About The “It” Cast
The “It” Cast: Real Talk is our community outreach podcast that aims to increase diversity in conversations on health and sexuality. Through our work we are creating a world where all people feel loved, honored and respected.
Sex is often shrouded by shame, fear and taboo. We empower everyone to have a happy, healthy relationship with sexuality by providing access to the resources our listeners care about. The “It” Cast: Real Talk is hosted by Nika Cherrelle.
