UpZones #43: Yenvy Pham | Cascadia Underground
Restaurateur Yenvy Pham brings Ian the best sweetbread ever baked or eaten and between bites, the two talk about the managed uplift of Little Saigon as the city changes around it, and sometimes changes it, too. Yenvy, whose parents founder Pho Bac after coming to Seattle as Vietnam War refugees, describes how nightlife can "activate" the community, making it safer and prosperous, even though fixed community investment can be difficult for refugees and other immigrant communities.
