Add to Cart with Kulap Vilaysack & SuChin Pak

Lemonada Media

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.

    Joyful Recollections of Trauma with Paul Scheer

    It’s not Christmas yet, but Paul Scheer is gifting us with his cart and his new memoir, “Joyful Recollections of Trauma.” Paul sits down with the Aunties for a heart-to-heart like you’ve never heard before. They talk about his childhood, especially looking back as a parent of two, and how we learn to navigate relationships with our own parents into adulthood. It’s a conversation that shows laughter is not too far behind a good cry. Plus, as one third of How Did This Get Made?, Paul unpacks on co-host Jason Mantzoukas’ cube philosophy.

    Sip, Snack & Shred (with Sheng Wang)

    Sheng Wang is bringing that uncle energy. He’s showing up to the function with beer and peanuts, staying way too long, and then heading to the nearest botanical garden. Sheng tells the Aunties about his favorite ways to snack, including the peanut source he wants to gatekeep, and why he no longer has capacity for stuff. Plus, indulge in Sheng’s dulcet tones as he reads us a Mary Oliver poem.

    It’s a podcast family get-together this week, as the Aunties are joined by Samantha Bee, host of Choice Words on the Lemonada Media network.

    The Aunties Are Getting Out

    Spring has sprung, and the Aunties want to feel the wind on their skin (moisturized and with SPF, of course). The Pak-Benders embarked on Van Life, which has been long in the making. The journey had its ups and downs, and SuChin is reflecting on lessons learned. Like, what does dinnertime look like for four people in a treehouse? Meanwhile, Kulap has been attending shows on shows, and talks about what that means for her after the pandemic and writer’s strike.

    The Cult of Knick Knacks (with Amanda Montell)

    You’re in a cult! You’re in a cult! We’re allll in a cult! Amanda Montell, host of Sounds Like A Cult and all-around smartest person, joins the Aunties this week. She talks about her new book “The Age of Magical Overthinking,” and dives into why we add more things into our life when the solution is to pare down (the call is coming inside the house!) But that won’t stop Amanda – or the Aunties – from collecting things that just scratch that itch. Like lemon bells, LED candlesticks and bike figurines that remind her of Amsterdam. To quote Taylor Swift: “I got a blank space, baby…” and I’ll fill it with knick knacks.

    Hella Immigrant (with Susan Lieu)

    Author and playwright Susan Lieu joins the pod this week to create a trifecta of Asian Auntie shenanigans. She talks about writing her first memoir, “The Manicurist’s Daughter,” which chronicles her search for answers after losing her mother to a botched tummy tuck. It’s an emotionally raw conversation that will leave you hopeful that generational healing is just as real as the trauma. Then, the Aunties dive into her cart, which is truly an ode to Costco and its generous return policy. Susan also shares her solution to inflating matcha latte prices. 

    Lemonada has teamed up with Apple Books to bring you the Lemonada Book Club. “The Manicurist’s Daughter” by Susan Lieu is our audiobook of the month! Listen here.

    This week on the pod, the Aunties debrief about their IRL hang – with white husbands in tow – in Santa Barbara.

    Ironing Shirt and Face Wrinkles (with Laurie Kilmartin)

That is, if you count store-bought ramen and banana smoothies, which we do. Plus, Laurie shares how she recorded her new one-hour special with a wrinkly blouse, and what she’s doing to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
