We’re highlighting two CapRadio podcasts that launched this year: “Mid Pacific” which explores what it means to be Asian American and “This is What it Feels Like” which puts us in the shoes of everyday people.
CapRadio’s launched “Mid Pacific” this spring, which explores what it means to be Asian American and the feeling of being caught between two worlds. As host Sarah Mizes-Tan explains, through food, politics, mental health, music– and much more– we learn how loaded of a question it can be. Today, we’re going to revisit a conversation we had about family. Whether Asian American, or you have a story of immigration– or you’re a 10th generation Californian– the family that comes before us shapes how we walk through life. And in recent years, the dynamic of Asian American families is taking more of the spotlight in pop culture. The biggest example this year is the Oscar winning film “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once.” And this film resonates deeply with some CapRadio journalists. Back in May, I sat down with Mid Pacific host Sarah Mizes-Tan, as well as CapRadio reporters Janelle Salanga and Kristin Lam about the significance of the film.
