On this episode of Our Body Politic, guest host Mara S. Campo looks at the idea of the “soft life” as a form of self-care for Black women. Mara speaks with Dr. Judith Joseph, a board-certified psychiatrist, and Chair of Women in Medicine Collaborative at Columbia University’s Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons about the concept. Mara also talks with the founder of Saddie Baddies, Priscilla O. Agyeman, about using her skills to teach women how to embrace a soft life. We round out the show with Zee Clarke, author of Black People Breathe who offers practical methods to embrace rest.
