This is an accidentally funny podcast about the realities of Blackness and adult life. Our goal is to create a space for Black millennials to discuss and embody adult life on their own terms. We aren’t beholden to “traditional” gender or parenting roles, queerness is fluid and present in the ways we show up in our relationships and in the world, and we want to build community with other 30-something Black folx who are trying to figure this ish out. We do “adult” differently. -About Daren and Jenn- Jenn is a queer, Black feminist from Oakland. Daren is an introverted nerd and novelist from Anaheim. They are boo’ed up and have been since 2002 when they bonded over a mutual love of Brian McKnight’s “Never Felt This Way”, their favorite Brandy lyrics, and nineties TV like Family Matters, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and Living Single. It was a shared obsession with Black cultural icons, histories, and artistry that drew Jenn and Daren to one another even though they are actually completely different personality-wise. Jenn and Daren have always said to themselves, “Wouldn’t it be cool if we had a show?” Well, no major networks have reached out yet. So, until that happens, you can find the them here, sharing their views on race and culture and everything in between. They are young thirty-somethings who have been married since for over a decade. Jenn and Daren have three beautiful, brilliant, radical, snarky kids who play no games.

Customer Reviews

Love love love

This has easily become a part of my regular podcast listening. In such a large geographic entity as the United States is, being able to listen into frank, organic and spontaneous conversation on current events like this from black perspectives isn't always easy so I'm very grateful that this show exists.

Great, Thoughtful Conversations

Loved the recent episode about Black women and erasure. Y'all came with receipts! I was nodded my head in agreement the whole show. Also, loved the episode about pregnancy and your deliberate and inclusive language (e.g., pregnant people). Great work!


I'm am the opposite of their demographic so if you are too... LISTEN! While this is not the intention of their podcast, if you're smart (yes, I just called myself smart!), you will give yourself the gift of listening to Jenn & Daren. They have a great dynamic and the subjects are ones that you are probably interested in but they bring a deeper perspective and connect the dots in a way that changes the way you see & think about things. I've been a follower of their blog, Water Cooler Convos, and probably the most important takeawy for me as a reader has been to shut up & listen. I find myself still with the knee-jerk reaction of wanting to say something but trust me, if you shut up & listen you will be rewarded. When I think about the best podcasts they make me feel like I want to hang out with the host and have a conversation. That Black Couple makes you feel like you wish you were neighbors!
