When we were young, we were told not to give out any personal information on the Internet. But now, we pay strangers to drive us around, play games with strangers, and even go on dates with strangers!
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 comf...
When we think about Healthcare, we often think of doctors and surgeons running around (a la House or Grey’s). What’s often overlooked is the hard work put in by nurses, who play a vital role in protecting patients’ lives.
Today we bring on two active RNs (registered nurses) working in the Emergency Department and the Medical Surgery Unit. As if being a nurse isn’t crazy enough, these two have experienced everything from PPE shortag...
Before some of us are even 18 years old, we pick a major at college that determines our course load for the next 4 years. The classes we take and our halfway-complete degree lands us some internships that we accept to “gain experience” (aka slap some big names on our resume). Our internship experience kick-starts our professional adult career, often in the same path that we’ve been on since we were a teenager.
For many of us, our 18...

CW: We discuss heavy topics such as sexual harassment, sexual assault, and r*pe culture in this episode.
If you live in California, or are a big fan of video games, you may have seen the resurgence of the Me Too movement where many brave women are coming forward to share their story of sexual assault. Many of these women were assaulted by famous video game content creators, but many were made victims by their own friends and peers.
If you’ve ever stumbled upon Cat & Cat comics on Instagram, you’ve probably spent half an afternoon reading the stories of cute cats with BIG personalities. But don’t let the furry little things fool you - behind the round, wholesome art style belies life lessons and emotional healing that you didn’t even know you needed!
Today we are super excited to feature the mastermind behind the beloved Cat & Cat comics - illustrator S...
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 w...
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 recei...
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. ...
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.
