We thought we’d do something a little different in this quick episode and dive in to some Worldly News! Of course in theme with the podcast, we’ve chosen two articles within the Asian Diaspora landscape; one that’s a bit more hard hitting 😖and another article with some Good News feels to finish it off 🥳. Listen in as we break down the tension between National governments after the arrest of Asian Australian journalist Cheng Lei and how representation in the form of Barbie Dolls will have a lasting impact on the growing mindset of future generations.
