MINI-SEASON 2: SHIT PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT

Episode 4: 170 Years of Asian-Americans

If we don’t pay attention to history, we are certainly doomed to repeat it. This episode is heavy and uncomfortable. You’ll be faced with shit you didn’t think you’d talk about or learn about. Time to change that. Confront the truth in this episode. We are getting into the impact of institutional racism, societal racism and much more. There’s so much that we learned putting this episode together and we hope you take the time to learn, too. Enough is enough and we can’t keep doing this again to minorities and underserved groups. Let’s stop the cycle by breaking it ourselves.

MINI-SEASON 2: SHIT PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT

Episode 2: Vices - Partying, Drugs & Money

Continuing down the road of vices. Let’s talk about partying, drugs, money, and gluttony. It’s pervasive in Asian communities, but we never really take time to examine the significance behind these hidden yet widely recognized cultural aspects. We are not here to demonize drug use. We use drugs. But we want you to know there are resources out there for safe consumption. We want you to have someone you can turn to for support. The less alone you are, the safer the experience is whether you’re at a rave, at a party, out at the club or just at home. The more you know beforehand, the happier you’ll be the next day.

Episode 2: Vices - Sex & Relationships

Sex is awesome. There, we said it. Now, can we get to the good stuff? We’re spreading sex positivity and, as always, encouraging more education (in this case safe, explorative sex education) for Asian women to help them understand their bodies a little bit better. You have the power within you. Own it. Get out there and find the resources and the communities to help you explore your identity and your validity. You are unique and your body is yours and only yours. Embrace your magic and let your inner sex goddess shine.

MINI-SEASON 2: SHIT PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT

Episode 1: Bringing Honor To Your Family

Growing up, our parents never encouraged the discussion of mental health. They likely didn’t understand mental health for themselves either. It wasn’t until we were adults that we learned from friends and society what anxiety was and what depression could look like. No more. We are here to talk about mental health now and what the impact of the ancient traditions of shame and honor in Asian cultures can be on Asian children and adolescents growing up. The earlier we address it, the easier it will hopefully be for kids trying to understand why they’re feeling the way they’re feeling. There’s lots to unpack here, so let’s get into it.

MINI SEASON 1: WE ARE ASIAN WOMEN

Episode 5 - Asian Women Mean Biz

It's a time of growth and evolution for women in business, but it's also the time to address diversity and representation in business. Living in America as a woman of color comes with challenges, but working in America as a woman and especially as a woman of color comes with a whole different slew of struggles. We celebrate the women of color that have paved the way for WoC in business. We know they dealt with micro-aggressions, rampant sexism and definitely outright racism. We still deal with it today. Changing the narrative and the expectations of WoC in the business world is an important step towards real representation and more WoC properly in leadership positions. Featuring special guest Joyce Chen, Co-Founder of The Seventh Wave, the art and literary nonprofit focused on conversations, both on and offline, about the most pressing social issues of our times.

Episode 3 - White People, It’s Not About You

White people, it's time we addressed our frustrations with you. This episode is for you to listen and REALLY listen, not to defend. Take something away from what we're telling you instead of jumping to justify why you're "not all white people." Understand that it's time for you to be uncomfortable and confront the harsh realities of the damage white people have done on minorities. We hope you're open to learning.

Don't steal our culture. Don't take it for your aesthetic pleasure just to throw it away and look down on us. We're not here for that and we won't let you get away with it. Want to learn the difference between cultural appropriation and cultural appreciation? This is the episode for you. May you take something away from our rantings and ravings.

Episode 1 - Growing Up Asian

It's not easy being yellow. Especially not growing up in America. Getting called "banana," dealing with microaggressions day in and day out, navigating your own culture at home while trying to fit in with your non-Asian friends at school. Whether you grew up on the East coast, the West coast or even middle America, Asian kids face racism, prejudice, and bullying on a daily basis. It's high time we call it out and address our peers.
