Crystal’s Smitten List: Tea, 2 Brown Girls, Kid President


This week, I’m positively smitten with…

1. Tea: I’ve been battling a cold over the last week, and there’s nothing like some hot tea to soothe my throat. Last year, I made it a point to try various types of tea and now I drink it whenever I can!

2. 2 Brown Girls: I don’t listen to many podcasts, but I listen to 2 Brown Girls every single week without fail. Its creators, twenty-somethings Fariha and Zeba, talk about all things pop culture, but from an intersectional feminist’s perspective. Given all the media I consume, it’s nice to listen to their take on things to see things in a new light. The women are funny, smart, and insightful.

3. Kid President: After a long week, I stumbled across a new Kid President video. If you don’t know Kid President, you should familiarize yourself immediately. He’s an adorable little kid who makes uplifting videos for the YouTube channel SoulPancake and I promise that at least one of his videos will make you feel like a better person. His latest, “Kid President’s Letter To A Person On Their First Day Here,” was exactly what I needed. It has officially joined the ranks with my other favorite Kid President videos, like “20 Things We Should Say More Often.” I hope you like it, too.

What are you positively smitten with this week?


  1. Man that Kid President video got me crying! I really needed that. Thanks. 🙂

  2. Ah, thanks for the heads up about the 2 brown girls podcast! It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for.
