It's a holiday season for many cultures throughout the world which is why MixdGen wanted to bring our listeners an episode that talks about food, culture, and storytelling with our our mixd brothers, The Hungry Wons (www.hungrywons.com)The Hungry Wons are two brothers, Andrew and Jona Won who share a passion for food and storytelling in large part because of their family history as Chinese-Peruvian-Colombians. Their paternal grandparents include Jaime Won, born in 1915 in Guangzhou and Leonor Koosau, born in 1927 in Peru but orphaned as a baby and sent to Macau. They bothe emigrated to Peru in 1948  seeking opportunity and a better life and shared an insatiable passion for food, cooking and making memories around the dinner table. They never got a chance to meet their maternal grandfather but their maternal grandmother, Aura Saavedra, was born in 1928 in Bogota, Colombia. She also shared a passion for hearty soups and stews especially Colombian style “sancocho” soup. That legacy lives on with The Hungry Wons as they  bring people together and experiment with new Asian Latino recipes. FUN FACT: It is estimated that up to 20% of Peru’s population today (6 million people) have Chinese ancestry. The first documented Chinese immigrants arrived in Peru in 1849 and were brought over to labor in coastal sugar plantations and mines, to construct rail roads, and to extract guano for fertilizer. “Chifa” cuisine thus emerged as a cross-pollination of Chinese and Peruvian cultures. Thank you for listening and sharing our stories with the world.Please enjoy this podcast, rate, and subscribe.Yours Truly,- The MixdGen Team -Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/mixdgen)

What we love about this episode is that co-host of MixdGen Paul Clifton (@pauljayclif) and his sister Monica Clifton (@mocliff08) who share a special sibling bond talk about their experience growing up in Ogden, Utah. We also hear about how Monica feels within her own family as the recent wave of racial justice unfolds and family members. What does it mean when your racial background as a mixed person is disregarded by another side of your family? When half of your family may not fully understand what it's like to walk in your shoes? Thank you Monica Clifton for sharing your story with us in such a transparent manner! We hope all our listeners enjoy this episode of Season 2/Episode 2 of The MixdGen Podcast!***SPECIAL NOTICE: We are currently looking for sponsors that align with our values and vision.  Contact us at mixdgen@gmail.com if you are interested.***Please enjoy this podcast, rate, and subscribe.Yours Truly,- The MixdGen Team -#becausetheworldismixingSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/mixdgen)

#mamason - Black | Mexican | Bolivian: Marisela and Alex (@mari_maudi)“I think as parents sometimes we don’t even want to have those conversations, right? Like, I know I’ve had those moments where I’m like, okay I have to talk about this you know. I have to make sure things are good and how do I start that conversation? But no matter what you have to get yourself to do it because no one else is going to do it for you." - Marisela, MIXD mama“We still remember our ethnicity, we still remember who we are, but we still remember that we are not alone and we can be friends with anybody who accepts us with who we are." - Alex, MIXD son, 12 years oldMama Marisela has been on the search for conversations and spaces for MIXD families for years.
