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

  • 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)

  • Brown Faces and Inclusive Spaces in Music Scholarship w/Lissa Reed of Project Spectrum Aired: Thursday, December 5, 2019

  • Equal Pay For WOC ft. Samantha M. Parisi Esquire Aired: Thursday, November 21, 2019

    “Be you, have a strong support group and continue to passionately advocate for yourself and to be your own best advocate.” -Samantha M. Parisi

    How can WOC use anti pay discrimination laws to advocate for themselves in the workplace? Lawyer and Pay Equity Coalition advocate Samantha Parisi joins me to discuss last year’s Latina Equal Pay Day rally and key pay equity bills the Coalition helped fight to get signed into law in NY state. We also discuss her experiences witnessing pay inequity and workplace discrimination firsthand, and how this has influenced her law career.

  • Masculinity in 2019 and Beyond Feat. Javi Mason and Taurus Savant Aired: Thursday, November 14, 2019

    "It’s very important to embrace both your masculine and feminine energy. You can’t be one without the other and they complement one another. And I feel like a lot of folks have forgotten that because of...what we learn from our society…we are to get back to that, we are to basically realize that they complement one another. They make us whole and when you honor that, you honor your divinity, you honor yourself.” -Javi Mason

  • 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
