First ever Asian-American podcasters group forms in New York City

PRESS RELEASE — February 15, 2019 · 1.2 minutes to read

New York NY, USA—A new podcasters group for Asian-American creatives, producers, hosts and editors is now open for membership, officials said.

The Asian-American Podcasters (AAP) group, with a base in New York City, has just been formed this month, founder Lee Uehara confirmed.

“It’s exciting to be able to carve out a space in the podcasting landscape for those who identify as Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders,” Uehara said. “With this podcasting explosion, we want to be able to come together and offer support and resources to Asian- Americans – even if they’re currently living outside of the United States.”

The AAP was created earlier this month, in February, after noticing that one did not previously exist, Uehara said. “You don’t realize what you’re missing until you find it. In this case, once folks found out about it, they’ve shown sincere excitement at having joined. And, it doesn’t hurt that we like to talk about food from various Asian countries!” Uehara said.

Podcasters from countries around the world such as France, Singapore and Vietnam have been joining, co-founder Andrew Wang said. “Our members represent all levels of podcasting: from aspiring show-runners who are planning to launch to those with many years of experience at critically-acclaimed shows. I’m excited to build a hub where Asian-American podcasters can support one another, share and collaborate to amplify their voices and podcasts.”

Membership is free: Email: or call at (212) 655-9840. Website: On social media, folks can reach out at @aapodcasters on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
