Season 1 of The Banh Mi Chronicles podcast has finally concluded! Thank you to everyone who has followed and listened to the podcast. In the past 3 months (October '19), I am thankful to have the opportunity to interview my incredible guests for these 12 episodes. Back in early summer when I was planning for the podcast, I wanted to focus on uplifting API (Asian Pacific-Islander) locally in Chicago and beyond to hear their work they are doing for their community, .their family, and themselves. Oftentimes, the API narratives are often overlooked, neglected, erased, and forgotten in America. As more of our API continues to emerge thanks to renewed research and digital access, it is important that we advance our own history so that we have a blueprint for our younger generations to continue the work that we are doing in elevating the visibility and platform of our community, and stand against the erasure and oppression that ethnic, racial, LGBTQ+ minorities face here.
Special thanks to my guests, my friend Huythang Tran for designing the podcast logo, and Chanho Kim for his additional audio editing assistance. Be on the lookout for a special 2nd season soon!
