Hey y'all - this is our most personal and most vulnerable episode yet. We address going off-air for over a month with the outcome of one of our main hosts departing from the show. To help us navigate these conversations, this week's hosts RJ Galea and Byron Cadano have joined the show and taken the lead to interview Archie and Chia on what went down during the Filipino Fridays fallout.
As we all know, family feuds in the Filipino culture is nothing new. We discuss conflict between family members and how to solve those issues. We discuss at length on how Filipino family grudges are legendary and how important it is to reconcile and set aside differences before it's too late. We talk about how Filipino pride becomes counterproductive in relationships and communication. How many times have we heard of relatives never seeing eye to eye, never to speak again? The hosts also shared their experiences on how to take the initial steps in mending family feuds. We hope to learn through this experience together as an episode of reflection, growth and shift in a new direction.
With that said, we are delighted to share that we are going back to regular programming with episodes released every Friday with new voices coming on the show. The new reformatting of Filipino Fridays will include a variety of Filipino voices with fresh takes on Filipino culture. We would like to especially thank this community for continuing to support the show - it is because of you that we are able to produce more Filipino stories that matter. Especially with Filipino Heritage Month in Canada in June, we have an exciting line up of guests featured each week.
Maraming, maraming salamat sa pagmamahal at suporta (Thank you, thank you so much for the love and support)
