about silver lining

a podcast by undergraduate students from Columbia University

Silver Lining is a podcast that offers nuanced conversations about East Asian societies in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We wanted to bring in the expertise of current Columbia graduate students from the East Asian Studies department - and other fields - to make the world of academia more accessible and less esoteric.

By hearing from experts about topics ranging from economic policy to popular culture, we hope to offer a candid exploration of ideas relating to East Asia and the pandemic. 


Few podcasts cover East Asian current affairs.

Now, more than ever, we believe it is imperative to listen, empathize, and find the silver lining.
