From the Jill Scott/Erykah Badu Verzuz battle to Michelle Obama’s Netflix documentary “Becoming,” the sisters discuss how seeing the sisterhood living their best lives is helping them feel more hopeful about theirs. Plus, on a more s...

Plus: Sharon and Lisa are getting ready to launch a new phase of the show—The Introvert Sisters podcast...

Introverts and extroverts on lockdown together: are y’all OK? It’s hard enough dealing with opposing personality types at the best of times—but these are definitely not the best of times. Some introverts and extroverts are finding it challenging to share space with no chance of escape. Is it any wonder that the divorce rate is spiking? Plus: peer pressure can be hard, even for adults. The sisters vent about being pressured to socia...

Babyface (or as he is now called, Shadyface - Google it) and Teddy Riley did a Verzuz battle on Instagram, and it ended up being an epic fail. At least part one of it did. Part two, thankfully lived up to the hype. Lisa tells Sharon all about the shenanigans, the showboating, and the shade, and explains why she thinks that beyond a music battle, it was also a battle of introvert vs. extrovert. Plus: have you ever felt invisible? Th...

As one Facebook meme says: “The Lockdown Endureth Forever.” At least that’s what it feels like. Although, like most introverts, Sharon and Lisa prefer their own space and company (or that of a select few), staying inside and not seeing anybody else is getting a little old. Feels like we’ve gone from FOMO to FOSI (Fear Of Staying Inside). There’s isolation, and then there’s ISOLATION. If loneliness is beginning to affect you, listen...

Like so many others, Sharon and Lisa are trying to stay busy and focused during lockdown, so that the time doesn’t just drift away. Sure, Netflix and naptime are on the list, but they’ve also both started “pandemic projects,” and prioritized activities that had previously been on the back burner. It’s all about balance. Plus: Have you already started to imagine post-pandemic life? The sisters have. Listen in as they share their buc...

We’re in the midst of a global health scare, and some segments of the population seem to be in denial. It feels like they’re insisting that we all stay “positive,” smiling, cheerful and upbeat at all times, despite growing mortality numbers, and frankly, the fear that we might be personally affected by Covid-19. The sisters cry foul, and say no to toxic positivity. Plus: The pandemic has caused pandemonium on so many levels. Physic...

The Covid-19 lockdown seems to have no end in sight, and everyone is doing their best to adjust. For many people who are lucky to still have a job, this means that working remotely is the new normal.
