Intellectual conversations about being Pilipino. I mean really “being” Pilipino. Conversations are smart, funny, thought-provoking and they speak to my soul. Salamat po.

I'd like to produce an episode about nicknames! You can do that by either recording a voice memo and emailing it talk@balikbayanshow.com, or you can call me and leave a voicemail, at (971) 800-1389.

Tell me your formal name, where you're calling from, your nickname, and how you got that nickname. Bonus points for any other stories about your nickname that have stuck with you over the years.

Rank #2: Voicemails: What Filipino Food Means

Podcast cover
Read more

Does this count as a bonus episode? This is a re-airing of a short episode I produced a while back for Racist Sandwich, a podcast about food, race, class, and gender.

I promise this show won't be just about food, but I'd to give you all an idea of what kinds of formats I'm interested in. Yes, you'll hear one-on-one interviews, but I'd also love to experiment with your stories and your voices. This is fairly short, but making this episode was special to me.
