Mo and Jay are reunited for the usual packed episode, with loads to get through, including the Royal Wedding, we breakdown the fashion, celebrity guests, the ceremony and more. Giving our unique take on proceedings, including our now fave Bishop Curry, who figuratively dropped the mic following that sermon. We discuss the the recent guardian article “The Markle Effect: Black Women See the Royal Wedding as Workplace Inpiration” As Black British Women ourselves, we ask the question does this signify change for us within the UK? Taking a detour into the recent statistics that state over 50% of black British women are single and try to answer why and what needs to be done to turn the tide.
Finally the ultimate dilema: do ex-partners making the wedding guest list? Mo and Jay are joined by returning guest Alex (Episode 16 Black Women in TV & Film)
