A wonderful, enriching and insightful podcast! Thank you Ms. Tan!

Stumbled upon this after hearing the Pho episode on NPR. As an Asian-American, the bicultural perspective is one that reasonates strongly. Excellent production and well-crafted. Not sure when or if a second season is due, but happy to wait patiently. I highly recommend this podcast!

Wonderful voice for the Vietnamese American Community

Update: Still Waiting for more content from Thanh, every few months I go back and listen to season one.I like that Thanh brings up topics that all of us Vietnamese American living in America faces through the decades since the Vietnam War. What I love about this podcast is Thanh. Her presentation and delivery of her ideas through the format of this show is fantastic. Here’s to hoping for plenty of future episodes to come.

Evocative and challenging

Really gets to the heart of the immigrant experience. I recall my own elder family members and their experiences with the ties (and efforts to assist) their Easter European relatives. This podcast shows both the particular and the universal aspects of life for immigrants to our country.

Finally, something from the Vietnamese-American experience

I’m a 1.5 generation Vietnamese-American, and have always felt there hasn’t been a forum for our perspective, and voice, to be heard. Thank you Thanh for making this podcast possible, and through your personal stories and experience, I’m able and I hope many more Vietnamese-Americans, can start a dialogue with our families and our communities. To start healing and moving forward together.

Excellent Podcast

I heard the Pho episode while listening to NPR One a few weeks ago. The title of the episode caught my attention, because it is one of my favorite meals. I immediately downloaded the Podcast and heard all of the episodes.I am an ethnic Chinese who was born in Saigon. My family came to the United States exactly 39 years today (2/9). I am thankful to my parents every day for their courage to leave Saigon with four young daughters and their extended family in 1978 in hopes of starting a new life. My Dad was 38 and my Mom was 32, with four daughters all under the age of 7. My parents have sacrificed so much to give my four sisters (my youngest sister was born in the US) a great life. We truly are living the American dream all thanks to their love and perseverance. Although we can never repay them for their sacrifice, we do our best to show our gratitude by giving them the life that they missed out on to give us the life we had. They are retired and enjoy spending time with their 5 daughters and sons-in-law and 7 grandchildren!Please keep the great stories coming. Thank you for sharing your stories and experiences. I look forward to the next season!

Emotional and Raw

Thanh is such a great storyteller and she helped me to learn more about my Vietnamese background as I am, too, a Vietnamese American refugee. The episodes get me emotional and gives me so much more awareness. I’m more appreciative of my life now. Thank you and I look forward to the next season!

Essential listening if you're Vietnamese-American

But also very worthwhile for any immigrants, children of immigrants, or anyone curious about the immigrant experince and how weird it can be. Most of the episodes are brief but pack in a lot of great storytelling. It's almost therapeutic to listen to as a Viet (born and raised US) who grew up feeling caught between two cultures.
