Mixed Podcast

Mixed, based on Nicole Zelniker’s book of the same name, is a series done by The Nasiona Podcast about race and mixed-race families. She was featured in two podcast episodes before the series premiered, one in which she was interviewed about her book and another in which she and Julián Esteban Torres-Lopez interviewed Leah Whetten-Goldstein, a transracial adoptee.

Topics include what it means to be mixed-race, mixed-race families, mixed-race relationships, passing as white, the intersections of race and disability, editing and writing books about being mixed and being a mixed-race writer, parenting, and education. Zelniker also participated in a roundtable discussion after the episodes were released with Torres-Lopez and Aïcha Martine Thiam.
