Would highly recommend!!

I just finished listening to the season finale of Alyssa and Stacey first round of podcasts and I can’t wait for their second season already. I finally got caught up on their episode 10 about communication and I have to say, this is my favorite episode EVER! 💕💞💕💞

This episode was the perfect blend of talking about heavy hearted and serious issues we face with this topic, all the way to making me laugh about silly fights I get into with my man that could easily and totally be avoided😅. I legit listened to this episode twice because there was so much value and good information I could learn from and apply in my daily life right away!

These ladies do such a wonderful job at picking topics that are relatable, thought provoking, and ultimately starts conversations that are needed in today’s society. I highly recommend this podcast! ✨💫✨

Meh. I’m too weird for this.

I found the content unrelatable. The discussion feels like they’re talking through an Instagram filter. When I’m with my best friend, we definitely don’t talk as proper as this—A+ for effort, but I’m a nasty woman 😜.

Maybe it was my expectations? I was hoping to hear unique stories from a female, Asian American perspective that are “often missing from [your] traditional media outlets,” (as stated in their ‘About’ section). After listening to all their episodes, I confirmed that I truly am the weirdo and outcast my mom told me I was. It’s definitely not their intent, but while listening I almost felt like they were reinforcing stereotypes that made me isolated as a young tomboy in my mid-teens.

I try to support my creative Asian American homies as petty revenge to their Asian tiger parents that wanted them to become doctors/engineers. The advice and stories presented here are a little too sheltered and based on societal expectations (& gender roles) for them to be applicable to my life. If anyone has ever politely called you “interesting” or “different” when they really mean “freak,” I think you can learn more from an episode of PEN15, Broad City, or Tuca and Bertie than this podcast.

“Health and fitness” is so personal it’s hard to review. I acknowledge the courageousness it takes to start a podcast and to put yourself out there for the internet to see. On the flip side, it takes a certain type of ego to think that your ideas and life are worth recording and releasing as advice to others in a podcast. I figured, maybe there’s another listener out there wondering why everyone but them likes this podcast—so if that’s you, ‘sup.

Too long didn’t read? 2 stars for being Asian American women putting this out there, but not more because it isn’t relatable if you or someone else has ever considered you ‘alternative.’

Simply the best

Alyssa & Stacey are an amazing duo! They have great chemistry and I love listening to their podcast weekly. They’re raw and open with their audience on relatable topics which makes me feel connected to them and not alone in my own issues. I appreciate them for bringing a lot of topics to light. My favorite podcasts are their talk on fear, one with their guest speaker Calvin, and their most recent one on heartbreak. These are my fav bc their podcast helped me shift my perspective on my own fears, I loved how they spoke about childhood traumas on their podcast with Calvin which I can relate to, and of course heartbreak bc who hasn’t been through one! Thank you Alyssa and Stacey. Keep it up!
