A quick note from us: We recorded this episode before March 17th, when eight people, six of them women of Asian descent, were murdered in an act of anti-Asian, misogynist, white supremacist violence in Atlanta. Join us in standing against white supremacy in all its forms and taking action in solidarity with AAPI communities.
Here are orgs to follow and support, and things to read for more information:

It’s been a year of staying in, staying masked, staying on Zoom, and also kinda staying sad/angry/anxious. Even though Spring is almost here and vaccines are rolling out, we thought it might be a good time to talk about what the last year has been like. We basically go month by month and chat about what we were thinking and feeling throughout the pandemic. Then we talk about the habits we picked up this year that we hope to bring into our post-pandemic lives, and share our extremely cautious optimism about the year ahead.
