Jan Yanehiro defied familial pressures to follow her dream.
In this podcast, Jan traces her story back to Hawaii, where she grew up a third-generation Japanese-American. She braved upsetting her parents to go to college in California, and after a short stint as a flight attendant following graduation, she came to San Francisco and got a job at a local radio station.
We recorded this podcast at the Urban Knights Studio in South of Market in March 2020.
