Episode 7: How to Find Your Origin Story with Kulap Vilaysack
When showrunner and filmmaker Kulap Vilaysack realized that a part of her felt missing, she did what comes naturally and made it an on-screen project. Cristen and Caroline talk to Kulap about navigating relationships with her Laotian refugee parents and going the distance to unpack her family baggage. Plus, the premiere of Ask a Girl, where we hear from almost-10-year-old Courtney about the ups and downs of being smart, negotiating with boys, and how growns can relate to girls.
