    The Hiatus is Over: Catching Up on Life, Love, and Mental Health

    The Hiatus is Over: Catching Up on Life, Love, and Mental Health

    Hey all! It's truly been forever since we last sat down and recorded an episode, but we're excited to be back with our listeners after a long hiatus! Apologies for disappearing into the void :')

    In this podcast episode, we chat and reflect about the past year. We (Juno) planned a wedding, (Nelly) officiated said wedding, traveled and frolicked around Europe while wfh, explored hobbies (art, pole dancing, aerial hoop, boxing, pilates), and fell in love! Our 2022 was filled with so many ups and downs, adventures, and definitely so much chaos. Although we haven't kept up with recording for the podcast, we reflect on our mental health journey and our anxiety of not feeling good enough to even create content. You won't believe how many times we sat down, planned episodes, recorded for hours, and ended up deleting everything! It's hard breaking the cycle of perfectionism and so we took the time off to focus on taking care of ourselves and slowing down so we don't crash and burn.

    Stay tuned for our upcoming episodes that will be released in a sporadic manner because ADHD time blindness, just kidding! Also, as we read through the backlog of emails and msgs, please do connect with us! :)

    Sorry Not Sorry We're Out of Service: Why We Took Leave to Unf*ck Our Minds

    Sorry Not Sorry We're Out of Service: Why We Took Leave to Unf*ck Our Minds

    Hello 2022! It’s been a hot minute, but we’re back! 2021 has honestly been a challenging year and one full of personal growth. In our digital age, it seems hard to escape the noise of hustle culture and toxic productivity where everyone and their grandmas have a side gig. In this episode, we talk about why we went on leave from work, the podcast, and basically life itself. (Essentially, Nelly had a stick up her ass and Juno was emotionally constipated).

    During the process of traveling and self-discovery, we reconciled our relationship with work, confronted shame, restarted/continued therapy, and learned the borders of our healthy boundaries. Sometimes we need to stop and slow down and smell the damn flowers… Here’s to a year of prioritizing yourself first!

    How to Save Lives with a Pen, Paper, and Hope with Diana Chao, Founder and Executive Director of Letters to Strangers

    How to Save Lives with a Pen, Paper, and Hope with Diana Chao, Founder and Executive Director of Letters to Strangers

    Dear Stranger, I finally love myself. Love, Me… Who would have thought that writing a letter to an unknown someone somewhere in the world could bring you comfort and warmth. From living in poverty as an immigrant in a new country to struggling with mental illness and bouts of blindness, Diana cultivated her hope and recovery through writing letters to strangers around the world. 

    Diana Chao is the founder and executive director of Letters to Strangers, a global youth-run organization that seeks to destigmatize mental illness and increase access to affordable, quality treatment. Outside of mental health advocacy, Diana published a novel at age 13, receiving recognition from the U.S. Navy for her research on dengue fever at 16, worked for NASA and became the only girl in California to receive the 2016 Presidential Scholar Award at 17, became a special columnist for the American Astronomical Society at 18, was admitted to Princeton to study physics at 19, and even found time to create her own Vogue-featured photography studio along the way.

    Empowering Women with ADHD Through the Power of Storytelling with Katy Weber, Host of the Women & ADHD Podcast

    Empowering Women with ADHD Through the Power of Storytelling with Katy Weber, Host of the Women & ADHD Podcast

    What happens when three podcast hosts and ADHDers record an episode together? Too many relatable stories! In this episode, we're excited to welcome Katy Weber, founder and host of the Women and ADHD podcast. With 20 years of experience as a journalist, editor, and designer for newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, The Daily News, Metro International, and Hudson Valley Parent, Katy understands the power of sharing other people's stories and recognizing ourselves in others. When her world was turned upside down after an ADHD diagnosis last year, she quickly realized that listening to other women talk about their stories and revelations was the catalyst for understanding herself and working with her ADHD. Now, she hosts a podcast interviewing badass women who were diagnosed in adulthood and finally felt like, for the first time, they understood who they are and how to lean into their unique strengths. Listen in as we chat with Katy about her experience growing up with undiagnosed ADHD, self-medicating in newspaper and journalism culture, embracing our fun quirks and creative strengths in relationships and work, and lastly - our related struggles and experiences podcasting with ADHD (and fangirling about each other's podcasts)!

    Kondo-ing Emotional Baggage: Transforming Childhood Trauma, Grief, and a Cancer Diagnosis into Mindful Peace with Sabrina Wang, Founder and Coach at Mori Light

    Kondo-ing Emotional Baggage: Transforming Childhood Trauma, Grief, and a Cancer Diagnosis into Mindful Peace with Sabrina Wang, Founder and Coach at Mori Light

    Alcohol, junk food, and mindless consumption of media have been the go-to for escaping the s****y parts of reality - and we’re guilty of this too. It’s so hard not to run away or pretend our emotional baggage doesn’t exist. In this episode, we chat about how the hell we actually reach inner peace as Sabrina shares her own mental health journey (and we actually cried in this one). From a lonely childhood in China dismissed from her mental health struggles to overcome her cancer diagnosis, Sabrina found meditation and therapy as her light at the end of the tunnel. And now, she has become the light for others.

    Sabrina Wang is the founder and coach of mori light, her coaching business. She helps high-achievers crush the fear of not being enough and take action to create fulfilling lives. She is a daily meditator, student of energy work, and Reiki practitioner. She's also a product manager at Headspace.

    Fainting Spells, Burnout, and Managing All of Life’s Stressors

    Fainting Spells, Burnout, and Managing All of Life’s Stressors

    In a constant go, go, go buzzing world of productivity and hustle culture, we often feel the constant need to be on top of everything - to have our shit together. No one gets to see the behind-the-scenes version of your life when you really don’t have it all there. So, let’s talk about it. From recent crises, burnout, and short-circuiting, we’re (still) struggling with managing our ADHD and mental health. And, that’s okay too.

Here for it! 🙌🏻

Honest, open, and funny, these two keep it real with their experiences and I love listening to it! I feel like I found my people and I’m so happy and grateful. Keep it going ladies!! ☕️☕️

aliciakenworthy ,

Really love this one!

A joy to listen to. Candid conversations and honest confessions (just listened to the interview with Dr. Feldmeier and can totally relate to sharing inappropriate jokes in corporate environments…!)

Much Needed Podcast

Love it! Growing up in an Asian household, I also faced challenges of not being able to talk my feelings out, let alone mental health. This podcast is about conversations I never got to have with my family, but desperately needed to hear
