Julie Eng in the Asian panel (ep 78) of Shezam and Sleightly Sketchy (Where are you from?)

Listen to episode 78 of Shezam where Kayla Drescher hosts a panel who talk about their experiences being performers of Asian descent.  Topics include cultural appropriation, micro-aggressions, and the use of "exotic" props.  The panelists who admirably navigate these complex and nuanced topics are:  Felice Ling, Makoto Halverson, Ed Kwon, Courtney Pong, and Julie Eng.

As the third generation in my family to be born in Canada, we're very familiar with the conversation that begins with the question, "Where are you from?"

Sleightly Sketchy: Where are you from?
