Refreshing

I personally do not know the podcasters but I came across this Podcast via Instagram. I’m an American living in Prague. It’s a very honest perspective of being a three culture kid without being overly “woke.” It’s refreshing to hear an honest perspective of what is means to be Asian in North America, Europe and Australia. I’m curious as to what you all think about the latest Asian-American attacks in the US and the lack of media attention on it.
