In today's episode, Alina interviews Beenish Mannan, aka Alina's mom! Beenish worked in Pocatello, Idaho City Council for 1-2 years. Alina and her mom tackle what it is like being an Asian (and Muslim) politician in a conservative town, her experience working on the city council, which was racially homogenous, as well as what it is like to face backlash as a WOC in politics, and also talk about how Asian women are told to not seek out careers, and rather care for their families, which is something councilwoman Mannan had experienced.
