Making Time for Joy and Gratitude

11/25/2020
When life feels like it’s running a million miles per hour, taking care of the big things feels much more urgent than the little things. But often times, it’s the little things that bring the most joy! Inspired by Ingrid Joy Fetell Lee’s Joyful Planner, which encourages us to actively plan for joy rather than expect it to spontaneously stumble into our lives, we express our gratitude about the little things we’ve been doing in the past few months that have brought us joy.

What Asian TV Taught Us About Gender Expression

11/11/2020
Gender expression is often taught to us through things like TV shows, school uniform rules, or conversation with our parents. But when you grow up in between two different cultures, it can mean you’re exposed to double the stereotypes and expectations! Today we take a blast to the past to observe the various gender roles we’ve picked up through our favorite Asian dramas and celebrities, and explore how these portrayals translate to female empowerment and LGBTQ acceptance in society and our...

An Honest Conversation on Salaries

8/12/2020
Disclaimer: This episode focuses on Bay Area cost of living and average salaries. We recognize that location is a huge factor in the variance of salaries/pay rates. Parents often tell their kids not to talk about money because it’s rude, without explaining why they think it’s rude. But growing up, it’s not difficult to realize why having conversations about money are so awkward. In a capitalistic society where money = merit and money = power, we start to evaluate our own self-worth and...

In today’s episode we dive beyond the “stranger danger” mentality to discuss the often stigmatized concept of online friends. While the beginning of the friendship may feel unconventional, sometimes online friends can be the most comfortable solace you never knew you needed. Fun fact (and...
