    Episode 5: You Are Valid
    Asians. We see you. We recognize you. All of you. You are valid. East Asians are not the only Asians that should be represented, despite what white media wants to tell you. Asians come in all forms and we are here to amplify you, your existence and your experiences. Whether you’re Southeast Asian, South Asian, Central Asian, mixed Asian, adopted Asian, Polynesian, Pacific Islander or anything in between, we want you to feel seen. You are magic and we want to give you voice and platform to share your magic with everyone else. Featuring finale guest Soleil Groh.

    MINI-SEASON 2: SHIT PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT
    Episode 4: 170 Years of Asian-Americans
    If we don’t pay attention to history, we are certainly doomed to repeat it. This episode is heavy and uncomfortable. You’ll be faced with shit you didn’t think you’d talk about or learn about. Time to change that. Confront the truth in this episode. We are getting into the impact of institutional racism, societal racism and much more. There’s so much that we learned putting this episode together and we hope you take the time to learn, too. Enough is enough and we can’t keep doing this again to minorities and underserved groups. Let’s stop the cycle by breaking it ourselves.

    MINI-SEASON 2: SHIT PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUTEpisode 2: Vices - Partying, Drugs & MoneyContinuing down the road of vices. Let’s talk about partying, drugs, money, and gluttony. It’s pervasive in Asian communities, but we never really take time to examine the significance behind these hidden yet widely recognized cultural aspects. We are not here to demonize drug use. We use drugs. But we want you to know there are resources out there for safe consumption. We want you to have someone you can turn to for support. The less alone you are, the safer the experience is whether you’re at a rave, at a party, out at the club or just at home. The more you know beforehand, the happier you’ll be the next day.

    MINI-SEASON 2: SHIT PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUTEpisode 2: Vices - Sex & RelationshipsSex is awesome. There, we said it. Now, can we get to the good stuff? We’re spreading sex positivity and, as always, encouraging more education (in this case safe, explorative sex education) for Asian women to help them understand their bodies a little bit better. You have the power within you. Own it. Get out there and find the resources and the communities to help you explore your identity and your validity. You are unique and your body is yours and only yours. Embrace your magic and let your inner sex goddess shine.Follow us on Instagram @almostchillcastFor press inquiries and coverage, please contact the team via almostchillcast@gmail.com.

    S2 - E1 - Bringing Honor To Your Family

    MINI-SEASON 2: SHIT PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT
    Episode 1: Bringing Honor To Your Family
    Growing up, our parents never encouraged the discussion of mental health. They likely didn’t understand mental health for themselves either. It wasn’t until we were adults that we learned from friends and society what anxiety was and what depression could look like. No more. We are here to talk about mental health now and what the impact of the ancient traditions of shame and honor in Asian cultures can be on Asian children and adolescents growing up. The earlier we address it, the easier it will hopefully be for kids trying to understand why they’re feeling the way they’re feeling. There’s lots to unpack here, so let’s get into it.
