The Making Of: The Second Gen with Karina Zapata


In this episode, we take a look back on The Second Gen series produced by Karina Zapata, the CPI’s first Podcaster-in-Residence.

The Second Gen offers a glimpse into the experiences faced by the children of immigrants. The episodes explore different topics that affect first-generation Canadians — like discussions on being the eldest child to the sometimes polarizing experiences in the LGBTQ2S+ community. As a daughter of immigrants herself, Karina brings her background and experience to each part of the series.

Host Sam Jolin talks to Karina about the series, what inspired it, and how it all came together.
