👋 I’m Khe Hy, creator of the Rad Awakenings podcast. This is a podcast about getting unstuck, navigating transitions, and embarking on new adventures.
When I left my cozy finance job at age 35 – I had no idea what was next. All I knew was that I was comfortably numb. But as I embarked on the untraveled path, I realized that so many of the podcasts and blogs out there were about ways to crush it. And I was far from crushing it – in fact, I felt more crushed. I had never felt so alone.
Thankfully, along my journey I met countless entrepreneurs, professionals, and teachers who gave me a gift – their vulnerability. I was moved and inspired by their struggles, insecurities, and joys. I created this podcast to share their stories with you.

I’m the creator of RadReads, a weekly newsletter and blog read by 16,000 leaders, investors, academics and social entrepreneurs. Think of it as a weekly practice of looking within, quieting the mind, and unlocking compassion.
