    As Kulap Vilaysack (Listen Again)

    Kulap Vilaysack has recently been busy recording a Lemonada Media podcast of her own, alongside veteran journalist SuChin Pak. Their Webby award-winning show, Add to Cart, is all about the things they buy and buy into and what it says about who they are. In celebration of their recent award and Apple Spotlight feature, we wanted to re-air Sinéad's conversation with Kulap about the nuances of Asian American identity, her own Origin Story, and what it means to be a “good dude” in Hollywood today. You can listen to Add to Cart wherever you get your podcasts.

Personal, Funny, Caring

Sinéad! Multiple times during this podcast I have thought to myself, “Sinéad might be one of the best interviewers of her generation.” Your questions cut to the core when it comes to topics like identity, success, self-love, and authenticity. Your voice pours out love and concern for those around you, as well as those beyond your scope. Thank you for this podcast!
