Talking Taiwan proudly announces that we are producing the podcast Crushing the Myth, an Asian American speaker series that aims to dispel the “model minority” label of Asia America today.

Crushing the Myth is an engaging Ted-Talk-like series where Asian American creators, entrepreneurs, influencers, and thought leaders each give a 10-minute talk “on stage” (and now during the pandemic over Zoom), by sharing the Asian American perspective while featuring stories that make people listen, learn, and get inspired.

The podcast is currently on several of the most popular platforms including Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, RadioPublic, and Overcast.
