If you haven’t heard yet, I officially launched my second podcast Majoring in Her. It’s a spinoff series from the original Majoring in Me, and focuses on the beloved character Denise as she tries to balance college with her new boo. And that balancing act is nothing short of difficult, and yet, it’s awkwardly funny.
Speaking of funny, listeners of my first show shouldn’t expect my new series to be as heavy on the dramatics. After all, I’ve listed Majoring in Her as a fiction comedy. This new endeavor of mine comedically explores some of the issues all of us have probably encountered trying to be in love and yet pursue success on a professional level. And what makes this even more special, is this exploration occurs through the eyes of a 20-year-old Black woman in undergrad. Oh, and in the year 2007.
Now let me just say, some listeners of the Denise-led series have already taken the time to let me know the show reminds them of Insecure and Awkward Black Girl. Which are huge compliments that I humbly receive. Issa Rae is definitely someone I look up to and admire. But while my show has drawn the comparisons, I’m proud to say that I’ve also been told the series reflects my own unique writing style.
So make sure you check out Majoring in Her. It’s now streaming on all major podcast platforms.
Today is the day folks. The third season of Majoring in Me the Podcast has officially started. As I’ve previously stated, the next eight episodes of the drama will be a roller coaster ride for Tristan as he continues trying to figure out family relationships while also pledging to become a member of Beta Kappa Nu. Plus, he’s back to being single. And I strongly suggest you all pay attention to one of the supporting characters that have been with Tristan from the beginning. Not to give too much away, but one of them has quite the surprise development come the season finale.
So without further delay, make sure you check out the first two episodes of the new season on any major podcasting platform. That’s right, I decided to release two episodes on premiere day. Enjoy!
It’s time. After months of writing, recording, and producing, I’m happy to finally bring you all Season Three of Majoring in Me the Podcast, premiering October 25, 2021. These upcoming eight episodes were fun and interesting to write as I was focused on taking the story forward, and yet, I wanted to revisit some dynamics from the first season. The end result is a product you all will hopefully be excited to hear as listeners. Now with an official start date to the season announced, I decided to answer a few of the questions I’ve received about the show.
Well folks, we are down to one last episode for the season. I just wanted to thank each of you for joining me on this ride. I wasn’t sure how season two would be perceived, but I’m so thankful that a number of you have told me you’ve really enjoyed it. It makes me feel good as a writer and creator.
I’m here to hit the reset button on the release of Season 2 of Majoring in Me the Podcast. Long story short, my initial release rollout hit a snag with some production issues. However, that turned out to be a blessing in disguise. The extra time gave me the opportunity to think about the future of not only the audio drama, but upcoming projects I’m attempting to develop. And with that said, let’s get to some important announcements.
First, the Season 2 premiere will officially drop on Monday, February 15, 2021, on all major podcasting platforms, including my newly added channel on YouTube. I honestly can’t wait for you all to hear where the story of Tristan and company is headed in his second semester. Not to give too much away, but the introduction of new characters brings on even more drama than last season, and somebody hits rock bottom.
Hey folks! We’re back for Season 2 of Majoring in Me the Podcast. Like last season, Tristan is still on his journey of adulting and self-discovery in college. However, the drama of this new season shocks even me, and I wrote it.
We’ve made it folks. We’ve made it to the end of season one. This has been an incredible experience writing, recording, and producing each episode. To the voice actors that dedicated their time and talent, I appreciate you more than you know. To the incredible audio editor I worked with, let me just say, you were very helpful throughout this entire process. And to fans of the show, my gratitude for you runs deep.
Hey folks. I’m just going to get right to it. Go check out my scripted series Majoring in Me the Podcast! The first five episodes are up on major podcasting platforms, and I’m getting great feedback from people. And to those people, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
There is so much that goes into each of these episodes, so hearing the positive compliments truly means a lot. (By the way, I now know why Issa hasn’t let us fans pressure her into making Insecure an hour-long show. It’s a ton of work.)
Now for those who haven’t started listening yet, you’re missing out on the story of a young Black gay man trying to awkwardly navigate his way through college. But then again, I don’t know how things wouldn’t get a little “awkward” when you’ve lived all your life faking it as a heterosexual boy to then start living as a gay man (without “practice” or “guidance”). And then on top of that, you’re forced into building a relationship with a parent that pretty much ghosted you since infancy.
However, before I give away too much, just go listen to Majoring in Me the Podcast. And if you’ve already heard the podcast and are a fan, like it, subscribe, and share the link.
Finally! I can finally tell y’all what I’ve been working on (and yes, I said y’all). Without further delay, I introduce the scripted drama, Majoring in Me the Podcast. During this particular season in life, I felt led to create something, and this newest endeavor is my labor of love. Look, I realize it’s not the advice podcast a number of you have been asking me for, but please give this one a chance, and know that I’m still hammering out the details on the other project.
So back to Majoring in Me the Podcast. It’s NOT an audiobook. While the podcast is loosely based on the book series Majoring in Me, they are definitely not the same thing. I wrote a script for each episode, which includes some original characters, different plot twists, and fresh surprises that make the podcast stand out from the book series. The nuances of Majoring in Me the Podcast were fun to create, and even more enjoyable to hear once everything came into place.
Rather than talk more about it, listen to the trailer below. If you like what you hear, check out the first two episodes on Apple, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or your preferred platform and subscribe to be notified when new episodes are released. Oh, and spread the word.
And as always nothing but love,
I sincerely hope all is well, and that everyone is doing what they can to be the very best version of themselves. What I mean by that, is I hope each of you is making a valiant effort to live life and not just survive it. I recently published a post about the difference between living and surviving. In short, I was encouraging people to pursue their calling in life, because it’s a sad existence not to acknowledge and excel in your destiny. Anyway, that brings me around to today’s post.
