    Episode 54: An Earnest Fight Against Anti-Blackness

    Episode 54: An Earnest Fight Against Anti-Blackness

    Brought to you by our co-host, Afsana Oreen:

    Anti-Blackness within the South Asian diasporic community is often not discussed. That’s why I was excited to learn how Nina Bhattacharya – a writer, educator, and cultural organizer – combats anti-blackness. I invite you to modify her strategies, with some additional guidance from the Aerogram’s article “The Revolution Starts with My Thathi,” the next time you need to confront anti-Blackness in your community or in unfamiliar spaces.

    Episode 53: SEARAC: Affirmative Action and Data Disaggregation

    Affirmative action has been one of the hottest debates for a while within our community and I thought that it would be really helpful to have Quyen Dinh, Executive Director from the Southeast Asia Resource Action Center, also known as SEARAC, on the podcast to share her personal story as well as SEARAC’s findings on the important impact affirmative action and data disaggregation has had on our Southeast Asian American community.

    Episode 52: NAPAWF: Reclaiming Our Bodies and Minds through Political Advocacy and #BodyLove

    Tired of being told how we should navigate the world, Sung Yeon Choimorrow and I will be opening up the conversation on body issues by first discussing and dispelling stereotypes fostered by microaggressions, internalized racism, fatphobia, racism, and more. Later on in the podcast, Sung Yeon also will share her professional involvement with body politics through means of organizational advocacy under the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF).

As an Asian American male, I still found so much relatable material

Really amazing podcast! Although I am not an Asian American Woman, I still found myself relating to many of the topics covered in this podcast. As someone who has had Asian American friends struggle with mental health issues, Episode 2 really hit me hard from the beginning. Soon, I found myself listening to each episode in order of release, finding discussion topics that related to my own personal life. Growing up in a predominantly white community, I just kind of took my experiences as my own isolated instances, but I was surprised to hear that others have experienced similar struggles with identity and "fitting in" or "standing out" while attempting to maintain cultural pride. I ended up listening to every episode, and although there were some that didn't connect with me as much, each episode was really well edited and produced. The stories from the interviewees, especially episodes 19 and 20, were heavy hitting and really informative. I also found episodes 7 and 22 very powerful, and have shared them with friends who I think would also find value in them. Really well done, excited to see what's next for Project Voice!

I want to like it more

I’m struggling with how to rate/write this review. I listened to one episode and found the guest very interesting but was very distracted by the host’s voice. She sounded so sleepy and lethargic that it took away from the content. I may come back another time and give it one more shot as I’d like to like the podcasts. 🤷🏻‍♀️
