In addition, they will also share their wildest moments growing up, including Robyn’s rebellious streak as a teenager.

“You’ve seen us on TV for over five seasons, and while people who watch the show know a little about us, I think this podcast is going to allow you to get to know us even better and really learn our personalities and friendship,” said Dixon. “Talking with us is like talking with your favorite girlfriends, and we’re thrilled to join The Black Effect Podcast Network and reach our fans through a new platform.”

“In addition to talking about current events and topics that are useful and helpful for everyone, we’re going to talk about the ‘Reasonable Moment of the Week’ and the ‘Shady Moment of the Week.’ We’re going to give it to you raw, real, truthful and honest, with a little bit of humor,” said Bryant.
