#HurtBae, we need to talk

So, last night Haze sent me a message on Facebook, and here’s how it went:

For those who do not know, #HurtBae is a series in The Scene’s “Love” section where exes have the opportunity to confront each other about the implosion of their relationship.  Watch the video here. This type of closure is rare when these ephemeral millennial relationships end and after watching the video, you’ll see that the emotional investment in their dynamic was completely one sided. Please believe that we will be dissecting this on a future episode of Unbasic. When he said “I did everything” and when she said “Today, I couldn’t see my life without you,” I knew they both needed to listen to the Uncuffed episode. Get yourself some boundaries, people!

What is most astounding is when she said she forgives him and he didn’t understand why he would be extended any mercy, even though that is fundamentally what love is about– the extension of grace, mercy, and charity from one person to another. However, one has to wonder whether she forgave him, or blamed herself, because that is not the same thing. Tell us what you think about #HurtBae in the comments section or on Twitter @UnbasicPodcast

Episode 3: Unleashed

This week, we’re continuing the New Year’s resolution series and talking all about finding your purpose, making the most of where you are now, and setting measurable, attainable career goals. We know that most millennials have a 9 to 5 and a 5 to 9, and we want to encourage you to see your 9 to 5 as an investment in your 5 to 9. It’s time to stop ignoring your something bigger and be you UNLEASHED!

Episode 2: Uncuffed

Most people’s New Year resolutions center on one of three things: weight, relationships, and career satisfaction. We don’t believe in resolutions, but we do believe in doing better, so we’re doing a series of podcasts on these three subjects.

To kick it off, we have an episode we’re calling “Uncuffed” because we’re both single and need for you to hear about it. In this episode, we’re talking about love languages, sex, boundaries, expectations, and making the time to love and be loved. We’re both looking for our “plus one”– where they at though? Help us out y’all and stay tuned for next week’s episode, “Unleashed,” all about working that 9 to 5 to your benefit.

Episode 1 – Introduction & The Inauguration

The first episode of Unbasic is now live for your listening pleasure! We want to say the words left unsaid in this podcast, and go beyond skimming the headlines to dig into current events, art, celebrity news, wellness, everything that is trending, and everything that isn’t.

In this first episode, we’re getting it out of the way and going political. Listen to us unpack the inauguration and recent executive orders, as well as our take on issues such as immigration, gun control, women’s healthcare, and more.

*Kelundra misspoke in this episode and accidentally said that Clarence Thomas swore in Donald Trump, but he actually swore in Mike Pence. Recognizing one’s error and correcting it is unbasic.
