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.

This article was made possible because of the generous support of DAME members.  We urgently need your help to keep publishing. Will you contribute just $5 a month to support our journalism?

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.

Wait, Keep Sipping! Catch up on previous episodes and subscribe at AppleStitcher, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. Season two is coming soon! If you have a question for Ashley, write to her via [email protected]. And if you want more of Ashley’s advice, you can read her column here.

Before you go, we hope you’ll consider supporting DAME’s journalism.

Today, just tiny number of corporations and billionaire owners are in control the news we watch and read. That influence shapes our culture and our understanding of the world. But at DAME, we serve as a counterbalance by doing things differently. We’re reader funded, which means our only agenda is to serve our readers. No both sides, no false equivalencies, no billionaire interests. Just our mission to publish the information and reporting that help you navigate the most complex issues we face.

But to keep publishing, stay independent and paywall free for all, we urgently need more support. During our Spring Membership drive, we hope you’ll join the community helping to build a more equitable media landscape with a monthly membership of just $5.00 per month or one-time gift in any amount.
