Hosts DaLyah Jones and Jacquelyn Carter talk about underrepresented communities and issues related to the black southern experience. Two & Fro not only represents the physical looks of the hosts, but the constant movement and evolution these two black young adults experience navigating through their daily lives. Episode topics include the black southern dialect, missing black women in southern hip-hop and black women activists of the rural south. Through the podcast, they aim to speak to and help others gain an understanding of a population not catered to in public radio and podcasting. They also work to curate, validate, and relate to those who understand the black southern experience. Two & Fro is a podcast hosted and produced by DaLyah Jones and Jacquelyn Carter. Jones is from deep East Texas and Carter is from the suburbs of Houston.

Need more shows like this!!!
Two and Fro is definitely a force to be reckoned with in the world of podcasts. Not only is the show genuinely funny and insightful, but truly relatable. I feel that Jones and Carter delve into topics that most curators either overlook or dismiss for fear of sounding like the truly offensive “angry black woman”. That surely is not the case with these two young women. Their rhetoric and dialogue is respectful, lighthearted and interesting to say the least. Looking forward to listen to future shows!
