Elaine Dolalas talks with Pamela Santos and Cheryl Green about podcasting, filmmaking and writing

Hosts Pamela Santos and Cheryl Green are talking with guest Elaine Dolalas, writer behind Oblivious Nerd Girl Hood Chronicles and co-host of This Filipino American Life.  Elaine is a Historic Filipinotown-based writer, podcaster, and independent curator. She curates Color Your Troubles Away, an arts event that offers stress relief, healing, and meditation through coloring. Elaine is happily trying to figure out the secret of life through writing, volunteering, and most importantly avoiding cleaning her room, much to her husband TFAL producer Mike’s chagrin. 

We'll also have a short segment of Feminist Headlines with guest Aleris Villegas from GABRIELA PDX talking about an upcoming event. On May 1st the JustPeacePH "PEace Tour" is stopping in Portland to bring awareness of  the Peace Talks happening between the Philippine Government and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP). Indigienous Lumad leaders and human rights advocates that survived state-sponsored violence and witnessed killings in their communities are talking in person how the advance of these talks would be crucial in addressing the roots of the killings in the country. More information can be foiu

And we'll be introducing a new segment where we give "roses" to those we think deserve special acknowledgement this week.
