MMM Podcasts

A New Perspective

This week, Amber & Justin talk about Building a Brand! They start off with their Pre-spectives (aka all the experience they had in the past with starting or helping to build brands), then they’re joined by Rochelle Belle, who recently launched a new brand centered on her dog: @IAmOliverBitches!

Rochelle talks about the decision-making process that went into coming up with the name and personality, and how she turned it into a book, “Oliver the Dog’s 30 Small Bits of Wisdom.”

After the interview, Amber & Justin give Rochelle some “next steps” to continue growing her brand, and then discuss the brands they’ve been working on lately and how that process has been.

A New Perspective on Branding

Broads You Should Know

This week, the Broads cover Lili’uokalani, the first and last Queen of the Hawaiian Kingdom before it was illegally overthrown.

She fought her entire life to maintain the independence of the Hawaiian Kingdom, and attempted to rewrite the country’s Constitution to ensure that Hawaii was for Hawaiians. Unfortunately, she lost the battle, and the way she lost it is truly heartbreaking.

The MMM Watchmen Podcast

This week, Amber & Justin break down Season 1, Episode 5 of the hit HBO television series Watchmen, entitled, “Little Fear of Lightning.”

We finally get a look at Looking Glass’s backstory and how it ties into the original Watchmen comic. After the episode, stay tuned to listen to a SPOILER segment where they discuss the full season and how episode 5 gave us clues to the ending.

Jeremiah Neil & Monica Soriano of TechtonicPop cover their careers on this week’s episode, starting with their blow-up while they were still in school in Atlanta, all the way through to their breakup. But if the rumors we’ve been hearing are true, Crime Mob isn’t down and out yet.

Social Media Tip of the Week

We all want bigger numbers, higher engagement, more likes… but how can you do that without “selling out” or sacrificing who you are?

Instagram PRO TIP: Be Genuine

You see it because we all see it: It seems like the people who get the biggest numbers, the most views, and make the most money are the people who are playing a character, being as loud as possible, or acting a fool.

That method doesn’t work for everyone, and it certainly doesn’t lead to happiness. If you want people to follow you because they like you and the content you’re creating, you need to make sure your content is unique and engaging. The only way to do that is to put into it something that absolutely no one else can: YOU!

If you’re feeling loud one day, put it on the gram! But don’t do it unless it’s really you. Don’t do it because you feel like you’re supposed to. Your audience is going to respond naturally to everything that you are, so let them see the real you.


Thank you so much for reading, we’ll be back next week with another wrap-up and hopefully some very exciting news for what’s coming next from MMM.

A New Perspective

This week, actor Alec Wilson (Broad City, Shared Rooms) stopped by A New Perspective to share his knowledge of Dungeons and Dragons, being a Dungeon Master, and how playing the collaborative tabletop game actually helps build useful life skills, like… how can you get someone to do what you want? How do you tell an engaging story that keeps people coming back for more? And how do you know if you’re ready for something new?

After the interview, Amber-Tiana & Justin Xavier discuss their experiences with collaborative storytelling: Amber with live-streaming and keeping her audience actively engaged for hours at a time, and Justin with screenwriting, and how the collaborative process can be wonderful if done right, and completely maddening when wrong.

Broads You Should Know

This week, Sam Eggers teaches Sara Gorsky & Justin Xavier about the one and only Eartha Kitt!

Born to a single mother, Eartha never knew who her father was. Being a mixed-race child, she faced tremendous discrimination from white and black people alike at a very early age. She persevered, however, and created a one-woman show that was so powerful and moving that Orson Welles plucked her from obscurity to make her a superstar. The story doesn’t end there, however. Check out the podcast to hear about being Blacklisted by POTUS, the search for her father, and her political activism! Or head to http://www.BroadsYouShouldKnow.com for more info!

The 16th Minute with TechtonicPop

Jeremiah Neil & Monica Soriano started The 16th Minute to focus on the careers of musicians and performers whose careers were on the rise and then hit a plateau. This week, they focus on Carly Rae Jepsen, whose 2012 song “Call Me Maybe” was an international success. Since then, she’s continued to put the same amount of effort and talent into her music, but none of her work has hit the mainstream the way Call Me Maybe did.

Follow her career from its beginnings on Canadian Idol to the present day on this week’s episode!

Social Media Tip of the Week

We all want bigger numbers: more likes, more followers, a more engaged audience… but how do we get that without “selling out” or sacrificing who we are?

Instagram PRO TIP: Direct Commenting

People aren’t following based on the hashtags that you use nearly as often as they were a few years ago. However, hashtags can be useful to find people who have similar interests. Scroll through the hashtag page and *comment* on photos and videos that you find. Engage with the people who have already commented. The more genuine you are, the better the results you will see. When other people / accounts see this type of interaction, they are far more likely to visit your page. From there, it’s on you to make sure you’re posting consistent, engaging content.

For now, get out there, get commenting, and boost those numbers!

Social Media Marketing Tip of the Week

Match Your Content to the Platform (& Vice-Versa)

The type of content your business or brand should be producing depends heavily on where your audience is and their buying habits. Although your content should have a consistent feel and message across social media platforms, you should still tailor each piece of media to the platform you’re posting on.

IGTV videos are growing in popularity and are typically some of the most engaging content on that platform. But if you’re on TikTok, people aren’t there to watch a 4 minute video. How can you get your message across in a shorter amount of time, and should you say it a different way?

Say you saw a viral video on YouTube and you want to capitalize on a new trending topic to draw attention to your brand. It might make the most sense to create a video for YouTube… but if that market is already oversaturated with copycats and people who beat you to the punch, you might want to evolve the trend to another platform, or comment on it in a specific way rather than trying to mimic at all.

Whatever you’re selling or promoting, make sure you utilize the strengths of each individual platform to tailor your content to the audience. People are on the app or the site because they like what’s already there. Don’t try to change their minds.

Thank you!

Thank you for reading. We’ll be back next week with another MMM roundup and a brand new social media marketing tip.

When Is It A Good Idea To “Break Up” With Your Parents?

Growing up in the midwestern United States, there were a few common adages about family that were spoken aloud & passed around almost like mantras. “Family is forever.” “The only people you can count on to love you are your family.” “There’s nothing worse a person can do than to turn their backs on family.”

But what if your family is toxic? What happens if your family refuses to acknowledge your feelings, or the ways that they’ve hurt you, and they tell you to your face that they refuse to change? That the problem, in this relationship, is actually you?

Source: https://www.quickanddirtytips.com/health-fitness/mental-health/how-to-handle-a-toxic-family-member

Sometimes, family isn’t everything. Sometimes your family is more of a poison for your life than if they weren’t in it at all. It’s difficult to recognize the symptoms, as it is in any toxic or abusive relationship, but the correct choice is the same: cut those ties before they drive you mad.

Signs That You May Need to Call it Quits

How do you know if it’s the right decision to end a relationship with your parents?

It can be a very difficult question to answer. You have to ask yourself: Do I feel good when I’m with them? Do they make me feel good with their actions and words? Do they make me feel bad about myself? Do they make me feel bad more often than they make me feel good? Do they listen to me and understand my feelings, or do they make fun of me or tell me I’m making up memories to try to hurt them? Life is about being happy. Sometimes, you can’t be happy if your parents are in your life.

Psychotherapist Ewa Chalimoniuk says, “Frankly, children cut ties with their parents because this situation is never going to be resolved. These abused or invisible children will continue to be confronted with repeated rejection, even years later, when they’re fully grown.”

In terms of what this repeated rejection looks like, she says, “…at some point the mistreated adult child builds up the courage to remind their parents about their wrongdoings, and demands respect and approval for their decisions. He or she hopes that their parents will admit to their faults and that they will eventually be accepted. These grown-up children aren’t looking for apologies–they are still full of anger and resentment–they simply want acknowledgement of the suffering they endured.”

When asked what the typical response to this is in a toxic & abusive relationship looks like, she said, “[the parents say,] ‘What are you talking about?!’ or ‘You’re making this up!’ One of my patients was sexually abused by her father. After years of therapy…she decided to confront her dad. All she heard from him was, ‘You got what you asked for.’ [And]…her mother supported her father’s opinion.”

If this sounds like your relationship dynamic with your parents, it might be time to end things. If your family can’t even give you acknowledgement that it’s possible that they’ve hurt you, they will never be able to truly love or respect you as an individual. Instead, they will cling to their idea of you, of who you’re “supposed” to be, and they will never let you be.

What Do I Do?

If you do decide to terminate a relationship with your parents, it can be incredibly painful. You’re cutting off a piece of yourself, whether you want to admit it or not. Separation from a parent is like cutting off a rotting, festering limb. You can survive it, but it won’t be without consequence, possibly for the rest of your life. The benefit, of course, is that the infection won’t spread to the rest of your body.

If it’s possible to heal your relationship with your parents (and only you know if that’s actually possible), then you owe it to yourself to try. If your parents, however, are unwilling to change their behavior even for the sake of your emotional well-being, it’s time to end the relationship.

For me, personally, I can’t remember a single time I went home to my family and left feeling better about myself. Most of the time, they made me feel crazy, told me that I was “ungrateful,” or made fun of my feelings. They called me names, and when I asked them to stop, that only made it worse. I can’t tell you the number of times that my mother would say something incredibly hurtful, and I would respond with anger, and she would say that it was my fault I felt that way. More specifically, she told me nearly every day that I had “serious anger issues.” I thought that was true for a long, long time. Until I stopped talking to her… and my anger “issues” disappeared.

Other Perspectives

On an episode of the podcast A New Perspective titled “on Breaking Up With Your Parents,” three people discuss their reasons for cutting off their toxic parents and how it has affected them since.



Podcast logo, “A New Perspective,” hosted by Justin Xavier & Amber-Tiana

What Happens if I Don’t Separate From a Toxic Environment?

If you haven’t managed to make it clear to your parents that you’re done with them before they die, you’ll never get a chance. Instead, you’ll spend the rest of your life tormented with guilt, anger, abuse, and pain, without any way to move past it. Ewa says, “Death is never a solution. If a person doesn’t separate from their parents before they die, their demise won’t change anything. They’ll keep visiting their graves–if not physically, then symbolically.”

Teleportation and the Future of Technology

You’ve seen it on Star Trek. You’ve witnessed it on Doctor Who. Most of the sci-fi films of the last 60 years have used it as a plot device: Teleportation!

For a long time, teleportation of humans has been thought to be impossible, yet science fiction writers continue to use it and believe that one day, it will be possible. Just because we haven’t figured something out yet doesn’t mean we never will.

And as it turns out, teleportation might not be science-fiction anymore! It’s around the corner. Although scientists are still divided on whether or not teleportation of humans is possible, China has recently had a breakthrough that is a giant leap forward in teleportation tech.

Okay, maybe not this kind of teleportation…

For almost a year, Chinese scientists have been doing research using Quantum Entanglement to teleport electrons from their laboratory on the ground in Tibet. However, this week marks an historic breakthrough, as they have managed to teleport an electron from their facility to a low-orbiting satellite 300 miles away.

Theoretical depiction of a teleportation tunnel.

Now, before you get too excited about the possibility of teleporting to work to avoid the traffic, it’s important to note that they didn’t actually send an electron to space: they sent all of the information from an electron on Earth to its partnered, or “entangled,” electron on the satellite. So while this is a huge step forward in our understanding of space & time, it may be another few decades before we’re sending more than a single atom.

That’s not to say it’s impossible. Barely more than 100 years ago, we didn’t have nuclear power, airplanes, the ability to get to space, cell phones, or any of the technologies that have warped our planet. In another 100 years, we may well be teleporting 3D-printed food from a factory off-world directly into our homes.

Quantum Entanglement

So, what do you think? Is this an exciting breakthrough that will lead us into a new age of human evolution? Or is it just a pipe dream? Let us know in the comments below!

The future is unknown but we can help shape it.

A New Perspective

Have you heard of OJ Simpson? Because our friend Nelson thought maybe he was a brand of juice, or maybe he was a person who might have raped someone.

This was obviously unacceptable for us. So we forced him to watch the entirety of FX’s The People Vs. OJ Simpson (we watched it on Netflix) to teach him about the recent history of the criminal justice system and how racism plays such an important role in literally every criminal case in the United States.

The Triple-M Digital Detox

It’s a new month, which means yesterday was the start of a brand new Digital Detox! From the 1st to the 7th every month, Triple-M hosts a week of elective cell phone and social media non-use. People around the world collectively decide, “For the next seven days, I’m not going to check my phone.”

We provide the alternate activities, games, meditations, and tasks to fill your time and replace the endorphins you’d normally get online. At the end of the seven days, everyone comes together (digitally, of course) to share their experiences and the artwork they produced during their time away!

Make sure to follow along on Instagram, @millennialmissionmedia, for more information about upcoming Detoxes, participant artwork & experiences, and how you can participate in the future!

What’s the Tea? | June 18, 2019

What’s the Tea this week with Millennial Mission Media? Sit down, grab a drink, settle in, because we’re about to spill it.


If you’re unaware, Amber-Tiana (Owner & Founder of @millennialmissionmedia) has a video series called “Topless Tiana Topics” where she talks about the realness and any random topic she chooses (usually something that’s happening in the news or in social justice movements) while topless & covering her nipples with her hands. The series quickly became very popular, with thousands of viewers and repeated, constant messages from people feeling inspired and overjoyed that someone was pushing boundaries while still playing by the rules.

This week, Instagram decided to ban the hashtag #ToplessTianaTopics from use. They’ve taken down or removed her IGTV videos where she’s topless. At no point in these videos are her nipples visible, but Instagram chose to take the videos down, citing “nudity or pornography.” Amber was angry, but decided to just be more careful and cover her nipples with tape and then covering the tape with her hands.

Instagram took down that video, too, citing “pornography.”

Amber isn’t giving up. She’s currently looking for a new home for ToplessTianaTopics, so stay tuned for next week’s blog where we announce the new home for the series!


As happens every week on Millennial Mission Media, six new podcast episodes were released! All Triple-M podcasts are available on GooglePlay, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, & iTunes.

On A New Perspective, DETOX month continues as Amber & Justin bring on a guest [Sam Belecha] to talk about detoxing from anything unhealthy in your life, even if that includes your own parents. All three people on the podcast this week have experience with toxic or abusive home environments, and they talk about how cutting off communication with their parents made them feel happier, more alive, and finally free to be themselves.

On Under the Influence(r), host Evan Sloan brings on Justin Xavier to talk about screenwriting, acting, and the transition to becoming a social media influencer. They also talk about unwanted online attention, their inspirations, and… dinosaurs?

Anonymous Apologies is back with a new episode featuring two new apologies, this time about Catfishing people online and pushing people away. Justin & Luna read two anonymously submitted apologies and respond with their thoughts and feelings.

On In the Now with TechtonicPOP, Jer & Monica talk about R&B music and try to figure out why it isn’t as popular as it once was. R&B rarely makes the top 10 songs, but in the 90s it was R&B all the way! They also list their favorite songs and artists who created music in the R&B space.

On Paradise Privilege, Amber-Tiana makes a top 10 list of Hawaiian things that she isn’t allowed to do, even though she was born and raised in Hawaii. She ends it on a positive note, listing the Hawaiian things that she loves and is allowed to do.

Lastly, we have SuggeStory, where Justin Xavier walks through his writing process turning the submitted sentence “My eight enemies flee; my eight allies grow!” into a complete story. On Saturday, June 29th, the sentence will be “I don’t think I can eat any more of these today.” Write your own story and send it to SuggeStoryPodcast@gmail.com and it might be read on the show!
