#31 - Goody Two Boobs w/ Priska

Episode Summary

On this episode, Minji invites her marvelous & eloquent friend, singer-songwriter Priska, to chat about a persona that they both know a few things about, the "goody two shoes." Minji and Priska break down the pressures of growing up with overwhelming and oftentimes problematic expectations to always be a "good girl." Together they start to peel back the layers of pressure that their respective backgrounds (Asian American, religious, multi-sibling family, millennial) put on them and the deeply rooted pros and cons of that journey. In a conversation that just starts to address the tip of the iceberg in a much wider conversation about complex gender norms and expectations, they also share how they have been able to break through and live much more honest, fulfilling, and balanced lives as strong women.
