In this episode, we connect with the homie Mr. Ralph Hsiao of Rice Guys, a day after they had finished cleaning out their kitchen as they look towards new life ventures. We talk about the journey of grinding for your craft, what it's like to have free time after 15 months of hustling, and the process of doing the inner work and healing. The self reflection and vulnerability Ralph brought was next level, and made the conversation a powerful moment to capture and to be a part of!
In this episode we're chatting with Phil and Karlene aka Philene Cuisine! They were married this past weekend in a small intimate ceremony at Zion National Park, and this is our late night decompression of the weekend in the parking lot of a Victorville Panda Express parking lot inside of Esther's RAV 4.

In this episode we're chatting with a one of a kind personality and special human, Lance! He's an original Eayikes camper, and at only 21, has lived a tough road, but he takes it all in as part of his journey, and he keeps his hope at the forefront. He's got a fascinating personal story with a heart that understands that he's made for greatness, and is willing to commit to the journey and the hard work of it all.
In this episode we're eating Texas style burritos in Compton with Kani and discussing community. Kani is an organizer, and the founder of Peace of Mind Compton, a community hub and space. His love for the city and his perspective on the duality of pain and joy, and how community comes from that was straight wisdom. He's got a powerful vision and a deep love, and he's putting in the time for his community.
Today is a really special episode, because it's somebody who, in our community is super hallowed in Eayikes, she is compassion personified, unconditional love personified, and wisdom personified - Auntie Esther.
This is our podcast to hopefully create the opposite of that space for people to go deeper, to process, to learn, and to examine certain things about themselves and unlock their lives and relationships that have.
