Derek Tran and I chat about the rising anti-Asian hate crimes and what we can do to keep ourselves safe and sane during this time.

 

In this episode we talk about:

  • COVID and where we are at with vaccinations
  • Issues with performative social media activists

  • The intersection of mindfulness and activism
  • Struggling to find our voice as Asian-Americans
  • Standing up within our romantic relationships to microaggressions 
  • Why addressing cultural issues in Asia, by denigrating Asian-Americans don’t work
