FYI05 – For Your Infotazement S01E05 – Bennus
Typically on For Your Infotazement, I chat with a handful of guests about a central topic, but this episode represents a break from that format, instead focusing on a single wide-ranging conversation with multi-hypenate entrepreneurs Jamyla Bennu and Pierre Bennu. We touch on the origin of their hair and skin care line, Oyin Handmade (and the prime lifetime objective of frizz control), enthuse about a particular sci-fi comic book, discuss social awkwardness, and generally bond over our shared plight of having restless creative natures.
Luckily for everyone involved, I’m also joined once again by the Ethel to my Lucy, comedian Ronald James, who does a sterling job with the intro (check plus plus, my good man!) and sticks around to talk about his new mattress, his new apartment, and his own encounters with Pierre and Jamyla. Basically it’s a lot of fun banter. We hope you enjoy.
You can follow Ronald on twitter @ronisunthawed, and you can hear both of us rambling about movies on Movie Schmovie, a film podcast co-co-hosted by Steve Reter.
As for the Bennus, Pierre is @exittheapple on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, whereas Jamyla is @heyjamyla on Instagram, and @oyinhandmade on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Hit up their website, exittheapple.com, for info on events and creative workspace rentals at the Exittheapple Artspace in Baltimore, MD. The space is also used to host a popup marketplace on the 2nd Sunday of every month. Makers should contact Jamyla and Pierre at email@example.com for an inexpensive vending space at the coolest popup in town. Lastly, don’t forget oyinhandmade.com for “awesometastic moisturizing hair and body care goodies.”
