The FEELS

Really authentic, thought-provoking pod with a sprinkle of comedy.

CarolynBahar ,

A good podcast

Really great and funny! It is very thought provoking

Miki_K11 ,

Really insightful and honest

I've been surpised by how much I've related to Brian and Youngmi! As a 2nd gen Asian American who has struggled to feel affinity with both Asians and Asian Americans, it's really incredible to recognize common threads that look not just at the experience of being Asian, but also at the mental spaces that we go through. Also, as someone who has recently begun working on their own emotional health, listening to them talk openly about their journeys has helped me navigate and I'd recommend to anyone going through the same.
