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.

  • 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

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.

  • 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

  • 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
