All The Things is for moms who want to reclaim their whole self and live their truest life. We all deserve to live and express ourselves authentically. In order to do that, we‘ve got to know ourselves. This podcast is the examination of just that - all the things that make us who we are. Because the better we understand ourselves, the more good we can do in this world.

All The Things will feature interviews, conversations and reflections on topics such as self-identity, motherhood, trauma, healing, community, creativity, art, race, writing, personality tests and so on.

I‘m Lisa Chin, host and creator of this podcast, mom, writer and coach and many other things. I believe the world would be a better place if we could each live an inspired life. I can‘t wait to share this journey with you.

    Flipping the script w/ Audrey Ensor

    Flipping the script w/ Audrey Ensor

    2021 is coming to a close and so is Season 1 of All The Things. This podcast wouldn't have happened without today's guest, Audrey Ensor. Audrey edited the episodes and yes, she made it that happen but it was purely the idea that she would be there to edit the show that helped me finally start producing! 


    Today the script is flipped and Audrey interviews me to learn more about the behind the scenes of creating the podcast, why I want to speak to moms specifically and why I haven't been surprised by the truths the guests share in the episodes.


    I'd love to hear from you - what have you liked most about Season 1?

    Second generational guilt

    Second generational guilt

    Today's solo episode is a continuation of a thread in my conversation with Cindy Kao.


    "Second generational guilt" is a term I created to describe a very specific kind of guilt that I experience as a daughter of an immigrant. My feelings are not indicative of how every second generation American feels but it is an example of another layer to the emotions and experiences that children of immigrants feel. If you are one yourself, you have your own flavor of it.


    In this episode, I read a blog I wrote five years ago titled "Second Generational Guilt" and then I go into the evolution of my feelings and the value and magic in writing and capturing our emotions.

    Purpose beyond motherhood and work and w/ Cindy Kao

    Purpose beyond motherhood and work and w/ Cindy Kao

    Today's guest is my long-time friend, Cindy Kao. Over the years, our roads have wound and crossed and ran alongside one another through various states and stages of life. Now we have the unique experience of raising our children in the same town having known each other since we were children ourselves. 


    In this episode, we chat about raising kids as second generation Americans, our respect for our mothers, the traditional Chinese postpartum practice of confinement and the evolution of personal growth and spirituality. Who knew that recording a podcast episode was just what two working moms with young children needed to catch up?

    Our future depends on it

    Our future depends on it

    Today's solo episode was inspired by my previous episode with Tiffany York.


    Relationships and people are important. For a long time, I didn't think so but in fact, it is the fabric that holds this world together. It holds our individual worlds together and one rip in it can be like a hole in a sail.


    In this episode, I share a blog about and thoughts on one thing that I believe we all need to embody a bit more in order to save the fabric of our society.

    Rupture and repair w/ Tiffany York

    Rupture and repair w/ Tiffany York

    Long standing friendships are treasures and often have many layers. My friendship with Tiffany has ebbed and flowed over the years giving us what we needed to land us in the here and now. She and I speak about rupture and repair in our relationship and how the very actions that have allowed our relationship to survive can be extended to the social justice work and the self work that we do. We also touch on her recent election for a role in town government, how Black theology has shifted her beliefs, and the power of reframing. 


    It is undeniable that Tiffany is spirited, thoughtful and principled all the while also being human.
