About the Podcast

Badass Asian Dudes
A brotherhood of badass Asian dudes seeking their own definition of accomplishment, cultural identity, and masculinity through personal development, mental health, life coaching, emotional intelligence, and psychedelic plant medicine
This is a place for Badass Asian Dudes to become the best version of themselves both on the outside and inside. This is more than achieving big goals just to check off another list. It’s about seeking inner peace, fulfillment, and emotional stability in everything we do, so we can each live longer in our own versions of what a badass life looks like. It's for the Badass Asian Dudes who seek deeper exploration in their emotional intelligence, their masculinity and femininity, and their cultural identity.

On this podcast, we challenge our guests to get real. We talk to Asian male-identifying entrepreneurs, investors, thought leaders, therapists/coaches, entertainers, experts, researchers, etc. about how they managed their internal experience and external obstacles to get to where they are today. So you can have everything you need to truly live a badass life from within.
