The episodes feature Jada Pinkett Smith, along with her mother and daughter for refreshingly honest conversations from an intergenerational perspective. You should definitely check it out! My favorite episode so far has been the one that featured a conversation between Jada and Gabrielle Union about this weird tension that existed between them for years.

I shared 3 questions to help you figure this out for yourself and also answered a couple of On the Porch questions about dealing with a new psychiatric diagnosis and how to handle conflict with friends.¬†
