From The Podcast
The Unsullied with Oreka Godis
On TUWOG (The Unsullied with Oreka Godis) we have conversations with people of African descent, swap origin stories, cultural challenges, shifting belief systems, explore the vices and crutches that define us, recommended reading and recipes that shape (subjective) success. Recorded in Lagos, Nigeria, with each guest, we explicitly tuck into family and how ‘They F*** You Up (a la Oliver James) ambition, love, sex, drugs, social media, faith, money, power and lessons learned. We look from experiences that make us a little less naive to decisions that make us more childlike. TUWOG explores transitioning through career depression, financial security, losing hope, finding unexpected gifts in moments that mean everything and nothing at all. Wanting to give up most of the time, winning the war some of the time, chalking up and dusting down battle lines of personal Vietnam’s, giving them hell and most importantly, finding out your definition of unsullied.
