Welp, I disappeared for a while there. You probably noticed. I was busy decomposing. Here's how I came back from the dead by literally tripping up Death, and a mysteriously vague hint at what was actually going on—some of which I've never talked about publicly (only Patreon folx get it). Also, some lessons I learned about going through major sh!t. // This podcast is supported by members of our Patreon!

I was an extra in a major motion picture that I can’t talk about yet. In this episode, I’ll tell you all about my experience: rehearsing with face masks, waking up at 3 am for an early call time, and throwing my guts up in the middle of it all. Glamorous. Hey, it’s life. I got back out there anyway. Just sucks that I couldn’t eat any of the delicious vegan food they provided. // This episode was sponsored by Sarah!

THE FINALE: Episode 05 of HOT CHOCOLATE WITH PHAVIE! 🌞 In this episode, Phavie shares her experiences in applying for jobs, particularly a certain experience here in New Zealand. Has removing her photo and neighborhood from her resume made a difference in getting responses from potential employers? Also, she opens up about a scarring racist experience hitchhiking. This one busted my mind. I’m at a loss for words, knowing that one of my closest friends, one of the best people I’ve ever met, has been treated so disrespectfully. By a CHILD. // To end the episode, Phavie gives us some advice for how non-black people can be better friends to black folx: LISTEN. // ABOUT THE SERIES: From February–June 2020, I lived with Phavie, a fellow traveler here in New Zealand. She’s become one of my closest friends and before her journey back home, I wanted to have a conversation with her about her experiences with racism as a Congolese-French person. // 🍁 Support The Videmus Podcast on Patreon and get juicy dark secrets: patreon.com/videmusart // ☕️ Find us everywhere @videmusart // 💀 Into dark humor?

Episode 04 of HOT CHOCOLATE WITH PHAVIE! 🌞 In this episode, we dive into the strange events at our job working night shift at an apple pack house over the New Zealand-wide Alert Level 4 in May 2020. Hearing Phavie’s perspective as a POC taught me so much; she noticed discriminatory behaviour way before I did. Phavie shares the micro-aggressions she faced from day ONE of the job—which I didn’t even see, even though I was working only 2 meters away from her. // ABOUT THE SERIES: For the last 4 months I’ve lived with Phavie, a fellow traveler here in New Zealand. She’s become one of my closest friends and before her journey back home, I wanted to have a conversation with her about her experiences with racism as a Congolese-French person. // 🍁 Support The Videmus Podcast on Patreon and get juicy dark secrets: patreon.com/videmusart // ☕️ Find us everywhere @videmusart // 💀 Into dark humor?

Episode 03 of HOT CHOCOLATE WITH PHAVIE! 🌞 In this episode, Phavie shares EVERY country she’s visited and shares some “unforgettable” experiences with racism along the way. We touch lightly on our Level 4 Quarantine experience while working essential jobs at an apple pack-house facility—and why we both quit after 2 weeks. Also, how we met back in February, and why this series is called "Hot Chocolate with Phavie.” And also (last one), why I refer to her more as my “roommate” than as my “friend.” Which is weird but it makes sense when you hear why. Kinda. // ABOUT THE SERIES: For the last 4 months I’ve lived with Phavie, a fellow traveler here in New Zealand.

Episode 02 of HOT CHOCOLATE WITH PHAVIE! 🌞 In this episode, we debrief our experience at the Wellington NZ Black Lives Matter march back in early June, and how the media surrounding the US protests has affected us down here at the bottom of the world. // For the last 4 months I’ve lived with Phavie, a fellow traveler here in New Zealand.
