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.

We talk about her comedy journey so far, the importance of calling out harmful jokes, and what it looks like to set new standards for comedy performances that allow them to be enjoyed by marginalized audiences. We also get into current events surrounding women and body image, and some of her weirdest comedy experiences.
