2017 was an amazing year. With so much support from our family, editors (Josh and Anthony, we mean you) and friends, we finally launched our Wǒ Men Podcast, a program that we have been thinking about doing for years.
It has been a magical journey. Every single guest was so generous and kind to open up and share their thoughts and lives with us. In that small studio, we had many deep conversations, touching the part of our hearts that we usually only keep it to ourselves. We feel we know each us so much better, even though many of the guests have been long-term friends.
We also really appreciate all the feedback and support we honorably received from our audience. Whenever we heard how our program helped them to know China better or inspired by the thoughts from the guest speakers, we just feel so happy and encouraged. This is what keeps us going!
Our editors Anthony and Josh are so amazing. Anthony introduced our program to the platform Radii and Josh gave us helpful feedback and provided all the support that we needed.
We also want to thank our lovely husbands who have been our biggest supporters behind the scene since day one. Yajun’s husband Jeremiah came up with the brilliant name of the podcast and also was our CTO and IT advisor (unpaid). Jingjing’s husband Nick contributed many great ideas on titles and was the source of ideas for many discussion topics. More importantly, both of them bore the noise during the editing on many days and nights. Nick once mentioned that he could only handle our loud laughter so many times on each night.:)
Last but not least, despite being friends for years, we have never been so close ever since we started planning for this podcast. We continuously brainstorm and feed ideas to each other, we discover similarities and differences between each other and keep each other encouraged and inspired.
God, this blurb turns into a long list of appreciation and becomes so cliché. However, if you don’t show your gratitude to the people you care during such a warm holiday season, when is a better time?
So to celebrate this wonderful time of the year, we issued our special Christmas episode of the Wǒ Men Podcast and shared our personal Christmas experiences. Hope this installment will bring some joy and laugh on this beautiful Christmas Eve.
Happy holidays and see you in 2018!
