    I loved your podcast! It was strong and showed me how much your family means to you. I really liked all of the memories that you shared as well as how you said how each person plays a part in your life.

    Hi Aditi,
    This podcast is really deep, and the way you speak makes the listener feel the emotions that you had supposedly felt. This shows listeners how important you are to your family, and how your family is important to you.

    I like the how you described memories to remember your family’s love. I could feel your family’s love through your podcast! Great job,

    Hi Aditi I like how you show your opinion through your experience, and I could feel your emotions when you were young. And I love “Brocolli tastes like chocolate”?. And I love your family relationship 🙂

    Hi Aditi,

    I agree with you. My family has sacrificed a lot for me and now I realized that I have not been appreciating them as much as I should. I like when you listed funny memories you had with your family. “The time when my grandma tried to convince me that broccoli tasted just like chocolate.” Love it.

    This podcast is very touching and I really like your message that family is important and to appreciate every moment you have with them.
    I really loved the part when you said, ‘the time I won a public speaking award and my grandpa shouted ‘that’s my girl,’ very loudly and god banned from shouting.’
    I can definitely relate coming from a big fat indian family myself.

    Hi Aditi,
    I really liked your podcast, the memories are very vivid, and I especially like the part with the brocolli, and the somewhat sarcastic humor of that line. Your title is also humorous, but your story makes me kinda sad, because I agree with you that family is very important.

    I love your recording,
    And your voice is wonderful.
    But maybe you should add some pictures so we can know what you are talking about.

    The appreciation, security, and admiration you share about your family brings up great memories of my growing up in a “Big Fat Filipino Family” :). This is a touching story that I hope you share with your grandparents, mom, and brother – I am sure they will feel very proud of this podcast.

    “Cinnamon tea, wrapped in blankets, in winter…” It is the attention to detail here that puts us into the moment, and activates our senses. We are all with you, feeling the comfort that only a grandmother can give and it elevates our connection to your theme. Thank you for you courage Aditi, the strength that you have found in family will serve you well. A precious moment and memory that you can feel proud to have written. Well done!

    Your podcast was very strong and powerful. I like how you used many memories to show that family is very important and that it is a safe place. I really liked it!

    I completely agree with you, your podcast leaves a message of how family can be important, and how they really love you. Sharing you memories makes the reader fell the emotions you felt at those points, every memory being detailed and vivid. Great podcast.

    Yi Hou!!!!

    I love your message and tone. Your small little narratives that are placed so intricately between the powerful bits of direct emotion. It flows so perfectly and shows your attachment to the memories you’ve made. In the places you use metaphors and little quirky bits of internal dialogue, thats where it really shows your personal connection to the broad topic of family. A beautiful, meaningful, candid piece.

    Family is important, it does welcome us and it accepts us. Your family seems like a very happy place, I have a family that also helps and supports me. Your writing is wonderful, it really seems like you are someone that likes speaking out loud a lot.

    I agree too, family does welcome and accept us. Also, I found the line funny when your grandpa screamed “that’s my girl!!” And then got banned in the theatre. Sorry if that’s mean.
