The Happy Hour Newscast

Happy spring to all! This episode hosts Malakai and shaylyn highlight organizations who help assist and create positive change for AAPI communities. We want everyone to know what they can do to help #StopAAPIHate, whether that’s volunteering or donating or if you need resources yourself. This week our hosts are here to share some happy stories you may have missed and provide some positive perspective on the biggest headlines of the week, including vaccine updates, Fairyland re-opening and something cool about cow burps. 


And a craft cocktail that’s the perfect fresh and verdant way to celebrate spring! Rate and review if you want a cocktail made in your honor.
