From Squid Game to Studio Ghibli (ft Michelle Sugihara and Jess Ju)
Squid Game has taken the world by storm, and Studio Ghibli owns some of the most beloved classics. From new to old, violent thriller to cute animation, Korean to Japanese, what is the spectrum of Asian representation in film? Is the Asian model minority stereotype a good thing if being a model – or good example – is positive? And what is symbolic annihilation? Jess Ju and Michelle Sugihara from CAPE (the Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment) join in to share some new films and perspectives! The Pop Culture Moment gets into Dave Chapelle’s joke in the Closer and our thoughts on it.

The 2021 Emmys (ft Anselm Beach)
Anselm Beach from Too Much Screentime joins in to discuss the Emmys, great lines from Cedric the Entertainer, and whether this year’s show was in fact #EmmysSoWhite. Did The Crown really deserve to win 11 awards? Why was Hamilton included in the Emmys? Also, why did no people of color win for any of the acting categories? We also get into the skits, Scott Frank’s cringeworthy acceptance speech, as well as Master of None, and Candyman.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings just came out to the theaters – It’s the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first Asian lead superhero, and it’s crushing it and breaking records at the box office! How does Shang-Chi tie in with the rest of the Avengers? Who is the Mandarin really? How is a headless mythical creature so cute even without a head? Will Americans, including Asian Americans, feel more comfortable with Chinese names after this movie? ie Shang-Chi will no longer have to go by Shawn. We imagine who would win in a battle between Shang-Chi and Black Panther pairs! In Pop Culture, we have the MTV VMA’s and Met Gala~

Music Videos That Strike a Chord (ft Nili Brosh)
Professional guitarist and friend Nili Brosh joins us in today’s episode! Nili is a solo artist and guitarist for Danny Elfman, Cirque du Soleil, Dethklok, Tony MacAlpine, and others! Her music video with male backup dancers caused a stir, and her guitar at Cirque du Soleil shot out fireworks. We talk about what it’s like being a guitarist in a very male industry, and whether it helps to have role models who look like you (not for her)!
Music videos are both an initiator and a reflection of pop culture in the US, and have been monumental for advancing conversations about a variety of social issues and topics. How does that play out? In our Pop Culture Moment – we get into Marvel’s Shang-Chi and Martin Luther King Jr’s speech in Fortnite.
