Welcome to Episode 28! Korean Americans are more than K-pop, Korean BBQ, and K-dramas. The Korean diaspora has been gaining notice because of many of the things happening both in South Korea and here in the U.S. But when did Koreans begin coming to the U.S.? What caused them to immigrate? In this episode, Gen and Ted talk over the different waves of immigration that make up the Korean American population. We also take time to discuss and react to a few recent surveys and reports from, The Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism, and the STAATUS Index Report by Leading Asian Americans to Unite for Change (LAAUNCH).
