Welcome to breaking artificial walls!
White Label American

White Label American

White Label American is a nourishing and evolving show that embraces diversity in humanity via origin stories from mostly immigrants. This show began with Raphael (the host and founder), speaking to fellow immigrants living in New York City, then expanded to speaking to immigrants all throughout the US, and even today, occasionally speaking to immigrants worldwide. Raphael really enjoys getting the opportunity to meet, listen to, and learn from other immigrants. The main purpose of this show is to break down artificial walls that prevent us from realizing that we are all more similar and connected than we really think.
