Because We Overthink, Words Within

BWOWW is a podcast about personal reflections on our early 20s hosted by Ngan Nguyen and Rachel Wong. As humans working on expressing our emotions more openly, we’ve developed this podcast to share with our friends & family, our deepest thoughts on various topics such as failures, identity as Asian American women, friendships, etc, in the format of letters to ourselves and honest conversations that follow. We hope to eventually address any questions from our listeners as we grow together.
