Pachinko is a story of Sunja that spans 4 generations – with the fourth generation (Solomon’s story) touching on the Asian-American experience – something Rox and Jules can relate to as Asians growing up in Australia. In this episode, super excited about the show and the book, Rox and Jules unpack what they think about Episode 1-3 so far – weaving in their personal experiences as Korean-Australians and Chinese Australians along the way. They dial in Jules’ grandma who lived through colonial Korea and invite a guest with a Korean-Japanese-Australian background on the show as well, because – well, why not!
Anyone else really invested in the show right now? Did you read the book too? How do your experiences relate to the show? Did you bawl your eyes out too T_T
No matter where you’re tuning in from, we hope you enjoy another chatty episode of the Asian Soup Podcast.
Come chill with us and get nourished!
Feel free to skip this episode if you haven’t read the book!
