Highly Recommend!!!

This is a very thoughtful, professional yet personal podcast. I love the format and the focus on Asian American news - which honestly is so essential nowadays and it’s a blank space in the podcast market that’s yet to be filed (until this podcast)!! It’s informative and if brings Asian American voices front and center. I also really like the hosts as they do a great job at narrating and interviewing guests. Highly highly recommend!

Important and Powerful

This first episode did an excellent job presenting the history and experience of Asian Americans in an accessible and informative way! I love the dynamic between the hosts and the seamless incorporation of Kabzuag Vaj's experience and thoughts. Her comments gave me much to think and reflect over. Very excited to see where this podcast goes!!
