Sip On This

How to Make Your Anger An Asset

Late-night pioneer Robin Thede joins Ashley to answer listeners' questions about navigating working relationships, and turning pettiness into power.

We urgently need your help.  DAME reports the stories that need to be told, from perspectives that aren’t heard enough. In times of crisis it is even more critical that these voices are not overlooked, but COVID-19 has impacted our ability to keep publishing. Please support our mission by joining today to help us keep reporting.

In our season finale of Sip On This, Robin Thede, the first Black woman to be a header writer of a late-night show (The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore), and our own Ashley Nicole Black, who when she’s not pouring out advice for DAME readers and listeners is writing Emmy-winning comedy for Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, offer advice on how to navigate tricky working relationships, mandating time for self-care, and the transformative power of turning negative feedback, thoughts, and feelings, into self-affirming rocket fuel.
