Do you have a story about going to language classes, Saturday schools, religious community groups, clubs, music lessons, or other alternative classrooms where you learned about your culture or heritage? Was it a positive, negative, or mixed experience for you?

We're producing an episode of the podcast exploring the ways that we learn where we come from — for better or for worse. And we want this episode to be based in the experiences of you, our listeners.

So please share your story with us:

  1. Record a voice memo on your phone. Please keep it to three minutes or less. It doesn’t have to be perfect!
  2. Email your voice memo to Include your name, location, and age in the email.

We’re looking for a wide variety of stories and memories, including from people of South Asian, Southeast Asian, East Asian, and Pacific Islander descent; mixed-race folx; adoptees; kids; parents; grandparents; and people who speak a language other than English.
