    Episode 105: Let's Talk About BOOBS

    Episode 105: Let's Talk About BOOBS

    Today we are going to be talking about...Boobs. Breasts, t**s, hoohahs, boobies - whatever you want to call them, they are a noteworthy part of the human body, and hold particular anatomical and symbolic meaning.

    Different people will conjure up different associations and ideals when it comes to the topic of boobs. Today, we want to discuss it from the perspective of 3 cis-gendered Asian American women. We’re going to talk about our personal experiences: what our boobs mean to us, recalling our relationship with them through those awkward teenage years, reflecting on social perceptions (for example the idea that Asian women have particularly small boobs), bra and personality associations, and more.

    If you enjoyed this episode, tell us about your first training bra in the comments!

    Episode 104: #StopAsianHate with Tammy Cho & Michelle Hanabusa, Co-founders of Hate is A Virus

    Episode 104: #StopAsianHate with Tammy Cho & Michelle Hanabusa, Co-founders of Hate is A Virus

    In the last month, the U.S. has seen a massive spike in anti-Asian hate crimes. According to The Cut, there were 20 incidents in the first half of 2020 alone, compared to 1 in the entire year of 2019. These activities have prompted intense sadness, frustration, anger, and fear amidst the Asian and Asian American community.

    Today, we have Tammy Cho & Michelle Hanabusa, co-founders of Hate Is A Virus, a community of mobilizers and amplifiers that exists to dismantle racism and hate. Tammy & Michelle started Hate Is A Virus in April 2020 in response to the rise in hate crimes against Asian American Pacific Islanders due to the pandemic.

    Join in today as we process the recent events, learn more about the initiatives at Hate Is A Virus, and discuss ways to take action to #StopAsianHate.

    To learn more about Hate Is A Virus, check out @hateisavirus_ and https://hateisavirus.org/.

    Episode 103: Get to Know Jenny Han! Author of the "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" Series

    Episode 103: Get to Know Jenny Han! Author of the "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" Series

    On today's episode, we pick the brain of the mastermind behind the "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" trilogy, Jenny Han! She is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and also the executive producer on all three of the Netflix films - "To All the Boys I've Loved Before", "To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You", and the final film, "To All the Boys: Always and Forever" (out now!) 

    When her first film came out on Netflix, we all watched the movie and relished in the sweet nostalgia of young love, re-living the butterflies from first crushes, feeling the blush in our cheeks from awkward “firsts”, and wiping away hot tears that stain a naive heart. Lara Jean & Peter Kavinsky have clearly captured the hearts of America, and today, we think Jenny Han will capture yours. If you've watched the final film, let us know what you think!

    Episode 102: Bling Empire's Kevin Talks Dating, His Asian American Identity, and What it's Like to be on a Reality TV Show

    Episode 102: Bling Empire's Kevin Talks Dating, His Asian American Identity, and What it's Like to be on a Reality TV Show

    Join us as we chat with our friend and Bling Empire star, Kevin Kreider. As residents of LA working on projects promoting Asian American representation, we met Kevin years ago through our friends at Wongfu Productions, whose shorts Kevin has acted in. And Kevin actually hosted a gala where ABG received our first cultural impact award from APEX in 2019.

    In this episode, we talk about both the Kevin in Bling Empire and the Kevin BEFORE Bling Empire - the Kevin who worked as a model and fitness coach while running his own production company called Taejin Entertainment LLC. The Kevin who has been an advocate of redefining Asian masculinity for many years and has been a motivational speaker at places like TedX and Google about reclaiming Asian male sexuality in America.

    Episode 101: Wedding Updates: The “TBD” Road to “I Do"

    Episode 101: Wedding Updates: The “TBD” Road to “I Do"

    To many brides and grooms, the past year may have felt more like a Wedding “miss” than Wedding “bliss", with all the unexpected changes due to the pandemic. From changing expectations of the big day, bridal gowns that remain hanging in closets, to wedding invites with TBD dates…a lot of adjustments had to be made for many couples. Our bride, Helen, also had to work through these changes, and she shares all the wedding updates in this episode. Did she find her dream wedding dress? When are Helen & Phil getting married? How can the bridal party be supportive during these times? And what are the wedding trends to anticipate for 2021?

    Episode 100: OUR 100th EPISODE!!

    Episode 100: OUR 100th EPISODE!!

    We made it!! Triple digits!!! 100 is the beginning of a new chapter that we are opening as we enter the uncharted, the unknown, and the incredibly promising year of 2021. From that late-night casual conversation over drinks 4 years ago that lead to mic purchases, googling “how to make a podcast”, and claiming the @asianbossgirl handle across multiple platforms -- to a multi-media LLC powering the #3 podcast in the Personal Journals category in Canada and the #7 in the U.S. on Apple Podcasts and the #17 podcast in the Business category in the U.S. on Spotify -- 100 episodes later -- some things have definitely changed, but many things have remained the same.

    In this episode, we cover questions such as -- What were we most afraid of and excited for when we started the podcast? What has been the most challenging part of building this podcast? What is the most valuable lesson we have learned? What's ahead for ABG? Join us as we reflect on our journey to 100!

    And thank you all SOOO much for being part of our journey. We honestly could not have gotten here without y'all. We hope to continue growing & learning with you, & building up this community to become something even more special and interconnected. Thank you, and here's to the next 100.
