Nevada Public Radio debuts Exit Spring Mountain, a 10-episode podcast about Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in Southern Nevada.

The podcast will explore how history, politics, and economics shape the AAPI community while sharing stories by and for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

Episode 3 focuses on the Asian migration to the Americas. It started when small groups of Filipino sailors on Spanish ships settled in Central America in the 1500s.

The production team includes Executive Producer Sonja Cho Swanson; host Lorraine Blanco Moss; academic research consultant Mark Padoongpatt; research assistant Nessa Concepcion; sound editing, mixing, and mastering, Regina Revazova; News Director Joe Schoenmann.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
