Brent, Jake, and Marty are joined in studio this week by Niken and Allan Carpenter for a long-form interview!

Niken tolerates our shenanigans long enough to relate some great stories:
- Growing up in Indonesia and what brought her to the States? (Allan is very big in Detroit!)
- She reveals Allan's biggest weakness: Cheese. (It's really a weakness of everyone's, honestly.)
- Niken was a judge in Indonesia
- Allan listens to our show at 3 AM before he goes to work

Niken has also started a foreign language podcast called "Hakim Cilik" . It's a legal podcast, meant for people in Indonesia that will be in the language Bahasa Indonesia and a link can be found below! (Hakim Cilik means "little judge")

On a serious note, Niken talks of multicultural bridge-building, and how she networked in Erie after she arrived. She started with Mayor Schember as Executive Assistant and Refugee & Immigrant Liaison, but has moved away from the Executive Assistant position to focus on our newest residents.

Niken addresses some of her interactions with xenophobia and out-and-out racism, even while interacting with the public in City Hall.

There's our usual banter, and Allan is, quite literally, our #1 fan so we delve into our tangents about food, politics, religion, and everything under the sun.
