All The Things

All The Things

All The Things is for moms who want to reclaim their whole self and live their truest life. We all deserve to live and express ourselves authentically. In order to do that, we‘ve got to know ourselves. This podcast is the examination of just that - all the things that make us who we are. Because the better we understand ourselves, the more good we can do in this world. All The Things will feature interviews, conversations and reflections on topics such as self-identity, motherhood, trauma, healing, community, creativity, art, race, writing, personality tests and so on. I‘m Lisa Chin, host and creator of this podcast, mom, writer and coach and many other things. I believe the world would be a better place if we could each live an inspired life. I can‘t wait to share this journey with you. To learn more about me, visit my blog Lisa For Real at www.lisaforreal.com or find me on Instagram @reclaimingmotherhood.

When tragedy occurs, we need one another, to process and to heal in order to make the changes necessary to never let it happen again. Thank you communing with me as I share my feelings and thoughts after the school shooting in Ulvade, Texas.

JoAnna Bennett, the first guest of this season, returns to interview me in this finale episode to close out the season.

We speak of how empathy plays a role in unlearning. As mothers of young children, we pontificate how we will raise teenagers. I share another take on how the village supports a mother as well as how I see motherhood pendulating from generation to generation. 

We wrap up the episode on my favorite learnings from ea...

I met Jessie four years ago as an attendee at the first of her annual event called Flourishing, held by her non-profit, Mass PPD Fund. While we didn't get a chance to really speak then, the event left an impression on me. Luckily, we connected afterwards and have stayed in touch.   In this conversation, we deviate from our theme of Unlearning so Jessie could share a bit about the fund and her event happening this Friday, May 6...

Something that really re-affirms the beauty of the Universe is when I can meet someone briefly and have a deep conversation with them. Today's guest, Jhaynane, speaks of some of my favorite things - inner child work, healing and re-parenting ourselves while also parenting our kids. 

In this episode, we touch on the pendulation of mothering through generations going from one extreme to another. Jhaynane also shares ways to recon...

We can meet truly remarkable people in the random-est of places. 

Today's guest, Raphael Pastor was my make-up artist for my cousin's wedding. Our 20 minute appointment led to this conversation.

Raphael speaks about his work as a campaign organizer and shares some insight on how to create real change across the aisle. I ask for his thoughts on how social media can be used in social justice work. He also speaks of the import...

Motherhood is the impetus for a lot of changes in our lives. One common one is to create a healthier home for those little beings entering it. 

Today's guest, Dr. Hannah Gardener, became more interested in environmental health during her first pregnancy. Since, she has become a healthy home consultant who I have turned to for advisement on purchasing decisions. She runs an amazing Facebook group where she shares her levelheaded...

Everyone has a story to tell and few have the bravery to share it. 

I reconnected with Nicole, a classmate from elementary school, on Facebook and I learned so much in our short conversation that I had to invite her onto All The Things.

This episode departs from the structure of my other episodes. Nicole shares her story mostly uninterrupted as she weaves each piece into one another. Her principles of choosing kindness and caring f...

Today's episode is a solo throwback of a Facebook Live I shared in July 2020. 

I was going through my own unlearning of who I am as a Chinese American on many different levels - as a marginalized person, as a perpetuator of oppression and as an advocate/accomplice/ally. 

It is really fascinating to listen to myself from almost two years ago and to listen to myself now. To see how the practice of the many things I am doing have ...

Today's guest, Dr. Joanie Terrizzi shares how we are a grief avoidant culture which is precisely why I knew I wanted to talk about death during this season of unlearning. As much as our culture avoids grief, there is no way to prevent the end of life, and it deserves as much air time as all the other parts of life.

You will find that this conversation contains a spaciousness to it. The silence in a conversation talking about l...

I met today's guest, James Culver, through a training program he was providing to corporate employees. As a professional guide to others' unlearning, I knew that James would have a lot to say.

Consider this episode as a masterclass to unlearning. James shares models and frameworks as well as personal experiences to show how we can interrupt and reset a chain of behavior. After all, we cannot keep doing the same things and ...

One of the first things that Anna shares in this episode is our dual relationship of student and teacher with each other. It perfectly encapsulates our conversation which touches on ego, genius and being able to hold two extremes/opposites (being a teacher and being a student) and find the middle path.

In this episode, Anna shares:

  • what holds adults back from learning
  • how to manage polarization internally and in society
  • what genius...

    One of my biggest unlearnings has been understanding what trauma is. Being able to see my experiences through that lens has been invaluable in better navigating the world.

    Today's guest, Mira Rao, is an embodiment and resilience coach. In this episode, we dive into how she defines trauma, embodiment and resilience - words that are often taken in without an understanding of what they truly are. 

    We touch on the mechanistic cul...

    The term "decolonize" is very much a word of the time. When I learned about Meredith Keith-Chirch's coaching practice, Decolonizing Your Health, I knew that we'd have a great conversation about unlearning in regards to health. In this episode, we also touch on schooling, technology, and language.

    I appreciate how Meredith lives and breaths her work. She is doing her own unlearning as she guides her clients through ...

    I knew today's guest, JoAnna Bennett, from high school, and our conversation touches on JoAnna's unlearning of what love, safety and worth mean to her.

    We repeat patterns that are set in childhood and many times generations before ours. JoAnna shares her experiences growing up in a dysfunctional household and carrying on that pattern in her dysfunctional marriage. She speaks about how motherhood and her kids gave her reaso...

    Welcome to Season 2! I'm excited to be back with more amazing guests. This season, we will be focusing on the topic of unlearning. Unlearning is something that is the key to my being a better adult and all the roles I hold - mother, daughter, sister, partner, friend and contributor to society. 

    Your version of unlearning will not look like mine. I hope to share with you some ideas of what unlearning means, why it is important ...

    In this episode, we are wrapping up Season 1 and diving into all the truths. Thank you for listening and sharing your time with me.

    2021 is coming to a close and so is Season 1 of All The Things. This podcast wouldn't have happened without today's guest, Audrey Ensor. Audrey edited the episodes and yes, she made it that happen but it was purely the idea that she would be there to edit the show that helped me finally start producing! 

    Today the script is flipped and Audrey interviews me to learn more about the behind the scenes of creating the podcast, ...

    Today's solo episode is a continuation of a thread in my conversation with Cindy Kao.

    "Second generational guilt" is a term I created to describe a very specific kind of guilt that I experience as a daughter of an immigrant. My feelings are not indicative of how every second generation American feels but it is an example of another layer to the emotions and experiences that children of immigrants feel. If you are one y...

    Today's guest is my long-time friend, Cindy Kao. Over the years, our roads have wound and crossed and ran alongside one another through various states and stages of life. Now we have the unique experience of raising our children in the same town having known each other since we were children ourselves. 

    In this episode, we chat about raising kids as second generation Americans, our respect for our mothers, the traditional Chin...

    Today's solo episode was inspired by my previous episode with Tiffany York.

    Relationships and people are important. For a long time, I didn't think so but in fact, it is the fabric that holds this world together. It holds our individual worlds together and one rip in it can be like a hole in a sail.

    In this episode, I share a blog about and thoughts on one thing that I believe we all need to embody a bit more in order to ...
