Yang-May Ooi’s acclaimed solo theatre show Bound Feet Blues was inspired by the oral stories told in her family, passed down through the generations. In this podcast, we have a unique opportunity to go back in time and hear her grandfather telling the story of their family – and how the act of recording this interview at the age of 13, laid the foundation for Yang-May’ s creative career as a writer and podcaster.
