Join the hosts of Add to Cart, comedian-writer-director Kulap Vilaysack and veteran journalist SuChin Pak, in a subversive take on consumerism. Each week, they have honest, revealing (sometimes TMI) conversations about all the big and little things they’re adding to, or removing from, their carts. They decide what's worth the monetary/emotional investment, and what's not. From beauty products and health trends, to celebrities and philosophies they’re passionate about, our hosts dig into anything we buy into and what it says about who we are.

Then, Ku and Su are joined by the host of “I Said No Gifts,” Bridger Winegar. He doesn’t get mad when Ku and Su give him a gift. They discuss his add to carts and who really is the last real hermit (SuChin).

    Let's Go Cartin' with Phoebe Robinson

    Just when we thought Ku and Su were the queens of adding to cart, in walks writer, producer, actor, and comedian Phoebe Robinson. She introduces a whole new term, “cartin,” teaches Ku and Su that you can actually max out a shopping cart online, and then brings it back to earth with her three picks for the show. Plus, Su tries to slow down and Ku tries to find the source of a long-lasting headache.

Alone In My Cart and Head No More

This show is hilarious, I laugh out loud at least three times per episode. The ladies are perfectly relatable and ridiculous at the same time. However, this show also has true heart, they lift others up and share pain in such an authentic way you truly feel along with them. One of the best things to come out of the pandemic!

Fight for life. ,

Happy Anniversary Ladies

I started listening because I grew up watching Su on my tv and loving her. I stayed because both ladies are amazing and I love the cart recommendations. More importantly, this is a great space for Asians to feel safe (I’m all for inclusion and safe spaces for everyone) but as a proud black American woman I feel so included. This is literally how the world would be if women ruled! Keep up the amazing work ladies, happy first anniversary 💜

Love it!

I love this show so much!! Look forward to it every week
