Generation Mixed

Generation Mixed

In the 2010 Census multiracial people were counted at 9 million; in 2020 it exploded to 33.8 million a 276% increase. Generation Mixed Podcast was created as an outlet for these voices to be heard, one story at a time. Weekly guests will give you glimpses of their lives, about how they navigate through a world that is not always accepting. There will be similarities, and differences. Each story will weave a thread that, combined with other stories, will create a beautiful colorful tapestry that represents what it means to be multiracial in America. Let's come together, tune in, and start creating a community. Hosted by Jolie, or Jolie Frijole when the whim hits her, she will bring these stories to you in a Q&A format by guests from different backgrounds and life experiences. She begins the first podcast about herself, and each week, will bring a new guest or guests to share their stories. Make sure to SUBSCRIBE to Generation Mixed & FOLLOW ME at JMarc Media Network at:
