Episode details

Hello from Jay’s dried-out basement (finally)! 

This week, writer Hua Hsu joins us for a record fourth appearance on the pod as part of our neverending anniversary celebration. In a wide-ranging chat, we touch on (7:08) how podcasting has influenced our interview styles, (16:55) the "Succession" series finale [SPOILER ALERT], and (27:30) Tammy’s accidental encounter with edibles. (38:22) We also look back at a previous conversation with Hua, from January 19, 2021, and reflect on major changes in Asian American media representation.

In this episode, we ask: 

Which “Succession” character deserved to win?!

Whom has the Internet erased from Asian American art?  

Who is Jay's (extremely specific) target audience?
