    How are our survival instincts?

    How are our survival instincts?

    HI XOJammers! In this episode, we did something different in which we talked about a hypothetical scenario to test our survival skills and what would be the most ideal things to prioritise to bring with us. We got on this topic as we were struck by the conversation of how prepared we would be in the face of survival, such as being to know where north is, or how to build a basic shelter. Come join us and listen to our individual and collective thoughts and our plan of action!
    Let us know if you like more of these hypothetic case scenarios! These are super fun to do and want to be as interactive as you at home listening to this podcast too.
    As always, see you in the next episode!

    Regional Australia Asian Experiences

    Regional Australia Asian Experiences

    As Andy has moved out from Sydney to a small regional town recently, in this episode we go through the difference between regional/rural vs metro life specifically for Asians. Mei-Wing has also done a few stints in the regional area for her previous job where Jason has not been exposed to regional life at all. Thus, with three different levels of experience, we dwell on each person's individual experiences are and expectations. Hope this provides some insights into what you might expect if you travel regionally in Australia as an Asian.

    Without further ado, let's dip right into it!

    If you have any personal experiences in your country specifically in a rural setting, please let us know about your experiences by DMing us on our IG page @Xojampodcast.

    Happy Chinese New Year 2022!

    Happy Chinese New Year 2022!

    XO Jam Podcast crew is wishing you all a happy Chinese/Lunar New Year for 2022! This episode starts with a BANG for the beginning of our Season 2 podcasts.

    In this episode, we explore the things that we do during CNY, such as giving red pockets, fireworks, family dinners, and the food that we eat on special occasion. It's interesting that even though we all celebrate Chinese New Year, we all do it differently - Andy only realised that you have to bless the counterpart in order to receive your red pockets lol! He's been getting his money too easily. 

    Anyways, let's dip right into it!

    Christmas 2021

    Christmas 2021

    It is 5 days late to our Christmas podcast (so sorry about the delay, we actually did record this prior to Christmas but it took me so long to upload it). In this podcast, we deep dive into what Christmas looks like to us, specifically Asian Australians. Here we talk about how we would celebrate Christmas such as giving specific presents to whether we would set up Christmas trees. We also talk about having a Summer Christmas where it deviates from the norm of a "White" Christmas in movies and what we long for as our ideal Christmas. 

    I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2022!

    This episode will conclude our first ever season since starting this podcast early this year. We have come a long way from organising the recording room (Andy repainting the whole room white and re-arranging the furnitures) to Jason purchasing our podcast setup (mics/headphones/interfaces where the three of us agreed on the prices). We have thoroughly enjoyed producing these episodes and will continue to do so in 2022. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to listen to us rambling on random Asian Australian things and I can't believe we have done a total of 16 episodes for this season! Thank you again. 

    As always, if you have any questions please DM us on our IG account @XOJamPodcast or on our spotify account.

    Self Growth and Action featuring Caroline

    Self Growth and Action featuring Caroline

    Lo and behold… we have our first official guest on our XO Jam Podcast! It feels so official to finally have our first guest to be featured on our Podcast and who would fit the role? Our good friend Caroline from high school! We are so thrilled to have such an ‘impromptu and spontaneous' podcast with Caro (cough, Andy, cough), where we talk about a more serious topic of self-growth and action. It’s also been a while since we all caught up and this is basically us capturing our authentic conversation of meeting each other for the first time in 5 years! Here, in this episode we talk about the changes in our lives thus far, and more importantly, the importance of having a self-growth mindset. I really think you’ll get something out of this episode with Caro’s… shall I say it, words of wisdom?  

    What you’re waiting for?! Let’s dip right into it!

    Have comments, please leave them on our Instagram page, @XOJAMPodcast

    Shang Chi Review

    Shang Chi Review

    Our take on the new recent Asian blockbuster Marvel Movie! Here we dive into the new Shang Chi movie, where we talk about what we loved and what we hated in the movie. We all had different opinions so it's a good discussion to have, whether it's from the cultural appropriation to the plot and GFX! Nevertheless, it is so refreshing to see an Asian superhero in the Movies, we have lacked Asian representation in the movie industry for so long. 



    Let's dip right into it!
