Too Many Pigeons In America ft. Chidi Ashley

Season 5, Ep. 23

With Summer ghosting us, Fall sending “you up?” texts and America doing America we ask ourselves: Is it time to slide? Black people across the globe are leaving urban areas and going rural and remote to find peace and balance: So should we? On this episode we’re packing bags and figuring out where do we want to live, is it safe for us there and what are our responsibilities to these countries and communities. We’ll also get a visit from our 8 figure sista, entrepreneur and travel expert Chidi Ashley. She’ll share tips for getting that visa, how to travel ethically and which country she’s not pulling up to anytime soon.
