We are creatives


Black Balance Podcast


The Canvas

A canvas shows us many different art elements coming together to create a whole picture. With that said there’s many different elements that make us who we are. We take the time to focus on the mind, body, and soul.  We get more personal and share stories as they relate to health, athletics, finances, beauty, relationships, spirituality, and food for thought.


Creative Block

We’ll take a break from all the chatter and play a game. We’ll also close out the show by saying our Top Creative for the week unless our top creative is already on the show which is usually the case!








Ep:18 Actor/Comedian Rod Minger and friend of the show Monique join us as we touch on tipping in the service industry, Mariah Carey's high demands, and Kendu possibly inspiring another broken-hearted Mary J. Blige album. But all of these topics combined couldn't make America great again. You guessed it. We're gonna bump Trump in that topic lineup somewhere.

Ep12: Bruh, Rock the Vote. Get it? Kinda like Barack the Vote? Tee hee. We're having a real, grown up conversation and owning our part in the nation's fault. We're not as well-versed in political acumen as we can be, and historically speaking, we don't vote in local/mid-term elections. But that changes now! Black Balance Podcast is on a mission to learn and do better, and we're inviting you on this journey with us so you, too, can learn and/or brush up on some things. Plus, we got a little stuck with some fact checking, so you political buffs out there are welcome to email us your thoughts to All questions and comments are welcome. Happy listening!

Ep11: Risqué Business. veryone knows what a smart phone is, but what about a smart condom?  I there a button you push to make it bullet proof or STD proof?  Is it tear-resistant?  And when it comes to bringing sex objects into the bedroom, why stop at a condom?  With the questionable bullet proof condom, we'd say try it with a bullet.  We're not saying that the condom is actually bullet proof cause the bullet we're talking about will rock your world (according to our Sex Connoisseur anyway).  What we're doing a poor job of trying to say is....just listen to the dern episode. It's all about sex!

Homegrown Terrorist. Americans are not perfect and have no business labeling or stereotyping an entire group of people, demeaning them in the hearts and minds of citizens in this nation and of those around the world.  Here to set the record straight is American-born Muslim Tayyaba.  She has that in common with the Orlando shooter but abhors his behavior just like the rest of us, so grab a pen and pad and prepare to take notes while she educates us on all things Pakistan, Middle East, and Muslim.
