Densho – The new Densho podcast, Campu, tells the story of Japanese American incarceration like you’ve never heard it before. Brother-sister duo Noah and Hana Maruyama weave together the voices of survivors to spin narratives out of the seemingly mundane things that gave shape to the incarceration experience: rocks, fences, food, paper. Follow along as they move far beyond the standard Japanese American incarceration 101 and into more intimate and lesser-known corners of this history. Listen or subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts. Support for Campu comes from the Atsuhiko and Ina Goodwin Tateuchi Foundation.
