Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Apr 12, 2021

Welcome to Episode 21 of the Asian American History 101 podcast! Gen & Ted begin to cover the daunting task of discussing the history of anti-Asian massacres and lynchings in the United States in part 1 of an ongoing series called ‘Merica’s Forgotten Massacres. Yeah, MFM… one of our favorite true crime podcasts… We also introduce a new segment called “Origins” where we talk about the strange, slightly racist origins of some common idioms or slang. This week we talk about the phrase “Long time, no see.” Want to learn more? Visit our site at or for social media. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, email us at
