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.

    Bridgerton and Other Things We Didn’t Know We Needed But We Really Needed

    Join Suchin and Kulap as they talk about the female gaze. Think Bridgerton man buns (no no, not their hair), differing cleaning habits from their lovely and occasionally annoying husbands, and the small (yet life changing) purchases for their toilets and singing habits alike.

    2020: What to Keep, What to Leave

    2020: What to Keep, What to Leave

    We’ve been forced to take on a lot of new customs and habits in 2020 –– zoom calls, outdoor hangouts, masks, aggressive hand-washing, widespread uncertainty. In today’s episode, Kulap and SuChin decide what they want to keep from 2020 and what they want to leave behind. And it gets pretty deep. (Did our producers cry? Yes.) On a personal note, SuChin is ready to start sending herself different messages about herself, and Kulap is preparing to face a difficult decision about family planning.

    Self Care Energy

    It’s quite possible that every single person in 2020 needs some self care. But, what exactly does that mean? Kulap and SuChin dive deep into the different ways they take care of themselves –– it’s more than just Kulap’s crystals or SuChin’s cleaning. It’s about self-soothing and all the ways we do it.

Impeccable

My new favorite pastime is chillin’ with my new Asian Aunties. Joy, humor, real-talk, genuinely helpful info on products (and life in general). Listening to these two ladies is so grounding and fun. Absolutely love this flawless podcast!
