Necessary voices from an underrepresented group

This podcast highlights Bangladeshis who are doing creative, inspiring work and to my knowledge is the first podcast to do so. By sharing this narrative, they are re-writing the old stories about immigrants and generations of kids with immigrant parents. Definitely worth a listen.

Phenomenal. This is for the culture.

I’m absolutely astounded with the platform BengalisofNewYork has created in order to shed light on a diverse group of extremely talented Bengalis from all backgrounds and walks of life. I would 100% recommend that you listen and share.
