Alana J. Webster is a fashion and feminism loving native Angeleno who hails from Venice, CA, She is the daughter of an African American retired educator for the Long Beach Unified School District and an African American judge who still works to keep LA's streets clean and safe today. It was through her parents and their colleagues that she received a vital education in African American History and Critical Race Theory. Though she spent her formative years beachside, she received a B.A in Drama (with a minor in Dance) from Ithaca College. Alana has always had a passion for the arts, and when she is not podcasting, she is looking for television shows or doing voice-overs for commercials and radio ads. Simply put, this girl doesn't shut up! Away from the mic, Alana writes for her fashion blog, Renegade of Fun, plays competitive dodgeball, and is a proud pescetarian of almost two decades. Alana and Jacklyn are stoked to apply their gifts of gab to their new podcast, Black and Yellow, and are even more excited to join the ZyteHeist family!

  • Should Black People Wear Sunscreen?
    by ZyteHeist on August 16, 2019 at 3:54 am

    ** DISCLAIMER- In the process of editing this episode, we came across a problem with the audio file. A staticky noise crept in at about the 30 minute mark. That sound is wildly unpleasant, and we did not want to subject your ears to that noise for an extended period of time. Please forgive the strange jump cut mid show, and please know that it was due to an audio issue we caught too late. ***Do Black People need to wear SPF when their melanin is inborn sunscreen? If Black don’t crack, does it get sunburned? Black People don’t get skin cancer, do they? These questions are all related to a larger conversation about sun protection in the Black community. Truth is, there is a gap of knowledge and long-term clinical studies about how the practice of sun prevention affects African Americans. Many myths exist, but in this episode Alana & Jacklyn shine light on the politics of sun protection in the Black community.Interested in checking out products you heard on today’s show?

  • To Shave or Not To Shave?
    by ZyteHeist on May 10, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    When you are a woman of color, body hair is more than biology. It’s political! The choice to keep it or cut is impacts the way that society views us & our hygiene levels. While we are in the throws of the No- Shaving Feminist movement, that choice is easier to make for some than for others.

  • Minority Millennial Burnout
    by ZyteHeist on March 14, 2019 at 5:21 pm

    Some dismiss it as a fad while others are in the grips of it. Burnout is becoming a buzzword for culture writers, and is the subject of an article written by Buzzfeed’s Anne Helen Petersen. The article is a great read (and there’s a link to it below), but fails to address what life is like when being a millennial, being burned out,and being a minority collide. In this ep, we share our thoughts on what the article gets right and fails to acknowledge about Burnout while Black or Asian. us on Instagram: @blackandyellowpodcastAlana J.

    In honor of Black History Month, Alana & Jackie will be spotlighting three African American feminists who have made great strides in the fight for female equality. First up is the woman who quite literally changed the way we talk about race & gender. She coined a phrase that provides a prism for understanding when conversations combining gender and race occur. Her work is especially noteworthy because it breaks out of the confines of African American studies, and is applicable to most other genders and marginalized groups. Who is this wonderful woman?

  • Black People: Dope By Default?
    by ZyteHeist on April 12, 2018 at 10:14 pm

    Swag. Chill. Dope. The Bomb. Breezy. Fly. All of these words are synonyms for the word “cool”. These adjectives are also commonly assigned to Black People when describing how cool they are.

In this episode, Jack and Alana (inspired by a Trevor Noah comedy special) discuss the perceived effortless cool possessed by Black People.
