About Brown People We Know
Brown People We Know is an interview show exploring non-traditional paths and shared experiences within the South Asian American diaspora. Through our guests, we’ll learn how this community combines elements of South Asian and American cultures, everything from Shah Rukh Khan to Hot Dogs, creating a unique “third culture.” Our end goal is to shatter stereotypes about South Asians in America and to reduce social pressure from within the community to take a certain path.
