In light of all the amazing news coming out about Asian American representation in the media, I want to bring your attention to this hidden gem - ABG - AsianBossGirl. Most people might think that ABG stands for "Asian Baby Girl," but this podcast is redefining it for the better.
Three incredibly talented Asian American women, Melody Cheng, Janet Wang, and Helen Wu, have refined ABG into something that empowers women and addresses topics that any woman, regardless of ethnicity, can relate to.
In Asian American culture, some things are considered taboo, and there are so many things that we are unable to learn about through our parents. Many times, we have to resort to the Internet, which is a huge hotbed for inaccurate information.
They address important topics, such as mental health, age disparities in multiple domains of life, and imposter syndrome. They also talk about some very interesting topics, such as the modern fuckboi, skincare, and poop.
What a well-rounded podcast.
I'm only on the first season of the podcast, but I already love it and am so excited to listen to all FOUR seasons. I've never come across a podcast like this before, and I'm so thankful for all the brave Asian Americans who have paved the way for this type of podcast to become culturally accepted.
Each episode ranges from 20 minutes to an hour. Check it out when you can!
