TW: the last track on today’s show has a theme of suicide ideation. This weekend, we amplified ourselves with #WOCAffirmation. We have tracks from Shekhinah, Tamara Wellons, and Tank and the Bangas among others. Instead of a throwback segment, we have a sounds like a throwback segment again. We’re making ourselves heard this week.

Inda’s Corner Episode 8: 20 Years Since Chupacabra

When I realized it had been 20 years since the release of Chupacabra, I knew I had to devote some time to discussing what has been a seminal album, one that probably had more influence on music than is recognized. But I hope that October 28th brings with it proper commemorations of this work much more nuanced than my own fangirling brings. For now, please allow me to talk about one of the most unique, eclectic, but undersung artists of the past two decades who has had an unexpected impact on both my personal and professional lives, Imani Coppola.

On the day of the March for Black Women in DC, we open the show with some healing music to help carry us through the fall. We have tracks from Aisha Badru, Gifted Gab, and Taliwhoah among others. Our throwback segment is no mystery, just a few things I used to listen to on the radio in the 80s and early 90s. We’re kicking off the season of the harvest this episode.

Autumn Equinox

Sometimes I feel like autumn is my favorite season despite the fact that it ushers in the cold. However, it’s time for the earth to reap what we have sown then take it’s respite, resting as it prepares for us to plant our seeds again (and for us to prepare for cuffing season *wink emoji*). I marvel at how the earth is most beautiful as it’s “dying.” But I know it’ll all come back in due time. So here’s to celebrating the harvest. May it be plentiful and last you through the season.

CSP Presents The Black Swan Collective: Episode #64

Who would have thought we’d have a mostly upbeat show, well, still laid back but not as slow. This week we got music by Deekah Wyatt, Victory, and Chynna among others. Our throwback section might come as a bit of a surprise, but it’s still all about blackgirl magic. Get into the groove with us this week.
