Episode Details

Welcome back to BLK on the Scene Season 2! DeDe and Jon are back for an exciting yet slightly different season but still dedicated to sharing their love letter to Black entertainment! Though they enjoyed chatting with each other in season one, it felt like after 7 years of it just being the two of them on their yet to be launched pod, that they needed to invite some other people to the party. And that they did - they invited some of their favorite BLACK AND BRILLIANT marketers, journalists, producers and creatives to chat about their professional and personal journeys. And each guest shares their own love letters dedicated to BLK entertainment.

Additionally, DeDe and Jon shout out some of their favorite current and upcoming Blackity, Blackity, Black movies and TV shows they are looking forward to this fall and winter.
