Today we’d like to introduce you to Cassandra Carter and Brittney Jeffery.
Cassandra and Brittney, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Afterglow started as an idea between two friends who were on a mission to create a space for people of color to talk about sex and relationships openly. We would always have engaging, interesting and hilarious conversations amongst our friends and decided to make it a podcast, where listeners could share their experiences and we could normalize some topics that may not usually be talked about in a public setting.
Has it been a smooth road?
It hasn’t always been a smooth road, we often find ourselves getting burnt out. Our seasons are 16 episodes and we are producing and editing ourselves. Along with maintaining our full-time jobs, and school and social life we get tired.
Please tell us more about your work. What do you guys do? What do you specialize in? What sets you apart from competition?
We are a sex-positive podcast ran by women of color, specifically, we are black women. We have been noted as being relatable and for providing an opening into a conversation we often are left out of. We are grateful enough to be apart of a movement of sex-positivity within the black community and we feel like we are pioneering something big, which makes us very proud.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Hopefully, the industry keeps moving towards elevating voices in the sex-positivity movement and continues to hold space for the conversation of sex and relationships without watering it down.
