    "Chink, stop eating bats" - Asian Horror Stories & Season 1 Finale

    "Chink, stop eating bats" - Asian Horror Stories & Season 1 Finale

    Today’s episode features listener horror stories to tie Season 1 into a neat little bow. From casual racism to Covid-19 verbal abuse, these stories should be told for greater awareness of the issues that the Asian community face. 

    Announcement: Juna has left the podcast and won’t be returning for Season 2. Juna has been fundamental to this project and we thank her for her time and hard work. 
    What does the future look like? Shaz would like to come back for Season 2 with a refreshed interview structure where she talks to notable Asian guests on each episode (Jackie Chan anyone?)

    We both want to thank you all for supporting us throughout this season. Bye for now, but not forever.

    The Lowdown on the ABG - Asian Baby Girl

    The Lowdown on the ABG - Asian Baby Girl

    Boba, falsies, tatts & raves. Yep we all know someone … 
    Today we’re digging a little deeper than the general ABG stereotype and looking at the etymology of this cultural phenomenon. Because aside from all the dyed hair and fake eyelashes, there’s a pretty interesting meaning behind the Asian Baby Girl trope. 
    We’d LOVE to hear from you about your experiences with ABGs! Maybe you are one, maybe you know one. Slide into our dms on Insta @crazybiatchasians or continue the convo via email crazybiatchasians@gmail.com.
