Show Notes Chapter Markers


A conversation with a new friend, Daniela Hornskov Sun, writer, musician, producer, and all-around creative.  I came upon Daniela through the community she is a part of, THIIIRD. THIIIRD and their team asked us if we are able to help spread the word on their new podcast series, All My Half East Asian BFF that they just released (all episodes are out now so check it out!). If you have been following our feed, we spotlighted an episode of the podcast series here and now we are going to interview Daniela who is the producer for the podcast series and the one who had the idea for the podcast series. Listen to our conversation where we dived into Daniela's Mixed Asian upbringing/background, living in Europe, dealing with microaggressions, her work with THIIIRD and the podcast series.

Please support THIIIRD and their work as they are doing great things amplifying underrepresented voices, something we here at the podcast feel strongly about.
