Tsunagu/Connect - New Podcast Series

Tsunagu/Connect - New Podcast Series

Our friends at New Earth Theatre invite Japan Society members and friends to listen to their first-ever podcast Earth 2 Air dedicated to amplifying and championing stories of East and South East Asians in the UK.

In the first series Tsunagu/Connect they will talk with Japanese women and discover the stories that brought them to the UK, the reasons they have stayed and some of the challenges they have faced as immigrants in this country.

Hosted by Kumiko Mendl and Kazuko Hohki and edited by Chen with original music by Nicola Chang, this 7-part series will release new episodes every fortnight starting on Monday 13 September. All episodes will be available on most podcast platforms: Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Anchor, Google Podcasts, Overcast, Castbox and Breaker.

Tsunagu/Connect is supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund, Japan Society London, Museum of London, Shoreditch Town Hall. Made possible by the Cultural Recovery Fund and Goldsmiths, University of London.
