The Alien Chronicles is a weekly podcast that focuses on peoples’ journeys to America, specifically in NY and surrounding areas. Every week, the podcast will invite people who are unique in their own right, global citizens of sorts. People who have come to call America home, despite where they are from, who carry the legacy of their ancestors while being as American as can be. Guests will talk food, fashion, politics etc. in the context of different cultures and ethnicities. Our goal is to create empathy for “the other” through relatable narratives.

The Alien Chronicles
Raw, honest, poignant and entertaining ! Well done approach to bringing the voices of diverse backgrounds sharing many common experiences and emotions. A brilliant reminder that we are all more alike than different ! Keep up the good work Saadia!
Alien Chronicles is an amazing podcast focused on stories of immigrants in the United States. It gives a voice to diversity around us. Each week a guest is introduced who narrates stories of his or her culture and traditions, and the journey they undertook to become part of the fabric of American society. The podcast is beautifully done and something I look forward to each week.
Honest, heartwarming, engaging and insightful discussion on what it was like for a child to immigrate to America in the 90s!! Looking forward to hearing more!
