About This List

Cultural perspectives, history, language, and more.
  1. Thinking back to our history classes growing up, we had one question: Where the ladies at? Enter, Encyclopedia Womannica. In just 5 minutes a day, learn about different incredible women from throughout history. In Wonder Media Network’s brand new podcast, we’re telling the stories of women you may or may not know -- but definitely should.
  2. Learning languages is often a difficult but fascinating journey. In these interviews we unfold a language story of one of our international guests.
  3. This podcast looks at the current political situation in Latin America and tries to make sense of it.
  4. The Third Culture is what emerges at the intersection between your culture of origin, and the other cultures by which you’ve been shaped. Beyond Asian is a place for stories of global nomads with Asian roots, brought up in diversity. Together, we explore the interplay of our pasts with our presents, and our relationships with the multiple cultures we move in. These are more than conversations about Asian identity - they’re portraits of whole people - what keeps them up at night, what their hearts long for, and the impact they hope to have on their communities. I’m your host, Sen Zhan, a Third Culture Kid born in China, raised in Canada, and currently based in Berlin. This series is a first step towards making peace with my own Asian background, and it’s my hope that other Third Culture Asians will hear themselves reflected in our stories. New episodes on Sundays, every 2 weeks.

  8. Celebrating books as cultural messengers and agents of change as they open our hearts and minds to new worlds. Listen to brief commentary and readings (from fiction, non-fiction, YA, middle grade, and poetry). New episodes released once a month (fourth Thursday of each month).
  9. Black Chick Lit is a bi-monthly podcast that talks books by and about black women.
  10. Books & Boba is a book club dedicated to books written by Asian and Asian American authors. We cover a wide range of genres including contemporary, historical fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, YA, nonfiction, thrillers, graphic novels, and memoirs.
  11. In August of 1619, a ship carrying more than 20 enslaved Africans arrived in the English colony of Virginia. America was not yet America, but this was the moment it began. No aspect of the country that would be formed here has been untouched by the 250 years of slavery that followed. On the 400th anniversary of this fateful moment, it is time to tell the story. “1619” is a New York Times audio series hosted by Nikole Hannah-Jones. You can find more information about it at nytimes.com/1619podcast.
