Welcome to Drinking With Blerds where two Caribbean-ish black millennial professionals unpack all the mysteries of life over drinks. Tune in as we discuss things like bad high school memories, adulting, being black and young in the workplace, a bunch of things going on in popular culture, all the the problematic shit going on in the world, and pretty much anything we want to talk about. Also we’re petty so listeners beware. Cheers!

In this episode we welcome back longtime supporter Dr. Keyanah Nurse to unpack the implications of Beyoncé wearing this diamond.
