    EP #41: KUSANG LOOB

    Why does the word "loob" often use in the Filipino language?

    Is it indicative of the inner workings of the Filipino psyche?

    the concept of loob
    What does it say about the worldview of the Filipino?
    What is kusang loob?
    How does the concept of kusa cause conflict in the Filipino/x homes?

    EP #40: LAKAS NG LOOB: FILIPINO INDIGENOUS TRAIT

    EP #40: LAKAS NG LOOB: FILIPINO INDIGENOUS TRAIT

    Why does the word LOOB appear so often in the Filipino lexicon? The English language do not do justice in its translation. At best, I translate it as the innermost workings of the Filipino psyche/soul.



    In this episode, let's explore:


    the concept of loob and its indigenous qualities
    what it means to be Malakas ang Loob
    How this trait is useful to the Filipinos in the motherland
    How this trait can be useful to the Filipinos in America/diaspora
    ...atbp

Embracing a New Culture

This podcast is fantastic! As an American who married a Filipino American about a year ago, this podcast has helped me to better understand, communicate with, and connect with my in-laws as well as better appreciate and embrace the culture. Plus my husband is learning a bunch and loving it too.

Grateful this exists!

Roanne is so informed & insightful! She does an excellent job of explaining the nuances of our culture. I love that she sheds light on our collective experience while being sensitive to how diverse it is. So much of what she says resonates with me. Simply affirming in so many ways. I’ve learned so much! Highly recommend!!

Lea002 ,

Love!

Roanne’s insight truly helps me navigate my Filipina-American heritage!!!! “Together but separate” is a powerful line!!!! Can’t wait for more episodes!!!!
