The So-Called Oreos Podcast is hosted by three friends who identify as being labeled an “oreo,” a term describing a person who is “black on the outside and white on the inside.” Each episode, Kia, Janae and Amari discuss all the awkwardness, hardship and hilarity of being labeled “too black” or “too white” in society and how this effects our everyday life.

“So You Want to Take Part in the Great Reverse Migration”

It is almost officially that one year mark from when lockdowns swept America and the world because of Covid -19. Kia and Janae reminisce on the initial shock of events in March 2020 and Janae explains why she is hyped to be qualified for the vaccine. To start off the topic of discussion, the Oreos explain the concept of the "Great Reverse Migration" from Charles M Blow and the reason why Black Americans moving back to the South becomes more appealing each day. Kia and Janae are later joined by friends Lex and Gena, a gay couple who met in New York and decided to get hitched and move to Atlanta, GA to start their lives. Lex and Gena give us the pros and cons of moving back to the South and suggestions for those wanting to take part in the Great Reverse Migration. Lex explains how she went from being an EMT in New York to a Pet Stylist in Atlanta and doubling her income and having more time and money in Atlanta.
