Don’t Be Strangers ✨☺️ is a podcast and social experiment for learning to create meaningful connections together via collaborative conversations! Statistics show that (1) social isolation is on the rise and (2) the number of close friends someone would say that they have is decreasing. Considering that having a strong social network is one of the key factor in general happiness, overall health, and prolonged longevity, my hope is that this podcast will serve to bring awareness to the issue as well as provide a platform to start solving the problem, together!

    Welcome back to Don’t Be Strangers, a podcast and community against adult loneliness. Our mission is to create deeper conversations by providing resources, events, and community for the curious student of life. I’m your host XinYi, and I typically meet my co-hosts for the very first time while recording! If this sounds fun to you, please consider applying to co-host a future episode.



    I hope this conversation inspires you as we dive into…


    my experience being back in Meixco City which is starting to become my 2nd home
    Trang’s big move to LA, upping her life and leaving Dallas (the how, and why)
    it’s never too late to start a new hobby (which is photography for Trang)
    how do we form our identities
    our chaotic taste in music and shared love of R&B

    With that, please meet Trang….

Raw & Honest

What I always appreciate about listening to Xinyi is her ability to remain candid and honest. Tune in to a podcast that genuinely reflects life, unsugarcoated.
