Recovering Filipino

About the Show

Recovering Filipino is an engaging and funny celebration of life, family, and Filipino culture through the eyes and escapades of host Jim Agapito. Growing up, Jim saw himself as the black sheep in his family. Years later, his grandma (or lola) called him a 'bad Filipino.’  Now Jim, a filmmaker, a punk rock singer and boxer is on a recovery mission. He’s on a mission to learn more about his culture and what makes Filipinos everywhere tick. Jim's quest takes him around the world (virtually) to talk to experts, Filipino celebrities, a long-lost cousin, and the most avowed Filipino in his life: his mom Yolanda. You’ll relate no matter where your family comes from.
