I found this episode refreshing in its candour. In general, I appreciate that Invisibilia is unapologetically nuanced and its storytellers are brave enough to turn the gaze inward. I can count on it for that, which is reassuring in divided times.

@fiercefab Holy moly. One of the most interesting podcasts I've listened to in terms of emotional ups and downs (the first part was so chilling & sad for me to hear - yet it ended on a happy note), relatability & shock (not something you'd randomly think of). Very thought-provoking - thank you for the echo! Will be sharing with friends. Do you read Elaine Liu's column? She writes heavily on the changing dynamics of interracial dating for asians. @mm - recommending!

@aliceko I have not read that column! I’ll give it a try. It was actually a column that got me thinking more critically about dating and preferences in the first place. It was called “decolonize your heart” but I can’t seem to find it online anymore.

@aliceko No, but I’ll read this too! The one I read was specifically from a Latinx perspective, and it really hit home.
