Crossing East is a documentary series for public radio produced by Dmae Roberts and MediaRites and is hosted by George Takei (from Star Trek fame) and Margaret Cho, the sometimes controversial stand-up comedian. Covering Asian immigration from pre-nationhood to post-911, the series of eight one-hour documentaries delves into the many waves of Asian immigration into the United States and their impact on the making of America. The series also investigates the global implications of Asia-America immigration. The program's distribution partner is Public Radio International. This topic had never before been the focus of a series produced for public radio.
In 2007, the program was honored by winning a George Peabody Award.
