This is a podcast by Tony Nagatani, Punya Krishnappa, and Kevin Xu, three former staffers of (a lot of) political campaigns and the Obama White House. And we just happen to be Asian-American.

We started the Model Majority Podcast as a First Amendment project to talk about politics, culture, and life through the lens of field organizers, grassroots activists, and Asian-Americans. It’s a voice that’s sorely lacking in our public discourse, especially considering that the Asian American and Pacific Islanders community is growing at a faster rate than any other comparable racial group. It’s a community that needs to be more heard and better understood. And we will try our best to help you with that.
