We’re Still Talking About “My Family’s Slave”

We’re Still Talking About “My Family’s Slave”

This week, we join the global conversation on The Atlantic‘s essay “My Family’s Slave,” in which Alex Tizon writes about Eudocia Tomas Pulido, who was his family’s katulong, or domestic servant, for 56 years. Why did Eudocia’s story hit such a raw nerve in the U.S. and the Philippines? Shereen and Gene talk to Vicente Rafael, a professor who has studied and written about the practice in his native Philippines. We also hear from Lydia Catina Amaya, a Filipina who was a katulong in the Philippines and the United States. And we talk to Melissa Tizon, the author’s widow. Eudocia Tomas Pulido lived in their home for the last 12 years of her life.

Listen here.
