    Podcast Spotlight - But Where Are You Really From? - Angela & Jesse Lin / #70

    Podcast Spotlight - But Where Are You Really From? - Angela & Jesse Lin / #70

    Another Podcast Spotlight episode featuring "But Where Are You Really From?" Podcast

    About the podcast:

    "But Where Are You Really From?" Podcast:

    Hosts and life-long best friends Angela Lin and Jesse Lin explore their identities as Asian-Americans through the lens of their first-generation upbringings and how those influences have shaped how they see the world and their place in it.

    Each episode explores a different topic of identity or common struggle. Many episodes feature special guests from both the Asian and broader POC communities bringing their unique perspectives, showing us that there's so much more that connects us than divides us. 

    This is a conversation about the podcast, "But Where Are You Really From?" Podcast, their hosts, Angela and Jesse Lin, the origin story of the podcast, being Asian Americans and everything you would expect Asian American Diaspora-themed podcasters to talk about when they all get on a call to talk shop about the podcast game. It's a fun one!   

    Episodes mentioned in the conversation:
    Unpacking Asia Diaspora (ft. Cherrie from With Chinese Characteristics)
    Terrible Twos (Two-year anniversary episode)
    If There's No Fortune Cookie, Is it Really Chinese? (ft. Angela's Dad)

Linda Yi ,

Wonderful and relatable

As an artist/entrepreneur, I love hearing the off the beaten path stories from Kyle’s guests! Thank you for the thoughtful deep dives you take us listeners through🥰

MChanT2 ,

Just what I was looking for!

So well done! Been looking for a podcast like this. Interesting topics and range of guests. Kyle does a great job asking deep questions and getting to the heart of each topic.

Piquetures by Nomi ,

So validating to hear similar stories as mine!

I think it’s interesting because for the first time I’m encountering stories that parallels mine. Despite having fellow Asian American friends, my conversations never go in this direction (partially because other factors played into feelings of isolation and disconnect), so I missed out on getting to find solidarity in other AAPI experiences. I also adore that this podcast shares so many female stories which I find personally very empowering. The questions appear carefully considered and it’s obvious that Kyle (the host) does his research before each interview. Overall, a really fun, eye-opening, and easy-to-binge type podcast that I would highly recommend! :-)
