New Year, New Goals, New Start – TWTCL 008

Episode 008 New Year, New Goals, New StartWe’re ready for 2015, armed with goals to achieve. We chat about the benefits of online dating in January and Kim Kardashian transforming before our very eyes. We also discuss a topic that got David Jay banned from Wikipedia—the difference between the terms “black” and “African American”—and how use of these terms influence how a person is perceived. Take a walk down memory lane with us as we reminisce about childhood television shows. We share our thoughts on how to make a fresh start in life.

Highlights

Ringing in the New Year

We didn’t do anything exciting to ring in the new year, but we did set goals, which include building a legacy, being entrepreneurial, and helping adults in their twenties and thirties make life changes through this podcast. What are your goals for 2015? Share them in the comments below or on our new year Facebook post.

Kim Kardashian’s Transformation

Somehow we ended up talking about Kim Kardashian again. She’s the cover girl for the February 2015 issue of Love magazine, and according to David Jay, she looks black. Kim looks radically differently now compared to when she first came on the scene, which isn’t surprising, but is Kim K. going to be the next Lil’ Kim with her transformation? I guess we’ll see.

The Great Race Debate

The terms “black” and “African American” are not one in the same. We break down the difference and discuss race versus ethnicity, delving beyond blacks and into the Hispanic community. In the process, you’ll discover why David Jay was banned from Wikipedia. We also discuss how use of these terms subconsciously influence people’s opinions.

Life Lesson: Making a Fresh Start in Life

We share our thoughts and experience to answer a question that was posed on the Question and Answer site Quora: How do I make a fresh start in life? The new year is the perfect time for this question when many of us are starting anew.
