No Labels, Included

Join us on Thursdays at 3:00 pm on WAYO 104.3 for No Labels, Included: the show where we let the audience define themselves.

We focus on intersectional feminism and social justice in culture. Our intention is to create a space to talk about these things with inclusion in mind. We bring inspiration, education, validation, laughs, black girl magic, every week.

Past Episodes

  • Celia Cruz, Sharing Afrolatinx Culture, and Climate Change, Ft. Jerri Ann and Lecora Aired: Thursday, October 3, 2019

    "There are artists -- even American artists -- who will easily assimilate. Especially in that time period, they did what worked. They tried not to draw too much attention to their color...their otherness...but Celia Cruz...she owned it, and she loved it and she celebrated it...I've always loved that about her." -- Lecora

  • Eliminating Barriers to Healing In Roc w/Yoga 4 A Good Hood's Imani Olear and Marissa Aired: Thursday, September 19, 2019

    "Sometimes I actively work to challenge that idea of 'flow...' I could not detest the word flow associated with yoga more, because it compromises the actual postures in peoples bodies, because nobody's body moves the same. Even if you... have no issues that you're currently dealing with, your body doesn’t move like my body." --Marissa Bland

  • The 'B' Was Always There: Black Bi and Polyam Relationships w/Radio Host Bri Milon Aired: Thursday, September 5, 2019

    “We’re too okay with pretending, we don’t wanna talk, we don’t wanna have the hard conversations. My family, they’d rather just not hear about it…we already have this historical trauma that’s plagued our community, we don’t wanna deal with the things... that’s intertwined in our making, in our being…we’re not acknowledging certain relationships, we’re not acknowledging certain people’s ways of life. We have a peace of mind and we don’t wanna shake that. We wanna keep our peace of mind at every cost…cause it’s so hard to get." --Bri Milon

  • Christian Karega Is Making Beauty Safer and More Effective For Black Women w/Ayur Luxe Aired: Thursday, July 25, 2019

    "...a whole swath of products on the market…have ingredients or chemicals that are linked to cancer, weight gain, asthma, fertility issues…We’re gonna get into just how prolific African American women are in this market. I think that we have to be players in it, because a lot of times products are made for us but not by us...and so that’s why I think there’s just such an important call right now to just make sure that we are cleaning up the products to the extent that’s possible." -Christian Karega

  • Why the Tech Industry Needs More Women Like Us Aired: Thursday, July 11, 2019

    “I have a reputation of being expected to come into spaces and being very disruptive um, and being very honest. Now I’m building my consulting business. I’m helping tech leadership…it’s business strategy, I don’t call myself an inclusion and diversity um, specialist or anything because inclusion and diversity should be in the DNA of your company, it shouldn't be some siloed office or somebody -- one person’s responsibility, everybody in the organization should be working for inclusion and diversity.” -- Kim Crayton

  • Bottling Up Friday Night Feels w/R&B songwriter Marshay Dominique Aired: Thursday, June 27, 2019

    "When I was younger I would write songs and… it might be a little too dirty and it’s like ‘No I don’t wanna do that I don’t want mommy to listen to it and blush.’ And then I would think ‘okay, well I like to swear, but I won’t swear—‘ No. So now I sit down and it’s like, whatever comes out, comes out!” *laughs* --Marshay Dominique

  • Making Sure the Community Is Good w/Adrian Elim Photog./Filmmaker, Black Pride Founder Aired: Thursday, June 20, 2019

    "The people around me every day inspire me, like, there are so many amazing — just black people who live their lives…whether they’re like super, hyper-talented, or artists…they’re just living and doing it in such a unique way despite all the things that are, like, set up against them and set up against us and are working to — basically kill them every day, and they still manage to move and style it in such a way which is really, really dope…and I’m just like, 'I wanna demonstrate that!’ …When I shoot things…I want people to see what I’m seeing…I’m seeing us in this very, like, grand, majest

  • Emotional Honesty and Musical Simplicity: Interview w/ Musician Charles Emanuel Aired: Thursday, June 13, 2019

    "I’ve always loved some of the instrumentation that St. Kitt’s has…there’s this thing called, like, a string band where it’s... ukeleles, and guitars and, um, a fife...the musicality and also the honesty of lyrics because we also perform a genre called Calypso…So I always feel like I want to incorporate that in my music in terms of being honest and saying things or talking about things that are maybe not too comfortable but need to be said." --Charles Emanuel

  • Essence, Vulnerability and Being Weird: Interview With Photographer Cocoa Rae David Aired: Thursday, June 6, 2019

    "It was tough to explain that to people when you start out a series because when people hear ‘nudity,’ people automatically think—people have their ideas…but the point I make sure to let them know is that’s not what I’m trying to do, like, that is not the purpose of my series…it’s supposed to get people to revel in their existence." 
    --Cocoa Rae David on her Pigment Series.

  • Dealing With the Things In Our Closet: A Recap, and Ancestral Black Mental Health Aired: Thursday, May 23, 2019

There might have been some negative effects to it, most medicines we take have some side effect warnings, right? Hello!” -Dr. Ronke Tapp on reframing mental illness.
