Hey there BNA listeners. I hope you're all doing your best during these difficult times. 

Today we bring to you a different kind of BW episode. Black N Animated was reached out to by Verbum Dei High School, an all boys Catholic, Jesuit, college and career preparatory school in LA. They wanted to hear what we had to say about working in the animation industry and what advice we could give for those in high school still investigating their careers, and college prep.  

Join Bre, Waymond, Lorraine and Neil as they offer some good words of advice and as per usual, get some anime knowledge in there. 

Any youngsters still in high school looking into animation, this is the episode for you!

It's a family thing.. a family...Black N Animated~ 

Hey there animation family, we're back again this week with another BW, WB..( It's been three seasons... it don't matter) episode.  This time Bre and Way take a look at another Bruce W Smith classic. One that a lot of young black folks grew up watching in the early 2000s on Disney Channel. The Proud Family! 

 Here a little discussion about 3 episodes  "Behind Family Lines", "I had a Dream", and "Culture Shock." Each episode diving into something relevant to all our lives.  The different types of family dynamics within black culture, Islamophobia following the attacks on 9/11 and how we can convey the message of unity to young children, and teaching kids about racism and black struggles.

Hey howdy hey,

It's here. It's the beginning of the end.... or... just this season. Bre and Way wrap up their jam packed season 2 with a few kind words of thank yous , goofs and what they're looking forward to in the awaited 3rd season. Not to mention the slow but steady growth beyond just being a podcast. 

Slow and steady wins the race. Things are cooking. 

Stay tuned for more BNA to come next year and coming events as well.
