Kreyolicious: What’s your fave episode so far?
Boe: Episode #23 titled “Lesbians and DMs” some friends in LGBTQ community scare there experiences and educate us on a community that Is kind of taboo in Haitians world. In Episode #28 titled Dominican Republic and Haiti: Same Island”, we educate the listeners on two side of the same island. Episode #52 titled “It’s Okay to Cry” was a very vulnerable episode. I honestly didn’t want to do that episode, but it was important for my co-host to share, so I had to support and share with her. Very therapeutic episode.
