Welcome to Episode 18 of the Asian American History 101 podcast! In this week’s episode, hosts Gen & Ted Lai discuss the history of the model minority myth as well as some of the modern effects of the model minority myth. This is part 1 of the 2 part special. We also take some time to talk about the continued violence against Asians in the U.S., and we celebrate the achievements made recently in awards shows, including the Grammy Awards, the Golden Globes, the People’s Choice Awards, and the recent Oscar nominations. Take a moment to watch Alan Kim’s acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor in Minari. Want to learn more?
