Imposter Syndrome

6/24/2020
As a young, fresh new grad straight out of college, starting your first adult job can feel like a strange experience. When the unfamiliarity and self-doubt persists, it can manifest in Impostor Syndrome, which is the thought that you are undeserving or incompetent, and thus a “fraud” or “impostor”. Whether these feelings come from something you can’t control, something that comes with time, or something that should be changed, we walk through our personal experiences with Impostor Syndrome...

#BLM: Becoming Better Allies

6/17/2020
The Asian-American community has often been criticized for staying quiet. Not only is this visible in our low political engagement or silence in the face of flagrant social problems, our complicity (inadvertent or not) is also quite strikingly symbolized in Officer Tou Thao’s complicity in the murder of George Floyd. While this movement has motivated a lot of Asian-Americans to take action, the various methods of support have received some criticism, including call-outs of performative...

#BLM: Asians Calling Out Asians (including ourselves)

6/3/2020
On May 25, 2020, George Floyd was murdered by a white cop as an Asian-American officer and two others stood by without intervening. This is not an isolated incident - this is just one example of how the American justice system has failed the black community time and time again. To us, the Asian-American officer who stood by watching, is also a symbol. Anti-blackness has been rampant in the Asian-American community for a long time. We want to help change that. Through one uncomfortable...

Does the Asian American Sex Talk Exist

5/27/2020
Asian parents don’t seem to give their kids the “sex talk” like typical parents in American movies. In fact, the entire topic of sex (and even dating) can be taboo, with the exception of very vague advice or discouragement. So where does that leave us? Today we discuss the Asian-American version of a “sex talk” and explore how our parents’ relationship impacts our understanding of love. Follow Eat Your Crust @eatyourcrustpod

Don't You Know That You're Toxic?

2/19/2020
Toxicity is a monster that manifests in many forms (and, unfortunately, isn't as hot or catchy as Britney Spears circa 2003). Whether it manifests in incompatible friendships, unhealthy cultural values, or pure self-sabotage, toxicity is always both a pain point and an opportunity for growth. In this episode, we get up close and vulnerable to explore the idea of toxicity in our friendships and ourselves. This week's guest, Natalie, actually opens up about her tumultuous 14 year friendship...
