They also touch on current local news stories including Covid-19 vaccine distribution, the start of new sports seasons in the PNW and local 2021 elections. CW: the main story of today’s pod addresses the recent exponential rise in anti-Asian hate and racism, and what the guys’ personal thoughts on the situation are. Below are resources to better inform you on what to do when faced with a hate crime, how to connect with the Filipino community for help and fundraising platforms to help victims and families of AAPI hate crimes across the nation.
For today’s interview, we spoke with current University of Washington masters student and Washington State University alumni Jared Garalde! Born and raised in Auburn, Washington, Jared was actively involved in the Filipino community in Pullman during college including FASA, Lambda Phi Epsilon International Fraternity, Inc., and his beloved Carson College. We talked about everything from how he has dealt with the pandemic over the past year to a plethora of personal shout-outs you won’t want to miss. Welcome to the pod!
