Episode description

   

Claudia Kishi is an Asian American literary icon that went beyond being a fun, artistic, and stylish character. She became an inspiration and point of connection for a ton of young Asian Americans. We explore her influence on a generation of Asian American readers.

Yumi Sakugawa’s comic essay and zine, “Claudia Kishi: My Asian-American Female Role Model of the 90s” can be found on her website yumisakugawa.com.

Angry Asian Man’s series of remixed and retitled Baby-Sitters Club book covers can be found at Angryasianman.com.

My friend Sue Ding is working on a documentary about Claudia Kishi. You can find out more about the project at Claudiakishi.club.
