A highlight from 137: They Call Us Kat Chow

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Pot luck. I'm good. Sorry about that. I hope this isn't. Whoever's editing this, I'm really sorry. Hello and welcome to another edition of they call us Bruce, unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asian America. I'm fill you, and I'm Jeff Yang, and we are here to welcome yet another incredible guest and this is another incredible guest who is also an old friend of ours, and that guest is none other than the author of just a brilliant and moving and heartbreaking and uplifting memoir seeing ghosts and her name is a cat chow. Welcome to the podcast. Thank you so much for having me on. It feels like coming home. I feel like we've both been on the other side of the mic with you. I'm nervous. You guys, it's payback time. But what a fantastic reason to be talking with you this book that you've written. I mean, both Phil and I literally just finished it, it's fresh in our heads and I'm still, in many ways, processing a lot of it, but it is so incredibly well written. And so moving and so deep and yet so propulsive. I couldn't put it down. And I just want to congratulate you. I don't know, and how and when and with what resources you were able to actually pull this together given all the things that have been happening over the last couple of years. But it spoke so deeply to things that I am personally seeing in encountering and dealing with right now in my own family and in my own life. So thank you so much for writing it. Oh, thank you. Thank you for reading it and thank you for having me on. Ken, I'm curious on just kind of in the way you talk about the book. And the way and Jeff and I are speaking from experience of having ourselves trying to bring a book into the world as well.
