About This List

As an Asian American man, there aren't many opportunities or communities for me to prioritize my mental and emotional health, let alone podcasters willing to publicly talk about it. So here's my favorite podcasts, big and small, on mental health from the Asian American perspective. *Message me to add yours or one of your favorites!
  1. An emotionally-stunted dude's exploration of what it means to be emotionally intelligent. Raised between Asian and American culture, and in the tech world, where mental and emotional health was not prioritized enough, this nerd aims to demystify what it means to not only be a man, but a human. As society progresses faster than humans were meant to keep up with, how do we adapt to an ever-changing world while strengthening our brittle emotions for resiliency? Follow Human Up on Instagram:

On Man Up, host Aymann Ismail invites men and women to tell embarrassing, funny, and sometimes disturbing stories about their lives as they try to figure out what they still have to learn—and unlearn—about being a man.

  6. A podcast for the modern day Asian American woman hosted by Melody Cheng, Helen Wu, & Janet Wang.

  12. I wanted to create a space where ordinary men can speak their minds and hearts without judgment. Men aren't allowed to express how they feel or think and thus create a generation of men who are unavailable. We need to break this cycle to be better men to ourselves and those around us; we, they deserve it. I'm not here to thrust my beliefs onto you, I'm here to have an open conversation about the direction men are taking now, and what can we do about it. If you want to be a part of this movement, come join me and start some conversations.
