In this solo episode, we’re unpacking our own perspectives and experiences around relationships, marriage and starting our own families.
We discuss the expectations of Asian traditions we should be upholding, conflicts around being in mixed-race relationships, Asian masculinity and the differences between Eastern and Western beauty standards.
You’ll also enjoy our deep dive into discussions around starting our own families, with Kan’s baby on the way, Davie thinking about starting one and Noel & Viv against having kids.
