    Sunny's Interview on Causepods - with Host, Mathew Passy

    Sunny's Interview on Causepods - with Host, Mathew Passy

    Thank you Causepods and Mathew Passy for hosting Sunny on their show!

    "As Sunny Chang and his siblings navigated the complexities of grief and healing, they realized that their experiences were not unique and that there were many people out there who had similar stories to share. They decided to use their platform to amplify these voices and create a safe space for listeners to explore their own traumas and healing journeys.

    One of the things that set the Three Siblings Podcast apart is its approach to storytelling. Rather than focusing solely on the events themselves, they delve deeper into the emotions and thought processes that accompany them. This allows them to create a more nuanced and empathetic picture of what it means to deal with trauma and loss.

    Through their conversations, they also explore the larger social and cultural forces at play in the way we deal with grief and trauma. They confront the stereotypes and stigmas that often surround these issues and challenge listeners to rethink their own assumptions.

    Ultimately, Three Siblings is a testament to the power of vulnerability and the importance of storytelling in the healing process. It offers a space for listeners to connect with others who have gone through similar experiences and to feel less alone in their struggles.

    If you’re looking for a podcast that will make you think deeply about the complexities of the human experience, Three Siblings is definitely worth checking out."

    Overcoming the Challenges of Observing Ramadan - with Fahad and Zarin Raza

    Trigger warning: this show discusses sensitive mental health topics.

    In this podcast episode, we delve into the topics of the challenges of observing Ramadan and mental health in traditional Asian households with our guests, Fahad and Zarin Raza. As we explore the challenges of observing Ramadan and the impact it can have on mental and physical health, Fahad and Zarin share their personal experiences and insights.

    Growing up in traditional Asian households, Fahad and Zarin discuss how mental health was often a taboo topic and not something that was openly discussed. However, they also share how their relationship with mental health has evolved over time and how they have come to understand its importance.

    As we focus on the significance of Ramadan, Fahad and Zarin talk about the physical and mental toll that fasting can have. Sunny fasted for three days with Fahad in order to better understand the experience and be able to relate more with Fahad and Zarin. Sunny and Fahad share a fun story about them breaking fast. They ordered way too much food and barely ate any of it. We also discuss the challenges and rewards of abstaining from vices, and compare the experience to other challenging tasks, like the workout regimen, 75 Hard.

    Throughout the conversation, we highlight the impact of cultural and generational differences on mental health discussions, particularly within the Asian community. The guests emphasize the value of learning from and celebrating diversity, while also encouraging listeners to find what works for them as individuals.

    Don't miss this insightful and thought-provoking discussion on mental health, cultural differences, and the challenges of Ramadan.

    Fahad's bio: “Fahad Raza is a second generation immigrant whose parents settled in the US from Pakistan. Fahad was born and raised in Houston, Texas before moving to Austin to pursue his education in Economics and Finance at the University of Texas. He currently works for a tech startup focusing on decarbonizing heavy freight transport. Fahad enjoys traveling the world along with experiencing different cultures and culinary arts with his wife Zarin.”

    Zarin's bio: "Zarin Raza is a data integrations manager at a pharmaceutical digital advertising company. Aside from that, she’s an Austin based lifestyle blogger who dedicates promoting local businesses. She was brought up in a first gen Bangladeshi family and is the oldest and first woman in her family to pursue a full undergraduate and masters degree in the U.S. Zarin loves to discuss and understand the differences between different cultures and upbringings with people that she meets which she uses as inspiration in her day to day life with her work and content creation.

    How Losing a Hand Can Impact Mental Health and the Technology Working to Help - w/ Ryan Goodwin

    How Losing a Hand Can Impact Mental Health and the Technology Working to Help - w/ Ryan Goodwin

    Trigger warning: this show discusses sensitive mental health topics.



    Losing a limb can be a devastating experience, but Ryan Goodwin's story is a testament to the transformative power of innovation and resilience. As an ambassador for Psyonic, a company that creates cutting-edge bionic limbs, Ryan joined us today to share his incredible journey and how this revolutionary technology has given him new hope and capabilities.

    Ryan was invited to the South by Southwest Austin hub in March to talk about the newest technologies and innovations. Ryan shared his story of how he lost his limb and how technology is helping him with his mental health and improving the lives of many. Ryan also talked about his plans to help others with the new technology. They discuss the night that they met and Ryan in particular showed them how the arm worked. Ryan also discusses his mental health, specifically his experience in the hospital when he lost his hand. He was unfamiliar with prosthetics and had to do a lot of research in order to figure out how to take care of himself. He implemented physical activities into his own mental health routine, such as going on walks and hikes with his dog while relearning activities he did beforehand like golf. He had to relearn how to do basic tasks such as using the restroom and showering with only one hand. He was able to use this experience to develop relationships and find joy in his life. Ryan lost his hand 18 months ago. He talks about how he had to learn how to do things differently and how this gave him a confidence boost. He found Psyonic, a company focused on neural prosthetics, while he was in the hospital. They sent a representative from their company who was also an amputee to talk to him, which was a huge help. He found out about the Amputee Coalition and other groups of people he could lean on and learn from. The founder of Psyonic was inspired to create advanced prosthetics after seeing a girl in Pakistan walking around using a tree branch as a limb. The Psyonic arm gives the user the ability to use different grips without having to change out the actual prosthetic, which is a huge improvement over other prosthetics. This amazing story is not to be missed!

These 3 siblings - Tina, Michele and Sunny - help bring the topic of mental health out into the spotlight, shattering all stigmas and helping to create a safe space to openly talk about mental health issues. This podcast is equal parts raw, powerful and refreshing. As another ABC, I’m proud of this trio for being a voice for Asians and helping so many likeminded individuals connect and realize we are not alone. A must follow!
