Episode 108 - "Northernmost Caribbean City?" with NOLA Caribbean Experience

This week's episode is all about Caribbean Carnival vibes, not on the islands south of the U.S. though, but actually right here in the Big Easy. New Orleans is known for many things. Being the northernmost Caribbean city, however, isn't widespread knowledge.

Episode 106 - "Who Made The Potato Salad?" with Geronimo Knows + Robert Jay

Something we're good at doing on The All the Fly Kids Show is pivoting on the fly.

Since Nipsey Hussle's passing, there have been even more conversations being had among Blacks about opening businesses, community investment, putting each other on, and showing all facets of culture throughout the diaspora.

Episode 100: "Music Is the Answer - Spring Cleaning" with DJ RQ Away

Episode 98: "Who Do You Think You Are?" with Geronimo Knows + Robert Jay

Pardon our tardiness family. It's been quite a week for both of us. The good news is, Geronimo FINALLY found a great place to live and you'll be hearing episodes with just us once a month. Thank some highly valued listener feedback for this decision. This week's episode is not about Us (we'll have our thoughts on the movie on next week's episode) but is all about insecurity and entitlement.

Episode 96: "Everybody Eats" with Ashtin R. Berry

Hospitality is a fabric weaved into all our lives - for better or worse. You've probably eaten at a restaurant with waitstaff, with many of us having worked at a bar or restaurant in some capacity.

We decided to bring in someone who is working to make these experiences better for Black folks, people of color, women, LGBTQ people in particular. This week's guest is writer, consultant, and hospitality...


Episode 95: "Mardi Gras at Midnight" Live from New Orleans

Mardi Gras just passed on Tuesday and it truly is "an experience" you should have at least once.

If you haven't been to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, you'll be ready to book a flight after...
