About TITT TALKS

 

TITT Talks was “conceived” in January of 2020 during one of TITT’s many friend/family (“framily”) get-togethers.  In conversation, it came to light that there was a lack of representation of womxn like TITT in, among other forms of media, the podcast world.  In particular, there was no podcast that TITT could subscribe to that would enable them to feel seen, heard, or understood as modern Asian Pacific American working mothers.

The womxn of TITT Talks knew that this void was one they could fill by sharing their voices and experiences through their casual conversations, which were already taking place on a routine basis.

Thank you for the positive feedback we have received since our launch in early June of 2020.  We are delighted to hear that we are bringing you content that you can finally relate to as mothers, professionals, millennials, and Asian Pacific Americans.

To our listeners of this special How SHE Built This series, our mission has always been to connect with other modern womxn through the lens of our own experiences so we thought this series would be a perfect fit.  We have inadvertently jumped on this journey of growing our own business as entrepreneurs and thought these conversations would not only be empowering, inspiring and refreshing for us, but for our listeners as well.

Anti-Asian Hate Roundtable with Raising Compassionate Leaders

TITT Talks addresses rising anti-Asian hate sentiments in this episode. We are joined by two board members of Raising Compassionate Leaders (rcleaders.com): Justine Bautista, PhD student in Social Ecology at the University of California, Irvine and Dr. Kristine Yi, clinical psychologist specializing in cross-cultural work in families. Together, we begin to explore the foundations of Asian hate, its effect on our AAPI community, and resources to overcome these barriers together. This is just one of the many conversations we will have surrounding the greater scope of racism.

 

Here are some of the resources we mention in the episode.

TITT Talks is a proudly #aapi family. We are deeply concerned for the safety of our AAPI sisters and brothers, our own families, and our personal friends. We cannot put into words all that we are feeling, as we go from sadness to anger to confusion to fear. 

Please check-in with your #aapi friends. We are not all okay. Please take care of yourselves and know that you can talk to us. If you need support, a helpful resource is stopasianhate.info. We stand with our Asian American Pacific Islander community in the face of racism, and we are committed to taking action against it.

How SHE Built This: Mayly Tao

Join us for another episode of TITT Talks: How She Built This! This week, we are featuring Mayly Tao (@maylytao), the Owner of DK's Donuts & Bakery and Donut Princess LA.  This spin-off series is meant to intimately discuss the journey of building a business as a female entrepreneur in a 20-ish minute segment. These types of conversations inspire us here at TITT Talks, and we hope they do the same for you as well.

 

TLo sits down to chat with Mayly as she takes us through her experience growing up as a child of Cambodian refugees.  She saw, first hand, how hard her parents worked to have a slice of the American dream.  Utilizing her education and contemporary insights, she modernized the family business and as a result, DK’s Donuts & Bakery has become a Los Angeles institution.  Listen in to hear more about her story as an entrepreneur.  You’ll find that Mayly is full with love, compassion and humility.  

 

TLo and Mayly have a discussion around her experience as a person of influence in the AAPI community.  Note that this episode was recorded in the latter part of 2020, prior to the significant uptick in Anti-Asian hate crimes and incidents.  

 

It has always been our mission to connect with other modern womxn through the lens of our experience. We hope you enjoy this series as much as we do!

Connect with Mayly and support her businesses at the following links.  It is so important now, more than ever, to support not only our local small businesses but our AAPI-owned small businesses.

How SHE Built This: Lisa Tran of Tan Tan Foods

For this How She Built This episode, it is our honor to present to you . . . Lisa Tran!  First, for us, our recent friendship with Lisa is the embodiment of the benefits of networking.  TLo met Lisa on Clubhouse, and TLo subsequently introduced us all to Lisa.  We have become enamored with not only Lisa, but we have also become enamored with her story, her family, and her family’s story.  In this episode of HSBT, Lisa regales Chuk with her journey of turning vision into action by developing Tan Tan Foods sauce line, which she did with the goal of being able to generate consistent income while also being able to spend substantial mommy time with her precious twins.  Lisa also discusses how Tan Tan’s sauces were created with her mother’s recipes and gained popularity amongst the customers of her family’s restaurant – Tan Tan Café & Delicatessen!  More importantly, Lisa shares her own story of being born as a Vietnamese refugee in Indonesia, how her mother refined her sauce-making skills in the same refugee camp, and her parents’ love story that was borne during their escape from Vietnam – all of which laid the foundation for Lisa to create Tan Tan’s sauce empire and to introduce the wonder of her mom’s Vietnamese recipes to the American general public.  (Tan Tan’s sauces are carried in major grocery store chains like New Seasons Markets, H Mart, and coming soon to Safeway/Albertsons – she is kind of a big deal.) We could go on and on, but you should really just listen to the episode!  We cannot wait for you to learn more about Lisa!  Find her at @tantanfoods and tantancafedeli.com.  You can also learn more about her in her features in @entrepreneur and @bonappetit magazines!

How SHE Built This: Bitty Bao

Welcome BACK to the TITT Talks: How She Built This series! Season 3 pops off featuring the co-founders of Bitty Bao! This spin-off series is meant to intimately discuss the journey of building a business as a female entrepreneur in a 20-ish minute segment. These types of conversations inspire us here at TITT Talks, and we hope they do the same for you as well.

 

This week, we bring to you two hard-working, hustling moms – LuLu and Lacey, the creators of Bitty Bao (https://www.bittybao.com)!  Bitty Bao is a collection of Chinese Bilingual Board books that are a wonderful resource to opening your children’s eyes to the diversity in this world.  Their story, in their words: 

 

“A random 11pm text from Lulu lit up Lacey’s phone one December evening. It read, “So crazy thought, I want to write children’s bilingual Chinese books. Starting to form ideas and such, a series - like the Spanish series you follow. @lillibros - they’re inspiring! What are your thoughts on this? Too crazy? Totally feasible? Want to be my illustrator? Let’s do crazy together!”

Who sends an 11pm text asking someone out of the blue to make a book series with them? But more importantly, who says yes to such an endeavor under those circumstances? Lulu and Lacey do.

And so began our journey. We look forward to showing you highlights of our labor-of-love book making process, road to publishing, and all the fun we have along the way. (Mostly in the middle of the night after all our bitty babes are in bed and our houses are finally quiet!) We are so proud to announce our book series (in its infancy), #BittyBao - bitty books for bitty babes!

 

Join us as TLo takes you behinds the scenes as LuLu and Lacey tell their story about how they built their business (the ups and the downs) and how they are continuing to evolve and grow, all while being Mamas.

 

It has always been our mission to connect with other modern womxn through the lens of our experience. We hope you enjoy this new series as much as we do!

In essence, stories keep cultures alive. In them, we learn much about ourselves and those that came before us.  These stories deserve a platform to be showcased.  If we don’t do it, who will?  In this series, we’ll be paying respect and honoring our families.  Join us and learn part of our history as we each share individual legacy stories of our own families.

 

Today, TLo is your host and she will be paying honor and tribute to her PoPo (maternal Grandmother) who passed on New Year’s Day (2021). Rest in paradise, PoPo.
