In just about every scene, they’re blowing up in a very good way.
Many of the issues they face are finally coming to light.
And the entertainment scene? Well, it’s popping off like crazy. Cruising through social media, one can see that they’re helping each other, sharing platforms, messages, marketing and more.
Three events occurred to help me become very aware of this:
- Kim’s Convenience
I stumbled across this show on Netflix. I fell in love with the show immediately. Many Asian / Asian-American starred sit-coms have tried to make an appearance throughout the years and most have failed miserably, being cheesy, unrealistic and such. Convenience, on the other hand, absolutely rocks! See the trailer below.
- Crazy Rich Asians
A few years ago, I read the book and loved it. Not only was the writing pretty great, but alot of it took place in Singapore. I didn’t even realize it was being made into a movie until my social media channels starting blowing up with ads for it. And I mean like everywhere. I can’t wait to see it. See the trailer (seems to follow the book fairly well too :)) See the trailer below.
Being curious, I decided to search for Asian-American themed podcasts. What I found first were tons of people on Quora and forums across the web asking the same question: "What are some Asian American podcasts?" So I searched and searched. And then I decided to create an answer.
So here I’ve compiled a list of podcasts with Asian Americans on their mind. Some are serious, some are funny. But most are informational and enjoyable. I hope you find what you’re looking for. 🙂
A couple of quick notes before we get on with the list:
- If you’re unsure how to subscribe, or don’t understand the layout, etc. be sure to visit the Podcasts page and scroll to the bottom
- If you know of a Podcast you think would be a nice addition to this listing, look for the form on the page to Add to the Podcast Listings!
Thanks, and Enjoy! 🙂
