What I’ve been needing and I didn’t even know it

I want to thank Paula and Patrick for investing their time and talent into telling the stories of our community. What gets me through hard times are narratives of my ancestors and our beautiful Filipino Diaspora like the ones in Long Distance. A truly high-quality and insightful podcast that makes me feel more connected with my Fil-Am Fam.

Finally!

This is not the first podcast about Filipino culture but this is the first podcast I have heard that dives deeper into what and why. It’s not just about food or stereotype subject matter. Within the first episode it starts to unpack the questions that so many Filipinos have being in diaspora. Who are we? What values do we align with? What is the Filipino culture? What are we capable of?

Thank you for this. I didn’t know how to unpack it and I’m glad that you have.

Story telling at it’s finest!!!!!!

Paola’s story-telling really takes you to the places she talks about.... it’s as if I am walking the same road, smelling the food, hearing the music, and in the same room she is in. Makes me miss home; makes me want to hear more stories. Listen. Subscribe. You won’t be sorry!!!
