Can the Good Guys Take Control of the GOP? Lauren Boebert Explains

"I have to ask you, congresswoman, the question I always ask you when you come on the show and please follow this lady right now at rep boebert that's rep bobert and boba house dot com dot com. What is the power relationship? Can the good guys can the freedom caucus patriotic congressmen and women like yourself take control of the party so that the rhino faction is now no longer relevant? You know, I sure hope so. I do believe that we are going to take the take back the house in the next Congress and I'm really looking forward to that. We don't know about the Senate and we'll still have a commander in chief who's in command of nothing being told what to do on a daily basis in between his naps and applesauce. But I think the number one thing that we are going to be able to do as the freedom caucus as principled conservative is investigate the Biden crime family and the Democrat party investigate the 2020 elections investigate what is going on at the border. Hopefully we'll see you in or impeachment from Mallorca and others who have failed our country, the safety and security of our nation by allowing 2 million illegal aliens to invade our country over the past year and allow fentanyl into our country and then of course I want to look further into Afghanistan, what left 13 of our heroic soldiers dead. You know, this is stuff that I want to look into, and this is why I'm looking forward to taking back the House in 2022. And doctor gorka, I would appreciate it if your listeners could help me out with that. Lauren for freedom dot

"I don't know who gives a shit about Cobb vanth. Yeah. But it's not me. Yeah, that's fair. Not even Cobb Vance, again. Refrigeration. He may play a bigger role and be bigger in the future, but yeah, you of course knew that grogu was going to show back up and choose mando because otherwise, Mandarin doesn't have anybody to talk to. It's not the show's not in cub. And he fits in that little pod in the back of the water. And maybe he'll give him a tiny little darksaber. Yeah. I keep thinking that mando, they're going to find out mando has like, hey, you had some force capabilities, but nobody ever found out because you were snatched up. But it could be little grogu is a Mandalorian foundling. And he'll get his own version of a lightsaber or something. I a 100% think they're going to 86. The little pod that he rides along and that he's just going to be cracked out in the force and just floating everywhere he goes. Which I'm all right with. Yeah, I'm okay with this. Where is he going to get that force training now? On the job. Best way to do it on the job. He's going to keep lifting heavy stuff and then going to sleep. That's how you get big. That's how I got big. Lift in the dozen off. Brush my teeth, milkshakes. Todd what do you think? I enjoyed it. I think that the entire series, it fits the entire series in this institute. It's good but not great. It's fun. I mean, it's not supposed to be Macbeth. It's not supposed to be some grand Shakespearean work of drama. It's fun Star Wars movie. I mean, it's popcorn. Pretty disposable entertainment. It does kind of satisfy the mysteries around boba Fett, some of them. You know, it does give you some of that. As a series, this leans way too hard into The Mandalorian. I think even the finale. You know, it's like they spent too much time like, oh, we gotta do some Mandalorian season three, 'cause it's gonna be a while or whatever it's like, they spent too much time worrying with that. When this didn't really completely flip the book of boba Fett. No. And this felt more like a general finale for mando and grogu. I think I read somewhere that Pedro Pascal didn't even spend any time on set. He just did a voice voice-over and then it was all stunt double. Interesting. Yeah. That could be completely wrong. Don't fact check me because I'm probably wrong. Yeah. But I mean, yeah, you never see his helmet off, so. Yeah. And he even gets chastised for supposedly taking his helmet off in the past. You know, he has to leave. I know he's got his hands up, he's not going to do it again. Does that guarantee he's like, oh, we can just use his thought double because he ain't damn sure taking it off now. Yeah. Part of me wonders if this show was purely to justify the bringing back of boba in The Mandalorian season two. And justifying because you can't just bring back boba and not do anything with it, right? So to bring them back in Mandarin season two, you would have all the nerds clamoring for where's the story of boba. And now we got it, close that chapter, this book is locked like let's walk away. And we can bring those characters back. We can see fennec shand, we can see boba Fett again. Mandalorian season three, or in whatever next chapter of.

"How performative of you to celebrate Asians just on this one holiday? We got the lunar new year and we got the month of May, I guess. I guess those are the only two times Asians matter, apparently. Yeah. Before we get started, I also wanted to quickly apologize to everybody who tried to buy a book symbol, but tote bag over the last month. We use a platform called bonfire that creates order windows called campaigns, and sometimes if not enough people order our merchandise, the entire purchase order doesn't go through. And that's what happened to our talk by quarters over the last month I received the email saying that all the orders have been canceled due to not hitting the order threshold. So if you try to buy a total by last month and receive that email, sorry about that. I have changed the tote bag settings to on demand, which means your order for a 12 pack will go through the moment you submit the order. This means on our end we're not receiving the benefits of the economies of scale, but I'd much rather you have your tilt back to go represent a book club than penny pinch on not making an extra 20 cents on the bank. So if you did get your order canceled, you should be able to get your order through if you go to our books in boba bonfire store now. The apparel orders went through fine so if you ordered a bookseller with T-shirt or sweatshirt, you should be getting those soon, but so yeah, hopefully now those of you who want 8 book symbols pack will be able to get one. I like to rock mines. When I go to buy boba, just to be smug about it. I use my tote bag as my main purse because I'm always just carrying a shit ton of stuff. It's surprisingly fits a lot of things. So I've been using that as my main grocery bag and my main takeaway bag. Pretty much anything you can stuff in it. I've been using it. Yeah. And your support has helped us pay for about I want to say half a year of hosting for this show. So thank you for that support as well. And with that said, rira, can you start us off with the book jacket summary for she who became the son? All right. In 1345, China lies under harsh Mongol rule for the starving peasants of the central plains greatness is something found only in stories. But when Jew families 8th born son Zhu zhongba is given a fate of greatness, everyone is mystified as to how it will come to pass. The fate of nothingness received by the family's clever and capable second daughter on the other hand is only as expected. When a bandit attack orphans the two children, though it is Zhu chongba who succumbs to despair and dies. Desperate to escape her own faded death, the girl uses her brother's identity to enter a monastery as a young male novice. They're propelled by her burning desire to survive, Jew learns she is capable of doing whatever it takes no matter how callous to stay hidden from her fate. After her sanctuary is destroyed for supporting the rebellion against Mongol rule, Jew takes the chance to claim another future altogether. Her brother's abandoned greatness. And that is a very good place to start our discussion because that is part one of the book. Yeah. I guess we're off the bat. What are your general impressions after finishing the book? So we've read a couple of Chinese inspired military fantasies Marvin has read the poppy war. We've read the grace of kings for this podcast as well as Empress of salted fortune. So we kind of know how these types of stories go..

"And welcome back. Another many episode talking about the book of boba Fett episodes four and 5. The book, cinema, cinema. In my view. It's all of our veno. We record episode four and we have the technical difficulties with that. I'll probably have my part to hit record. Todd was pulling his pants up out of the bathroom and the SD card fell into the toilet. Yeah, I clicked on one of those spam emails about how to get four inches. I'm telling you, man, it worked for Taylor. Yeah. Yeah. You've got the wrong email. P has to be upside down. That's right. That's when you know it's real. That's right. Click on that one. Is that actually the P or is that the P and the email? Exactly. Yeah. It's actually at peanut. So episode four, I figured we could tidy that up real quick. I remember that being kind of a placeholder episode moving on to more action. Full circle. Absolutely. Yes. Brings us up into the more now of him meeting chand in the desert whenever she's wounded. Patching her up and bringing her back and then the tattoo artist. Yes. Yeah. Well, and the big reveal at the end of the episode, now is not as much of like cheese, right? Yeah. It's like the episode ended with The Mandalorian music and we were just like, oh my God, it's The Mandalorian coming back. Well, now we know. Yeah. Great. Basically we get a free episode of The Mandalorian after that. She's 2.5. Yeah, which is nice. I'll take that. But I enjoyed it in a general way. It wasn't anything specifically great about the episode. I just enjoy Star Trek, and it was more Star Trek. So worse, of course, Star Wars, Star Wars. Yeah. I think if we're watching here, just gonna say Star Trek. We'll leave that. That's gonna be worth no. That's never gonna hate mail. What color would Picard's nerds are coming for us? Picard? Yeah, what color lightsaber here? Green. Red. Hot take young Picard, yes. Young, hot headed Picard would be red. Picard loves too much to be a Jedi. That's true. That man loves some ladies. He does.

"But I'm going to tell you, I am still in. And why, because of the casting, it is actors I love in space western drag on pew pew pew pew pew pew, and it's the Laura Dern and last Jedi effect. I didn't see that. I can't fight that. I can't find it. I mean, sure. Morrison Ming no win, but you could Stephen root. You got Danny Trejo. Jennifer Beals shows up. I mean, what a feeling. Killing her role. Yes. Killing her all, right? And you got this one actor who was buried under makeup, but whose face and delivery is so expressive. Yeah. I want to show you guys around him. Give me the book of David pasqua. And yes, of course. They are using Matt berry, but man they're using a paper thin slice of what that guy can do. But he's there. But let me ask you this. This is not the boba Fett that seized fanboy imaginations back in the day, right? He's not ruthless efficient laconic, mysterious. He's not even really a badass. They kind of taken that all away. He's kind of a softy here. He doesn't have a rule through fear. He wants to be loved. He forgives slights, and you show him a big animal. And he's just a big old cuddle bug, which is kind of my favorite thing. And I think what the show is trying to say there is that this interlude he had with the Tuscan raiders his very Lawrence Arabia slash dune slash dances with wolves interlude among the Tuscan raiders that made him grow as a person. He's not alone wolf anymore. He wants to be part of a pack, but it is a big disconnect between the boba Fett we knew. How is that landing on you guys, Joel? I'm really enjoying it and for multiple reasons. Like one, yes, there's this idea of the dances with wolves of it all. But the difference is like tomorrow Morrison is Maori and he's bringing a lot of indigenous culture and inflection into the storyline. And the culture of Star Wars is no longer just sand people. Their tusken raiders, right? And now we have an entire cultural background for that. And for boba Fett to sort of come out of the costume, you couldn't do the face and shield after Mandalorian. It doesn't make sense to do it back to back like, oh, here we are in another costume, avoiding our feelings. So I really like the fact that here's this older bounty hunter who's sort of at the end of his rope. He doesn't want to be a soldier anymore, particularly a foot soldier he mentions like, you know, these things can be resolved. So we're smarter than them. We understand how these transactions actually work because we're always in the middle. I think that's a fascinating approach to a character that has been I mean, let's face it very one note for the entire duration of his existence. I know that it has upset a lot of fanboys. I've talked to you several of the guys in my life who are like, where is the badass bounty hunter? I fell in love with. What is the point of this? And I was like, well, the point is to grow. I truly feel you would be bored if you just saw the same thing again, because certainly couldn't do it in an extended television series. You would have to be like his last ride, and then he dies at the end. You're like, oh, he's so epic. Which is cool and fun. And I think this is for Star Wars fans who are getting older to sort of have this space like contemplate. What do we want to do with our twilight years and how are we going to spend them?.

"Are streaming now, only on peacock, go to peacock TV dot com to sign up. Say the name boba Fett and most folks will recall the mysterious badass bounty hunter from the original Star Wars films. They might also remember that he got thrown into the sarlacc pit in return of the Jedi where we assumed he'd get slowly digested over a thousand years. He got out. We learned that much at least in the Disney+ series of The Mandalorian, exactly how he escaped that grizzly fate and what became of him later is the subject of the spin off series the book of boba Fett, which stars him wear a Morrison and Ming-Na Wen. I'm Glenn Weldon and today we're talking about the book of boba Fett on pop culture happy hour from NPR. Joining me today is iHeartRadio producer Joel Monique, well. Hi Glenn. Also back with us returning to the show is Laura Siri cool. She's a freelance writer and movie critic. Welcome back. Laura. Hi, thank you for having me. Of course. Boba Fett. Oh he has had a convoluted history of both on and off the screen. He was introduced in an animated sequence in the cheese tastic Star Wars holiday special in 1978. Two years later, he'd make his first big screen appearance in The Empire Strikes Back as a bounty hunter hired to retrieve Han Solo. We didn't learn much about him in that original trilogy as he didn't say much. George Lucas conceived of him as Clint Eastwood's man with no name if he had a jetpack. Violent, yes, but with a personal code. Boba Fett was available as an action figure through the mail before he appeared in the movies, and that turns out to be important because not knowing much about the guy, plus having his action figure be so hard to get, combined to make fans go nuts about the mysterious boba Fett. All of his essential mystery would pretty much vanish with the Star Wars prequels where we learn that under that cool ass helmet. Boba Fett is the sun sort of long story of Django. The man who became the basis of the clone army. In the book of boba Fett, temp where Morrison plays the title character, the series vacillates between flashbacks to what happened to him after he escaped the sarlacc pit, and the present day as he takes over Jabba the hut criminal empire on tatooine. His lieutenant fennec chand is played by Ming-Na Wen, and they are jockeying for position among just really a lot of competing interests. We'll talk about it. We've seen only the first four episodes of the Disney+ series and we will be talking about what's happened in all of those, so be warned. Joelle, what are your thoughts on the book of boba Fett? Oh, okay. So it's not a home run, and we're just going to be okay with that. Is truly doing for me as a fan is expanding this universe? Are we learning about the history of tattooing? Are we going to get into how it went from an ocean planet to a desert planet and solidify some of these details and actual canon? That's good stuff. That's spicy. It's also giving us a lot of dope secondary characters, which let's be honest is sort of been the Disney+ like go do. It's like this character, okay? We could maybe do a movie with them, great people are playing these folks..

"Yada yada. We know the event's been learned. But this now he has the armor back, goes back to tatooine post the events of Mandalorian sits on the throne, and then we pretty much pick up right there, right? So timeline wise, we're completely deviating from a Mandalorian. Yeah. Yeah. And The Mandalorian takes place. As far as we know, 5 years after, return of the Jedi, okay. Yeah, battle, you have not battle the oven. Yeah. Because that's the marker for how they mark time is, right? Yeah. Yavin is your zero. Okay. And I think this, I think return of the Jedi was four years after yavan. So we're now 9 years post heaven. I believe that's right. We'll have to. So we're nerds can correct us on that, but I believe that. Don't fucking correct us. No, no, no, please. I want to read them. So final thoughts on first episodes. Are you excited? I was excited with the beginning. It better get good. And I enjoyed episode one. But I also didn't like seeing smacked around. I was like, no. My last skate resident bad. Yes. So I want to see him get all healed up. I like seeing him get to orc big bad bodyguard daddies. Good morning. Good morning. Yeah, good morning. Those are great. I want to see if he's daddy's rank word to feed. And if they're like, Jesus, this thing is expensive. Well, the rank score is dead. We know that much. Maybe there's a baby. But there are other rank wars out there. That one the only obviously there's more rancor is out there. I'm not saying rank wars were extinct. But the rank were that was under job as palace is no longer there. Also, I wanted to crush that was the saddest. I want to see some more sweet blue elephants that loved play jazz piano. Yeah. All right, two, three, four. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, and some aliens that look like giant vagina heads. And that is what boba Fett is missing in his palace is boba's palace does not have a cantina band. Also, I want him to wear his helmet more often. I don't know. I love Morrison. But I want he doesn't have the same code as the Mandela. Yeah, The Mandalorian mando. It's kind of the Spider-Man problem of its hard to act with the helmet on. How do you have to do a lot of gesticulation? You got a lot of rapid body movements, and that doesn't really fit with boba Fett's character. If you want to develop it, yeah. He always looks cool at all. Yes, he does. Yes, he does. I need a lot of acting out of my boba Fett. I guess this is what I'm saying. He's a very stoic character. Yeah. No, I thought it was good..

To me, it's very similar aesthetic to Mandalorian. Everything's dusty. Everything's sandy, dusty. His dirty sci-fi. Yeah. Yeah. Great. Yeah, the very beginning has been my favorite part with him stuck in the sarlacc bit. You get to see how he escapes. Exactly. That's the biggest existential question of boba Fett.

Bb theory romance interest. Is daniel henney or godfrey. Cowan disguise for being earthier. Gotta be but yeah. There's a lot of fun. wins definitely. Go check them out on twitter. Because you know i was so angry reading about this. B s like. How dare they think they can do this to young readers young young readers re whatever they want. I mean if there's one thing these sorts of people up doing is telling people what they shouldn't shouldn't read the do you know how if this is catching the industry there. Is there any danger of becoming an actual thing or is it just. Something rarely participates out. It's a conversation that's been happening for years because like i said about that third grade teacher who got fired because of her reading recommendations it's been happening in a lot of small communities where a lot of conservative parents usually white conservative parents have been like very strict on what they want their kids to read and i think that's like a response to a lot of what is happening with diversity in publishing so because publishing has been getting a little bit better about including more diverse stories and representing more than just immigrant pain and black pain and painting these characters of marginalized backgrounds as actual humans with emotions and experiences. Parents aren't they just. Don't want their kids to empathize with these non white characters. They're really coming out with their with their pitchforks. Two parent teacher meetings and yeah. I think it's it's a lot of of reactionary thing goes back to the whole backlash against critical race theory right and schools. I would say it is. It is on that same playing field. Well what a time to be a parent. Let me just say oh well. Hopefully this'll be the last week here of this rating system and hope the internet backlash will teach them how to try this shit again. Although i'm sure. I don't think it'll happen again at some point. Well anyway. this has been our shade corner of books in boba for joining us for this mid-month check in for september twenty twenty one Re-re reminds what we're reading for our september.

Triggering some deep-sea trauma as a former overachiever. It's really funny because Publishers weekly they have a roundup of the club picks by various book clubs and they put our book club pick in in their article and they said chemistry was the perfect book for asian burnouts and as someone who has read this book in their in their mid-twenties yes.

No money paulie must navigate a new life and find a way to locate frank determine if he is alive and if they're love has endured so i was pretty surprised for a time travel novel. It was said in the past because a when you travel into the future. It's like a time period that we haven't Experience in in real life but the future in this book is two thousand two. Yeah it was actually took me a while to wrap my head around the fact that this takes place in an alternate timeline. It's a u Of our timeline were a mutated flu.

I even had a chance to receive your book. I think she's very excited. I'm talking to you right now. So we usually like to ask our authors like if they were always a writer if it's a passion that came later in life. I know that like i was looking at your bio earlier and it seems like you've juggled a lot of things in your past in your past life. You were an entomologist. You were a candle maker. You were a teacher. So how did you become a writer. Yeah so my road to writing and publication was really windy and long always been a really voracious reader. Remember getting stacks and stacks of books from the library on my mama. Take me there like every weekend. And i would get you back then. I think libraries have limited to now. But back then you. It was as much as you could carry over like rain. Myself down with books But i never really saw myself in any of the books that i read. I looking back now as i am. Kind of examining my adolescents. I i had never read a book. By japanese american author or even an asian american author.

I tried to do in for with a sexy voice and it's not worth. It was funny. Though i it into the last Last cut we're here today to talk about our june twenty twenty one book club. Pick happy endings by kim lamb. Which is our our second romance novel for this book club. And because last time. I was woefully inadequate for the discussion. We brought into romance novel. Experts to the podcast they are also my co host for the pop culture club which is a pop culture podcast. I also host welcome to the show hung win. And just do what the crossover no one wanted are asked for but we wait. I thought we were going to use our sexy voices. I roll up in the bedroom. Let's take off our clue. it works though. I mean you can't argue with the results i mean. I feel every episode of pop veers into romance novel territory anyway so it just seemed like a good like hey if i if i pick another romance novel can get haunted just on yeah probably are so honored or so honored that you thought of like who are the horn easiest nerds you can think of. Hana jess just reading reading. Sex books a lived experience but we read a lot of them. I'm really happy that you guys are on the show. Because i don't read a lot of sex novels so it's good to have people who have more frame of reference than than i do so thank you so much for coming all right. Let's we're going to try something new with our guest just to just to get to know you better so justin han if you want to let us know. What is your favorite genre slash trope in literature and also your current favorite bull border so hi. I'm jess ju- if you haven't already figured from the very obnoxious yelling just at the top of this episode i am a professional asian. My side hustle is romance novels of various sorts. My favorite like literary trope. I think has to be like like secret parentage. Like it's big and fantasy right. You're like you know they're you know they're special and then kind of revealed that there's some like secret lineage that ties them to a greater world a greater cause a different a different world We get like harry potter. Even though you know she's a fucking turf but it. I can't how influential that was to me Yes i love that. And my current boba order is the long cheese foam t from sun. Studio it's delightful. I actually just had one yesterday and yet don't look at how much i spend on boba orders every week so are also a fan of the race secret parentage. From star wars shut the fuck up was why are you. Bring the shit. No no good secret parentage. Good secret parentage. Okay like you know. In game of thrones. We have not gone to that point in the books. But i do think the show pulled that off beautifully before it just committed ally quasi was. Oh my god. I mean it was very obvious but it's still very like delightful executed until you know. They drove that last season off a cliff. I also have a lot of favorite troves enemies to lovers of forced forced to being some kind of situation like okay. And i'm going to sell i'm gonna i'm gonna. I'm search so exposing myself. But i think we need to be like very vulnerably honest to have a great discussion on this topic. So you know. I read a law fan fiction and fan fiction like you're forced to share a bed in like a some cabin for some reason that would never happen in real life and they're like oh it should his bed now ohno like each other and okay like chemistry and like now. We're love kind of thing. I'm so exposing myself. But yes we appreciate the honesty and han. I am han win. I am the senior culture editor at pslon. Which means i have read many books in my life. I guess and i don't. I'm glad you didn't ask like when was the earliest. You read a sexy because that was way early. My dad had a lot of books. So let's see favorite literary trope. Well i don't know how literary it is but it is also from fantasy. And i think marvin you know about this. I specifically like when a protagonist has to grow up in some sort of military academy and not just that but like i like to see them learning all sorts of like military skills But i also like when they are bullied at first and then they come some some sra martyr and then they have to overcome all of that stuff so Yeah i love that shit. I hate the actual you know actual military stuff but those books i love. I want say that's really specific but that's like half of fantasy right there fan true. I looked that and then when it comes to favorite rom com trope while i do enjoy an enemies to lovers and a marriage of convenience. I also very much like if they do it right. The fake relationship because some people are really good at it. And it's fun to make things up. I've even thought about this myself. I would be awesome at doing a fake relationship. Because i like no details about people. And i'd be able to play it up right But then some people are awful and that of course brings some humor and then there's always the sort of like surprise. I need to kiss you or hold your hand right situation. Oh talking specifically rahm khan troops. Because i got a list of those. Two jolted jolted before but how the glow up and now now for revenge ballons gray as far as my mobile order. It's very similar to dresses because she actually introduced me to that place so for me. I just realized that it has to be a very dark tea. Darker the better but with the cheese foam because that makes it nice and salty. Kind of like a carmo. Yeah and that's a welcome to book symbol or so glad to have you to hear especially because as you mentioned before you two are my go-to resident romance wrong com experts and so excited for our conversation So yeah let's get to it. This is your standard spoiler warning. We're going to be spoiling plot points and themes of happy endings. Although.

Kumiko witnessed during the island massacre and to poetry as well as her own lived experience to answer questions inside all of us. So right off the bat. I figure i mean i really enjoyed reading this book I'm not like literally trained person but Ej's pros is really beautiful very descriptive. Very there's a lot of stuff going on and a lot of really like beautiful descriptions. But i know that because i am a son of immigrants and not a daughter especially not a daughter of a korean immigrant. I know that your relation to this story might be a little more deeper than than mine. But what did you. How did you feel about this book. Man i how do i even answer that question. Is i knew that i knew going in that memoir was going to be very difficult for me to read. I'm a very emotional reader for those of you. Who haven't been listening to our podcast for for a while. But when i memoirs are supposed to be personal and it's supposed to tell the story of the author but for me when i was reading. Ej hose book. It seemed like she was holding up a mirror. I guess instead of her instead of just like listening and consuming her story. It felt like i was seeing kind of like this distorted reflection of my own childhood and my own adulthood and like you said like her prose is really gorgeous. I think that has a lot to do with the fact that she is a poet and she knows how to use each word to its maximum effect. Just like an example of her poetic prose. I highlighted a quote from her. I watched the sun come up like an egg cracked open underwater. It's yoke rising with listlessness.

And i'm rewrite you and welcome to our first books in boba bid month news review For the year. Twenty twenty one rira. How's your new year been It's been going okay. I've been avoiding social media which has been reporting a lot of garbage. That's been happening as of late to this country so it's been pretty mellow on my side. How about you. That's probably a good call. I've been am. I a on social media. I noticed you know how on instagram people do your top nine for the year. Your top narayan images In twenty twenty. I only had nine xers total. Yeah i'm not. I'm not a big instagram user. Either which is probably why books boba. Our instagram is. Pretty bare and i apologize for that. We do have content. It's just we upload as my thoughts who i've been. I've been being a little lax in creating audio grams of our episodes but I'm working on those where we're going to have some highlights from someone are best author interviews over the last year up soon. I promise But just this whole lockdown quarantine pandemic situation. I think i mentioned this on the podcast before. But i feel like i'm becoming more and more with sudden like i know i'm being forced to be a shut in but finding that actually like it. It's gonna it's not. It's not a bad life being a being a shot in well. We're here today to talk about the latest book news in asian american literature We always start with the latest publishing deals And it's a pretty light month. January is typically just not a big month for deals said it's a it's a debt month mainly because the holiday season has passed but there are a saw. Let's get to them. What's i deal. I deal is amulet acquired. My sister's big fat indian wedding by patel. The why romcom follows an aspiring violinist. Who must secretly juggle the obligations of her sisters extravagant wedding week with auditions for a prominent music contest. On top of all this. She must dodge her nosy families matchmaking. Schemes publication is scheduled for spring. Twenty twenty two awesome title. The way i feel like we've been seeing more and more of these asian wedding stories. You know what bring it. I love wedding stories. I love movies. That take place during weddings. And it's just. I don't know i just like big party. Seems yeah annoy mentioned that. I've never been to indian wedding. But i hear they're per t nuts Chinese weddings would just eat a lot. korean wedding. I don't think i've twinned with those neither well. Korean weddings have definitely transformed a lot from the traditional crean weddings Sort of like for the korean traditional weddings like you wear like humble and there's like specific rituals you drink alcohol and you catch dates with your skirt and whatnot and a lot of a lot of couples. Don't do that anymore. It's become very streamlined and westernized so Actually have a pretty funny story about about korean wedding so last time i went to korea I went for my cousin's wedding and it was my first korean wedding that it was going to and it took place at a wedding hall. There's there's a bunch of wedding halls in this district and seoul and pretty much like what they do is like the bride usually doesn't buy address. They can rent it from the wedding hall. And they have like makeup artists and hairstylists. It's all part of the package. So it's much cheaper and the bride usually sits like in a sitting room where people come up and say congratulations and then they take pictures. So it's literally a place for people to just take pictures with the bride and once the wedding starts for my cousin's wedding. There was like a runway like it wasn't like an eye on it was like a platform runway show. Yeah it's kind of like a modeling runway and every everything in the wedding hall was like super. It seemed more kind of like Like a press conference in way. It didn't it was definitely like not like the romantic decorations that you see in american weddings. But they don't have bridesmaids they don't have groomsmen but what they do have our wedding singers. So what happens during the wedding is that they have like a performer. Sometimes it's a friend who can sing really well or professional wedding singer and they serenade the couple but the thing is it's very awkward because the couple is just standing there watching the wedding singer like saturday to them. And it's like it's just like okay. Well like no one is. Dancing is just like them standing there and watching the strangers sing to them and you have an option of having like a dinner and show pretty much so people will be like eating while they watched the wedding hap. It happened sometimes. it's a buffet style so for the buffet style. Which was what happened with my cousin's wedding. Everyone who is invited to wedding. They have to like pay because that is like the wedding tradition. You pay money to help. Cover the cost of housing for them. Or whatever. if you go to like an asian wedding attorneys wedding everyone brings. There's no wedding gifts. Everyone just brings down belowps. Yeah bring envelopes. And there's like a set amount depending on how close you are to the bride and groom so. If you're just like a coworker it might just be like like twenty five dollars or whatever and the closer you are you pay more

"You're listening to books and bobo. Oppo club podcasts. Between books by easing american doctors are marvin gaye and angrier. And we're here today to talk about our october. Twenty twenty book club. Pick confessions by name and knoxville translated by steven snyder. Who re-re you picked. You picked a doozy for spooky twenty twenty. It really was the perfect read for for spooky month. In my opinion yeah. This episode should be released on election. Day twenty twenty. How are you feeling as we enter this potentially new era. I've just been trying not to think about it. I submitted my ballot a couple of days ago. And i'm like well. It's i don't know it feels kind of hopeless but you know you're i don't now i don't know i feel i don't wanna i don't wanna think about it. I like when the results come out. I'm still skeptical on. How much can change. How much damage control do yeah. Oh at least we can still escape to our books as a resident alien from canada. I'm counting on all you people to To us that's right. You can't vote. I voted for the first time when a moved to california. Because i didn't become naturalized until i was like twenty one twenty. Which very like my this is only like my second election because because the last election the first very first one i voted for was trump versus clinton and wow. I was appointed by the results of it my first election. I vote and i was like. Wow i feel like my vote. Didn't cout of but that's democracy for you right. I mean did count. it just didn't count enough. Yeah i know because of the electoral college or some bullshit like our international listeners are going to just be so continue. No i think they understand. Also what's at stake here. I mean everyone knows the situation that our country is an and yeah so Those of us in the future. How's it over there. I hope i hope it's I hope it's not as bleak but yeah Quick reminder that we're gonna be talking about the whole of confessions by claiming not so so that includes spoilers and since this book is kind of like a crime thriller. You definitely don't want to get spoiled before you get into it so make sure you read the book before coming back listening to our discussion. Yeah i would put this in the same category as never let me go. I'll just go into it as cold as possible and then come back and listen to us and it's a pretty quick read only about two hundred and thirty five pages for a novel. It's relatively short so you can probably knock it out in a day or two and back. Okay so we're we're gonna move on tear discussion. Yeah marvin what have you heard about this book before. Because it you know it was an international bestseller. It was extremely popular in japan. It sold millions of copies. And there's a movie based on this book as well. So have you heard about this book before. Going in actually haven't so this is my first time exposed to this I guess you can call source material. actually didn't know there was a film Yeah it's directed by tetsuya kashima. Who is a pretty well known director and it debuted at the toronto international film festival back in twenty ten and it got a lot of critical acclaim so i have not watched a movie and interested in how they adapted it. Yeah i mean it is a form of story that is somewhat familiar in asian media tropes which is like the revenge story right like we've seen this before in like the korean cinema. A lot of japanese films anime manga light novels also feature stories that like kind of focused on revenge right like the wrong party. Getting their justice is probably one of the darker ones of these that i've read

The empress of salt and fortune is tightly and lushly written narrative about empire storytelling and the anger of women a young royal from the far north sent south for a political marriage alone in sometimes reviled, , she has only her servants on her side. . This evocative debut chronicles horr- is to power through the eyes of her handmaiden at once feminist high fantasy and a thrilling indictment of monarchy. . That's I remember when this book got a buzz. . The Library Journal said it was the day of the month buzzfeed said it was A. . Pretty much like the fantasy novel of Spring Twenty Twenty. . So I was really excited about it plus <hes> handmaidens tail and a political drama. . Yeah. . Sure. . That's that sounds like something that I'm really interested in. . Yeah. . I mean my main thing is. . I don't know if the handmaidens hill comparison is that are descriptive of what this story really is because to me, , it definitely was a pro woman story, , but I don't really know if I got handed until vibes besides the fact that there's like a handmaiden it you know I actually got more of. . The handmaiden, , the Korean movie. . I got more of that five because that movie is <hes>. . It's told multiple multiple perspectives and us the story is not what seems like and you kind of have to like piece together <hes> everyone's motives and how their plans and motives like fit together. . So it kind of reminded me more of that movie. . Yeah, , which is also based on a book. . It's based on the fingersmith Sarah Waters, , which I highly recommend. . It's it's great. . Yeah. . It's also queer, , which is you know this book is also very Queer Zaveri Queer friendly story. . There is a lot of different characters on all sides of the LGBTQ spectrum <hes>. . I guess we can start with just how the story is set up. . So the story is told through I guess, , would you call the second person narrative? ? Is that what this is or now I? ? It's third person narrative right? ? Actually it's third person and then when it switches to flashbacks, swin , rabbit is telling the story that's first person right so but basically the main character or the protect I mean tonight even protectionist right like the. . I guess perspective character. . Through the story. . The main character is a monk or in this world, , a cleric named chief who is coated as a non binary they go by them pronouns <hes> and their. . Magical. . Talking Bird companion who is actually like a supercomputer right? ? To go there like a bird that can remember an archive everything it sees and hears you know I had to Google what a what a hoopoe was his Like through context clues was like, , okay, , it's a bird but what this bird? ? Looks like Google Google. . It was I mean right off the bat and we can talk about this later. . Now we want but it's this book is Novella it's really short. . It's one hundred and twenty eight pages I wanNA say or it's it's less than a hundred pages I'll wet. . Okay. . So I just checked how many pages it was on kindle. . It's one hundred twelve pages. . Okay. . So even less yeah, , and in those short on a pages, , it does a ton of world building and I know this is something that you and I have thoughts about. . But like to me, , I feel like it did a lot of world building through giving really sparse details. . Requiring the reader to kind of fill in the blanks. . Right off the bat, , you have a talking bird which took me a while to figure it was a bird. . <hes> you have supernatural <unk> hungry ghosts. . Yeah. . And like implied magic in the world to there's allusions to Mejia's and whether magic like we mentioned. . So like right off the bat it Kinda throws you into this world that the reader has to figure out what's going on through context lose. . Totally independent of the actual narrative because I think even without the like fantastical. . Does also stand alone on its own as like A. . Story of political intrigue. . In. . Rebellion Yeah.

"Back to books and Boba Club in pocket, which impose Asian and Asian American Authors Marinas Marina. And I'm re-re. You and we are here today our mid month episode toward the month of. July July. Twenty twenty. How're you doing? Good I can't believe that we're ready like halfway into July. Honestly if each like just started no right. Also, I realized that <hes> because Marvin and I used to record in studio. I used to see Marvin by twice a month in person, but we haven't. We haven't seen each other in like. <hes>. Ever since March I don't think we've seen each other. It's been. It's been a while I think the last time we saw each other was when we were recording. What was our? Was? Our February book even. Was! It not <hes> south no map assault stars. was after I. Think it was May. who was such a long time, we? Can just look it up right now. I'm looking at right now. Because the Internet exists, I don't WanNa be one of those people who don't know how Gorka. Let's see now that there's like this website where you put in a Google Inc and then you send you send it to someone who asks you a question right like they could totally yes. Let let me Google there for you. Yeah, yeah, I <hes> back. When I was in Grad School, I was send to. My classmates would ask me dumb questions. They can just google themselves. <hes> sat quite a lot. In College as well our February Book Club pick was the kiss quotient. God so the one recorded with <hes> your friend Kaitlyn. That was our last the last time we saw each other. That's wow. Yeah. I feel like <hes>. These past few months has reinforced idea that. I'm. Pretty Okay with staying at home all the time, which is something I didn't really know about myself or didn't remember about myself. What's your? What's your Myer Briggs by the way? I know it's I. I know it's complete bullshit, but. It does give me a good handle on whether someone is a really extroverted or introverted, and so my with the Myers Briggs is like so if I take the test I usually test at an NF, which is like the Uber. But because of the people I work with I'm often forced to take the set <hes> characteristics. So people are often surprised that I am at NFP because I was surprised, too. Because you know like your co host used to be Mindy. The. She does now she now does first of all which is. which is one of the PODCASTS Einar podcast collective and Like she's she's definitely like more extroverted. She's an actress, so yeah I was pretty surprised once I started co hosting with you. <hes> I thought it was just going to be to interest talking about books. That totally was not the case. The thing with like introvert extrovert is it's not really. Outgoing. This isn't the it's a trait of extroverts, but it's not. It's more of a symptom than like a core thing, right <hes> extroverts just means I. IF I'm out with people are like I can stay up all night. socializing gives me energy instead of expending energy I. Mean I think that's the core difference so? <hes>, but but what I found is I do gain energy from socializing even online with people so <hes> I don't need face to face to be energized and the complete opposite for for. I mean like my Myers Briggs is on twitter, so a lot of people probably know already, but I am <hes> I've tested as I N T J. and. socializing is definitely not my strong point. Every time I do go out to Asian American like shindigs. People are always surprised that I'm there. 'cause tonight, because I, really I. Really don't go out. I'm pretty much a unicorn if you see me out in about. So I definitely adapted to <hes> the whole self isolation thing. Better than others I mean it helps. There's a lot of media to enjoy at home so I've been seeing a lot <hes>. Final fantasy like the past. The past three weeks. Grace I recently I talked about this on some of the other pockets that I'm on <hes> I binged <unk> content this past week, so I washed the old guard, and that I watched all three seasons of dark, I watched the first season of umbrella academy I watched both current seasons of food wars, the the horny food anime, and then I went online and read the rest of the Manga series, so it's been Dan Marvin. I have unhealthy binge habits, which is why I try not to binge as much as possible because. Once I start something I will finish it. It's like it's not even it's not even a of a question. And then I'll spend the next ten hours reading pieces and analysis, so which is why like when you were watching killing eve as it was airing. It definitely curbed that addiction. I know <hes>, but I've phone behind killing eve so now I have a whole season to binge later, so it's so good Marin about that <laughter>. So good. Yeah, I mean. It's the same with books to write I typically read books in like s few sittings as possible because. A because I have <hes> zero self-control, and if you give me the chance to just stay up all night and read something and free or something. I will take that chance
