Topics that need to be discussed

Dr. Wong not only touches on important topics like metal health but she does it with a diverse cross section of guests. In particular it’s good to hear those from ethnic communities where these difficult subjects are not openly discussed.

A Much-Needed Voice!

Dr. Wong is a powerful voice not only in the mental health field, but for so many of us Asian Americans. It’s important for me to see other Asian women leading the way, and her presence in this space makes a difference. I especially loved her interview with May Lee — one of my favorite episodes!

Love the concept and interesting

I love Jessica Woo - I’m following her on TikToks. Seeing her in a POC focused podcast was awesome. I really enjoyed Jessica Woo's episode because I am a fan of her TikToks, but I was so interested to hear about her personal life. Hearing about her divorce experience was so saddening, and shocking she got everything taken from her. It hit home, growing up with a single mother, with a father who also did not want to do a divorce amicably. I was also interested to hear about how she approaches hard conversations with her children, I completely agree that having the door open for these difficult conversations with children, in any conversation is important. Will be looking into more episodes Dr Wong! :))
