About Us

A podcast for the modern day Asian American woman hosted by Melody Cheng, Helen Wu, and Janet Wang. We started this podcast as an outlet for topics we are interested in, and for sharing stories we have as 20-30 something yr. old Asian American women working, dating, and living in Los Angeles. It's no secret that Asian women are lacking in almost all media outlets. As three women working in finance, tech, and production who balance careers, life aspirations, and eventful social lives (we have our fair share of 5am returns from the club), we hope our perspectives can help, inform, and entertain those girls (and guys) with similar backgrounds or an interest in our backgrounds. We like to think of this as our invitation for you to join our once private girl talk sessions! So grab a glass of wine and let's get this show started ;)

2020 - The Year of ABG

E2020 marks the start of something new (High School Musical anyone? Lol). A new year, a new decade. In the previous episode, we reflected back on 2019 and shared our lows & highs. Those experiences lead us to spend some time thinking about what we want to focus on in 2020. What’s next for ABG? What’s in store for Mel’s last year in her 20’s? Do we see a wedding for Helen? Is 2020 the year a man locks down Janet? Listen in as we chat through our goals for the year and what we have in store for ABG!

2020 - The Year of ABG

Episode 54: 2019 - A Year in Review

EThis episode is dedicated to our collective review of 2019 for ABG (learn how we're growing our business, every step of the way!), followed by our personal reflections of 2019. Last year around this time, we reflected on 2018 and discussed our goals for 2019 (check out Episode 34!). Now that we’ve reached the end of 2019 (and survived it) we go back to the resolutions we set at the beginning of 2019 to see how we’ve tracked against those goals. We discuss our continued focus on mental health and self-awareness, our revelations about what defines success for us, habits we wish to break -- but also, answer questions like, did Mel find love? How did dry Janet do? Did Helen achieve her pull-up?! End of year reflections can be both daunting and energizing -- listen is in as we celebrate the great moments and reluctantly recall the not-so-great. Leave us a comment with your highs and lows of 2019! And if you've listened to the end of our episode, leave us a.. mirror-like emoji ;) whatever that may be..

Episode 53: Chinese Medicine and Women's Health with Dr. Helena Zhang

In this week's episode, we explore the topic of Chinese medicine, specifically as it relates to women's health. Alternative medicine has become a rather popular topic in recent times, and a large aspect of these alternative approaches like acupuncture, cupping, and herbs, come from the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine. We sit down with local Santa Monica Oriental Medicine practitioner, Dr. Helena Zhang, to discuss how she got involved with this practice, the differences between Western and Chinese medicine approaches, and how Chinese medicine can be applied for women's health. You can check out Dr. Helena Zhang's new online course "4 Seasons Jade Woman Method" that will launch onMarch 23, 2020 at her website here:http://www.goldenseedgoldentree.com/.

Episode 52: From Accountant to Superhero with Simu Liu

EYou may know him as Jung Kim from the Netflix show, Kim’s Convenience or as our next Asian Superhero in Marvel’s Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. But we know him as Simu Liu, our ABB from the North (aka Toronto) and a former Yappie! Yes, Simu was like one of us. Working that 9-5 corporate job at a Big 4 firm as an accountant. We’re so excited to have him on our podcast. Listen in as we chat with Simu about his journey from the office to the big screen!

Episode 51: First Comes Love, then Comes Marriage (Helen + Philip's Engagement Part 2)

ELove takes patience, compassion, and courage. Fairytales paint a story of “love at first sight” that leads to a rainbow and butterfly filled path to wedding bells and a white picket fence home. But real, intimate relationships challenge us as individuals and unearth each partner’s deepest personal vulnerabilities, fears, and weaknesses. Marriage - who we choose as our life partner and when we are ready to make that commitment - is an incredibly important, some say the MOST important, decision of our lives. Listen in as Helen and Philip share a very personal recount of their relationship thus far - the challenges they have faced and how they have grown individually and together - on their journey to their engagement.

Episode 50: Let's Talk About Sex, Baby

EWe touched (pun intended) on sex a bit in Season 1 on Episode 5: 20 Something Girls vs. 30 Something Women (Part II Sex & Dating), but this time we go deep (pun was not intended, but now it is). Sex is a loaded topic, and for many of Asian cultural background, a rather taboo topic that we rarely discuss with parents/family or friends. From school provided sex-ed courses to internet chats to porn, our introductions to and understandings of sex were pretty fragmented and incomplete when we were younger. Listen in as we share our personal experiences with sex - how we were educated, our first times, and all the complicated partner relationships we've experienced along the way (i.e. from boyfriends to friends with benefits, to one night stands). If you enjoyed this episode, leave a in the comments! Or let us know if you’re a Helen, Mel, or Janet in your sex style preference .

Episode 49: The One Where Helen Gets Engaged

EAlright y'all! We know you've been waiting for this one for a while now!! The one where our ABG, Helen, gets engaged!! We bring on a very special guest, her fiancé. You first heard his voice on the podcast when we recorded the Yappie episode (Ep 30). If you’ve been following our social media, you already know who he is -- Mr. Philip Wang!! Tune in, as we recap the months leading up to the event, all the planning that took place to execute the surprise in Helen's hometown, and the juicy details (and hiccups) on the day that it all went down. Next week, we'll be releasing a part 2 of this engagement series! <3

Episode 48: How to Own Your Insecurities

EInsecurities. From the outside, it can seem like the three of us are fairly put together. But I can assure you that we are.. not. Talking about our failures & our insecurities on this podcast is sometimes hard for us, but we know that when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, we can connect and find comfort in knowing that we’re not alone in our insecurities. Listen in as we share our personal insecurities and how we deal with them. We hope this episode allows you to open up dialogue with yourself and your friends to tackle these moments together.

Episode 47: Back to School with ABG!

We're BACK with season 5, and literally TO SCHOOL at Helen's alma mater, Boston College, for a speaking event at the moment this episode is being released! Listen in as we re-cap our “summer break” since season 4 - from ballin’ it up for charity, to live event collaborations with other super boss Asian female podcasters, to new merch items, we have been busy busy busy! In the spirit of going BACK (whether it's to school or the podcasting airwaves), we spend this episode reminiscing about and discussing our college experiences. Did we attend our dream schools? What did we major in and why? How were the college parties and extracurricular activities? What was dating like for each of us? And internships/career prep? Press that “play” button to find out!

Episode 46: Assumptions, ABG edition!

EABGs and ABBs -- we have reached the end of Season 4!! Y'all have stuck with us for FOUR whole seasons now. It’s safe to say that you probably have some assumptions about us! "Does recording ABG only take one take?!?" "Do we ever fight?!" "Is there one person in ABG that is super controlling?" "Do we always wear makeup when we step out the door?" "Do we only hang out with Asians?" ..and many, many more. We want to thank you all SO much for listening in + engaging with us throughout these past 46 episodes. We'll be taking a short break from recording to really focus on growing our lil baby pod and brainstorming ways to bring more kick ass content to YOU! Trust us when we say -- we are just getting started, and we want to take you along for the ride. We're so incredibly thankful for this small but powerful ABG+ABB community, and we hope to continue being a voice for the AA community, one that you can be proud of.
