In the fourth episode of We Belong Podcast, we meet Linh-Lan Dao, a TV Journalist for France Info. She works at the fact-checking TV program ‘Vrai ou Fake’ and uses arts to explain the news on the Youtube channel Draw my news.

Following a controversial broadcast by two French humorists, Kev Adams and Gad Elmaleh, Linh denounced prejudice and racism against Asians in a video that reached 2.5 million views. She is committed to standing up to anti-Asian racism and has been particularly vocal since the outbreak of the coronavirus, shedding the light on anti-Asian discriminations, verifying news and tweeting with #Imnotavirus.

In our conversation with Linh-Lan, we discussed her passion for journalism and drawing. We also talked about the importance of giving a voice to Asian communities living in France and their representation in the media.
