Session 281: Forging a New Path with Jemele Hill

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

This week I’m joined by Jemele Hill, an Emmy Award-winning journalist, creator, and host of the podcast “Jemele Hill is Unbothered,” She’s also the founder of The Unbothered Network, a groundbreaking podcast and production company. Today she joins us to talk about her newly-released memoir Uphill, which details her upbringing in Detroit, her long-time career in sports journalism, overcoming a legacy of pain, and forging a new path. During our conversation, we discussed the considerations and discussions she had while writing about her family history, her career-defining moments and how she prioritized her mental health while writing the book.
