Rants & Randomness is a podcast that covers all things pop culture and relevant to our lives, through the lens of our resident Side-Eye Sorceress, Luvvie Ajayi. On the podcast, she talks about her most pressing rants, raves and faves from this topsy-turvy world. Plus, she is joined by special guests that you know and love (and guests that you need to know). The best feedback she’s received is that her voice is soothing, like a cup of Earl Grey tea at the end of a tough day. Luvvie mixes her insights on a world gone mad with feel-good stories and candid chat with media leaders, tastemakers, rule breakers, and people on the rise. This podcast will make you laugh, and you’ll always walk away learning something new and/or considering a new perspective. Luvvie has interviewed the legendary actress Jenifer Lewis, Myleik Teele (CEO of Curlbox), Eunique Jones Gibson (founder of Dream Village), and Abiola Oke (CEO of OkayAfrica and OkayPlayer).
