"At the catalyst gallery and midtown in baltimore and those were all featured Acrylic paint on canvas Some of them actually experimented with painting on raw canvas with lightboxes. Built five days So that's that's what i primarily And i really enjoyed a acrylic is such a fun medium. It's so flexible and it drives so fast so you have to work fast buck you know it drives can paint over if you mess up so it's really great but i recently i started Working with watercolor and i'm really really liking. It watercolor less forgiving acrylic If you make a mistake you have to live with it. Kinda like life right But i also draw. I really love trying. I may you know before. I make big paining which is a big time commitment. I make a drawing of it and to get an idea of what the painting might look like drum. But i have to remind myself that i cannot be constrained to withdrawing because part of the fun is figuring out what to do next when you make paintings. Yeah but i love drawing because it's a discipline. Anyone can draw really well if you put your time to it so i really like that. But i'm also saying scientists like you mentioned I study science Well i see sediment and water and sediment of water moved through the landscape and shape shape the way you mountains and rivers are which is really cool you know i mean early early days the field. I study which is called joe. Morphology which is study of how landscape changes know it was like mostly just like looking at the landscape interpreting it but now we have computers and satellite imagery so now the scientists have become more quantitative So i make computer simulation models to see where sediment comes from and how you move through the landscape on hillslope and enters the river system. Because if you have to watch that pollution causes turbidity mighty river you. It's dark the some like it. Conducted intuitive and then the entire aquatic ecosystem gets affected by like oxygen and sunlight so we have massive fish kill. That's caused by that. So i i make computer simulation model of that because then we can make predictions. Prediction is is really. You know very difficult to do. I mean we complain about weather forecast because oftentimes they're wrong because very difficult predictive kind of stuff. I make computers cumulation models to predict where sediments moving through the landscape. So that we can inform policymakers on where to put management actions to trump's sediments. So it doesn't get into the river too much so i work in intersectional appliance and policy. That's what i do. Yeah that's like a consulting kind of space. Or what have you that. That that having having background the science and having the background and joe that forecasting is enables one to be to console indirect based on it and i think a lot of people don't understand like how forecasting in how this is what it could be. Looks like as i. I work within data and university. So hey can we do. Some predictive modeling shore also bis could sway drastically so keep that in mind and people. Just look at the charts. Look at the numbers without the context and think that intersection being able to speak on and being like the science important. Yeah but so. If you if you would and i'm going to skip ahead and move my questions around a little bit. Since since you're both in artist anna scientist in which ways of those passions. Like how did they serve each other. How they complementary power they Desperate how are they different. Well you know when. I started painting about seven years ago. It was my niece dirtier into And you know getting a phd. It's really difficult out. You know took me seven and a half years to do it And like thirty or input after doing all my course work and submitting a proposal for research. I feel like i wouldn't really making any progress. Science is can be very very slow and I was kind of frustrated. And i had this canvas that i stretched them on board and i just. I kept carrying a poem from place to place when i moved and didn't do anything with it And i i just started to paint on it And i finish the painting and felt so good so and then i just never stopped so here. I am after seven years of painting that at an efforts painting i kept painting. I try to paint every day and being. Scientists gave me some flexibility. With my time so i can paint. I try to paint every day but mostly weekends. Yeah so in the beginning. I thought there suffered Even though i do lead that painting helped me finish my pc. Because painting helped me you made me realize that you know work is cumulative you know When i started paying when i when i started new painting look like shit you know but i had to believe in myself that i'm gonna turn that shit into gold paintings kind of alchemy like that way. You know you turn nothing into something really beautiful but you wanna look at And i realized the finest similar way in the beginning. I feel like i'm aiming aimlessly progressing. I don't know what kind of data to put together to put together to make meaningful A a conclusion outta there and writing a dissertation. I mean my patient. Almost three hundred pages was really difficult to write the whole thing and but writing is saying you know when you start right something it you know it's crappy you know it doesn't have any thing and then you just have to work on it And it's cumulative that way. So yeah. But now i think there's more connection with ours than science So after i finished my pc. I got a post doctoral fellowship at a at a place called Social environmental synthesis center sink It's it's the research center base in maryland. And it's a research. Dentist founded to promote multidisciplinary research to Addressing bombing problem which which are inherently social problem. And they're really complex and we need multiple scientists to come together And and really try to look at the problem. Multiple this not from not just from environmental science perspective but from social perspective economic perspective in order to find the solution that we can apply and and make it make it work so in that research center. Had you know opportunity to work on that field but we were given opportunity. The post other posts and i were giving up achieving submit a proposal for a workshop so to other pushback tonight Wrote a proposal to investigate how environmental art affect Our attitude towards environmental problems and ultimately.

"Food such a food for you. Thank you for asking that question because food is everything to me. That's i was so excited by this poem. Food is my persona. It doesn't matter if it's like. I'm with just one other person or with five people. I just want to order everything and just like ambien abundance together and just eat till like everyone wants to just sleep and so reading this home in hearing you read it is shes. I wonder if you have the same approach or like yeah. What is food for you. Food is everything for me. I mean like to almost to my detriment but no lake. It's just I love to cook my partner. Angeline is an astonishing cook. And so that's part of our language. I grew up with my grandparents who loves to cook. There was always like to make you know like bone broths and stuff. There is always that smell in the house that was like almost terrible but also so delicious. You know when you know what's coming. Yeah something guided mero just like an all night long all night long cook all night long the stuff and then i think for me a big a big kind of freedom once. I moved away from like a small rural place was like going moving to a place like new york and all of a sudden there was so much food like to to have gone from like not very good although i loved it. Chinese american food in east hampton connecticut. Till like all of us are going to sarah lawrence college and like going to chinatown and like roaming around eating dumplings or a big thing for me. They're just like. I can't even explain and so eating different kinds of animals eating different. I mean just like the freedom of that and then doing that with people. I mean i think one of the first ways i really felt adult was making food with feeble like making pasta for people making lasagna making greek food and then doing stuff like going to dim sum. That has been something through the pandemic. That has been really hard for me. I mean these are first world problems for sure but going through dimsum on the weekends was a big deal to me. And if you had to have a thing where there's like ten twelve people at a table and you're like sucking on chicken fee. And like eating dumpling. And just like it's too spicy for my little periods soul. But like i don't care. I'm gonna suffer later and i just like you know with the bounty. The pleasure big you know going to an italian restaurant getting a ton of pasta and i miss that a lot and it also just taught me about the world. You know like i so much of what i know about other people has to do with what they love to eat now. I am very distracted to sink you about all the food you listed if we were just like somewhere where we could all go right now and just like sit outside and eat sue. What what would our meal be right. Now where would we go anywhere in the planet. I just one pan-fried dumplings honestly now now from a frozen bag no now. My mom's because hers is to healthy. Yes like trashy. Greasy pan-fried dumplings. I love them. Scalding hot for me food is about texture to emma texture. Pers- yeah so. I don't say i want to isaiah. I need a crunchy dessert. Or i need a smooth deserves. A i love eating things like just like raw off the heat converting the roof of my mouth. That's how i know. I'm pretty happy today and i'll remember tomorrow. Sorry we're like so away from the poem. I can't even all i remember the seven things from the poll. I feel like we're right in the poll. Now 'cause i feel like this is what these poems pope to do. And this is i think what ghosts and food and this time does which is like were maybe not like in in a certain part of the politics of the poem but you kind of just walked into the restaurant where i'm waiting for jenny. Which is a little bit. What i hope that the poem will do. I'm really inspired people. Aca conrad and the remarkable poet destiny hempel holy-moly and one win like poets. We're it's not a joke about like the poem. Mix something happen and it's not just like you know what i mean not just something until actual although intellectual things absolutely happened but there's a kind of somatic practice with the palm where it all of a sudden we're in the room together were eating in. The dumplings are steaming. And i think this is another aspect of when i was trying to figure out these poems and i'm still trying to figure them out could the act of saying miss you over and over again and not i miss you but like miss you which is like a real action and then talking about the food and also talking about the body and also you can leave your body behind. Like i don't care. I'd take any incarnation of you. Couldn't like building and building that almost everyone who's listening to it also come in and it doesn't really matter at that point if where we are is the world of the living or not if that makes sense like maybe we're in the ghost restaurant. Maybe i'm not alive anymore by the end of the poem and i've gone to see jenny and we've all come to see jenny at shanghai dumpling on franklin street chapel hill. Maybe i've been able to bring her back from the dead or my grandmother back from the other side and like and they're with us but maybe there's something about just like building space for it almost doesn't even matter because the gate is just open and everyone gets to be who they are and a pulse can do that. I'm sure there's fiction writers listening. Well i don't know if anyone's listening anymore but fiction and nonfiction can do that in certain ways but i do think poems can do. I mean i think that's the place where like poetry spell work magic prayer. Kind of all comes. Daydream comes together whereas like you can make that space upon you can make the portal. I got time so drawn to these miss. You poems that. I feel plopped down somewhere. I'm like oh here i am. Let's see what happens. yeah there. We are altogether. I really curious about the body and these poems. The bodies are ephemeral and concrete. Like they hold so many. What you said was you. Don't care what incarnation this person. It is as long as they show up at one way shape or form and so i really wanna turn to the poem pyramid puzzle. Body sister disappointing. How surprising because they feel like they're the body is inescapable but through the palm it is escape noble and i will love it if it could read for us. Sure one obscure to read. But i'm really excited to have it in poetry. I thank you all for having it. My paramount apostle body sister disappointing. How surprising bled all day stopped bleeding. Some more went to the doctor who reached inside the woman body. I try to live with make peace with but also ignore sad ten my uterus one day the tenant turns out to be the landlord all altay. I wonder what it means o'clock. I know as well as i know anything but.

"A bearer of of my rage. And it's strange because come to terms with my own personal faith. Now as i've gotten older especially as i have a child and don't have an explanation for a lot of things and while i'm still not okay with a lot of what korean christian culture is like. I have found ways to make peace with my own relationship with what i believe. God or the universe is and it's strange though because this next book beyond god doesn't mention god nearly as much as i even though i have a more personal relationship with what i believe is god i think because i am in a place of peace with myself and so i'm not having to process that relationship necessarily as much as i am processing now the relationship with the attachment figures and so that's sort of the way that mike christian experience has affected my writing but you know it does really break my heart when i see it still happening right. My in laws are very much involved in their korean christian community. And every time i talk to them. It's another story of some kind of drama with some some kind of corruption within the church. And it's just it's sad you know that this could have been a safe space for people especially for immigrants and yet it's just like a hot pot of toxicity. Somebody's thank you for sharing that. My secret dream is that someone or we should or. I don't know anybody should start a podcast just talking about the exact phenomena and i was really interested to hear you talk about how god figures dozen figure new work and so could you read the second part of the poem sure. Once i followed a man into a hurricane minutes before it stripped half of manhattan from power. I trailed behind him when the transformer line exploded and the night sky flashed a gas leak..

John Cho Addresses ‘Cowboy Bebop’ Fans Who Think He’s Too Old

"Flicks is live action. Adaptation of the iconic anime cowboy. Bebop arrives this november with john showing the lead role as of spike spiegel. And the actor knew from the start that he's casting would be somewhat controversial. Spike is a twenty-seven-year-old bounty hunter in the cowboy bebop anime cho- turned forty nine years old this summer. The actor was asked by vulture about the cowboy fans upset that the series did not cast a younger actor in the role to which show admitted the biggest fear. That i had was i was too old. I knew people were going to have issues with my age. And i had to get over it. I'm not a person who says age is just a number or whatever it was gonna be harder physically. And i was going to look different than a twenty five year. Old guy show continued at some point. The opportunity is yes or no. Do you wanna do it. And i did want to do it so i wasn't going to stop myself from doing it for anyone. Who believes show is too old to lead cowboy bebop. The actor maintained the series benefits from him. Being an older actor. First of all. I couldn't have done it when i was cast when i was twenty. Seven chou said. I mean maybe i would have been better suited aesthetically or athletically but in terms of my discipline. I am strangely better suited at this age. I don't think i would have done justice. To the emotional depth. We tried to give spike. There's always a trade-off what young men are typically best at as actors is rage and that might have been more pronounced element of the character when i'm better at being older it's showing weakness and vulnerability and love. Those things are more accessible to me. Personally i'd prefer the version. I'm able to show. That's my

You can never do you. Letterman too late you can. It's there's no such thing you can always do it too early so make sure you're ready so i made sure i had tons of training and doing Shows in front of a camera. You know did even improv than some of these other cable things were it was important but not as important Before i did the big ones and yeah. It's it's the scariest thing in the world when you're standing curtain you're getting introduced you're going okay. I got four and a half minutes here going to pretty much dirt back and it's a i would trade up feeling the world though you know. That's that's what i do it. That's why i worked for and every time it's happened You know it's just been great. Well henry what what a what a pleasure it has been to to have you here and we hope you'll come back. And maybe if tennessee ever beats alabama you. Can you can work. Act around that you know what i've already got written eighteen years core evolved. Everything's evolved references. Like mike tyson references. They got an update so henry thanks so much comeback. We absolutely love thank grammy. I'll come back anytime thank you. I love it. You go vol's at the end from henry. We'll take a break thirty minutes remaining here on a thursday afternoon. Listening to the paul. Finebaum show podcast.

Obviously it's city. Worlds and oklahoma is playing in new orleans on opening weekend of the season and we are back and Squirrel is up next From mississippi hello squirrel and I run to new orleans a couple months ago and Got him a little place. Right there between saint charles avenue and magazine straight. No it well. yeah so. And he's at his vaccine. So i guess he can go into saints games so life is good. Life is good. Enjoy henry He he's a really funny guy a couple of friends As the interview is going on about Having had him to certain events. And i was. I was blown away by by him. I i really I'd never talked before and between between east tennessee and arab alabama. That's that's a pretty good repertoire. Didn't have to go to alabama can come up with around the fifty mile radius of knoxville. So he'd never have to leave at little that little one hour drive but no he's pretty funny and you know being a com- a comedian with the that'd be a hard gig nowadays with the political correctness. I tell you what i. I never even dreamed of but i will tell you a story. I didn't event years ago squirrel. It was a big event. A couple of thousand people and the guy said i really liked you but And then when you if you come back next year. We'd like you to tell jokes. I'm going okay. Great so i called a friend of mine. joe hobby. I think he's been on the show before he was a comic writer for for jay leno and a comedian. And so i we work on this because i. i don't like to telling jokes. It's not my ideal. I like to get up and tell stories skills. You've got some comedic so okay. So i said i'll i'll do it. I mean it was worth it. I mean it was a big time. Big time law firm and they had two or three thousand people at this deal and joe and and his partner come up with a joke and he said this is the best joke. We have ever had Leno has killed with it in vegas. He said just opened the event with this joke. And you will not have another problem. Okay you know where this is going. Don't you squirrel probably feel pretty flat. Walk out there in front of two thousand people not a comedian. And i tell this joke. I don't think. I had a single laugh but i will tell you the next hour was maybe one of the most enjoy already already got the check. I knew i was never going back. And everything i told bob. But for some reason it didn't faze me. And i could not some some guy started heckling me which actually have helped the event very much because i began doing what i do best And it but it. What a so. I'll never do that again. I will never. I would never lean on a joke and that was the end of my comedy career. Well you know. I got i got to watch what i say to you. Know and you. And i don't spend a lot of time complementing each other you know. During our calls we have more discussions but one of the things that you told me during our conversation was that he thinks. I'm kind of a found bomba kisser. That was his words. Kind of our buddy. Jim during our company. Yeah but but That's not watch my compliments. But i gotta watch my compliments but you do have some comedic talent. But it's more the sarcastic nature You've got a good sarcastic humor. You can come back with somebody critic quick with usually something and it's pretty smart sarcastic using pretty funny and that's one of the things that initially told me to the show many years ago but Anyway just wanna let you enjoy henry and Thank you probably talents to come out of knoxville. Thanks choral greater yeah. The thing about about comedy. I believe in knowing a number of comedians. It is the the audience is very important. And even as somebody who. I don't do much of it if any of it anymore but i used to do a lot of speaking and you would walk in a room and you look out there and you would know pretty confidently whether it was going to go over well or not. I mean audiences. Either i mean you would think if you pay money to go here comedian. You would want to be entertained. But it's not always true and if you don't have the audience the funniest comedian in the world is not going to be successful in this next car. I think could have been a comic in his youth and may still in his elderly years. Larry is up next area. I got a name for you already. Larry the cable guy my income. Oh my you know. I'm always serious. I know comedy made you know. I do think you do. Good on comedy. Well maybe i need to start thinking about that because this gig based on what some critics are saying is close to the end. No man going brother. I pay paul bomb. I'm kinda tired. I gotta selma bass boat. Man checked out that larry. I just. I ain't got no energy to you know when it's a nice bow out there..

"Princeton is playing this clap. Representation matters margaret. Cho says it so many times in her book. I love that you're just talking about it loud and proud wherever you can because we need to really understand how much representation matters in order to fucking get over our hang up about like hiring enough representation. Yes thank you kristin. I am so in love with you right now. I'm sure margaret. joe would be as well. What did you do next. I waited into step to give peace a chance. How did you wait in while. Linda as you know the. Us announced plans to withdraw from afghanistan. Right before we started living by this book but we are still there now and supposedly will be out by september. We'll see but it hit me. This war has been going on for half of my fricken life. And that means there's a whole generation of children and young adults in afghanistan who have never known their country as a safe place who have never lived in a nation that's not war-torn and it. Just oh my god. The reality of that hit me so hard. Yeah it's fucking mind-blowing. As i said here thinking about it i remember. I was in sixth grade. So someone my age in afghanistan as dealt with it since grade. Yeah and i decided. I need to learn more about what all the young people over. There are going through. And so i read articles. I listen to podcasts. I watch documentaries and here are some of the stats i learned. Oh god this is just terrible. One child in sixteen dies before their fifth birthday which is nine times that of the us. Thirty eight percent of children suffer from stunting due to malnutrition. Forty two percent of children are out of school and seventy six percent of girls. Struggle to read and write twenty. One percent of children are engaged. Child labor instead of learning fifteen percent of people have been forced to flee and conflict. Fifty five percent of people live in poverty just heartbreaking. It was all incredibly upsetting. And i didn't really know what to do with all that i was learning other than to make a donation honestly and so i did. I looked up different organizations. i decided to donate to save the children's efforts in afghanistan. And i'm not sure it's quite what margaret show asked us to do She kind of has the mindset that the pen is mightier than this award. But i decided in my case my credit card was your pen. Wrote a check sort of yes. That's a good way to look at it. I mean if we can flash back to lake. Let's say the nineties when check writing was all the rage. Oh i remember checks. You and i are. Maybe the last generation to remember is going to say. I did have my first wallet. Had like a checkbook colder like because i use checks enough. Yes it's happening. We're all so that's what i did. I think she'd approve. I feel like your awareness is important reading the stats here. Where i'm you literally just educated me like you're spreading than awareness. Hopefully someone listening may learn something and of course like leg. I said you know you're using your pen to write a check and like money literally always helps. It's sad but true right now. What did you hit up after that. I figured since i was already dealing with depressing realities i would do step seven and that is the right to life..

"For me. I have a theory a little bit of a theory. Oh it's it's in sociology and You know there's a recent book by mark peng pod who who talks about how you know. A lot of americans. First experience of tie was through thai food and so because they their first experience of thai culture was through thai food they are conditioned to want things like authenticity and so they understand tie. Americans through that lens of authenticity and so many of the ways in which americans are exposed to asian cultures are through this lens of authenticity. Any any culture right right right immigrant cultures specifically and so like. That's why they expect high americans to know all of these different flavors because you know food is one reason you know. Food is a big way that asian immigrants have kind of navigated and like you know create an existence in america and is like one of the only places in which you know if you're white. You're not familiar with immigrant cultures. That's the place where you touch it. You know there is a kind of. I think there's Part of it is It shows kind of courage to go to the deepest darkest africa you know into the heart of darkness in income. Back alive kind of a thing. Although i will say the flip side of that is i've always felt like as much as maligned as white americans are in in this in this respect They can't be extraordinarily open. In a way that i look back in the country of my birth and i go are koreans. Korean seemed to be comparatively. You know a much more closed off and much less accepting of difference. You know what. I'm saying so that there's the good and the bad here. I should know that. I mean we would not be here all of us me and my family without the kindnesses of specifically white churchgoers you know what i mean. And they're even. I'm not sure what they thought about us. I can't say. And i'm i'm sure there were lots of things they didn't understand. I'm sure there were things that there were suspicious about. But still you know. I owe them some of my sweetest memories. Are you know i would them. Yeah even in the modern day to you mean. We can't waste anyone's goodwill you know. My my my editors white you know the people who hired me at the la times white so so yeah definitely. I mean it's just. It's all a part of like this. Is i guess for for anyone listening from. Is this disclaimer from my for myself. This is all sort of thought exercises for me trying to figure things out as i move forward all right. We got to wrap up this conversation. Unfortunately we need to get to these bad as and confessions that we talked about at the top of the show. Basically we're gonna share a timer thing that's made us feel like we're not asian enough with the idea of critiquing. Why my bad. He didn't confession. Why have so many but This past weekend. I went to Ken king food court to do my corona virus panic buying because they have this A freezer there with a bunch of dumplings and bows and montas. I bought six packs of dumplings a feeling like a king. You know driving back home with all these dumplings in my cooler in my trunk. I get home. I get distracted by something. I leave them in the car. A couple of days later. Discover the melted frozen dumplings in my car. Just so wasteful. You know. I thought about what my mom would say. You know. i thought about what my dad would say. I guess i just felt like a bad asian. Because asians are supposed to be frugal. You know my mom and dad raised me that way and my my parents. When they were kids they still remember being hungry. I only really lost like forty six dollars or something like nine cents based on the the pricing they have at gang gang led like you know it's still hurt to lose that amount of money and yeah. I just felt like such a terrible terrible. My bad asian confession is that. When i was a kid for about ten years i actually played. The japanese. traditional instrument called the koto. The koto is this long wooden stringed zither that you play with ivory picks when you're a kid your grandmother's dress you up in kimonos and you're told to basically channel like a perfect dull as you sit there and perform eye sight read japanese music. I even like sang along phonetically in japanese when i performed and this is something that was a part of my life for a long time growing up but around high school. I chose to stop taking these lessons in order to spend my spare time doing things like playing soccer and those things i also loved does are very much a part of who i am as well but now that i'm older. I kind of regret stopping the koto lessons. I regret losing that part of my life. I still do have my koto at home here with me. And i break it out once a year just to see what i remember if i can still play the songs in read the music and sometimes i think about maybe taking up lessons again But that is one thing that i look back and i. I can see that. When i was that age very specific age specific time in my formative experience i chose to say i want to do something different. I want to explore different part of myself. So that is my fat asian confession. Okay give it to us john. What is your bad. Asian confession I tell why people that. I will take them to koreatown and i and that is a lie i i've never have and i never will why that i don't wanna be anyone sherpa. I don't want to take. I don't wanna participate in this anthropological study. That they're doing. I don't wanna make anyone feel down. They are down or they're not. They can get korean if they want. I don't know why i need to be there. I don't wanna show open any doors for them if no one's opening for them i don't want to force open any door for them. I.

"And i'm married to an asian woman and have We have asian children shockingly and Really yeah so this is the culture is going to be there. Just trust it like it's going to come out and people really People were even interpreting things as asian things. That weren't that we didn't know interesting. We didn't put in there or think about. I felt like it was very asian. American family right. It was yeah is a set in the bay area. Set felt very authentic right. Yeah yeah So i think you know there's a way to get a culture without getting it culture and there's a way to get it race without getting it race. Maybe that's an asian american thing. Maybe that's not an african american thing That maybe that's our journey as a as a culture As a people to you know but That's what works for me. Has worked for me as i move forward and i'm trying to look for things to do. I found that you know. When white writers are tasked with writing for asians even the the the The best ones the most well intentioned ones have difficulty and it really bumps them and the writing becomes very much even if it's not on the even if it's not textual You really get the feeling that the thing that they're pushing most is the race and You know. I think recently made a decision that whatever character i play will be asian because it's me and a really have to step back from it and So i think. I'm trying to avoid things that are written asian because then they'll be false because we don't walk around with that i don't know i mean putting the asian i yeah i don't i mean i mean that makes total sense to me. I mean i used to write about the san gabriel valley monterey park and when i would describe the area like editors would want me to say like. Oh yeah tell say that. There's neon in chinese chinese on the signs and stuff and give them a little of that. Asian flavor the flavor. Yeah yeah and it's just like that's not how they define themselves you know when you when you take that away when a movie like searching kind of just lets you define it yourself. Yeah exactly. it's it's more or the other. The other big picture is the you know. Last component of my most recent component as we said earlier you know. It's a lifelong journey. Sort of unpacking your race and your culture and your parents and all that i think i'm in this phase now especially since two thousand sixteen Of unpacking the other side. Which is what is white you know. And that's i think equally important to understanding to to ourselves understanding. Yeah like what that is because we think that that's normal and were east of normal. Were oriental you know what i'm saying and And so we there's one thing to take pride in being east of normal and now we actually part of the job is to go. There's no center you know. And understanding what that is what normal is defined as like the default defined it how it defined and and i think that's important for asian americans as well. I'm japanese american fourth generation. I don't speak japanese. Although many people have who are not asian have expected that of me in my life. I for sure do not speak korean But love i love movies. I cover movies here of all kinds at the la times. And i've gladly covered bong jun ho's career and parasite but i too had to learn you know the names improper naming conventions of all of the stars and makers of parasite which is something that a lot of people in the media. Don't seem to bother to today. Listen i i'm completely with you. Like it is completely acceptable not to know you guys are american like we know like it's completely acceptable not to know it's Not acceptable to not do. The work of course drives me nuts. I watch a lot of Basketball and these guys on you know on a slovenian name will just butcher the name. And i'm like you know it's your job to announce these players names there's only ten on the court at a time And there's maybe two of them from slovenia you know that's you find out there's probably a guide in the program that you got and just look it up. I don't understand why people don't do that. It's it's insulting. Yeah and you you. You're going to say antetokounmpo you've got to learn how to say no janas entity kupa like you know is not that hard actually. Once when it's really weird and revealing what types of pronunciations people are willing to learn like i can say pro. Shoot though i can say your schedule. I can sit pepperoni timothy. Shell ronin. i do have a beef with restaurants that just say our menus in french. Fuck you italian like that. What if what if a chinese russian chinese out bitch. Oh you put a chinese menu at first people like oh worst. The english menu is something. Must've gone around. Like come on like like italian major like so you may and then like i don't even know ossie. I'm googling i'll let me do. The thought exercise. What is the thing going back to the you know. What's the most authentic sushi place you know. What's the hard most hardcore career. what is authenticity. What is that about i. I mean that's a really big question.

"Welcome back to asian enough. Here's the rest of our conversation with john show. I am curious though when In two thousand sixteen a screenwriter. Name william you created a hashtag in that. Hashtag was starring john and it was basically envisioning in all of these huge. Hollywood marquee films in blockbusters to to ask. Why aren't there more asian american stars getting these sorts of chances. In what was it like for you to till they realize that this was happening strangers. Were were advocating using your face and in championing uis weird A minute was the idea was really cool and what he was saying. I was one hundred percent behind the wheel. You shadow to will you. And he's a really smart smart guy And i thank him for getting that discussion started. It wasn't really about me obviously was As an artist. I don't know whether i was thinking. Or i need to be in the shin or whatever you know what i'm saying i don't have a That's important i guess to some people to In the bigger picture. We need an asian superhero I don't really care about superhero movies personally So that that part of it the political part of it. I'm disconnected from emotionally. And so but that's what he was talking about the political part he wasn't saying john chose should be in a great performance. You know he should work with scorsese or soderbergh. He was saying he should be in the avengers or whatever. And that's an interesting argument. I'm not emotionally connected to that argument. But i get it and i support it. You know what i'm saying. Yeah i mean. I also think the arguments just like john show is like incredibly underrated and i wish that i had seen him on all these movies. Do i i for me. That was like one of the things that spoke to me about that. I thought you were really good as the romantic lead in harold and kumar for example. Right i know like it probably feels weird to get so many props for just getting the girl or whatever like but you know i was definitely one of those guys who kind of giving you the props you like. Yeah kind of made people feel like they could get the girl. I grow growing. I'm in tennessee. Where you know. It wasn't a lot of dating opportunities raisin guys so yeah yeah but how does that make you feel to get like props for that to hear that. Yeah well that's really really cool bums me out. Which is the other side of being being really cool like a bums me out that that that it's informed by that makes me think of you know i always wanted to do a movie as a valentine for asian american men that was Killing people like kill bill action hero. No just a murderous rampage. And because i do feel like asian american men. No one knows this. Except asian. American men At least for portion of our lives we walk around with in our pocket is a clenched fist. And we're ready. We're ready to fight because people have been shitting on our heads all our lives. And like i just feel like that. There is an ultra violent streak in so many asian american men because of that anger because of that emasculation. I mean the ing. I got chills when he said that because like yeah i think angers and natural state for asian american men but also asian american woman. Like you know like it's a different type of anger based on the genders. But you you know you just spend all your life being told that you're something that you're not you're spend your life trying to be bigger than the stereotypes applied. I look around. And i think i see and this is different from our father's our fathers did not grow up with that they they they come here and the experience racism when nobody's changing their minds about who they are you know. My dad is korean. He's a man he's proud of who he is. He knows who he is. And you can ching chung him to death. He doesn't give shit but us his his sons were different. We when we were soft and malleable. We got told we weren't worth anything and then we believe them you know and so it's so then. We grow up with that anger. My dad doesn't have any of that. We wanted to be treated better than you know. Like i think. I want more than to be able to like earn a living and send money home to my family i want. I want citizenship. Like everyone else. Has you know i want. I want identity and person hood you know. That's always complicated too. I mean all these cinematic victories. Also have a kind of you know. I'm not sure what it means for. Asian americans for you and me. Well okay when you took on for example your upcoming big upcoming lead errol in cowboy bebop had he described people who don't know cowboy bebop. What this project is. i don't bother describing it. It's based on a japanese anime. If you know it you'll know it's the best. It's the best because it's hard to say what it is You know you don't know it's a pipe until you look at it and then you got people who don't know what it is at was really weird metaphor people who don't know cowboy. Obviously it's it's it takes place You know in post-apocalyptic galaxy we're bounty hunters And going from job to job And the series is afraid not afraid to To rome you know and and do things that are narrative strange and And the music is incredibly important. Part of it you know which is set him up as a cowboy and A new are figure a detective Yes and so. It's sort of almost Like all my dream roles into one or like all these genres into one role. Why is it important to you to take roles like that. That aren't you. Know in your face about the asian as they aren't identifiably like that you know i don't consider myself. Asian i and the world does or americans do because we're obsessed with that. But i consider myself. I don't know maybe. I mail you know and then husband father son artists in know like seventh or eighth does asian probably in terms of how how i think about myself you know and so i. I suspect that most people are like me and so for you know from a character point of view it seems false for people to be talking about being asian. Or you only do that when you're doing a podcast so narrative i think it doesn't really work well on that's really it and then You know ironically like searching was a movie that didn't can wear it's asianise on enslave and on the other hand. It was incredibly specific. You know we work hard. And i Some mrs but for me. We i was trying to bring a lot of stuff in my personal life into it.

"Like the new. These questions never go away. Yeah it's sometimes like it's it's encouraging in the sense that a multiple generations have dealt with in. Sometimes it's depressing. I think from a perspective as an artist. It's hard to see you. Know what the impact of representation in art is. you know. I know that your roles have all like meant a lot to me personally. Like seeing you and heralding moving. No i mean you're the only guy out there man like there's no one else you know. I grew up in tennessee. Anytime i would see someone asian in popular culture. It's been a long time googling and searching about them and you know as my That experience i had the same experience Minus google but it was so positive to see like george decay on star trek so exciting on the flip side. It was so depressing. To see people. Speaking japanese on mash you know or and all that stuff so scarring it has been a bit of my guy just like imagining myself as twelve years old and going would win that guy appreciate this role. Or would he be bummed out. So i consult my twelve year old self a lot earlier on. There were a lot of things that were borderline. I'd always turned down the the explicitly racist stuff right right off the bat but there were a lot of things that were borderline and So there were. There is like an asian guy network that i would call in and be like okay. So the part is network Guys that went to high school with and then after a while herald from harold and kumar actual herald actual herald. Were were very close. Friends and I like his angle because he's also wants me to succeed. He wants me to make money. So he's a great sounding board. Who's an actual harold. I'm sorry i'm yes. There's an actual gerald My god you should see free baseball. It's amazing i love. Say this is I told him. I was coming here. And i talked. I talked to him about this by him around a by him. What did he say he likes it. But you're saying like even back earlier in your career you would sort of be like. Hey guys what do you think about this. Where's where's the line. Yes you know. We get into the weeds about stereotypes. But like there's there's an anti stereotype that references the stereotype like you could be asian Playboy and if that's played for laughs you go what what are we laughing at our we laughing at the stereotype is just. I'm not playing a stereotype. So it's like what are we doing really here. That's a lot of asian representation. Today is is is sort of the popular culture. That's how they get around it is trying to subvert subvert references stereotype very directly. I think there's a whole process like the stereotypes are applied to you. They hurt you and then you define yourself in relation to the stereotypes and you figure out who you are after all this crap. Is you know off your chest you know. And i think we're we're starting to move into that phase where we're no longer defined by what hurt us. Yeah i'm thinking back to the shane gillis thing mean right like before she was fired from snl his comments may bothered me. I i don't. I didn't even i didn't do much research into it or anything but i read about it in the los angeles times. Oh the record of not thank you let What bothers me about it. And i think what we have to think about is why does he and many comedians. As a matter of fact feel that they can do racist jokes about asians and they get to say. Don't you have a sense of humor. And it makes me think that what they really want to do is do were jokes. But they think. I'm gonna take heat for that. I'll go take it to the wissies. You know the people who won't complain and and we have to. We have to bite you know when that happens and why how come when we say it's not funny. They just tell us we don't have a sense of humor. I mean in a way. I think there's like a weird connection to rape culture to which is like kind of bullying a woman into sex or do you would you What are you frigid. What are you would he uptight you know. Can't you take a joke you know. It's a bullying disguised in this in humor. And i hate it. D- feel like i mean you talk. You talked about your reluctance to use social media to sort of make those kinds of commentaries. But i feel like a lot of your roles are in themselves radical choices. Yeah i mean listen the the experience of watching somebody Watching a story. You can get two people. I frankly am suspicious of the medium The ability of the medium of this electronic medium to change anybody's mind about anything. I could be wrong. It's just that's my observation. Is that no one seems to be changing anyone's mind And then there's just spending time in a place that's not this world and you're leaving your family. You're you're going. you're. I'm leaving this room in going up there and Is that good. I don't know I'm guessing not you know. And i noticed an improvement in my mood when i was doing less of it and alternately you know an increasing anxiety when i was on it thinking about what others thought about me. Total which is a terrible place to be. Especially if.

"Under a rock. Both of those things can be true. Would strange's in this sort of Loops back to our conversation. Earlier about parents chaim. You know i. I noticed i had noticed when i had my son who is first that he was very comfortable among adults. And maybe that's genetic or whatever. But i was trying to figure it out. Why is he so Unafraid of adults. I was so scared of adults as a kid. Maybe it was time to adults particularly friendly. When i was a kid to children but i came up with this other theory which may or may not be true. Which was that. My parents were also afraid of the outside world. They had relationship of fear. These people more powerful. They could take something from us. They could hurt us and so when we went exited our front door went into the world. It was tighten up your apps. Get ready to get punched. Do you think that is because of the journey that they had in life. I'm sure those from real data real life real life experience that showed them. Yes you they got punch in the gut a few times and then they learned to tighten up. I was thinking. I wonder if my son has different relationship to the outside world because strangers come up to his dad and shake his dad's hand and so he may maybe his perception of the world is completely different that the world is a very friendly place. Will your parents told you that are. Are you telling your your children version of that to be afraid. People are gonna take something from you know. I'm i'm trying not to do that. Also your kids see their dads face in movie which is a huge thing. I think for any. We've sheltered our children from my face. They do they not know their dad's a movie star They know that. I'm an actor but we don't take them to premieres or any place. Where anyone's photographing me or they'll visit set sometimes. But that's just a curiosity thing. We love going looking at the props and you know they love my trailer as there's a fridge in their stuff like that but we've been very active very active in trying to prevent them from. What's the reason for that. I'm selfish. I want my relationship. I want them to know me. The first experience and not with the world thinks of me their dad has got to be their dad. There's got to be one way to know me which is as their dead right. You want to have the relationship on your own terms as right. Yeah that must be something that is hard to get when you're so famous and everyone has all of these ideas famous gassing of for like biggest movies well it's it's really interesting i wish. Actually this is a secondary thing like i. We need to have discussions about fame because it is consuming our society. It is our currency people. It's like money now. And people are saving up likes and saving up followers and banking them. It investments you. Know what i'm saying in what i don't know remains to be seen. But people are crewing followers accruing likes accruing thumbs ups and hearts. And they're saving the they'd save Birthday checks and i don't know what it's all about fame is. Everyone has a broadcasting device in their pockets. Everyone is a broadcaster. everyone has access to be famous. All you have to do is have someone punch you in the nuts with on video as long as threes move to los angeles and get an agent or something but nobody knows exactly what fame does because people who are famous. Don't like to talk about being famous as you can tell you know and i'm trying to think more explicitly about it because it is a a driver in our world more than ever ever before and as a platform. Yeah i don't know i mean you know. I have a complicated relationship with that word platform. It's like what i. I've kind of went dark on twitter and instagram for awhile. Part of it was. Everyone wanted me to comment on something. And i'm like. I'm not a politician I don't wanna platform even to some extent. I don't want one And i guess once you build the platform people expect you to come out and say something about everything and in even interpret the absence of of comment as a commentary. But they look to you for answers right. It's not appropriate. You know what i mean like. I'm a guy who puts on makeup. You know you're an actor. I'm an actor. So i i get it and i don't get it you know what i mean But my point is that all of this stuff. We're not talking enough about. It is a beverage that's available to everybody. We have to say what is doing to us. Is that also sort of a strange place to find yourself in. As somebody who came up among this generation of asian american actors and artists and filmmakers at a time when you know like there weren't crazier occasions you know there wasn't parasite winning multiple historic oscars and Like better luck tomorrow. For example had to scrap its way to an independent film release. You know driving audiences Through like community outreach. That kind of thing. You know like you've had that end of the experience and then juxtaposed with the the sort of hollywood side of it. Does that also make it a little bit more complicated. You know in some ways it. It doesn't seem like a lot of progress. It seems like a lot of purpose. But then it doesn't and i don't know what the success of anything what what one thing means for us collectively i mean i guess it gets down to also this the real basic question of asian american identity. Which is that. We're not all asia. Asian is a made up term. You know is a made up group. We did it for political reasons because they all say ching chong where like. We should lock arms. They think we're all the same anyway. Let's lock arms and be a group be a political group and then it's also like an adolescent thing. I think for me. I was as a kid identified as korean. I was told i was korean. And then and then as i became an adult became a teenager was trying to individual it myself from my family i was like i'm going to be asian. Which is sounds more american. I guess or different. But it's less specific it's much more nebulous. So i mean i think that that's the framework for understanding. All this is like does better luck tomorrow. Lead to something else for asians. I don't know yeah. We've seen so many different eras of representation. Like when i saw the movie like chan is missing and so yes. It was made in one thousand nine hundred and china's missing. Is this really interesting when weighing film about It's a mystery story set. Nsf chinatown the questions. They were exploring in china's missing like is being asian giving up all the asian part of yourself and adopting american culture or is it going back to asia or is it this thing you know the questions that were still being raised in nineteen eighty two or still being raised today. And that's the thing that floored me is like oh.

"cho" Discussed on Asian Enough

"Give a replicate and some things that i'm not. That component is something that i'm taking off the table another thing. I'm taking off the table a shame. I mean i feel like that's the cornerstone of my personality and a lot of ways. Shame and i look back and now. I'm trying to remove that cornerstone and what's trying to complete the metaphor. Replace it with a fc kansan styrofoam peanuts that yeah so interesting because we are fed this narrative and then when you grow up you start to interrogate it and you discover that. There's all these holes in your family story the jemma villain yourself like for me. I thought my dad you know. He told me the same thing. We came to america for you. You know and then only like two years ago. I learned that he Was instructed to come to america by his father And that was during the time of the taiwan strait crisis bloomer from taiwan and that was when everyone was afraid that taiwan was gonna get bombed by china and so he came to kind of start a new branch of the family and the us and then essentially failed to bring the rest of the family over because taiwan turned out. Okay you know so that my whole reason for being in this country just like changed at the age of thirty. Now you know I recently Had a visit. My last visit to korea was promote searching in and ended up spending some time with family. My parents by coincidence happened to be visiting. We went out to my grandmother's gravesite with the rest of the family. And which is a korean tradition and learned so many things. I could sense that my father life was driven by the guilt of leaving his mother. You know where is she She was inquiry. She's she never left korea. Yeah the guilt of the strange son immigrant son like that. My my parents feel that. So until if you're leaving your mother you're not going to say to your kids. I came here you know. I wanted to get rich. The things become real. You know And you're kid and use for even for my dad. I feel like the. I'm just list for convenience. They call it a lie but the lie becomes real. Psychologically real for him and we're the reason he can't it's a story you tell yourself every tells themselves story well. Your dad was a minister. That's right yeah. How did that impact. How do you. How do you feel like that shaped you. I mean i. Don't i very curious how your parents reacted when he became an artist. For example you know. I was young enough to where they didn't take it seriously. I think that they're like okay. He's trying something out I didn't think i could be an actor. I didn't think about that. At all. But i was always reader and i was always drawing. So maybe it wasn't that surprising to them. There is something like Also the actual about preaching and you know being sort of immersed in other people's emotional lives and yeah. Did you ever tell him you wanted to be a rockstar. I don't know what they i don't. I'm trying to remember what they know. I don't know to right i did. Yeah no no no no but a lot of your songs. Which are on spotify mina add. They're they're beautiful. This sort of. I don't know how you describe it. But it's like this really melodic pop. Indie rock very introspective. A lot of the songs that i have heard no. It's interesting that i always. I think there's two kinds of music music that you listen to with other people and that's the fun stuff Listen to music. My wife likes. And then i always thought of music is his personal experience like with the headphones in and my favorite songs of the ones. I enjoy the car alone driving. And it's like it's either personal or social. And i guess i was always into the personal stuff and maybe that comes from a religious background too. Because you know i mean. Most of these songs are christian. Songs are look inside you you suck right. You should probably chain shit and in that grand tradition. He started writing songs. Have you ever like has your parents. Do you think your parents like. Watch your movies and your tv shows. Like i ask because like. I don't think my mom's ever read anything. I've written so Yeah i mean they. They go out. They like it I think at the beginning. I always tell the story like when i was doing plays. They were like let we're going to. We're not leaving the house at six thirty and then going to downtown but You know when the korea times ran a small story on me that's when i was legit. That's true validation. Being in the ethnic newspaper. I still get like My in laws japanese. My my wife's grandma used to give me rough shimpo clipping clippings. All the time. I've been trying to make it to the world journal myself in terms of though your career When you you did start out Doing theater with east west players for example which is an institution here in la institution of asian american theatre. And some of your earlier films. Your earliest films are considered. Now i think asian american indie film classic like shopping for fangs or yellow. Or better luck tomorrow but then your big break was in an american pie movie and then movies right. He wants to sequels. And that really seemed to launch your career. Yeah i mean that movie was so widely seen. It's hard to imagine a comedy doing something like that. And two thousand twenty and i'm still recognized for still after all the other things that yeah. Yeah i mean it depends on the countries to you know It depends on whether they've released recently on their cable. Or whatever but yes a lot and it's extraordinary and it it also you know it started off my career in comedy. Which was a place that i didn't i didn't have any particular attraction to. I enjoyed comedies. A lot. I just didn't think of myself as a comedic actor in any way but so i was there for a while doing comedies and it also introduced fame into my life and it was a weird way to start that relationship because of the part because i didn't feel that a match my personality even like it didn't seem of me and not enough guy you don't see him like milk guy number two so I'm really kind of coming to grips now with being unknown person. I mean it's it was such a strange thing. And i don't carry myself particularly well in public as a result i think that why do you. What do you mean by that. You know. I think if i had written if i had Gotten the nobel peace prize and people were on the street nobel peace prize guy high five. I'd be high fiving back. Yeah that's right.

"He's my absolute pleasure to welcome back to johnny gould's jewish state to via tenenbaum. Absolute pleasure to be with you again. You know you are a true free speech. Doyenne and for this particular podcast. I think it's the first thing verson ground rules as you can smoke. That's the first thing eight you're wanting to billion and the second thing is you truly opened my eyes to my own. I think tolerance of jew hate when we first met two years ago thinking because before that time you know. I've been conditioned i think in growing up in the uk in school where they're only three jewish kids to tolerate the what they call politely banter works erm you would call anti semitism and it did overstretched itself from time to time and i think that is a sort of shall we say looking for a better word but would have jimmy cued. I think from a lot of british people. And i think that's what you sean likes this book. Which is finally out in english. That's why it's called the tame taming of the ju. it's not just a take on shakespeare. It's the taming of the jewel. I mean giuseppe. Funding indicated biden. Own amazing to me edo deny or tolerate and sometimes joined together. Fox's would there accuse us we'd the hate us. That was shocking. I mean the fell. Shocking was citizen. This admit is imminent burden. I didn't expect it. I went to britain. Because i'm a tinto naomi's love english data. I said okay. My published opportunity mean sister. Go anywhere you want whatever you would like to go is i like to go to britain. I like to go. i like to see did out. I mean zane ought to do it better than anybody else. That's what i remember. And then the was black seed said. Okay i'll see you two belting stone which one stone i didn't expect anti-semitism and i didn't expect such a contaminating such a contagious. Such deepen. they semitism so deeply rooted. You know it on an island katelyn or in england which is the most important of course a bit of the uk but it was a frightening to sit and what is more fighting. Wants to see the basically. I'll kind of collaborating. Sometimes they had to fight jewish lead. Doesn't seem like law. Your people told me this and that your people told me i interviewed. People not told me are available. The life is a horrible thing so this is the common people and it took time. Tim's admitted but one that gate open has had them open and started talking. Honestly say to me you know. How many times have been told delta jew oh you know let us all kinds of dips and it's like amazing much so and little kits in manchester of hasidic. The auto talks kits in manchester and london will have had acts pelted them only storm so whatever it is i mean is a big addictiveness and we talked to jewish leaders saying even when the time used to say anything against wirelessly well owning two positions if to say one wowed against jimmy coleman only now's opt in the position you know as it became hewison you wayne saying that a one is easy allies. That are not going to be selected you know in a volume label for example district. Tina zero willing to say it was piping to see that one of the most disturbing rates. I think of british antisemitism and this might go around the world as well is. There is a sort of dog whistle so that someone can maintain that they're not anti semitic so someone who is an influence on me. Extreme left and concise something assiduously continuously hard left without. Referencing jews but then. His followers commend dog whistle a really serious anti semitic sort of betrayal of what they think themselves. I'm using an example of a very powerful voice. Which is john bishop. Who has who has three and a half million followers. He prostrate himself in front of ken loach on twitter. He said all this great interpreted it was as though he transferred the word. A jeremy corbyn for ken loach. I would kneel before him. And then if i couldn't anymore i prostrate myself in front of him which set off a huge torrent of jew hate and of course he a month ago on holocaust memorial day. Couldn't believe the terrible tragedies and then this is where the problems lie and that's an eye opener i think for british choosier surprising the anti-semites i mean disgust for britain and coastal are the places. You know that they took very nicely. Buddy dead jews in world war cho- you knows such nice people bubble and so bad and let's give some money to memorize them and and an make any fence you know maybe even endows of comments may be whatever it is making events you know in in a beautiful place to memorize their juice by the juice living was you know i mean it's like at all let's let you know what's album changes on the plane and of course the cord is a polish time. The code is is the stinian am am by itself. You know if you kill by the palestinians you know it doesn't mean that you don't like jews you know if you're critical officially doesn't mean that you're antisemites if you are cup only fizzle and if the only people who care about our justice palestinians because you killed by nobody else. Don't get about. Muslims in china while being tortured by million. Your don't care about syria. Don't care about libya you don't care about lebanon. You don't care about you. Don't even know what happens in yemen. Of course you never heralded by the war in chechnya and and distorted opening their head about anything. Only but it's going to stadiums you know is that there's a problem and they interesting thing when when i went into states and talk to the people and i tied to figure out. Why only this issue bottles you know. Other they show from people is back know underneath it. The other side was fight. Independence genius he. So did choose members alleys jews and a hall of people or some people would say something like you know what you will high. I don't know why feedbacks why feel about palestinians and i don't feel about anybody else. I have to think about it not over the palestinians up. You know it's like when. I wanted to start with like anyone to my my wife. Easy as you mentioned and i went to take a towards kamla sound everything and i'm gone to straight on that and i pick up young people young white folks as they call them. You know students.

What a WoW virtual outbreak taught us about how humans

"Hit last year, people reacted in different ways from complete denial to volunteering to help others. Some people flouted the rules, while others didn't leave the house, and some even used it as an excuse to hurl racist insults and physically assault other people. These actions may have seemed unpredictable. But a group of epidemiologists was not surprised They'd seen this all play out in another pandemic in 2005. One that happened online in a video game called World of Warcraft, players there became infected with the virus due to a glitch in the software. Side fry producer Daniel Peter Smith is here to talk more about that. Hey, Daniel. Hey, John. So briefly. What is World of Warcraft for those who don't know? Yeah, it's one of the biggest online multiplayer games of all time. It's been around since 2004 and basically you're playing in this huge medieval fantasy environment with millions of other people across the world. You can play as an orc made warrior. That kind of thing so kind of dnd stuff. On Deacon, explore the world and fight monsters and go on quest with other people I've heard about it never played myself that this m pretty cool. So how did this all start with the epidemic in the game? Yes. So in 2005 Blizzard, the company who makes world of Warcraft they created a new challenge. And basically was you go to this one area you battle of big villain, which is called a bus. This big snake demon thing that would cast a spell on you. That gave you a kind of infection, And this infection was called corrupted blood and the small basically, just like slowly sapped your health away while you were fighting it. It would obviously affect you in battle. But once you defeated the boss, you could like go out into the main world and you're basically non infected anymore so individual players could get infected while battling the boss. But then how did the spread the other players? Great question. So there was a bug in the software where if you had a pet with you can have these like companion pets. Your pet would also get affected on when you left the area and went back to the main world. Pet continued to carry the corrupted blood infection, and it would spread it to other players and other characters in the game, and they would slowly die. So this is basically a computer virus that was acting like a real virus, right? And this sparked the interest of some epidemiologists who happen to be playing the game at the time, and I talked to Eric Molinski about this. He's the host of the podcast called Imaginary Worlds. Which is a show about how we create these worlds and where we suspend our disbelief. And he reported the story about this outbreak and how studying virtual epidemics can teach us how to deal with real ones. And I started by asking Eric how the virus started to spread in the world, and he told me that in a virtual world, it spreads very easily and very quickly. In the real medieval world, you know, plague would would travel about as fast as it is the horse But you know, in this magical medieval world, you can teleport back to cities. And a lot of these cities have what we call in PCs non playing characters, so it could be like a shopkeeper or guard or, you know, just sort of townsfolk in the background. But they all got infected with this thing. So they were walking around, infecting everybody else. A symptomatically, which is also a very weird thing, which has been which is not supposed to happen. And so that's another way that they disease spread really quickly and like did you have to be like really close to them toe like actually get it like how it works with Cho. But, yeah, Yeah, You definitely need to be close to get to get to them. And also, you know, the longer you play in the game, the more sort of health and wealth you build up. So you you could almost be like the NPC is where you feel. It's equivalent of you have a cough. You know when people get Coben and they say, Oh, it wasn't that bad. It was just like a mild flu. Or maybe somebody has access to, you know, very, very high and medicine. You know, it's different from some of the lower level players that people that just don't have the time to invest that much into their characters and build up. That health and those people were just getting wiped out like crazy, and you would really get sick. I mean, you would just listen. I like about the blood would come out of it wasn't it Wasn't like you just sort of like turned into a skeleton and disappeared. Yeah, that is pretty graphic. So this country attention of some epidemiologists in effect, Furman, who at the time was at Princeton and Eric Lofgren. So they were gamers. Also, they were like, also in World War craft at the time. Yeah, What was fascinating to them was not exactly the way that the virus spread in the game as much as the way people reacted to it, because his epidemiologists they would often do you know models try to figure out how are people going to behave on economist have talked about this lately to that for so long. They're mathematical models would assume that in any situation People would behave what they were considered to be rationally and so with world of Warcraft, Here's a virtual environment where most these characters are being controlled by real people, which meant that they could study the behavior in real time as to how people reacted in the situation like this. It was really fasting to them because they were reacting in ways that no mathematical model would have predicted. Yeah. Can you describe those reactions into some of the amazing similarities to hell? That epidemic mirrored our real life pandemic? No. Sure, So has the menu before the sort of subset of players who were inadvertently responsible for spreading the disease were hunters who they're, you know, they're digital pets got infected, So there was a lot of sort of scapegoating against these, You know hunters, and I mean, it's a much, much more serious situation, real world. But there's a lot of anti Asian racism that you know, immediately started when covert 19 came to the U. S. It is still going on today. There were fake cures being spread around and just Ton of misinformation and conspiracy theories. People thought the company of Blizzard had created it on purpose. Or maybe there was some disgruntled employee who had created it. It was very hard to get correct information in the sea of misinformation. Another thing that was really interesting was that there were people that were good Samaritans people with very high health points. You know, people had a lot of health and wanted to help use their you know, go into infected areas and use magical spells to cure people, But very often they overestimated how healthy there Characters were and then they would get infected well, and then you know, there's a subject you've talked about before on the show Briefers. Um, you know, in this case, you know, it's people that basically have very troll ish behavior online, and there are people that would actually go up and try to infect other people, Which you know doesn't happen very often. You very rarely hear stories about that. But actually, Blizzard wanted people to do social distancing. But you know, in a video game where the whole point is that you get to interact with other people through their avatars. Social distancing is not a fun way to play the game. And they were just a lot of people that simply didn't care. People are flooding the rules. People were being jerks, and then the other people who are taking it very seriously. We're upset, and we're just saying, you know, you're ruining the game for us. This is not a joke for us. And that kind of conflict in terms of you know how seriously do you take it from? How much do you follow the rules? That, you know, had a lot of interesting parallels as well. How How long did the epidemic last in World of Warcraft and how many players got infected? Unless for about a week, which obviously compared to what we've been through doesn't sound like much, but so at the time World War craft had about 6.5 million players around the world and over half of them. About four million were affected by the virus. So it was huge. I mean, you had to just kind of like, you know, escape to a virtual mountain top and let your character just sit there for the whole week. You go to your your virtual cabin in the woods if you wanted to avoid. This thing or just not log on which obviously for you, cos disastrous, All right. It's like, oh, boy. Time to go to the top of a mountain. Do nothing. My favorite game log back in and see if my character is still staring at the sky so the virus is spreading in the game. There's like unchecked spread. People are traveling all over the place, and eventually, things like Stop mirroring. Reality as I understand it, because unlike reality, World War craft has an all powerful game developer named Blizzard, right? Yeah. I mean, this is the thing where you know you wish you were living in a virtual world. They took control of the whole thing there. First. They tried to put in a bunch of patches to stop the virus and that wasn't working, And eventually they had to just reboot the whole system. Yeah. So one of the things I thought was really fascinating about your episode is that the epidemiologists really anticipated this wave of noncompliant behavior that popped up with our current pandemic. I'm going to play this clip from your podcast, imaginary worlds. Epidemiologist Eric Lofgren talking about that, and I think one of the things that we're seeing in parallel is a lot of people don't take infection seriously, if it is not personally a risk for them. So you see a lot of people talking about Corona virus, and I'm like, Well, I'm young. I'm healthy. The mortality rate isn't that high for me. So why should I care? And I think in the corrupted blood case There was a lot of that similar thing where, you know, Okay, This is bad if you're high level, but it's not all that big a deal. But like the server is being destroyed by this epidemic. The economy has been crippled. Everybody can we cooperate for a little bit and get rid of this? Is, I think, sort of the important parallel there. Yeah, it's just incredibly important that epidemiologists are not taken by surprise. To some extent. I mean, obviously they're surprising things about it, but it was not a complete shock to them. And I think because this kind of began to lay the groundwork for epidemiologist understand that people are not going to react like mathematical models and It's an important part of their messaging as well to the public is to is to anticipate that this is gonna happen and again, not be surprised by it. Yeah, we've had quite a few epidemiologist on the show over the past year. And it's almost like they have to be kind of part medical scientist Part social scientist It seems like yeah, they're really inseparable. And again, I've noticed, you know, economists over the years have been talking about this as well that too often that they based things off of these sort of mathematical ideas of what people will do, and people are obviously ah, lot more complicated. It's ironic that what seems like kind of virtual people You know, even though they're controlled by real people is is kind of what made them realize that Do you know what direction was like to this paper when it came out? And if it in the paper had any impact in the scientific community, especially in covert, so was I Guess it is huge. I'm in the paper when when the paper came out, it was huge. Eric Glass granted. Nina for vermin give a lot of talks. It was generally very, very well received paper people were pretty fast in and buy it, and it's and and had a really fun. You know, element do it in terms of video game that I imagine a lot of epidemiologist papers. Don't you know? Don't have so What do you take away from the story after you finished working on it? Well, the thing that I really thought about a lot was what counts is human contact to some extent, you know, that's so interesting to watch. These people interact virtually through this, you know, in in this virtual world because we've all been doing that over the last year. In a way we've all become Maura like players in a video game, you know where we have You know, even when you're on zoom. I mean, you're sort of constantly watching yourself on zoom and it's like there is kind of an avatar version of me that's interacting in this virtual world. And I just I feel like in a way, the whole world has become more like the world of work Craft. Over the last year, and I really began to see that coming when I worked on this episode, and so it's kind of played out exactly the way I thought.

Congress adopts $1.9 trillion stimulus package

"Will listen. I already love you. And now i just i want to kiss you and hug you and squeeze you over the covid relief bill because it really is as joe biden would say a b. Fd right. i mean it is the biggest progressive piece of legislation. Maybe ever right. Well they're saying maybe since the days of lyndon b johnson When so many of our fundamental bills were signed into into law but That's a long time ago on generations. Nerve law have passed. Since since then. And i so excited. And so proud and let your. He's only there in cresent for like a month and a half. I arkle yeah. That's operation warp speed. Yeah i mean honestly the number of vaccinations. Just the i think the amount of hope people are finally feeling. I mean and also just the contrast you said while the gop lear was reading dr seuss. Democrats passed a one point. Nine trillion dollar stimulus bill that will cut child poverty in half and deliver urgently-needed relief on it. Just it's sort of extraordinary that they that not one. Republican voted for a bill. That has you know a in a pandemic that killed five hundred. What twenty five thousand. Americans are more than that. I isn't it the politics over just completely eliminates me. I understand the only grace words. A partisan issue is in the congress. It sow because out in the world In our world The seventy five percent sometimes more in bowling. What this spill need this. Bill appreciated an. It's it's really a sea change in the interpretation of what government means. I think we have passed point. Were you know Government is the problem not the solution. People are looking to cover now and they're gonna get it. Joe biden said help is on the way. And it's it's coming. Yeah vote on this. It's going to be great. You'll think we're in the middle of watching well. My dad's party. I mean won a major party in america. Just commit suicide. I just i mean this. Bill has eighty three percent. I believe last poll. I saw public approval rating on. I mean they're they're hanging onto donald trump who helped them lose the white house the house and the senate who is actively telling people send money to me not to the republican party. I mean what do you make of. What's happened to your colleague here republican colleagues. How do they go home. And they say well yes. I voted against sending you that chuck. I voted against extending unemployment insurance. No your kids are not going to get that tax credit that's a alleviate poverty and we don't want to put food on your table and so we voted. No i i. i don't. I don't know what the you know. The message can possibly be well. As you tweeted representative he said as americans suffer and demand Relief and systemic change republicans across the country of united to suppress the boat. It's disgusting. We must pass the john. Lewis voting rights act. I keep saying. I only anything else matters unless we passed that because these bills are just. They dropped any pretense of voter fraud. They are just absolutely trying to stop. Cut the amount of people that can vote right cutting rolling voting to try to get away with vote by mail. Trying i mean i. I can't even keep up with all the techniques right georgia. They thought well you know that. Sunday voting where black people how souls to the polls that lets them vote. That brings out the vote mark. So let's just get rid of sunday voting. It's so blatant racism The is just shocking really. They don't care though they're shameless. they're totally shameless. Do what they think. They have to do to pick their own voters to limit people's right to vote. It's

The CHO Cell Line From Reliable Workhorse to State-of-the-art Protein Powerhouse

"Welcome to the cell culture dish. Podcast the joseph line from reliable worse to state of the art protein powerhouse. I'm brandy sergeant editor of the cell culture dish joining me. Today is allen dixon. Professor of biology at the manchester institute of biotechnology university of manchester allen describes himself as a molecular cell biologist who thinks of cells as factories that can be used to manufacture life-changing medicines including protein-based biopharmaceuticals viral vectors and modified cells working with industrial and academic collaborators is developed key advances toward the understanding of how a popped toasties quality control mechanisms and genome localization of recombinant genes can influence the efficiency of choice'll systems. His laboratory were very early. Adopters of the application of olmecs approaches to provide molecular profiling of chou cells. And how such information could be used to direct cell engineering toward improve manufacturing processes alan's contribution to the sector was recognized by the award of the peter done health award in two thousand seventeen in addition to his research. Alan teaches undergraduate and postgraduate levels and has held several senior administrative roles at the university of manchester. Welcome to our podcast. Allan thank you for being with us today. Your group has a very long trajectory in bioprocessing research. And fact you've been working quite closely with the subject of our interviews day. The chinese hamster cell line today show cells are the workhorse for the development and manufacturing a biopharmaceutical products but back in nineteen fifty seven when puck managed to isolate and keeping culture. The first show k. Oneself nobody could anticipate this success. I wanted to ask what you think is so special about. Why has it ended up being so successful. Has a really good question to start with. Brandi one special berkshire well. Actually the survived forty to fifty years of use anita. They started off initially being isolated as i'm cells abuse to study cancer and divide very rapidly and a use for a long time in that context but at the same time people develop mutants that enabled them to be used in selection systems to express proteins. So by that amine being able to use a cell line noca- specific genes. They're able to use those same jeans in a vector cassette so they could use that as a marker to look the uptake of a recumbent gene. You know i think they'll janati of the true l. As because it was a. I have the bus cell line. Many groups were up on the built up. Loss of information about how the cells grew. I attended to be very or should we call a very amenable system to generate further mutations. The game the cells different properties that people could use to their own policies so as a first starting point and then i think also because show south started to be used for production proteins. The then became almost accepted. The products that kim from them went through the fda another regulatory authorities on were approved and consequently they the ease of that approval. Meant the others could follow along and also get that product to put if the us true sales as well so the became established. Now i think that's successful for them in terms of their ability to be used by many different groups to make many different types of proteins so it was a rapid growth large amount of information that was gathered about them. The selection markers it could be couple to vectors and protein expression and in the fight. They got regulatory approval. So i think that's a summary of that area who covers what special but there. Also i mean if you want to call them special. They are the million cells the right sorts of processing for the type of products. That might be used as human therapies. An such that also fitted into the special holiday volume for companies in terms of production. Who cell line.

"Cmos such a pleasure to have you here today. Thank you very much sean. It's great to be here. Thank you and so you know you are In from the uk and a love that you know the work you guys are doing from there is translatable. You know the nih and there's a lot of learning that we could do in the us health system and overall just In general across the globe. But you know before we dive into the work that you're doing at impulse than amex tell us a little bit about you and what inspires your work in. Healthcare against cat is eight phil to work in because you cannot do well for our employees for shareholders for the people of the impulse team by doing good for the patients getting the best thing for the patient galloping damage what inspires every day. We have quite a lot of Gauged on our website where patients themselves are talking with them or they spontaneously talked about how we have been able to change. That lives in. This is very motivating. That he's Everybody wants to have professional fulfillment but seeing this patient at being able to play with the grandchildren go shopping. Were their partner win. The davis likud then is something we find very motivating. Yeah for sure. And it's just a an amazing time to be able to do it. We do in health care and so talk to us about your company and how exactly you guys are adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Yes they now makes has developed. Ccm technology which is for patients in with caught fire. We had intervention had feigned grew. Having implantable device is for those patients that have exhausted financial statement by that not yet sick enough to qualify for a heart transplant or a full replacement off the palm of device. This is a lot of patience. Six or seven million patients globally. Roughly one one and a half in the united states and these the hatfield epidemic is growing fast the american heart estimates that is growing aspect four percent but he had a number of grocery four percent but he had are very valid our patients they can walk at most one flight of stairs. They can walk a thousand feet and then they stopped short of breath. They edit three from deep official daily life. They cannot go to church or the synagogue. They cannot go shopping. They cannot spend time with family went. We do is to try to help them to leave the latch that we have developed so extensive clinical trials and genetic development a device that makes them be to enjoy life again and we have immortal that the hope is here and i think this is how we think we're adding value now. We have also shown on many occasions that will reduce there okay. The frequency of their visits to the hospital the space course very much and so we save on resources. We have a detached of technology allows them to go for long without the pledge. Michelle we do. Take into account the economics. We actually value to the system but we also create value to the patients themselves by to join that lives. Now that's fantastic and simos so the so the work you guys doing. Obviously you guys have brought the technology to the us really globally. You're based in europe. But sounds like you're making a big difference here would you say makes. Ccm therapy just different or unique and what it's able to provide to patients show the communist based out of the united states and the technology brain development has been done in the united states. You jesse is unique is that we are helping people through a completely different way before People getting mushroom shorter treatment. Obviously everybody will exist for excitement before they concede that any device but instead of moving to the very invasive transplants ridiculous divides thinks that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars Ways for the patient we have stimulate or show. Take very unique concept we had. We had to develop survey stake in more than twenty years of research and more than obligations that basically trains the myocardium eight single it like when you go to the treadmill and you Start getting exercise overtime over the three months winter. You start feeling better. It's a very similar without device to very simple implant. It's now the fifth generation of the infants advantage simply for forty five minutes at basis typically. Go back out the same day at home and they don't even need anesthesia for implantation. Just like the dacian. This feeling better. They see the effect building up and This is what they consider. Unique is not only that it's a completely different not replacing the pump. Were just training the supporting the pump and training it to make able to deliver the blast at body needs but also that it's a fairly simple process. You know justified the five minute implant. The patient typically has to charge because we usually childhood by any to charge launch a week for forty forty five minutes and we have shown that more than ninety nine and a half percent of patients soundtrack. Because they see improvement cho- i would consider the uniqueness here is the concept itself which is malaysian. But from the patient's standpoint relatively big help for a relatively low invade not very invasive procedure and not quieting loss from this patient other than a weekly detach very good very good and is it charged externally or how how is it. It is a tax completely Just like your to say back. The judging and In new generations of the device which i'm happy to talk we are actually improving what we get out of. The device show not only the patients chancing but also devices being every week so we get out of the typical court lahore liberty three months in check your device which is just a bad into the basin. We have to think it through from the beginning in a way that is convenient to the patient inefficient for the healthcare system.

From Australia to Canada, how Indigenous people are coping with isolation one year into the pandemic

"It has been almost a year since the covid. Nineteen outbreak was declared a pandemic. it's an anniversary. I'm sure many of us are not too happy to celebrate. This year has been a real challenge in the pandemic has fundamentally changed our lives but many folks have found ways to not let isolation get the best of them. I know so many people out there all around the north. Were ready to support you. I think a good storyteller reminds you that all storms pass. We've been here before but we can help to route at resilience and make them more aware of how strong young folks are this week. Unreserved how indigenous people are turning to digital communities storytelling and culture feel connected to squash those isolation blues cleo denny writer richard van camp has essentially been on a one book a year pace for two decades his latest called gathered share some secrets to great storytelling and it includes seven stories. Elders from his community have shared with him. Richard is here with us now to talk about his new book and how storytelling can help fight and banished loneliness especially during this pandemic. he joins me now from edmonton. Welcome back to the show. Richard musi cho- feeling sal. My see my friends thank you. So let's party. yes let's party. So can you tell us about your latest book gather. Oh thank you. Must he chose so. Gather really an exploration of my journey as a storyteller. For those of you. Who don't know my name. Is richard van camp. I m c show denny. I was born and raised in fort. Smith northwest territories treaty. Eight country goes born in nineteen. Seventy one and i was raised in a town. It was. It's the maty capital of the northwest territories if it's paradise schwartzman throws territories officially quadri-lingual so bush cre- dna a french and english spoken at any given time. And when i graduated from high school i ran. I went from hero to zero. Because i had no idea what i wanted to do. No idea at all. I wanted to be a break dancer. I wanted to be a minjah. i was nineteen. I had a mullet. Some pinch hickeys. And i actually had a real existential crisis. I had a midlife crisis at nineteen. Cause i was like what am i gonna do. Who am i supposed to be. And i saw that. They were looking for drivers for the handy bus. They were looking for volunteers. And when i saw that on the green screen in fort smith northwest actors. The bango channel. I realized that that was what i was going to do. I was going to volunteer. I'll start driving the elders around. Because i was a really good canadian. Really good treaty indian. I was a really good person. I was a former. But i was a really poor ki- chou denny. I didn't know anything about our language. I knew a little bit of butter culture through our mother. But you know i was so busy having fun growing up by what i realized when i showed up to begin my apprenticeship as a handy bus driver in fort smith northwest territories to the matriarchs to the lighthouses to the mama. Bear's portsmouth arthritis territories. And i'm talking about irene centers. Dora toronto seraphine evans. Emilia gate tricks. I'm talking about the sweethearts of our community. They could see right away. That i was a really hollow indigenous person culturally and that i was searching and they took me under their wings and it was bingo runs. Hospital runs medical runs. It was trips to cancers in the northern store and trips to the landslide to watch the pelicans return it was through those driving shuttling and careering the royalty of our community wherever they wanted to be that they started sharing their stories with me so gather is really about what i learned. The smartest thing. I ever did belan was i realized a few months into apprenticeship as the handy bus driver. Fort smith risk territories. No one was recording our elders. Nobody because the mistake we make as we think everybody is going to be here forever. And so i remember explicitly having this. Oh my god. If i don't record our elders and get these stories downs. I think we're going to. We're not gonna have this opportunity my message with gatherings. Don't wait to record your heroes. Honor them now.
