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

  • Pay Me: WOC In Freelancing Talk Money ft. Sahra Ali Aired: Thursday, October 15, 2020

    Our next guest in the Pay Me Series, Sahra Ali, a writer and diversity and equity consultant (https://www.sahraali.com/), talked with me about a moment where she had to use her consulting experience to navigate through a personal incident with a racist editor. We make the case for charging more for emotional labor and talk about what it means to value your mental health and freedom even more than money.

  • Pay Me: WOC In Freelancing Talk Money ft. Margo Gabriel (extended edition) Aired: Thursday, October 8, 2020

    The Pay Me Series is all about women of color in freelancing valuing our work as creatives (and the ways it is devalued), negotiating our rates with confidence and exactly why we charge what we do. This topic is not new, it's just always relevant!

  • Our Place In the Skies and the Movement ft. Sara Haile Mariam of Makeda! Aired: Thursday, October 1, 2020

    In part 2 of our two part conversation, Sara shares how the world-shifting events of the past six months have deepened her focus on centering her experiences in her art, rather than using it to heal white people of their white supremacy. She also gives a powerful reading of one of her poems. Sara's art challenges us to return to humanity's roots. This conversation is a breath of fresh air as we zoom out from the seemingly never ending conflict we're experiencing and explore new (or ancient) perspectives.

  • This Genre Is Ours: Interview w/Sara Haile Mariam of Makeda! Aired: Thursday, September 24, 2020

  • Alexis Russell, Creator of The Museum of You on Storytelling, COVID, #BLM + Resilience Aired: Thursday, July 23, 2020

    "The number of people that I’ve spoken to who have had encounters with COVID, and how that just automatically ties right back into the color of their skin. It’s interesting to me that I can pick up the phone and do an interview and the first thing that comes out of people’s mouths is ‘I’ve had the coronavirus and the way that I was treated in the hospital versus other people that I saw there, was horrible...” —Alexis Russell

  • Redefining Prosperity In A Tiny House (of Color) Aired: Thursday, June 18, 2020

    “When we moved to the RV park we moved in and we were the only people of color… So we moved into our little pod and the very next day they had this little sign they put on our door for a potluck…It definitely highlighted the fact that this space is traditionally very older and white” —Binta 

  • African-Italian Womanhood ft. Linda Tinah of Linda Tinah TV Aired: Thursday, June 11, 2020

    “I have different types of viewers. So the Italians are very interested to hear what I think of them. I made a video about the things I love about Italy and the things I don’t like about Italy. Interestingly enough the things I don’t like about Italy video got more attention…and the Italians weren’t very happy about that…” —Linda Tinah

  • Manifesting A Meaningful Music Career and Community ft. Zahyia Rolle Aired: Thursday, May 14, 2020

    “I was at a great job I was doing something that was expected, but that was always my plan B. I never really did put the effort into my plan A. And so I just decided at that point that if I was going to teach my daughter that she should always go for her whatever her dream is, and don’t be afraid to imagine and manifest what some would feel is impossible, if I was going to show her that, then I had to do that.” —Zahyia Rolle

  • How to Reclaim "Ugly" To Access More Pleasure Aired: Thursday, April 23, 2020

    "When I stop judging what my body wants to do and I stop repressing what my body wants to do and I let it just be free, I'm also letting my creativity be free... And so as an artist, as a writer, as a thinker, as a sensualist, I'm opening up more -- just possibility about how to engage with the world. And if my focus is pleasure, my body is the access point to pleasure. And then remember, my brain is a part of my body. So how do I stop repressing my brain, how do I stop repressing my body, how do I stop uglifying myself so that I can lean into, just, the luck of being alive in this moment.

  • The Body Is Like A Book: Interview w/Ginger David, Licensed Massage Therapist Aired: Thursday, March 5, 2020

    "Black women, we — [it’s] hard to let control go. We gotta have it all. We gotta be all. But, you gotta give certain places that chance to educate you and help you get to where you’re comfortable coming in and getting massaged, you know who’s massaging you every time you come in and they know what your body texture is like or what lotion to use — education is I guess the best key for African [American] women to use when it comes to these things..." -Ginger David, Licensed Massaged Therapist (LMT)
