Makes me feel heard and seen!

As an Asian American Christian this podcast speaks to the things that I often ponder on my own (racial identity and faith, social issues) and it gives me a language for speaking about these issues with others. I feel less alone when I hear the issues I care about being discussed on the podcast and it’s refreshing to hear Asian American voices in the Christian world - all of the topics they discuss resonate with me so much! Thankful for the podcast and hope the episodes keep on coming!

A Good podcast that dives into conversation we need for real justice.

I’m really grateful to have come across this podcast as a Korean-American. It’s my senior year of college, fully in the prime season for reflecting on one’s identity. And, each and every episode just really punched into all and any questions I’ve had or even never realized I’ve had for the longest time. Thank You All!!

Encouraging, motivating

I’m an Asian-American woman in a predominantly white community. This podcast helps me feel seen and stay connected to like-minded (justice-minded) people! Grateful for the work of the AACC!
