RISE A Pop History of Asian America from the Nineties to Now

by | Read by Brittany Ishibashi, Fiona Rene, Nick Martineau, Rama Vallury, Matthew Yang Kim, Jeff Yang, Phil Yu, Philip Wang

Contemporary Culture • 19.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

A full cast of Asian-American narrators take listeners on a vibrant and thought-provoking journey through Asian-American pop cultural history. Journalist Yang, blogger Yu, and producer Wang's fun and poignant history is recounted through multilayered essays, playlists, and interviews. With deftness and conviction, the narrators alternate between playfully celebrating Asian-American accomplishments and thoughtfully reflecting on the challenges that Asian-Americans, including notable actors, writers, and politicians, have encountered. These challenges continue even now, as demonstrated by the continued suspicion of Muslim and Sikh Asian-Americans and the escalation of anti-Asian hate crimes during COVID-19. While some listeners may miss the maps, illustrations, and other visual elements found in the print version, all will be moved by this illuminating and authentically told history.
