extraordinary stories of ordinary people
Host: Bessie Du
异乡人 (Yi Xiang Ren) is a bilingual Podcast that brings you stories of immigrants, by immigrants - for anyone who finds resonance and inspiration.
More than 50 million Chinese are currently living overseas, in every corner of the world, each with a story of their own. Chinese immigrants are traditionally known for their grit and perseverance, but the younger generation are also tech savvy and globally connected. Our stories reflect both intercultural experiences and trans-generational perspectives. They are personal and emotional, as well as rational and analytical.
Enjoy the stories shared by those who left their birthplaces and built homes in faraway places, stories of their life journeys — their joys and losses, their hopes and aspirations. These stories are about identity, culture, race, perspectives, and above all, HUMANITY and COMPASSION!
