Between 1975 to 1990s, almost two million Vietnamese risked their lives to flee oppression and hardship after the Vietnam War, in one of the largest mass exoduses in modern history. Escaping by boat, many were captured and brutally punished, and hundreds of thousands died along the journey. This population of people are known as the ‘Vietnamese Boat People' and these are their stories.

What a great bridge to connect with heart!

This podcast has such a compassionate way to address the different emotions and experiences from Vietnamese people, that builds a lovely connection with the heart. Every time I listen to an episode I find myself looking inside me, discovering what my raw heart has to share. I feel so much respect for this community, as they are an example to all of us. Forever grateful.

Needed Stories!

Thank you so much for this podcast. I am working on the dramaturgy for the play Vietgone by playwright Qui Nguyen who is a second generation refugee from Vietnam. This podcast really helped me to feel and see this experience from real people and their real stories so I can better understand the play, and the historical inspirations. I believe people every would benefit from this podcast!
