2020, a year that many of us probably want to forget, was a rough year for so many people. But it wasn’t just a rough year for those fighting COVID, or working people being laid off from their jobs, it was also a rough time for the woman who does not need an introduction: Hot Girl Meg. Megan Thee Stallion was shot by rapper Tory Lanez after an argument broke out between her friends in the car. Video footage from that night shows Me...

Welcome back to Saucy but Sweet with Ali McPherson. We are back with another episode of your favorite society & culture podcast. If you’re anything like me, you are sick of talking about it, but still on the edge of your seat, wondering what is going to happen next. If you watched the Oscars, you know what I’m talking about. The slap heard around the world. The Will Smith and Chris Rock debacle still has everybody talking and w...

Welcome back to Saucy but Sweet with Ali McPherson. Apparently, judging by the titles of our recent episode and this upcoming one, we are on a “F*ckin” roll, haha see what we did there? Anyway, Last week we talked about Kanye West and the complexities surrounding both loving and hating an artist, someone who may be a creative genius but has asshole tendencies. This week we are talking about another well-known celebrity who has beco...

Welcome back to Saucy but Sweet with Ali McPherson. We hope you missed us as much as we missed you. This week we are talking about someone who has been making headlines for over a decade and who has shown the media his genius, his scars, and his darkness. Has anybody else been thinking what we’re thinking? What the fuck are we gonna do about Kanye? Many of us grew up listening and looking up to Kanye West, not only for his extraord...

Welcome back to Saucy but Sweet with Ali McPherson. This week we will be talking about the realities of toxic relationships and what the media typically does not show when discussing these relationships bounded by trauma and anxiety. Every so often we’ll hear about celebs like rapper DaBaby and DaniLeigh’s relationship fiasco and instead of portraying the truth about manipulation and psychological abuse oftentimes what we hear is t...

Welcome back to Saucy but Sweet with Ali McPherson. This week we will be discussing the end of an era, a part of culture that has in many ways established how we talk about blackness, and transformed the ways we discuss black stories, particularly Black women’s stories. If y’all have been paying attention, you know my love for Issa Rae runs deep. Her ability to create a show that has transformed my life (and so many others) is rema...

Welcome back to Saucy but Sweet with Ali McPherson.  This week we will be discussing our complicated, and sometimes straight out toxic relationships with social media. Some days we feel we are able to live our lives without it, and others we rely on it consistently. Social media is how we connect, promote ourselves and our businesses and oftentimes, seek validation. It can do a lot of good in the world, and harm. How do we stay con...

Welcome back to Saucy but Sweet with Ali McPherson. This week we will be talking about one of my favorite topics and something that remains to be bittersweet for so many people: exes. We haven’t really spoken about exes since Love is a Gamble.

Welcome back to Saucy but Sweet with Ali McPherson. This week we will be talking about a topic that has been on my mind ever since I was a little girl. Discrimination and prejudice based on one’s complexion typically darker complexions, and the hierarchy of lighter skin tone. We refer to it as colorism. Or as Queen Lupita Nyong'o calls it, the daughter of racism. In our society color dictates how people view us, and how we view...

Welcome back to Saucy but Sweet with Ali McPherson. This week is a little controversial, or maybe A LOT controversial. We’re going to be talking about cultural appropriation, who is allowed to do it, and who isn’t. Is it possible to admire a culture without appropriating or is admiration the root of cultural appropriation? I’ll tell you this now, I do not have all the answers, so to help push this discussion further I will be talki...

Welcome back to Saucy but Sweet with Ali McPherson. The last time we spoke we got into sexy topics, sex, romance, and dating during this hot rona summer. This week, we are talking about something not as sexy, but definitely worth a chat now more than ever: the white gaze on black life in the media and how black voices and talents are underrepresented. Being able to showcase your talents to the world should be a freedom for all rega...
