Get hyped for freedom day, we're so keen to get out and do something other than walks to the park and back. Matt betrays Nathan, Nathan and I think we have an alcohol problem, I become vulnerable. Also Nathan's microphone was plugged weirdly or something, it's a bit crackly at times - the issue with remote recordings.

Matt stumbles upon a quiz people have been taking to learn more about a person. We answer some of the questions to get to know one another and see whether we might just be a perfect match. We tried to segue into the ad spot but ended up just recording it after we finished recording the main topics. 😂

Recorded on 15/7/21. I finally got around to editing this so you might realise that some of the stuff that we are talking about is a bit outdated. Yes, I understand the irony of when I say I like having somewhat better-quality recordings when there is a slight hissing sound this episode ☹. This is an off-topic one where we just cover what’s been happening since lockdown initially started, what we’ve been doing and just overall rand...

With international travel still not close in sight, I figured it might be a good time to whip out more overseas tales. My uni friend, Gautam, spent 6 months in Amsterdam “studying” and travelling around Europe. Hear his tales of adventure and woe as we reminisce the once blissful days of international travel.

18+ This episode gets a bit raunchy...

A lighthearted episode where we discuss common Asian stereotypes, how we feel about them and explore its origins. We also understand that everyone feels differently about certain stereotypes - we are not speaking as a whole, just ourselves personally. 

Alex was kind of a side character in this episode who chimed in every so often.

Guests: Alex Rodriguez, Matthew Ky, Nathan Phu

It's been nearly a year and a half since I first started this podcast and I felt like it was finally time for the old trailer I made in 5 minutes to be revamped. This is the new and improved trailer featuring various highlights throughout random episodes and some fancy new music. Thanks for being a part of this journey and for all your support, enjoy! xo

We have heard the stories from our regular guest, Nathan, the self-imposed “white-washed Asian”. Now it’s time to get the perspective of the other side of the coin, a “yellow-washed white guy” (He doesn’t think he is, we just kind of exaggerate it onto him). Alex comes on to talk about his experiences growing up in a multi-cultural community, experiencing many different cultural aspects and customs. We also discover his experience ...

Picture this: You're 12 years old, it is 6PM on a Tuesday night and you ask your dad for a sip of his beer. It is disgusting and you think to yourself, "I would never drink alcohol, this is terrible." Fast forward to now where alcohol is always prevalent, while it may not be yourself but with some, if not most of your friends. Drinking is a huge influence in our culture, and we will be exploring the different nuances in...

Another extra curricular sport to add to your list. A new guest appears, one of my old friends joins me as I explore more about his favourite sport that he has been playing for years now. He claims it's much better than Oz Tag, but maybe listen to Episode 17 before you choose which one you want to try.

From computer games as a child, to the tech industry as an adult - An all too common tale for people in the IT field. I uncover the rabbit hole of roles out there and also the tech jobs that we have experienced. For legal reasons, everything that we cover is of our own opinion and does not reflect the companies that we either have worked at or work at.

The final saga to filling up your pockets with cash. We cover more bargains, find out whether private health insurance is worth it and what kind of products we would not cheap out on. Please note that we are not endorsed by any of these companies, they are purely from our personal experience. I wish I was big enough to be a paid shill. :(

We cover the overview of the bamboo ceiling, stereotypes and the disadvantages we may face in our careers. After further research, we found that increasing awareness was a better way of closing the gap. We may get things wrong in this subject but we're learning more as we go.
