Ep.31: You Belong Here - A Conversation with Alex Kim

If you look at the outdoor industry, you usually see one type of person - white men. Alex Kim has set out to change that.

如果我们仔细反观最近大火的户外产业,作为消费者,我们经常会看到同种类型的模特占据了这个产业的广告牌——白人男性。本期火花电台采访的主人公Alex Kim励志改变这样的业态。

Alex Kim是生长在美国马里兰州的第一代美籍韩裔。如今,他居住在蒙大拿州米苏拉,并且成立了户外组织Here Montana。Here Montana致力于服务有色人种,让更多种族,更多背景的人有机会体验和接触大自然,了解并享受属于所有人的户外资源。Here Montana 的户外体验活动主要围绕四个架构:娱乐性、社群性、教育性、参与性。

The Spark Podcast
The Spark is a podcast that explores what it means to traverse cultures and share stories that intersect Chinese and American culture to interrupt barriers and create connections. The Spark is a cultural haven - A space held by a friendship between two women from two different countries, meeting at the point where their cultures, identities and stories intersect. Their conversations are grounded in transparency as they move beyond previous perceptions and ideas of the other to form deep connections as human beings first. 这是一个由两个来自不同文化背景的女生创造的广播平台。Amy Tianyi Zhao (微博:赵枣儿Amy)虽然来自中国,但她的教育背景和生活履历让她与西方文化产生了强烈的共鸣。Megan Dowaliby 虽然来自美国,但来自中国的老公让她对中国产生了浓厚的兴趣。两个完全不同的女生在一张传统中国餐桌上相遇。语言的交流引发了思想的碰撞。在那次晚餐两年后的今天,火花电台诞生。我们相信,一个人的国籍,以及其居住地并不能代表TA的文化身份。在一个全球化的时代,我们在不同文化中看到自己的影子,每个人都可能是很多文化交流和互动的产物。我们希望通过她们的对话和讨论,加深人们对“跨文化”身份的认同,赋予人们了解世界的激情和力量,最终达到促进世界,尤其是中美两国互相理解的进程。
