ShoPowSho Episode 001: Comedian, Edwin San Juan

Psst. Psst. Hoy! Mga Kababayan! Hello and welcome everyone to The Nerds of Color‘s newest audio/video podcast, ShoPowSho! My name is Kuya P AKA Patrick Michael Strange and I am honored to have The Nerds of Color be the home of my new show, ShoPowSho, wherein, we will be exploring my people / my kabayan from the Philippines!

Filipino Americans, or FilAms, make up the second largest Asian ethnic group AND second largest immigrant group in the U.S. And in some regions, one of every four Filipinos work in the healthcare field, many of which were on the frontlines against COVID-19. At some point, it is likely that someone of Filipino descent has impacted a part of your life.

ShoPowSho will explore Filipino and Filipino American history and culture along with spotlighting and featuring Filipinos throughout various fields of industry to help showcase the amazing contributions they have provided to our world. Please join me and my wonderful co-hosts, or as I like to affectionately call them, “The Amazing Ates”, Kataphorric and Viva Valentina!
