Very Informative Podcast

I started listening to “Multiracial Whiteboy” since it began. I love how Kim Noonan shares his own personal story growing up as an transracial and transnational adoptee in a Caucasian family. I’ve learned so much about race relations and the challenges BIPOC face day in and day out. Thank you for creating this wonderful podcast Kim!

Thoughtful Conversations

Dear Listeners,

Being mixed can feel lonely and isolating and often like there’s no place for you to fit. And when you listen to Multiracial White boy, it’s like finding your people without trying. Listening to these interviews, I’ve realized there is some commonalities in being a mixed race human. And if you’re not mixed and you are looking to learn more; hear stories and experiences that aren’t a part of your world, then this is the place to do it. Because thoughtful and vulnerable conversations about race in your earbuds is never a waste of time.
