Hi! I'm Linda - An ABC(ish) writer/illustrator currently based in NYC.
This podcast is an extension of the Panda Cub Stories webcomic, where I'm documenting my own journey of (re)learning Chinese language and reconnecting with my family's heritage. Here, I'll be musing on what I've learned about Chinese language, culture, folklore, and/or festivals.
While I LOVE making the webcomics, there's a lot of content I can't fit into those few panels... so I thought I'd relaunch this podcast to share the extra goodies with you!
PODCAST (LANGUAGE) FORMAT:
I'll be switching back and forth from English to Mandarin (with maybe a bit of Sichuanese thrown in). This new podcast format will be more conversational, and less formal, than the previous episodes! But the content will mostly revolve around Chinese language and culture... stuff I find interesting (and that you may find interesting too!).
P.S. I've been told I have a nice soothing voice, so if you you AREN'T interested in Chinese culture but DO have insomnia, maybe this podcast is also for you ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
P.P.S. Podcast origins:
Panda Cub Stories started as stories told bilingually in Mandarin Chinese and English. Episodes prior to 2020 are mostly stories adapted from, or inspired by, Chinese myths, legends and folklore!
