Great show very informative

This show is great! Randy does an amazing job at showcasing the voices of others and creates content that is not only informative but also creates a space for Asians/Asian Americans to be heard and seen

Best for Asian American parenting!

I started listening due to the Viet Thanh Nguyen episode and then I started to listen to the Tony Ho Tran and then the whole podcast really blew my mind. I am a northerner and it moved me deeply considering raising biracial kids. Im thankful! Thank you. I love this podcast as a parent. I was born in 1991 in Hanoi. Born and raised in Vietnam. Went to America for college and settled down here. I didnt know the war thru the eyes of my fellow Vietnamese. It was boring history class. But now it is so vividly gripping with the time and of 2020.

A comfortable place

Beyond the great name "Bánh Mì Chronicles," Randy Kim is providing a much needed place to spotlight Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) voices and their stories. From musician Punisa Pov revealing the time her dying mother said, "I love you" for the first time over Skype to Dr. Ada Cheng, former tenured professor turned professional storyteller, there are many special moments here. I look forward to seeing how this podcast develops and grows.

Host Randy Kim Asks Thoughtful Questions

This new show is a must for anyone seeking more connection with Asian Americans and their stories. Based in Chicago, host Randy Kim, shares his life story and in doing so can inspire others. Definitely worth a listen!
