As an Asian American male, I still found so much relatable material
Really amazing podcast! Although I am not an Asian American Woman, I still found myself relating to many of the topics covered in this podcast. As someone who has had Asian American friends struggle with mental health issues, Episode 2 really hit me hard from the beginning. Soon, I found myself listening to each episode in order of release, finding discussion topics that related to my own personal life. Growing up in a predominantly white community, I just kind of took my experiences as my own isolated instances, but I was surprised to hear that others have experienced similar struggles with identity and "fitting in" or "standing out" while attempting to maintain cultural pride. I ended up listening to every episode, and although there were some that didn't connect with me as much, each episode was really well edited and produced. The stories from the interviewees, especially episodes 19 and 20, were heavy hitting and really informative. I also found episodes 7 and 22 very powerful, and have shared them with friends who I think would also find value in them. Really well done, excited to see what's next for Project Voice!
I want to like it more
I’m struggling with how to rate/write this review. I listened to one episode and found the guest very interesting but was very distracted by the host’s voice. She sounded so sleepy and lethargic that it took away from the content. I may come back another time and give it one more shot as I’d like to like the podcasts. 🤷🏻♀️
