This is the last episode of the debut season of Speakeasy with Denene and I promise you, I’m so pleased with the work that we presented to you. What a time we had deep-diving into each of the passwords and inviting people I love and admire into the Speakeasy with Denene space to celebrate and examine and dissect blackness. A special thank you to my amazing producer, Sean Powers, and also to Keocia Howard, our dope editor with the keen listening ear. I learned so much under their tutelage, most importantly a new kind of storytelling that I’d never done before, but enjoy in ways that are distinctive from any other kind of storytelling I’ve ever done.
Please, if you haven’t already, take a listen to the rest of Season 1’s episodes—password: LOVE, password: FLY, password: BEAUTY, password: BLACK, password: FLOWER, and password: FREEDOM—get to it! Check out my “Denene’s Favorite Things” episode, too, while you’re at it. Our show is available on all podcast platforms, including Stitcher, Spotify, Apple Podcasts.
Thank you so much for listening! And until the next Speakeasy, be easy.
