Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Nov 28, 2022

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 55! In today’s In Case You Missed It (ICYMI) Encore Episode, we revisit Season 1, Episode 49 where we discuss Shih Yang, the most famous and accomplished pirate ever who just happened to be a Chinese woman. Her incredible life made her one of the most influential pirates in history not just in Asia. We also took time to celebrate Emma Raducanu and Leylah Fernandez, the amazing women of Asian descent at the U.S. Open who competed in the singles finals back in 2021. We closed this episode by talking about linguistics and the myth that all Asians mix-up the R and L sounds in English.
