a nuanced take

Dr. Kiona is amazing and has once again delivered 10/10 content. Everyone mad in the comments clearly didn’t listen to the podcast and are just engaging in a hate campaign full of misinformation. If you want to hear a different perspective on complex subjects such as the travel industry (and how they need travel to SURVIVE) during COVID and the Asian-American experience, definitely give this pod a listen. Keep doing ya thing Tía Kiki.

My favorite educational podcast

This podcast helps me realize the ways I don’t even realize I’m being prejudice in many different ways. It changes my perspective on something every time a new episode comes out. Do yourself a favor and listen!!

awful

Kiona continues to harm and put Black people’s lives at risk - she has called the cops of BW and BM, refused to pay folks for their labor or underpays, and sitting idly when her followers make racist attacks against Black-owned orgs. Blocks anyone who points out any misinformation, and continues to profit off colonialism and imperialism while using the language of decolonization. She never stopped traveling during a pandemic, and encouraged others to do so. Look up @nowhitesaviors on ig to see the proof for yourself since she refuses to acknowledge the harm she is causing with her podcast and work.
