Headscarves & Good Yarns talks on all things race and diversity in the hopes of empowering a more empathetic New Zealand. We keep on pushing for those uncomfortable but much needed conversations to uplift voices that aren't normally heard or understood.
Yarns with Sze En
This week we chat to one of our favourite humans ever Sze En. Sze En is basically Wonder Woman who challenges us to get our shit together and see how we can make our world a lil bit better so she always drops her very valued and wise 2 cents on everything and anything. Amen for that. This week we talk dissapointing parents, identity and how she'll bring up wee Maze and Jett.
Our history, our story
We had the honour of chattin to Peter Chin who is an absolute legend. He's had many titles in his time including mayor of Dunedin and crime bustin lawyer. He is a descendant of one the earliest Chinese immigrants to NZ and this episode shares his history and story with us.
Guuuurl I gotta story for you!
Sabrina is a KWEEN living her best life in Dirty Dunners as an international student. She's currently packing up her past 4 years in boxes as she preps to move to the best capital in the whole world but she couldn't leave without telling us her stories of living as an Asian gal here. We talk cultural appropriation, standing up for yourself and race n politics. Tune in for this gem of an ep!
Yarns with the kween Bea
This week we sit down and chat with Bea, who like Hannah Montana, has the best of both worlds with her Filipino and Kiwi backgrounds so she has a pretty interesting spin when we spoke things body image, mental health and self care. Tune in to catch some gems and hear Bea's journey.

Kōrero with Taylor

It was a blessing chatting to this strong wāhine Taylor. All around boss woman being the president of Te Roopu Māori, Taylor chats to us about all sorts! We spin a yarn about the importance of Te Reo, how Māori are misunderstood in Aotearoa and her journey with Te Roopu Māori. Tune in for this empowering & insightful kōrero
