On episode 6, Joshua Goldbard interviews Tony Nguyen, the founder of the American Young Leader Exchange (AYLX), an organization that provides free cultural exchange experiences for high school students. Through his work with AYLX, Tony thinks deeply about how information silos are created and how they can be deconstructed through cultural exchange. Tony is also a US Army veteran, and Josh picks his brain about what privacy looks like in the Army. Tony also shares a deeply personal story about how his family escaped from Saigon on a boat, and ruminates on the similarities between that experience and the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
