Why Asian Women Should Run the World - With Anna Chen
The Missing Pieces Podcast returns! Jaime interviews his former student, Anna Chen. Anna is currently a pre-med student at Johns Hopkins. Jaime wonders why so many of his top all-around students are female Asians, so he poses that question to Anna, a female Asian. He also asks Anna about a thought he had while watching CRAZY RICH ASIANS - that pursuing your passion may be a selfish American thing to do that runs contrary to (the more Asian?)"family first" philosophy.

The Missing Pieces Podcast
Mr. Richards was and will forever be one of my idols and inspirations. The man understands what REAL education is and what IS missing from school curriculum. What he teaches actually helps those who are about to enter the adult world. The best part is he's not afraid to evolve WITH the students. He understands times are different, and I believe he adapts extremely well. Thiis podcast is a voice that needs to be heard, and deserves to be heard. He's qualified, he's experienced, and uses every usueful resource around him to connect to the PEOPLE. I will do this podcast again and again till my vocal chords are removed. Listen and learn, Mr. Richards is one in a million...scratch that....one in a TRILLION. Love you, Chards.
