The Mash-Up Americans is your guide to the hyphen-America world we all live in. Amy S. Choi and Rebecca Lehrer talk culture, identity, race and what makes us who we are. Get to know yourself, America. This season we're talking about grief in a special series called Grief, Collected.
At The Mash-Up Americans we are celebrating and challenging the raucous, colorful, complicated country we live in by asking all the important, awkward questions: What does it mean to be an immigrant in America? What cultural baggage do we bring to sex and relationships? Why is Korean skincare so popular? When does something get upgraded from the ethnic aisle?

In my top 5

Love this podcast so much it's in my top 5 to listen to. They give a great voice from themselves and their guests who all "mash up" and bring diversity in food and culture and how it impacts our relationships. Highly recommend!
