Southern Fried Asian is a new podcast from The Nerds of Color hosted by Keith Chow.

Typically, stories about Asian Americans are centered on the experiences of those who grew up on the coasts -- New York, Southern California, the Bay Area -- where communities of different Asian American subgroups have lived for many years.

On this podcast, though, we're gonna look at a region of the country that isn't typically associated with these stories and unpack what it means to be Asian American in the American South.

Very important intersection!!!

I love how this podcast highlights the intersection of Southern ASIAN (Americans)!!! As someone who identifies as a southern Asian (specially Lao), it’s been validating to listen to other Asian stories from the south! Please keep this podcast up✊🏽✊🏽🔥🔥💕💕
