#ThatBlackCouple Ep 21 – “It’s The New Year and I Ain’t Changing $#!t!”
Every year on New Year’s Day, people come up with New Year’s Resolutions for goal setting. We rebuke this notion that all the work we were doing last year wasn’t enough and take pride in not feeling the pressure to change.
In the first segment, Jenn and Daren explain why they decided to stop making New Year’s Resolutions.
In the second segment, they interrogate the concept of New Year’s Resolutions, explain why they fail, and suggest alternatives.
In the third segment, Jenn and Daren share their past failed resolutions and why they have “unburdened” themselves from strict goals.

This is an accidentally funny podcast about the realities of Blackness and adult life. We do “adult” differently. We are That Black Couple.
Our goal is to create a space for Black millennials to discuss and embody adult life on their own terms. We aren’t beholden to “traditional” gender or parenting roles, queerness is fluid and present in the ways we show up in our relationships and in the world, and we want to build community with other 30-something Black folx who are trying to figure this ish out.
