Spend an hour adventuring through the inner workings of the Chinatown International District (CID), one of Seattle’s only historic ethnic enclaves. In collaboration with our friends at KUOW’s Soundside, we created an audio postcard exploring what makes this place tick: the everyday people, places, and things who keep this place a vibrant home. Listen to the full special here.

🌱 Although small, this neighborhood brims with life.

🗞 Hear a longtime Ethiopian neighbor share what the CID means to her. 

♲ Go inside a hyperlocal composting effort led by the next generation of environmental justice leaders. 

🎷 Learn about the forgotten jazz history of 12th and Jackson in Little Saigon. 

👪 Listen to how three sisters keep their Cambodian legacy business thriving despite the setbacks. 

🏓 And stay for a summer afternoon in Hing Hay Park, where we speak with its wide-ranging cast of characters in the heart of the neighborhood.

Made for you, with love, from the CID. 💛
