Get Your #hoochim tees!!!

#hoochim. We are 4 Hmong women who like to talk about things that matter such as…EVERYTHING!

Two years ago we started #hoochim because there weren’t enough spaces created for Hmong women’s voices, especially a space that would appreciate our worldviews. With the power of our cell phones, we recorded our first episode, Opium Baby, and the rest is history.

We are an independent listener supported podcast. A new way for you to support us is to purchase a #hoochim tee. All the proceeds will be used to sustain #hoochim and help us build a better podcast in the future.

Sincerely,
#hoochim ladies

013: Clan Politics

Episode #013 is a special recording. We know it has been a while since we recorded a full episode and we wanted to make sure, to our listeners, that we are still active and we are planning to record a new episode in August. This clip that you will hear is an unaired extended clip of episode 12 with guest Kong Pha. Here we talk about clan politics in the Hmong community and the reluctant embrace of Hmong women in these spaces.
