Review: Talk That Talk

Words by Karan Teli

When it comes to dating and relationships, which is a common theme for many podcasts and talk shows nowadays, as listeners, we crave to hear unique and unfiltered perspectives and truths. That’s exactly what Talk That Talk, a new online chat show on Prime Video, delivers. The weekly show is hosted by The Receipts Podcast’s very own Audrey Indome, along with rapper Ms Banks, former Love Island star Kaz Kamwi and influencers Wunmi Bello and Queen Mojo.

Straight from episode 1, titled ‘F*ck Boys vs Good Boys’, we’re immediately introduced to our 5 hosts. All 5 have completely different backgrounds and career journeys which led them to this point, and it’s those real life experiences and dynamic between the girls that helps create authentic conversation, advice and laughs, with a live audience listening to every word.

It’s important for people to see 5 Black British women so unapologetically talk about sex and relationships on such a huge platform, and not feel like they have to watch what they say or cannot be completely honest with themselves, their co-hosts, their audience and listeners.

Episode 2, entitled ‘Keeping It Casual vs Catching Feelings’ dives into deeper and more emotional issues such as cheating and sex-positivity, showing that Prime Video have created a safe space for these black women to be honest and unashamed.

The online talk show was launched following the success of Amazon Prime’s Harlem, a comedy following four ambitious girlfriends in Harlem, New York City, which premiered in December 2021.

Harlem‘s central themes dive into the issues many women face, from careers to dating, and this is what inspired the launch of Talk That Talk. Prime video have done an exceptional job a bringing women together to discuss these issues that are so heavily featured on television shows and addressed on social media but very rarely discussed this openly and honestly in person.

Fans have been particularly complimentary of Kaz Kamwi throughout the first two episodes, praising for her ‘coming out of her shell’ and seeing a different side to the former Love Island star.

If you’re looking for the show that’s going to bring out every emotion in you over a 30 minute period, then Talk That Talk is the one. Prepare for laughs, gasps, screams and tears and keep an eye out on Prime Video’s YouTube for weekly releases.
