EP 00 | The Intro:

Disrupting the Filipinx Status Quo

Despite recording this back in July, so much of what we start to delve into in these first conversations still reign true. Community, empowerment, connection, stumbling through our parent's native tongue, and comparing each of our family's Tita Baby - we're here to talk about it all.

EP 01 | Donnel Garcia Barroso

Donnel Garcia Barroso is a Vancouver-based photographer and writer, most recently known for his work with photography-based publication, Street Dreams Magazine, and Canadian streetwear boutique, Livestock. We ask him about how he seems to have found every Filipinx in the city, and dive into the scarcity complex, being mentors with/for your peers, AI (the player), all of our shared love for bipstek, and realizing on-air that he isn't from Surrey after all.
