Our guest this week is Akilah… obviously! Akilah Hughes – otherwise known as Akilah Obviously – is a writer, comedian, and YouTuber who talks as easily about race, feminism, and intersectionality as she does pizza, hair, and punching Nazis. In this conversation, our hosts chat with Akilah about her life as a creator and the videos she’s most proud of (like the fantastic series, “This Shouldn’t Be News”). We also dive into what it’s like to be a black woman in media in the time of #blackwomenatwork and share the smart and hilarious content you ought to add to your queue. So hit play – obviously!
