Episode 11: Mixed-Race Families Matter

Mixed-race families are becoming more and more commonplace, as evidenced by everything from The Pew Research Center’s data to the latest Census reports. In this episode, we continue to talk about the experiences of those who come from mixed-race families, like Katie Bullard and Jesse Chen.

Katie Bullard, who is Chinese, lives with her parents, both white, and her younger brother Jacob, who is Vietnamese, in Brevard, North Carolina. Her two older siblings, Gio and Jessie, are both mixed-race and also adopted. Bullard graduated with a degree in English from Guilford College in 2017, and hopes to soon teach English abroad.

Jesse Chen is a DJ from Hartford, Connecticut. He is Asian and white as well as Jewish, and has worked at Temple Sinai as a song leader and URJ Eisner Camp as a camp counselor. He currently works at Powerstation Events.

The Nasiona Podcast shares stories that explore the spectrum of human experience and glimpse into foreign worlds. We focus on stories based on facts, truth-seeking, human concerns, real events, and real people, with a personal touch. From liminal lives to the marginalized, and everything in between, we believe that the subjective can offer its own reality and reveal truths some facts can’t discover. Hosted, edited, and produced by Julián Esteban Torres López.
