Hosted ByKim Vu

From the Westbank to New Orleans East, there is a vibrant community of over 20,000 Vietnamese New Orleanians. Once a week host Kim Vu invites a guest to chat about Vietnamese etiquette, ancient proverbs, Vietnamese events in New Orleans, and Vietnamese food. A Vietnamese-American recently arrived from California, Kim combines her own discovery of the local Vietnamese community with her deep familiarity and love of Vietnamese life and customs. Kim and guests weave a tapestry of fun and pho, Hanoi and poboy, as VietNola explores the world of Vietnamese New Orleanians, here and in Vietnam.

When Tom met Mai – VietNOLA – It’s New Orleans

Husband and wife Tom Lasher and Dr. Mai Do met in a coffeehouse on Magazine Street when he was a consultant working on post-disaster Katrina and she took a job as a professor at Tulane instead of returning home to Vietnam. The rest is bi-racial, bi-national history.
