We’re getting a little bit loud and a little bit rowdy today with none other than DORA FUCKING KOLA herself! I’m a supporter of any fellow person of colour (especially Asians!) in the industry and I just knew I had to have her on the podcast at some point.
With roots in broadcasting and as an award-winning rock radio DJ, this girl was meant to be an entertainer. The amount of energy and passion she has not only for music and dancing not only shows on-stage, but is also so apparent in her interview here on the pod. But it’s not all about the glitz and glam. Dora opens up about how she was bullied as a kid, slut-shamed in high school, experienced online harassment from her former colleagues when working in Alberta and the racism she’s felt on stage as an Asian dancer. She spills a LOT on this episode and isn’t afraid to throw shade at her haters. Learn more about how music has helped guide her way through life and how it has shaped and changed her as an entertainer.
