Love this podcast!
I'm so happy that I came across this podcast! It's a great podcast to listen to on the subway.
As a Latina, learning about other cultures nourishes my soul. I love getting an insight on Asian culture, history & mores. (My only problem is that even on volume full blast, there's sound issues.)
Insightful conversation about important issues facing the Asian American community like cultural appropriation, white washing and affirmative action! The hosts have an easy rapport, this pod is a great listen and will definitely make you think : )
