Description

Join the hosts of Add to Cart, comedian-writer-director Kulap Vilaysack and veteran journalist SuChin Pak, in a subversive take on consumerism. Each week, they have honest, revealing (sometimes TMI) conversations about all the big and little things they’re adding to, or removing from, their carts. They decide what's worth the monetary/emotional investment, and what's not. From beauty products and health trends, to celebrities and philosophies they’re passionate about, our hosts dig into anything we buy into and what it says about who we are.

We’re going to need more weighted blankets because this week sucked. There’s always been racism towards Asian Americans, but hate crimes have increased substantially, and in the last couple of weeks, there have been multiple attacks against elders. So what do we do? We call Senators, we track bills, we donate, we speak out, we raise awareness. We do this, all while self-soothing with bras that fit us, non-chemical skin peels that refresh us, scalp brushes that rejuvenate us, and all, all of the Steven Yeun we can get.
