Yes, We All Have a Story...or a Few
In this episode, Parthvi and Anya are banning chai and milo because you’ll probably need something a little bit stronger to get through this one. Get ready for a different kind of storytime from fellow millennials, who will be sharing anecdotes of prejudice they've experienced based on their appearance. These stories will make you feel the pain, discomfort, and frustration that these individuals had to go through, and most of which still face when they recount their experiences. Stories that range from subtle microaggressions to offensive racial slurs. Want to hear more? Grab your drink of choice and tune in to the last episode of the Multicultural Millennial Woman podcast’s very first season. If you're an immigrant or a person of color, you probably have a story too. Share your story on Instagram and tag @themmwpodcast and #mymmwstory.

Yes, We Rise Above Their Expectations Part 1
Join Parthvi and Anya as they discuss expectations. Whether from their parents, extended family, or society, these expectations have left a lasting impression on them and have made them who they are today. Anya looks back on a situation that now explains a great deal to her as an adult. And Parthvi shares the struggle of balancing familial approval with her career choices. Ultimately, they end up sharing the importance of finding out what fulfills them as individuals rather than letting expectations define their success. They also discuss how familial and societal expectations never really come to an end and give some 'still-in-progress' advice on how to rise above other people's expectations.

Yes, We Can't Sleep Over
Join Parthvi and Anya as they compare their childhoods to the depiction of American families on television. They discuss the similarities and differences of their childhoods growing up in the US (Parthvi) and Trinidad (Anya). Even though their parents don't know each other, they are kindred spirits in terms of their parenting strategies, from choosing friends for them to forbidding sleep overs. Anya and Parthvi acknowledge the parallels of their childhoods, and recognize that there must be more where that came from. Over the course of their friendship, they had learned that their mothers have even more in common, which inspired a fun game called, "Does Your Mother Do That Too?!" Parthvi and Anya end the episode by explaining the rules and playing one round of the game.

Yes, Women Still Endure Domestic Violence
Join Parthvi and Anya as they have a conversation around the articles published by the UN News and Forbes about the uptick in domestic violence due to government mandated quarantines. They talk about the tough situations these women must be in right now and how difficult it must be for the resource groups to actually help, given that many of these shelters are closed due to the coronavirus. They share the staggering statistics on how many more women are calling for help globally, and recognize that the women calling likely make up a small fraction of this vulnerable group.
