Description: Welcome to Mixed Up, a podcast for mixed race people everywhere and for anyone looking into a deeper insight on race and identity. Hosted by sustainability consultant and creative director Emma Slade Edmondson, and Nicole Ocran, writer and co-founder of The Creator Union.

The show is about straddling two worlds and multiple identities. Now more than ever, it feels like people of mixed heritage are seeking out their space to talk about their lived experiences. But despite searching, we could find very little to relate to. We decided to make something we would have appreciated hearing.

Description: This five-part miniseries explores what happens when your parents come from two different countries, cultures, or races. Host Alex Laughlin shares her own stories and interviews multiracial people about what their racial identities mean to them. Five episodes, five themes and a whole bunch of stories to make you think about what it means to be an American.

The Halfie Project

Description: Becky White and Cedric Stout deep dive into Korean history, culture and the mixed race experience. They share the half-Korean experiences with guests from all over the world. Find more at or @thehalfieproject

Description: Mixed Like Me is a podcast hosted by Geona Childress, a 24 year old African American girl from Denver, Colorado. Mixed Like Me is a safe place where Geona and her guests share their stories and discuss their experiences growing up mixed race in America. If you ever felt like you were too white for the black kids and too black for the white kids, then this is the podcast for you! Follow along in reminding yourself of the beautiful brown skinned girl you are and have always been.

Description: Mixed Kid Chronicles is a podcast about those who check the “other” box. Join your host, Katie, as she explores identity, race, and popular culture. New episodes air every other week alternating between solo musings and conversations with friends.

What is Loving Day?

"On June 12, 1967, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Mildred and Richard Loving in the historic Loving v. Virginia case. The ruling effectively legalized interracial marriage in the United States, overturning all so-called anti-miscegenation laws. Anti-miscegenation laws originating in Virginia in the early 1700s as a means of upholding white supremacy.

By making interracial marital unions illegal, the state was effectively reinforcing racial divides between white and non-white people. Although interracial marriage was illegal, though, white rape of Black and Brown people was not — for this reason, anti-miscegenation laws helped to reinforce de facto policies of race-based sexual violence. Learn more about the racist history of anti-miscegenation laws."

How is Loving Day celebrated?

"A global network of Loving Day celebrations commemorate the anniversary of the Loving decision every year on or around June 12th. We host the Loving Day Flagship Celebration in New York City. We coordinate with multiethnic community groups to promote their Loving Day Celebrations all over the United States. We also encourage people to host their own celebrations for friends and family. These celebrations are diverse in terms of both content and location, but we tie them together though our event listings on Loving Day Celebrations are shared among friends and passed down through families to establish a new multicultural tradition."
