COLOUR OUT THE BOX

By Colour Out The Box

“Simply conversation between friends….” COLOUR OUT THE BOX. Started as way for host Mo (@moactually) to document her weekly conversations with friends, about their everyday lived experiences, has now grown into an online community that gives a voice to people of the African and Afro Caribbean Diaspora to tell stories and share their unique take, all whilst navigating the complexities of modern life. A podcast that covers everything from racial politics in the workplace, the perils of online dating, absurd happenings in pop-culture or even pondering what it means to be Black and British. Just a few of the topics, we open up for discussion giving our personal perspective. “I'm Mo (@MoActuallyUK) the voice behind the microphone, founder, producer and terrible tea maker. I love podcasts, creating and consuming, so COLOUR OUT THE BOX, remains a labour of love. I wanted to create something that someone like me *Coughs in their 30s* would listen to and talk about within my circle of friends “. Thoughts, comments, questions and feedback all welcome so contact us on social media @ColourOutTheBox #ColourOutTheBox. Or if you have a little more to articulate why not email us at: ColourOutTheBox@gmail.com.
