The Mash-Up Americans is your guide to the hyphen-America world we all live in. Amy S. Choi and Rebecca Lehrer talk culture, identity, race and what makes us who we are. Get to know yourself, America.

We are celebrating and challenging the raucous, colorful, complicated country we live in by asking all the important, awkward questions: What does it mean to be an immigrant in America? What cultural baggage do we bring to sex and relationships? Why is Korean skincare so popular? When does something get upgraded from the ethnic aisle? Amy and Rebecca, first-generation Americans themselves, talk to Mash-Up luminaries such as Randall Park and Maz Jobrani, as well as experts, listeners, and up-and-comers, to dive into all of the complexity we face as people who straddle multiple cultures and identities.

Live Show from Chicago! We were with a sold out crowd in Chicago talking food and laughing our faces off, as a part of WBEZ's Podcast Passport Series. You'll hear our convo with two guest chefs - Jennifer Kim and Diana Davila - for an interview about using their midwestern roots to explore the foods their parents shared with them. You'll also hear a fantastic set from the hilarious comic Alex Kumin on everything from body hair to the complexities of the American healthcare system. Thanks to WBEZ's Podcast Passport Series and Sleeping Village for making this night happen.
