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.
