One day Nina Cataldo told me that she has been a long time listener of the podcast. I was floored as I had no idea and had been watching with growing interest at all the great things she has been doing. How funny, and I’m so thrilled to finally have Nina on the show! If you have younger kids who are half Japanese, then you will love hearing from Nina, who is the creator of the Hafu Ladies, an online community that supports people like herself. 

If you enjoyed this episode and it inspired you in some way, we’d love to hear about it and know your biggest takeaway.
