MADE IN is a new podcast about Asian-Canadian stories, as told by Asian-Canadians. In each episode, we share stories about navigating through life and finding our identity as Asian women living in North America, hoping others can fill in the black to where they are ‘made in.’
From finding our own understanding of beauty in defying Asian and Western standards, to unpacking the model minority myth, especially when we feel we should be silenced after traumatic incidents to upkeep a a facade of perfection, our podcast hopes to break the boxes we’ve been told to put ourselves into to find our voice. Through conversation, debate, and letting our voices be heard, we hope that by addressing our struggles and successes, we can better understand ourselves and how we fit into the world.
