The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada is proud to announce the launch this week of a new podcast series on East Asia’s millennials by post-graduate research fellows Justin Kwan and Linda Qian. The Youth Element is an eight-part series that explores questions of culture, politics, economics, and national defense – all through the narrated stories of youth and their everyday realities, challenges, and motivations living as citizens in East Asia. Co-hosts Kwan and Qian travelled across five cities in East Asia: Shanghai, Taipei, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Seoul, to listen to the voices of millennials and learn more about contemporary East Asia through their personal views and the stories of their own lives. The first episode will be released September 14. Click here to listen to the trailer for The Youth Element, and to learn more about the project.
