Bianca Gonzalez-Intal is like the older sister we all wished we had growing up. She gives sensible advice and is always willing to lend an ear to the listeners’ problems. What started out as an adulting handbook in 2014 eventually became a YouTube series. And now Paano Ba ‘To?! is a podcast, as well.
Her book Paano Ba ‘To?! How to Survive Growing Up is a bestseller in the Philippines. From blogging to writing for publications, being an editor and columnist, she has come a long way since. It was her #AskBianca segments on Twitter and Instagram that prompted her to compile those life lessons. Since she’s now a married woman and a mother of 2, Bianca has gained even more life experiences and lessons that she can share with her audience.
The description of the podcast reads, “Every week you ask “Paano Ba ‘To?!” and along with a special guest who asked that same question Bianca Gonzalez will answer your letters asking for advice on life, career, love or self, in hopes of helping you make life’s problems a bit more bearable.” It only feels fitting for the TV host to finally start her own podcast after the success on other platforms.
In addition to the advice given by herself and the guests, she will also be sharing answers or advice sent in by the listeners — something a little different from her usual format. The first 2 episodes were launched this month which focuses on love and relationships, featuring Megan Young and Mikael Daez, and Kyrz Uy and Slater Young, respectively. These couples also happen to have their own podcasts where they talk about similar topics.
We could all benefit from hearing other people’s insights on particular topics and find someone whom we can relate to our problems. Catch the Paano Ba ‘To?! Podcast on Spotify, Podtail or tune in to the series on Bianca Gonzalez’s YouTube channel where a new episode will be released every Monday at 11 PM.
