Chief Executive Auntie Podcast

Chief Executive Auntie is a podcast exploring the work lives of Asian Americans beyond the conventional doctor, lawyer, and engineer. You’ll hear from Asian Americans doing unique creative or entrepreneurial work, from full time professionals who’ve done their thing for years, to freelancers and side-giggers who are just getting started. You’ll also get lots of opinions and unsolicited advice from me, your resident Auntiepreneur. New episodes drop every Monday and run about thirty minutes each, perfect for your lunch break, workout, or dropoff run.
