Episodes

almostchill - Episode 5 - Asian Women Mean Biz

10/5/2018
More
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...

9/13/2018
More
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.

almostchill - Episode 1 - Growing Up Asian

8/28/2018
More
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.
