The Peas are freestyling tonight’s episode. There are no notes and that means no rules. We have some hot takes on the “talking” stage, dating app personalities, and the many failures we see of trying to find love in the digital age.
The Peas are talking about conspiracy theories. Come on our journey of skepticism and cynicism. Mystery and romance. Fake News and Alternative Facts! Have you ever wondered how a conspiracy theory develops? Do you question if we are actually living in a computer simulation? Is alien life landing in New Jersey?! Well, listen to the Peas discuss some of these topics and decide for yourself what to believe. Don’t worry, we are judging you.
It’s already time to start welcoming guests into our mess! This season’s first guest is Gwladys. The topic for this episode focuses on Blackness and Black culture through the African Diaspora – but of course through the lense of Disney. The Peas and Gwladys give some hot takes, ideas on the diaspora, and question whether or not Black people can culturally appropriate one another. Hope you all enjoy this episode as much as we did making it… also, please pray for our podcast. Beyonce might get us for copyright infringement or the Beyhive might not like our critique!
Gwladys is always engaging in conversations related to Africa and the African diaspora as a whole. She’s from Togo (which is a small country in West Africa right next to Ghana) but grew up in New Jersey. She personally identifies as African-American. Gwladys only has fake twitters and instas.

The trio is back together and talking about everything from how we prioritize celebrity to what happens when we “cancel” them. The Peas discuss Swans and Love, LeBron James to Doja KKKAt, and Disrupt Theatre Company’s own local celeb, Star! How do you view celebrity and do you agree with the Peas that it’s changing?
This week, Daphnee and Jamir are discussing the ways mental illness impacts black men and black women. Star is preparing for Disrupt Theatre’s inaugural show, if you’re wondering where she is! So, sit back and listen to two Aquarians grapple with toxicity (even their own) and mental health between genders and generations.
