Amidst the recent resurgence in anti-Asian violence during the COVID-19 pandemic, what does the future hold for Chinatown communities across the country? While phrases like “racism is a virus” or “hate is a virus” have gained popularity over the course of the pandemic, VIRAL LOVE hopes to make room for joy by highlighting stories of community, resilience, and peace building in Oakland, Houston, Los Angeles, and New York City.
Premieres Wednesday, September 29. New episodes released every Wednesday.
Written, recorded, and produced by Sabrina Lin. Edited by Brendon Lin and Sabrina Lin. Theme music composed and performed by Mark Fish.
