Season 1 Episode 8: Kelechi Okafor And Creative Sparks

This week we welcome writer, actor, speaker and person behind Kelechnekoff studio, Kelechi Okafor to the podcast. We speak about being present, where Kelechi draws her creative spark from and how she establishes boundaries when it comes to social media usage when with her child.

Kelechi is a recent contributor to the anthology, 'Who's Loving You', love stories by women of colour, edited by Sareeta Domingo, which is out now on Trapeze Books. She can be found at @kelechnekoff on most social media platforms. Nikesh is the author of the recent memoir, Brown Baby: A Memoir Of Race Family And Home.

How do we raise our kids with joy and wonder in uncertain and – let’s face it – increasingly bleak times?

This is the question explored in weekly podcast Brown Baby, hosted by writer (and dad of two) Nikesh Shukla. Inspired by his forthcoming memoir, Brown Baby: A Memoir of Race, Family and Home, each week Nikesh invites fellow parents of brown babies - writers, musicians, chefs, comedians, actors and more - to talk about their parenting journeys and the highs and lows they’ve experienced along the way.

A frank, funny and poignant look at parenting, Brown Baby will spark honest, self-effacing conversation about how we tell our kids about the world. Featuring parenting fails, plus the best (and worst) advice Nikesh and his guests have ever received, this is the comforting, uplifting podcast for anyone who’s ever found themselves searching for answers in a sleep-deprived Google hole.
