We're almostchill here.

Drop what you’re doing and listen to this!
Way to provide so much insight with laced with the perfect amount of comedy relief! Although I’m not Asian myself, it’s great to listen to stories from first generation adults, who like myself, were raised in the middle of two cultures. Definitely looking forward to future topics. So if you’re looking for other folks to relate to and a good laugh, look no more!
This is what I've been missing!
Honestly, I haven't ever heard a podcast quite like this before, one that pulls apart all the different, messy aspects of growing up Asian in America, and what that looks like as both a young kid growing up and now, as Kieryn and Gigi say, as two grown women. I love the chemistry they have together on the mic, and how they can oscillate between anger and amusement and low-key shade in the span of a minute. Definitely subscribing!
