Millennial children of immigrants reflect on their intangible heritage and nested cultures. Melissa & Kelly share stories, anecdotes, and historical information about growing up as first generation American millennials in the city with the nation's most dense Portuguese population.
Melissa & Kelly have a sarcastic and humorous delivery even when handling the most sacred of topics. In their 30s, they realized they had work to do to ‘unlearn’ ideas of guilt, fear, shame, and social norms influenced by ethnicity, religion, and media. Their podcast It's Called Culture (a Folk and Fad production) will continuously explore and challenge these ideas.
