I’m usually not an aggressive self-promoter, but having listened to several reviews of the latest Star Wars movie, I believe our podcast offers one of the richest, most engaging discussions you’ll find of this film. And that’s due to my remarkable friends Jennifer, Rob, and Eugene, who joined me in a no holds barred review of the film. We talk about what we loved about The Last Jedi, what troubled us, Jennifer’s theory of what may happen in Episode 9 (hint: rise up!), and much more. This was one of my favorite episodes of the year and I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for listening!

“At the premiere, there were cameras everywhere and people saying my name. First of all, they knew my name, which is very different for me. And then I saw this girl who was dressed as Rose and I just lost it.” – Kelly Marie Tran

The Ironman Triathlon is a grueling one day endurance race consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and 26.22 mile full length marathon run. It’s considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world. To accomplish this feat once in your lifetime is impressive enough. But to return to this race 3, 4, 5 times or more? Today, I welcome back on the podcast Sam Chung, Jack Chen, and Rob Koh who talked with me about their Ironman experience back in March. What drives them back to Ironman year after year? What’s it like to have to drop out mid-race? And how does one of them train with his six year old daughter? Thank you Rob, Jack, and Sam for coming back to the show!

In the second half of this K-pop series, we identify the secret ingredient that propelled Psy’s “Gangnam Style” to success in the United States, the cautionary tale of The Wonder Girls, and my deep, personal dilemma with nine member girl group Twice’s single, “Likey.”

The K-pop boy band ‘BTS’ made history on November 19, 2017 as the first ever Korean band to perform on the American Music Awards. If you’re mystified by the worldwide phenomenon known as K-pop, you’re not alone. K-pop has experienced a massive surge in popularity in recent years. K-pop has come a LONG way from its roots twenty five years ago when a single live performance by a rookie band electrified the nation. And it’s remarkable that what is essentially “Top 40” music from the relatively small nation of South Korea has reached such epic heights of global domination.

Our story beings with a 19 year old high school dropout, a lonely 13 year old teenage girl, and “a boy named Soo.”

This is (finally!) the second half of my conversation with Pastor Darryl Brumfield and Professor Jennifer Lee Koh. We talk about immigration — a timely topic given the recent news. Jennifer shares her perspective as someone who runs an immigration clinic and is very much witnessing what’s happening with undocumented immigrants on the ground, while Darryl gives his thoughts of how immigration does and should relate to the Christian church. Finally, I discuss an article written by a progressive writer who wonders whether the democrats have gone too far in embracing immigration.

Thank you again Darryl and Jennifer for another amazing episode!

Darryl Brumfield and Jennifer Lee Koh are back to talk about why juries have consistently found police officers NOT guilty in the shooting and killing of black civilians. Darryl also shares what it’s like to both give and receive “the Talk,” as well as a personal experience of being arrested by the police in an all-white neighborhood (and staring down the barrel of the officer’s shotgun).

Thank you Darryl and Jennifer for another amazing episode!

The second half of my interview with Darryl Brumfield. Darryl has spent more than thirty years as both a software engineer and as a pastor. For the last several years he’s been serving at Newsong Church in Santa Ana, CA. He’s a gifted speaker, funny story teller, and, as someone who grew up in the city of Compton during white flight, someone with an extremely unique and fascinating childhood, with experiences he’s carried with him to this day. Last year, Darryl published his first book called, “Hearing God & Slaying Giants in Your Career.” I had the pleasure of speaking to Darryl, learning more about how he thinks, and simply shearing the amazing stories about his life. 

Many thanks to Darryl for his arresting insight and generosity of spirit!

Two quick corrections: The Watts Riots happened in 1965, not 1968. And there were actually two “Great Migrations” of African Americans from the south, the first wave in the 1920s, and the  which began in 1940.

The modern workplace can be stressful--to say the least. Most of us work out of necessity, and yet we also have unique motivations that fuel our creativity. What inspires us not just to work but to do our very best? Is there a right or wrong approach to work? What drives highly ambitious or ultra competitive people? To help answer these questions, I’m joined by Eugene Chang and licensed therapist Tim Long. Tim helps us interpret our different approaches to work through the lens of a professional counselor, and sheds light on the hidden forces at play (no pun intended) in how we approach our careers.

Many thanks to Tim and Eugene!!!

Apologies for being blunt, but why does government suck right now? And what can we do about it? Once again, it’s something the mainstream media hasn’t told you. Here's my theory for why politics is so dysfunctional -- and the one (and maybe ONLY) thing that will fix it.

White privilege is not an easy topic to talk about. In fact, arguably in certain circles the number one rule about white privilege is you don't talk about white privilege. Jennifer and Jeremy return to provide a thoughtful, respectful, and personal conversation about racial privilege. What it is, why it's so hard to talk about, and ways we can move the dialogue forward in a healthy way. We also discuss Princeton Theological Seminary's recent decision to rescind the Kuyper Prize from Pastor Tim Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian Church.

Thank you Jeremy and Jennifer for another insightful, deeply entertaining conversation! Listeners, let us know what you thought of the show. :)

I’m moving all forthcoming updates concerning the podcast off of my personal Facebook profile and onto the new page—including a new upcoming episode with returning guests Jeremy Weese and Jennifer Lee Koh!

Dave Wallace and I have had several conversations about whitewashing over the past year. He and I come from very different places, and that becomes evident in our differences of opinion. But despite our disagreements, I've appreciated our civil, respectful dialogues about a sensitive topic. It's something I wish we saw more of in the mainstream press.

In any event, at long last Ghost in the Shell has come out in theaters, and Dave and I caught up one more time to discuss our thoughts on the movie and where we stood on the whitewashing controversy.

Thank you Dave for an honest & thoughtful discussion!

It doesn’t seem humanly possible. Swim 2.4 miles in open water. Bike 112 miles--farther than the distance from Manhattan to Philadelphia. And then, assuming you have any energy left, run a full length marathon, 26.2 miles. All back to back to back, in less than 17 hours. That is the Ironman triathlon—widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world. (And not to be confused with “Iron Man” Tony Stark of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.) Today, I speak with three men who have all completed full length Ironman races and are training for more.

I ask them to do a bit of soul searching--while I do a bit of my own--as they talk about what drives their ambition to compete in this crazy race. They discuss what it takes to finish an Ironman and whether or not it’s fair to describe Ironman training as “selfish.” (Lots of shout outs to significant others in this episode!) We talk about training schedules, logistics, nutrition, and the mental challenges of completing a race. And in a twist, regular contributor—and triathlete in her own right—Jennifer Lee Koh joins us to reveal what it’s like to be an “Ironmate.”

Many thanks to Rob Koh, Jack Chen, and Sam Chung for taking the time to talk and reflect! Sam, Jack, and Rob are all part of the Trinity Endurance Club or TEC—a group that Sam started to build and foster a community of fitness fans. This was such a fun conversation, and I am so inspired by your stories!

If Angry Asian Man had become a professor rather than a blogger, his career might have looked a lot like Dr. Nancy Wang Yuen's. Nancy spent years having candid conversations with actors, directors, talent agents and others in the industry. Her research led to her book, "Reel Inequality: Hollywood Actors and Racism." In our wide ranging conversation, she shares her insights about Hollywood, race, structural inequality, and overcoming stereotypes. We also talk Oscars, the first movie Nancy watched (think Cher), and as a self-identified "pop culture geek," her geekiest pop culture interest.

Thank you Nancy for your entertaining book and discussion!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Eugene is back for a conversation about The Lego Batman Movie! I offer my bold outrageous theory that the movie — while perfectly kid friendly — is ultimately not a “kids movie” (and who it’s really for). Eugene reveals what he thought about Will Arnett’s Batman and how this movie compared to the original. Hint: It’s not a sequel. And we both talk about our favorite scenes.

We are HOURS away from the inauguration of President Donald Trump and I am THRILLED to have Jeremy Weese on the show. And even more good news, regular contributor Jennifer Lee Koh is back. We didn't scare her away! 
 
We take a deep dive into why white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump in such large numbers and why Jeremy thinks evangelicals "don't know how to vote." Jennifer explains what sanctuary cities are and we discuss the looming battle between federal and local governments over immigration. Thank you so much Jennifer and Jeremy for coming by! Enjoy the show!

Angela shares a fascinating story about her journey from victim to self-empowerment. And she reveals the first three words she would say to any newborn baby. Hint: It's not "I love you" though those words would follow closely after.

Near death experiences have reentered pop culture in recent years with best-sellers like “Proof of Heaven” and “Heaven is for Real.” But are near death experiences legit? Are NDE’ers actually having out of body experiences and travelling towards a light at the end of the tunnel? Or are they merely illusions of the mind? Today we tell the harrowing, sometimes tragic, and extraordinary stories of three individuals who might just possibly have travelled to the other side.

When I first started podcasting, I had initially envisioned a debate and discussion type format with regular contributors, along the lines of Slate’s Political Gabfest. That idea eventually evolved into the “storytelling” format I use for regular episodes. But I finally had the opportunity to try the gabfest format after my friends Jennifer Lee Koh and Grace Ong agreed to join me for a conversation I’m calling “Post-Tiger Parenting in the Age of President Trump.” This was a really fun and interesting discussion and I hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much to Grace and Jennifer for playing along! :)

There will be more content coming to the podcast in the forthcoming weeks, including a full more “traditional” episode as well as my interview with an inspirational speaker.
