    Reviewing Essential Feminist Book Titles with Amanda Chong

    Reviewing Essential Feminist Book Titles with Amanda Chong

    It’s been a while since our last episode, but that’s because WE’VE BEEN READING! That’s right, if you’ve come across bookstagram, booktube and now booktok, you’d know that reading is IN now. On this episode, we chat with Amanda Chong, lawyer, poet, and co-founder of ReadAble, to discuss some essential feminist reads - except they aren’t the usual picks you’d expect. From deliberating our existence to the link between feminism and contemporary Singapore, the selection of books discussed will inspire greater inspection of the self, and how we relate to others. Here’s to big brains!

    Social Media Burnout is Real, We Know You Feel It

    WE KNOW YOU... endlessly scrolling TikTok before bed every night! Social media is a form of entertainment, escapism, and relaxation for many of us, but we all know consuming too much of it is bad. Depression, anxiety, self-absorption, not to mention feeling overwhelmed from the sheer amount of content, are effects that many of us are learning to grapple with. 
    LADY BOSSES, and Mother of Twos Charmaine Seah-Ong and Aarika Lee, tell us how they manage burnout as content creators, what it’s like bringing their children up in this pandemic digital age, and how we can take care of ourselves. TIP: PUT YOUR PHONE DOWN!

    Is it a Toxic Relationship, or Have You Been Groomed Online?

    Is it a Toxic Relationship, or Have You Been Groomed Online?

    It usually starts off with a simple "Hello, you're cute", but can quickly escalate to a sexually explicit message. In a generation of tech-savvy individuals, it's hard to imagine that any of us will fall victim to online grooming, and yet two out of three secondary school students in Singapore received unwanted sexual content online, according to Microsoft's Digital Civility Survey conducted in 2019. Between looking out for big age gaps, grand gestures of love, how do we know if it's a case of being groomed?

    How to Love and Respect Your Body

The 26-year-old entrepreneur who’s living in Bali today shares with us her journey from struggling with how she looks, to starting her business.

Honest, real talk that all girls and I hope guys too should listen to!

I wish I had such podcasts to listen to when I was a teenage girl back in the 00’s navigating through the seemingly thick forest that puberty unleashed upon me. ☺️

Am so gonna recommend this to colleagues and older friends who are now wondering how to help their daughters cross the threshold as they reach their tween years!
