lenya’s instagram handle, which is also That Bitch’s preferred pronouns. -- Please **rate and review** this podcast if you enjoyed it; they greatly helps new listeners see this podcast is worth their time.

Formula 1 with SteF1

The all F1 episode is finally here! Lenya brought on Steph from the All About SteF1 YouTube channel to school Alexandra on all the drama, drivers, trophies, and shenanigans that is the wild world of Formula 1. It’s not just race cars though. These women also discuss how race is and isn’t represented in motorsports, just as how femininity is also notably missing, as well as the ecological impact of the cars and the transportation to make this “worldwide” sport happen. From Steph’s YouTube description: “Hi all! I am Steph and welcome to my little corner of the internet where I talk about all things motorsport! I am obsessed with F1, so that's the main one, but stay tuned for more content coming on lower formulas, Formula E and MotoGP! :) :)” Links from our discussion: [All About SteF1 - YouTube](https://www.youtube.com/c/AllAboutSteF1/featured) [Formula 1: Drive To Survive - Netflix](https://www.netflix.com/title/80204890) -- Please **rate and review** this podcast if you enjoyed it; reviews greatly help new listeners see this podcast is worth their time.

Interview with Nicole and Cassidy Part 2

We continue the conversation with mother Nicole and daughter Cassidy Meyers, today discussing the racism received by being Black in a White neighborhood and how it can be so subtle or indiscriminate that it’s confusing and disorienting. Also, “the talk’, and how it may be different for young men and young women. Lastly, a generational discussion on WAP by Cardi B. and Megan Thee Stallion, how it empowers women, and how it alone is not good enough. Nicole Meyers is an attorney in Los Angeles, California, where she practices plaintiff-side employment law. She holds a J.D. from Southwestern Law School, a B.A. in Theatre from UCLA, and is licensed to practice law in California and New York. Before becoming an attorney, Nicole traveled the world working as an actress and model. When she’s not aggressively advocating for her clients, Nicole’s likely enjoying quality time with her husband, children, and their three frisky cats. Cassidy Meyers is a senior photography major, writing minor at Spelman College. She’s a Los Angeles native who has been living in Atlanta for the past four years attending college. Recently, she participated in a program called ‘Black Future Creators’ through Beats where she got to create content related to her photography journey, which was featured on their site. She has loved the arts since childhood, and plans on continuing to use photography as a form of self expression. -- Please **rate and review** this podcast if you enjoyed it; reviews greatly help new listeners see this podcast is worth their time.

Racism in War 

Where is the line between breaking the law and being a crappy person? That’s just the first thing on the agenda today.    Lenya and Alexandra are together again and the conversation goes from sexual assult on social media, to Bill Clinton and abuse of power, naturally, and transitions to Formula 1, Star Trek, and the war on Ukraine.   Events like these can bring to light a lot of racism that we all just live with and think is the norm, until the flashlight of light-skin elluminates the evils we have all accepted.    --   Please **rate and review** this podcast if you enjoyed it; reviews greatly help new listeners see this podcast is worth their time.
