Phoebe & Cleo Wade Are On a Journey of Self-Discovery
Hey Black Frasians - we’re down to the last month of 2020. Hooray!!! So happy that Phoebe got a chance to kick it off with poet-author-activist Cleo Wade. The two discuss how to move forward in our lives, her journey thus far and Cleo convinces Phoebe to get on board with journaling. Plus, there are some great audience questions! Enjoy!

It is - SURPRISE! - an interview-advice hybrid show hosted by a black person (ahem, me: Pheebs!) who has never seen an episode of FRASIER despite having a white boyfriend. #WeAllContainMultitudes. Moving on. Since I’m known amongst friends to dole out solicited (and unsolicited) life advice, I wanna spend each week - with a celeb guest - helping y’all handle your probs. #OliviaPope #MoreLikeOliviaDope #MomJoke. ANYWAY, the world is a continuous dumpster fire and the goal of this poddie is to make you laugh, think, and feel hopeful for our future.

Katherine Power, Founder of Versed Skincare & (new!) Merit Beauty
For our very last founder episode of the year, we’ve brought in the big guns! It’s serial entrepreneur Katherine Power, co-founder of Who What Wear, its spin-off line of street style-inspired fashion, a multitude of media brands and most topping our beauty minds, Versed Skincare. Total estimated value? $100 million dollars. (It’s safe to say we’re taking notes on how to kill it in business, folks.) EXCLUSIVE SCOOP ALERT: Katherine tells us about her newly announced next enterprise, an exciting line of colour cosmetics, called Merit Beauty!! First, find out why TikTok beauty influencer of the year, Skincare By Hyram, is calling Versed the next CeraVe when it comes to drugstore skincare. We’ll share our personal favourites that we stock up on at Target, while Katherine fills us in on the SEO secret that drove some of the brand’s top-selling SKUs. Plus, how can they possibly make this “clean” skincare line so affordable? We get the answers to that question, too. Finally, stay tuned until the end to hear the official reveal on Merit makeup, including the celebrity who’s already had it in her hot little hands. Psst! Follow our Instagram to see video footage from our chat, along with details on an exclusive contest we’ll be offering with both Versed and Merit.
