I have always wondered what it would've been like to grow up in multicultural, urban hubs like NYC or SF. I lived in South Carolina for 10 years.
Hey New York, Hyphen will be on the radio today from 7 to 9 pm. We'll be on the Asia Pacific Forum, a progressive Asian American radio show which is broadcast on WBAI 99.5 FM, a Pacifica station. Guests on the show include our Todd Inoue, music writer and editor extraordinaire; Kai Ma, the reporter who wrote about (and experienced first hand) Korean booking clubs in our most recent issue; Lisa Katayama, who wrote about transgender issue and immigration in our Body Issue (after that we prompty snagged her as an editor), and a few other Hyphen folks. Maybe me. Maybe erin, our publisher. (We're going to flip a coin for it). The show will be hosted by Ursula Liang, who contributes to both Asia Pacific Forum and to Hyphen, where she's our sports editor.
