About Us

The Alien Chronicles is a weekly podcast that focuses on people's’ journeys to America, specifically in NY and its surrounding areas. Every week the podcast invites people who are unique in their own right, global citizens of sorts. People who have come to call America home, whether from Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America; who carry the legacy of their ancestors while being as American as can be. Guests talk food, fashion, cultural norms, politics etc. in the context of different cultures and ethnicities. The goal of this podcast is to create empathy for “the other” through relatable narratives

The Host

Saadia Khan

Hi! I am Saadia Khan and I am an immigrant who is fascinated by different cultures. I am also an intersectional feminist who calls America home. In the current climate of polarization and divisiveness, I decided to launch a podcast that focuses on celebrating representation and inclusion in America. What qualifies me to do this Podcast? An MBA, masters in Human Rights and my own experiences as an immigrant and a human rights activist exploring intersectionality between different cultures, racial and ethnic backgrounds.
