What People are Saying...

“The podcast is a gem – it creeps up on us, not lecturing, not judging, but still shakes us from the stupor of our secret colonial mentality.”
— Rappler

“The history of the United States cannot be properly told without including the stories of Filipino and Filipino American people. Paola Mardo's podcast presents a vital resource in telling that story.”
— The Southern Poverty Law Center's Teaching Tolerance project

“Timely, personal, and evocative, this Filipino-American’s podcast delves into seldom told stories about the Pinoy diaspora.”
— Manila Bulletin on Long Distance
