If you’re a 20 something Asian woman trying to establish yourself as a writer in Tech, listen up.
You can speak up, share your thoughts and yet, nobody hears you.
You’re ignored.

That’s Eda Yu’s story.

In “Don’t Talk Over Me” Eda talks with Lauren Dai, another Asian woman working in Silicon Valley about tough challenges in a room full of white men. Who helped her? How did she get over barriers?

Also, how did she first discover her passion for writing?

Who persuaded her to pursue it through college?

And what is holding Lauren back from writing? What are her fears?

If you have spent a good chunk of your life studying and working like a robot, how would you know to wake up one day, and say “I am not a robot!” That’s Kou Aizhe’s story.

A former librarian and TV journalist, he was inspired by "This American Life" podcast to create his own show “Gushi FM.” The idea is to give voice to real people with real-life experiences and struggles. It’s now one of the most popular podcasts in China since it was launched in 2017, reaching 600,000 listeners and counting.

“Leaving a robotic life to create my own show” is about his thinking at various turning points and crossroads.

This interview will be in Mandarin Chinese.

Part 3 of a Special Summer Series from Shanghai: In Context with Anita Xu: “How can this be...the rest of my life!?”

If you’d invested almost your entire adult life training to be a professional landscape designer, you’d landed at your dream job. But a few years later, you looked around your workplace and you discovered something that would forever change your idea of what is a good life or what is a good career.

What would you do?

That’s what happened to Lu Xiaoya (卢小雅) 3 years ago, when she was 27 years old.

In this Episode 3 “How can this be... the rest of my life !?” Anita talks with Lu about that life-changing moment, and what she did next.

Lu will tell her story in Mandarin Chinese.
