    2 time Asian American Podcasters Association Golden Crane Award winning podcast...Militantly Mixed

    This week, I am popping off hiatus for a brief episode to announce that Militantly Mixed won the Asian American Podcasters Association's Golden Crane Award in the category of Asian Culture: Stories and Experiences aka Best Asian Stories. To win this specific category as a Mixed Black-Asian is amazing, I always say we are a part of the the story and this is validation of that. 

    Thank you to the @AAPodcasters Association and all the judges for my second #GoldenCraneAward

    It's not that I don't look Asian, it's that you've never seen an Asian like me before

    This week I am joined by Ryan Alexander Holmes. We talked about growing up Black and Chinese in a predominately conservative White neighborhood in the US, living in China, and being a big time content creator! Fun fact! We talked for 5 hours but you only get to hear 1 of that.

Awesome Mixed affinity space

Cathartic in how casually conversations touch on shared experiences amongst mixed folks while also hosting a diversity of topics that come up in relation to peoples more specific experiences/mixes/spaces they occupy. Sharmane has the humble auntie guidance we need. A great place to turn to when feeling alone in the mix.

Thank you! I appreciate this so much!

I just wanna say that I appreciate the message and stories that come from this podcast. I am Irish-Mexican who is white passing and have dealt with a sense of no identity or culture my entire life. I have never been able to talk about my feelings with anybody until I met my husband who is also Irish-Mexican. In recent days living in Minnesota, there are many hard conversations happening around racism on all levels. This Covid time has created a space which has forced me to work through this long standing identity crisis that I have pushed aside. This podcasts truely helps me feel like we are not alone. And that there are others who really understand our own unique challenges. I want to thank you for bringing this type of discussion into a more public eye, where often it gets glazed over or dismissed. Thank you!

Real, necessary talk!

I never knew how much I needed this—thank you, Sharmane!! I am a biracial woman who is white-presenting, but raised entirely by my black family—the identity crisis phenomenon is REAL...from the first episode I listened to, I felt truly seen for the first time in my entire life. Such good, deep conversation with every guest—I’m constantly learning more about myself and it’s been life-changing. Everyone should hear this podcast!
