The Second Generation Podcast

By Imran Yussuff and Janac Meenachisundaram
A podcast about perspectives, stories and challenges of growing up as the children of immigrants in North America.

We discuss culture, religion, identity, health, relationships, career and any other impactful moments in the life of our guests. Each episode showcases the unique differences between cultures but also shows that people of seemingly disparate cultures, tend to have more shared challenges and common experiences than one would initially think.

Join your hosts Imran Yussuff and Janac Meenachisundaram, as they bring to light the relatable stories of second-generation Canadians.
