    Arrii Parrii with Tigran Grigoryan

    Recently, I heard someone refer to New Year's Resolutions as New Year's Revolutions - and I'm all in! In this episode, we introduce Tigran Grigoryan's brand new dance exercise program - think of it as Zumba but with music you would hear at an Armenian wedding! It's suitable for all ages & abilities and will have different dance moves for men and women (just like traditional Armenian dance). So, if you're in the mood to try something new, join me in dancing the night away! Tig has generously provided our listeners with a 10% discount code, just enter APARM at checkout.
    Happy New Year! Thank you for being part of our Armenian Enough family. May 2022 be your best year yet.

    Inside The Armenian Dating Show with Vanessa Ansoorian and Shant Nazarian

    Inside The Armenian Dating Show with Vanessa Ansoorian and Shant Nazarian

    In this episode, we get a behind-the-scenes look at what it was like to be a "Main Dater" on the first ever Armenian dating show. Vanessa and Shant talk about some of the most anxiety-inducing moments on camera as well as what they have learned, not only about dating, but also about themselves as a result of participating in this groundbreaking social experiment. The Armenian Dating Show is full of cultural treasures. Chief among them is the representation of Armenians who don't necessarily fit the traditional mold but whose genuine dedication to their heritage shines through at every turn.
    You can watch The Armenian Dating Show on their website at www.TheArmenianDatingShow.com
    Or on YouTube @Miaseen,Inc.

    Making The Armenian Dating Show with Anthony Abaci & Zoe Malhotra

    Making The Armenian Dating Show with Anthony Abaci & Zoe Malhotra

    The Armenian Dating Show is one of those ideas whose time has (thankfully) come! Showcasing a variety of diasporan Armenians is arguably the hallmark of our podcast - but the sheer array of different  expressions of being Armenian is also a truth that emerges from the singles, whose dating lives we catch a glimpse of on the show. The genuine care on behalf of cast & crew alike allows for the vulnerable reality of a first blind-date to be captured and experienced vicariously through the safety of our screens. The Armenian Dating Show feels authentic and honest in a way that harkens more to documentary filmmaking than to what we have come to expect of so-called reality television. Beautifully shot and edited, the series feels nothing like a YouTube show, and everything like a Netflix show you might binge watch with friends over the weekend!

    Modeling Intersectionality with Yasmin Almokhamad Sarkisian

    Modeling Intersectionality with Yasmin Almokhamad Sarkisian

    The task of discovering our individual identity is made that much more challenging when our very foundation is built upon shifting sands. Yasmin was raised by a Christian-Armenian mother and Muslim-Syrian father who emigrated to the United States when Yasmin was a child. In the midst of the push & pull of competing cultures, religious beliefs, and societal expectations, they were able to forge an identity uniquely theirs. Yasmin's confidence is as compelling as her vulnerability is disarming - truly, a model for us all.
    You can reach Yasmin on their website www.yasminalmo.com

    On Being Aboriginal and Armenian with Kya Branch

    On Being Aboriginal and Armenian with Kya Branch

    Do the people currently living on ancestral Armenian lands give any thought to the indigenous people of that land? Do they know they're living on Armenian soil, where countless generations of our people lived and loved and perished? How much thought do we give to the indigenous people of the land we call home today? Kya's Aboriginal roots provide a rich framework within which to explore their recently discovered Armenian DNA. Kya's curiosity of and reverence for history and tradition inspires us all to pause and ponder our own unique cultural legacy.
