Celebrate AAPI Heritage Month

1 year ago

In this episode we're celebrating AAPI Heritage Month, let us know how you're celebrating!

Trigger Warning - Brief mentioning of physical assault in the first 20 minutes

New week, new episode, and this week we are celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPI). In our efforts to amplify AAPI Unicorns, we’re taking some time today to not only discuss how we are celebrating AAPI Heritage Month, but also some topics of concern within the community that we can all be educated on. In this episode we’ll hear us discuss:

  • The acts of physical violence done to Asian Americans and the uptick of incidents since Covid- 19
  • Colonization and Hawaii
  • The overtourism  of Hawaii and its negative impacts to the island and its people 
  • Hawaii during the pandemic 
  • Can we appreciate Hawaii without traveling to it?
  • We share some exciting reads centered around AAPI 
  • We share a couple video series (linked below) with AAPI content 
  • We fangirl over Michelle Yeoh as we discuss the movie Everything Everywhere All at Once (No spoilers, we promise)

We end our episode as always, in our Happy Place hint - Rappers, authors, and dairy products will always leave you feeling just right.
