-David, Raffi, and Armen
We are David Mahdasian, Raffi Mahdasian, and Armen Saryan, three guys who grew up together in a small Armenian community in southeastern Wisconsin. Two of us, David and Raffi, were born and raised in Racine, WI, a small town 30 miles south of Milwaukee, and Armen grew up in Greenfield, WI, a suburb of Milwaukee. Now, we know you're all wondering why David has such a funny sounding name. Well, we don't have an answer to that, but we promise to figure it out and report back to you all. Just keep listening.
The three of us have remained close to home. David lives and works in the city of Milwaukee, Armen continues to reside and make a living in the suburbs, and Raffi... well... pinpointing where he lives and works is complicated, but he shows up for our recording dates, and he brings treats, so we don't ask questions.
Racine, WI is home to a relatively small but extremely vibrant Armenian American community, and the three of us grew up participating in various social and cultural activities in Racine and in other Armenian enclaves within the US. Our experiences within our Armenian community are the basis for this podcast; however, we all suffer from significant attention deficit issues, so our conversations regularly take a detour.
