Helped me understand myself

Self Evident helped me explore parts of my Asian American identity that I’ve thought about for years but didn’t know how to contextualize/didn’t think about until listening to the episodes. I’m Vietnamese American and I loved moments that talked specifically about my diaspora of people. I also loved how many different kinds of Asian communities were represented (South East Asian, South Asian, Pacific Islander & more). I loved how the producers incorporated listener audio as well as sounding like really people! It’s about time we had a show dedicated to Asian Americans who aren’t celebrities and telling their stories honestly and beautifully. ❤️ 10/10 would recommend!

Love the nuances!!!

Beautifully nuanced podcast about Asian American stories! Love that it not only brings folx to think about identity politics— but gives a platform to see Asians and listen to Asians be a part of political movements such as stopping deportation! Thanks for working diligently on these important narratives🙏🏽🙏🏽!

A very well executed podcast that at times brought me to tears and also drove me to action. No matter your background, I think you'll both learn and relate to the thoughtful storytelling in Self Evident.
