Season 4 FINALE: Video Gaming & Mental Health with Jenna Buffum

Season 4 FINALE: Video Gaming & Mental Health with Jenna Buffum

November 13, 2022

How many of us have grown up playing video games? How many of us have had parents buy us video games? And then in the same vein, scoot us over to busy ourselves with video games while they tsimis, unwind, or do other things? Like a babysitter, third parent, or friend, video games have been in Filipino households from the 80s and beyond. Today we reminisce about our relationship to video games and how as adults these are becoming avenues for mental health even while it is arguably today corrupting the “youth”?

A great conversation with our good friend Jenna Buffum!

Changing Seasons

October 30, 2022

After 2 years of surviving a global pandemic (i.e.intense quarantining, fearing for our lives, and mask mandates), have our values and ways of decision-making shifted in how we relate or want from the world? As most of us have returned to our day jobs in-person, did we return exactly the same? Maybe? Let’s fuck around and find out. With 2022 cooling down the hot-ass desert, let’s talk about possible transitions on the horizon, contemplation, or themifestation.

Money Wounds Part 1

Money Wounds Part 1

October 2, 2022

Have you ever been in a conversation among other Filipinos about income, only to be followed up with a question about your profession? Are you guilty of, or have you been given unsolicited financial advice? Have you observed your parents/elders give away money they don’t have? “Debt,” “Pagpapautang/Lend,” “Remittance,” and “Income” are all key terms in our culture about money. In today's conversation, we uncover some wounds when it comes to understanding, navigating, and obtaining money.

 

Join us for Part 1 of this very long, poignant conversation.

Today’s episode is inspired by  years of “tough love” we've consciously and subconsciously engaged in as family members in our Filipino/a/x culture. We answer questions about how love is modeled for us, our learned and unlearned behavior, and the folks who helped us love again.
