The Mash-Up Americans is your guide to the hyphen-America world we all live in. Amy S. Choi and Rebecca Lehrer talk culture, identity, race and what makes us who we are. Get to know yourself, America.
We are celebrating and challenging the raucous, colorful, complicated country we live in by asking all the important, awkward questions: What does it mean to be an immigrant in America? What cultural baggage do we bring to sex and relationships? Why is Korean skincare so popular? When does something get upgraded from the ethnic aisle? Amy and Rebecca, first-generation Americans themselves, talk to Mash-Up luminaries such as Randall Park and Maz Jobrani, as well as experts, listeners, and up-and-comers, to dive into all of the complexity we face as people who straddle multiple cultures and identities.
