Going Conscious

Jun 8, 2022

Josh Rivers is the creator and host of the award-winning podcast Busy Being Black, which centres on the lives and experiences of queer Black people from across the world.


Josh and I had hardly spoken since we were at university together, and we had a lot to catch up on. I’ve been admiring the important platform he is building for queer black people to feel seen, heard and loved.


In this episode we talk about black queer theory and magical realism, intentional language, how to be complicated, battling the intellectual and the physical, the very difficult journey towards self awareness and how to access the people put on your path to help you.
