This is not like most of my podcasts I share. This was a rough one. After the Atlanta and Boulder mass shootings, I wanted to share my thoughts about our current climate and share some info about the victims. I haven’t spoke about this must on social media because it’s hard to share these types of feelings or thoughts in 15sec bouts or a small caption. It just felt right to share it here instead. And below are some organizations and different sites/links to help you figure out how you can support the Asian communities around you as well as some of the victims families. Thank you so much for listening to this tough episode, I really appreciate it.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Juli, you have such a tender heart, and a good heart. I’m so sorry people feel the need to come online and tear you down. It is not your job to educate people on current events and issues. I’ll never understand people who think…’you know what I’m going to do? I’m going to go on (fill in the blank’s) website/Instagram/Twitter/Facebook) and tell them how wrong they are, how uneducated they are, how ignorant they are. Because I’m right and I know everything.’ Because that’s all it is, if you think about it. Who cares what these strangers think. Care about what Brian and Carra and Jess and Laura and Lexi and Cassy Joy (and Gene and Carol, LOL) think about you. They all think you’re pretty terrific, because they know you, and they know your heart. These hateful commenters don’t know you. Hell, I don’t even know you but I know the names of these friends and family because you talk about them so often with such affection and gratitude.

    I saw this link on my local Castle Rock Nextdoor page to a Go Fund Me for Officer Talley’s wife and 7 children: https://gofund.me/11d2f3bb. This latest Boulder shooting has definitely hit me hard – just thinking about Officer Talley running into danger to save the lives of complete strangers…and regular people just going to grocery store…it just gets to me. When you spoke of the incredible women in Atlanta who were just working hard and trying to better the lives of their families…it just hurts. Your podcast was a beautiful tribute to these lovely people whose lives were cut way too short.

  2. Juli,
    I’m currently listening to this podcast. I’m crying with you. You SAID THEIR NAMES!!! You are kind and caring for using your platform to talk about this horror. I appreciate you ❤️

  3. I think what really puts people off is how you much energy you put forth into complaining about how you feel attacked and why you shouldn’t be subject to criticism , rather than examining the criticism from a place of self awareness and reflection . You managed to make a podcast episode about the tragic events , mostly about yourself? When you spend the first half of the podcast lamenting your own personal injury when your followers ask you to show support (really – that’s doing the absolute least, so your silence speaks volumes) it’s hard to tell if your emotions are actually about the real victims of these awful massacres, or if your emotional reaction is about your own ‘victimhood.’ Truly – that’s very off putting.
    It’s amazing to me, how some people who make their living in the “influencer” space, have adopted entire personalities around how they shouldn’t experience criticism. I’m not talking about responding to or engaging trolls who make comments about someone’s appearance or something- but folks are right to point out the cowardice that seems on display when an influencer flat out refuses to acknowledge issues that greatly impact the community they claim to care so much about cultivating. Or are the white members of your community who are so privileged that they are able to ignore these issues completely , the only ones who matter?

    1. Feel better about yourself Brittany? Practice what you so smugly preach, and channel your assumptions, negativity, and self-righteous judgement into something good and of use.

  4. Juli I just really wanted to say thank you for this podcast. It left me speechless. I think that was the best way that you could have used your platform for good.
    Sending as much love and positivity to you (and Brian, and Jackson) as possible.

    1. Juli, you’re my favorite person to listen to and I loved your latest podcast. I was crying with you! It is beyond words for you to dedicate your entire episode to the victims and I believe you are doing your best. Thank you for giving me space to reflect on the actions of others and push myself to always be better. You’re truly so thoughtful, caring, and empathetic. I will always be your fan.
