Cynthia Choi, Co-Executive Director of Chinese for Affirmative Action
"Cynthia Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you for having me appreciate it, so the President and several conservatives repeatedly referred to the coronavirus as you know the Wuhan buyers Chinese virus, and they've been corrected several times by activists, and by journalists and I remember on one of those occasions. The president shot back and said you know he wasn't being racist, but his referring to the virus in that way has it resulted in increased reports of hate crimes against asian-americans has contributed to that. Do you think in any way well? What we do know is that because of our reporting center through stopping? Stopping pure. Hey, we have I. Ten accounts of really horrific experiences that Asian Americans have encountered and their descriptions of what people have said to them and how they were made to feel and you know we have significant numbers of descriptions that refer to this notion that the virus is from China, the reference around the Chinese virus and Ruhama virus and hating and invoking trump, when they are being verbally a physically attacked, and so we do know that words matter, and the ways in which trump and other elected officials are using their platform to exploit a really challenging time for I, so many of us. To, escape, go. Asians a scapegoat Chinese, and there's a conflation when you scape. Go are blame the Chinese government or China. With attacking Chinese and Asian Americans here I've actually seen reports for children. Children have even been attacked by other children. You know before all the schools were closed and that's just really kind of heartbreaking to hear that. Do we have any data yet or is it too early to data to quantify the increase in hate crimes in relation to this well one thing? I do WanNa make very clear. is We describe these incidents as as hate, incidents many of them don't rise to the level of hate crimes, but I don't want to minimize the hundreds of accounts that we've received today we have about over one thousand nine hundred incidents coming from all over the country, and the descriptions of what's happening to individuals is is really dehumanizing traumatizing in the sense that people feel like they have a target on their back that this is all happening while most of us have been sheltering in place. And that there is clear vitriol animus towards Asian Americans and being for being blamed for either bringing the coronavirus here, having the coronavirus at a time where we need to have empathy and you know we need to really fight this deadly infectious disease. This has been a really harrowing time for Asian Americans. Who feel like they're being targeted? Just because of the way they look and we are getting accounts. Of, vulnerable. Members of our communities so children. elderly women are twice as likely to report incidents that they've experienced and for children I think this is, this is particularly disconcerting, because of course schools closed. You know relatively early on, but even before that time we were getting reports of from parents who said that their children were. Targeted several reports being physically assaulted taunted and just the effects of it the. Psychological impact internalized racism the depression. This desire not to be Asian. And feeling very very hurt. During a very confusing time for children in general I was just curious if there were any reports, or you notice the increases before the coronavirus in given the culture and the climate of this administration. Yes, so organization had been monitoring the US China relations. You know for several years now and as it's been reported U S China. Relations has deteriorated markedly and. Had devastating impacts on Chinese here in the United States, and that's resulted in things lie the Department of Justice and other governmental agencies, targeting Chinese scientists in the private sector, an accusing all Chinese who are here as being potential national security threats. And, we see this through hundreds of cases we know about where Chinese scientists are being investigated are being wrongfully prosecuted in whose lives have been upended in. So this is something that we had been monitoring very closely with and working with individuals and their families who've been directly impacted by this,

"choi" Discussed on KQED Radio
"An enjoyment. As for Choi, a senior, being a vegetarian never crossed his mind. It didn't fit with his image of himself. When you'd say vegetarian, I think somebody skinny. The mind is a little eccentric. Somebody that just horse the very thought of their teeth tearing apart flesh. Are eating anything that once had a mother joyous Sr says his love freighting Me can be traced back to his mom, Lucille, who just happened to be sitting right beside him, I guess. I'm the guilty party with the meat for every meal and sometimes to meets, Lucille seemed to pinpoint what everyone else was hinting at choice. Reasons to stop eating meat came from outside of the family. Well, I felt that it was because of the environment. He was in the school he attended. Those kids in that school. Lot ofwork eccentric. They were different. They you know, these are the people. He was around all the time. It didn't bother me. I didn't think it was gonna last. But it's been years now and here's where it gets interesting. Lucille starts talking about that one Thanksgiving, she mentions how much meat red. His dad's for Thanksgiving and way had everything didn't everything I didn't know He didn't eat any meat that day. But then seal starts talking about her admiration for Choi's willpower. That's the moment she gets emotional. He's really off, disciplined himself, so I'm proud of it. Really proud of him. I knew Lucy A wasn't just talking about choice ability to forgo mean Thanksgiving. She was talking about her pride for him. Graduating. And maybe that was the point. Whose choice willpower that allowed him to be a vegetarian, Exact same willpower that made him succeed as a student and his dad felt the same way. I commend his discipline to abstain from eating meat. Choi a show that his decision to go meatless wasn't a fluke. Similarly, being gay was not a phase feels like he finally convinced his family of that. I think they were ready to believe me. They were ready to really take what I had to say seriously and how Identify and how I perceive myself. I think the whole narrative for them was how he's just confused. And I think a lot of other people growing up in that kind of context here that throughout their whole life and you that now it would seem my confusion. It would seem like he knows he hasn't He's has no, you know, He's an accomplished person, so he knows what he wants. And who is It seemed to try and that is that accepted his sexuality. But that doesn't mean his dad ever brought it up. During the time he was in town. I feel like his way of talking about it was being nice being loving being himself. And that was enough was especially touched. By the way his dad introduced himself to Nick. It happened right after the graduation ceremony. It was the first time Choi and his dad had seen each other since Thanksgiving. And you know, I hugged him. And I hope my step Mom, my little sister. Then, after hugging all them, he went right over to me and said, You must be neck and shook his hand. And it was like Most were leaving for feeling ever. And even my mom racer eyes rows. It was like less than expected matter. After graduation, His dad invited Choi and Nick out ice cream. Gioia said. Its actions like these that let him know everything was all right. Sometimes when you don't have the words to tell someone, you love them. You do the next best thing you stuff their face. That story was from an episode of the podcast from Our Dear Friends selling his alliance..
The Secret History of the Korean Bat Flip
"Can you explain in your own words? What a best slip actually is so normally. When a baseball player has a big hit he just kinda gently lays down his right and continues on his way down the base path. But sometimes that doesn't happen sometimes. A hitter is very proud and here. She will watch the ball takeoff and sometimes they'll pause sometimes. They'll do this while they're running. But instead of gently laying down the bet they will launch it into space. There are many different ways of doing this. It can be a flick of the wrist. It can be a throw a defiant curl. Perhaps the bat can travel feet. The back can travel very far but often it sort of twirls through the air majestically like a baton and flip is it's almost like spiking a football Pablo AIDS Celera Tori gesture and as you know. This is something that is taboo. In the United States in major league. Baseball violates the unwritten rules and executing this maneuver will often result in a hitter. Getting next time he's up but in Korea. Backflips are not only accepted. There are also extremely common. That was yes. Our Own Mina cards describing a unique feature of baseball in Korea. The Korean baseball starts it season today as one of the only pro leagues on earth playing amid this pandemic and you'll be able to watch those games on ESPN. So since you might just see. K B O Player flip is bat. I asked me to be a guest on her own show to share my favorite story that she has ever written on why Korean players love to flip their bats. And how it start. I'm Pablo Torre. Tuesday may fifth this is espn daily presented by marathon. I feel insane power right now. I don't know how I feel about this. Meantime is a senior writer for ESPN and the host of this podcast ESPN daily. I am the captain. Now you will feel how I want you to feel. I think is how this works. People can't see this but Pablo was doing the thing where he points his fingers at his eyes and then he's pointing them at my eyes and it's it's very upsetting. So how did the story which I love so much? Actually come about what it was. I think the spring or early summer of two thousand sixteen which is important because we are coming off of the two thousand fifteen. Mlb playoffs whereas. I'm sure you will remember Joey. Batista flipped his Bat. Which feels almost like. I'm understanding what he did after a home run in the AL between the Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers and there were much hand wringing and commentary debate as a result of that critics called the Bat Slip Disrespectful. Not only to the opposing pitcher. Button the game in general if I were a player I wouldn't do that. The fact that a matter is what he did did not offend you. Just don't sit. There is flip your badge especially in the seventh inning but throughout this time and before that there were these videos of backflips coming from Korea. Right ed where Korean baseball players were flipping their bats do as defiantly as Batista and with great joy and style and panache. These videos had gone viral social media. Just so I started looking to a little bit. There's a it was an account on twitter. A website called my K B O. Run by a Korean American guy named Dan Kurtz and so he was sending them out and then they would go. Viral asked him how he got into it. He used to live in Korea. He was huge B O. Fan Korean baseball organization. But then I asked him okay. So why why are they so common in Korea? Why is this normal there? Why our guys not getting drilled in the head and? He didn't know and super intrigued by that. So I got in touch with another Korean baseball expert commentator for the O named Daniel Kim who is based in Korea and he had so many great stories about that flips and what not they there and how they were so common but he also didn't know why or where it started and he told me you should just come here and figure it out. So that's what I did so you actually go to Korea and this. I remember I remember it sounding like one of the great expense report boondoggles ever but you actually go to Korea with Mickey and your story begins in Bussan right and so what you're actually find when you travel across the ocean and get there so we went to Poussin which is extremely large seaside city on the southern tip of South Korea so they have a very popular team the low tae giants and the first thing we do. Is We go to a game at the stadium and it was revelatory cream. It is just crazy crowds. They're much younger than American crowds and they are cheering and dancing and going nuts. And they're they're drinking beer. I guess that's also different. They're all these events. There are cheerleaders cheer master and they're standing on a platform and it is just so much fun. There's an American Fan Mickey and I met at the first game that carry my her and he told us. Mlb is like opera and K B O is like rock and roll so were there and we're having a great time and all of a sudden this player who we. I'd seen before because I had seen of backflips name was Choi Jin Sook and public. He is enormous. That's just the only way to describe is an enormous? He would be so he comes out and his song is Elmo Maceo shots just were not I remember that
'Why We Swim' Looks For Answers In People And Places Across The Globe

Water why we swim is her latest book which Texas from Ponds Pools to surfers racers and a few who have survived icy currents Bonnie Soy who writes frequently for the New York Times in California Sunday magazine. Join just for more home in Berkeley California. Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks so much for having me Scott. You begin with an amazing story about a man whose name I will not chance to even try and say March Eleven nineteen eighty-four what happened on this planet. Good Liquor Thorson. He's an Icelandic fishermen and fishing trawler with his crew. It's calm waters it's cold it's forty one degrees and the boat overturns with forty one degree water within twenty to thirty minutes we die from hypothermia but he did not everyone else did and he ended up swimming six hours and when he finally got to the hospital the doctors weren't able to discern his heartbeat or read his temperature on the thermometer but he didn't show any signs of hypothermia and he was only a little bit dehydrated. He was a strong swimmer certainly but was he also saved by his own biology. He was like the story very much. Because it is this the distillation of what makes swimming so special for humans. We have to learn how to swim. we're not born knowing how to do it instinctively and yet there are sort of traces of that evolutionary past still within us that our evolutionary past that came from the sea and so with good liquor for. Thorson turns out that his body fat was two to three times normal human thickness and more solid and so he resembled a Marine Mammal. More than terrestrial mammal. And that saved him. Did you grow up feeling? Pull into the even. If it was only Jones Beach in New York I did. I mean my family origin story is at my parents met no swimming pool in Hong Kong. We grew up with swimming family and so we grew up at Jones beach in the pool. Lifeguards swim team. I just always remember feeling more comfortable and happy in the water actually than on land. I mean there's just a sense of magic that you get from being in the water and buoyancy that you just don't have on land you in this book talk to swimmers all over the world right nearby you though you you swim San Francisco Bay without a wet suit and there are people including I gather you who believe that's actually good for you in all ways it can be. I mean I have also talked to scientists and researchers who say cardiovascular risk. Don't go into sudden shock cold water because it could stop your heart that aside a wr decided there are benefits to cold water immersion. And there's been quite a bit of research in recent years where your dopamine levels go up in your over time that your cardiovascular system is strengthened and you know there are people there are things that we knew from across cultures around the world that there was a water cure there. Was you know jumping in cold? Water was good for you and jumping in hot water and then jumping into cold water and so we didn't know why exactly in the science kinda starting to catch up. What is this Brown fat you talk about in this book. Well this was really interesting. I did not know about Brown fat until I started swimming with a Dolphin Club swimmers in San Francisco Bay and so I went to ucsf to talk to the foremost researchers in Brown fat and it turns out that mammals are born with two kinds of white fat which we all know about the energy stores of our bodies and Brown fat which actually Burns and produces heat energy. We kind of start to lose it as we get older but there are ways to do what's called the Browning of white fat which is to kind of turn it into energy burning tissue. That fat is called Beige Fat. And so what? Kind of encourages. The development of beige fat is cold water exposure and exercise among other things. But those have been proven to be causing this change in our bodies. Wonder if you have any words for people who aren't able to swim these days you know. The water is a draw for us no matter what and so even if you can't get in the water if you can walk near it can look at. It can see it can You know have some what a wall Nichols calls domestic waters in your house and you know. Take about the shower. Just look at imagery watches surf movie. I mean those things. Make a difference for our souls and our the way our bodies and brains work. Click we respond to those set points in the environment and even if we can't get in the waters right now you know the ocean will be waiting for us.

Renoir one may or some of those medications may cause side effects on particularly individual and we are actually trying to figure out how to love Test Right do genetic testing to To apply to that we're still. We're still not there in my opinion but it's getting it's getting more accurate. Am I second questions because you said you have a stressful job? How much of an impact does a lot of people think about Diet and exercise? How much of a physical impact because stressing is a physical thing? Right you get in the gym you get in the Treadmill Cam physically moving right physically moving this way to bench press room physically putting this food in my mouth stresses sort of conceptual for a lot of people. How much of a physical impact distress actually have on health because of stress? We know that will it will decrease the immune system Stress with decreased immune system. So obviously if your immune system is lower than You're more likely to catch the virus. Not just coronavirus but any other virus infections. Yeah but this podcast will be titled About Coronas. Because that's what sells so that's what we're talking about it. Who Cares about reading the old normal flu so so that's that's known right in the medical field. I mean that's a physical observation. Stress LOWERS IMMUNITY. That can be quantified. Yes and I guess what other inclosing here? What other tips would you tell we get it? Wash your hands social distancing but is there anything else that you think. Maybe some people can take extra steps or they're or they're missing either Whether it's lowering stress. Whether are there any supplements or anything that you think might be not? We're not saying this is a cure but is there anything that you would also advise on top as supplementary measures for people to take precautions there are some. There are some data or suggestion that The zinc may help because there are some status or done a word. The ZINC has shown to slow down the replication the RN eight from the virus. Okay intracellular replication so the zinc potentially may help But there's no absolute data that says he does or the Kobe nineteen but generally speaking. It may help so sure. It's not going to hurt to take some zinc supplement. Okay and there were some initial of that anti retroviral medication. Hiv medications Were used with some success in treating the patient but doesn't a hospital right or And medications such as a which is a hydraulic win. Dave also used that in South Korea and in China to treat the severe cases. Why just read about that today? And that's relatively new. How does that work in this anti malaria medication? Because it seems like there's a lot of promise there and it's a little weird to me that they've been using it for a while overseas and it hasn't really been discussed until this current twenty four hour news cycle. There is some mechanism apparently the chloroquine or the hydroxy clerk. Win May assist in the transport of the zinc from extra cellular to intracellular. Were this needed to stop the replication of the virus. But that might be the mechanism to. I'm not exactly sure but that's a that may be a mechanism but they have been using it to some degree of success. Correct well at least the report from South Korea and China. Well I trusted report more from South Korea and China China South Korea.

threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

Several States Looking To Shift Recycling Costs Back To Manufacturers
"Disposing of voice can be complicated. Does it go in the recycling bin or the trash and who pays for it? That's become a hot button issue for cities across the country because those cities bear the brunt of the cost so now lawmakers in several states including Maine are considering laws that would shift the recycling and disposal costs of products back to the companies. That make them. It's called extended producer responsibility or Apr Choi Moon the Sustainability Coordinator in Portland. Maine joins us now to explain. Good Morning Good Morning. So what does through some of the problems that? Portland's having with with recycling right well. A lot of people are aware that recycling markets have been challenged in the last few years basically because of some changes in the international market with China Shutting the door for most products Some places are experiencing difficulty even moving Products to the market So costs for municipalities. Are rising rapidly in some communities. The price that they have to pay to the recycling plant is more than they have to pay to dispose of their trash. How much does this all cost? The city so In our case our recycling costs have risen over two hundred thousand dollars in the past year So it's you know it's a pretty significant jump from zero which we used to. We had an agreement with our recycling facility that we didn't make any revenue but we didn't have to pay any costs. I mean I buy things that are packaged in plastic and cardboard and parts of it are clean parts of it dirty and it's kind of hard to figure out how to throw it away properly but also how did it become the responsibility of the consumer to not only throw it out believe but basically pay for it. Yeah no that's exactly The point I think that You know Portland. And the communities are supporting on the extended responsibility hearing me and trying to make We have city employees vehicles ago and pick it up and take it to the recycling plant and waste to energy facility But that's the cost borne entirely by the local tax payers Despite the fact that the you know the goods that are being disposed of are produced and packaged by some of the largest brands in the world. These companies supportive of a bill like this that would put the the cost on them No I think you know it's a change here in the United States particularly but if you look at other parts of the world you know all of Europe has Ep Are we're maybe the first state in the US really pushing hard at this. So is the goal to get the manufacturer to change the way. A package is as well absolutely currently the producers. You know lack any real incentive to make sure that the products they make are fully recyclable. They are thoughtful about the amount and type of packaging. They use You know if they're going to be responsible for the costs of them they're more apt to make cost of Hanley and disposing them less expensive now. Portland's the biggest city in May but what about smaller cities or towns that don't have the resources Portland might have. How how does it work there? I think This type of legislation will benefit rural communities especially on a percentage basis. Uh small community spends more on solid. Waste GonNA BE CYCLING COSTS THAN WE DO And many small communities Trashing handling waste and recycling and trashes. And it's you know the second most expensive line item in their budgets after school so So it It would be a great benefit for or small communities as well that was Troy Moon Sustainability Coordinator of the city of Portland name. Thank you so much
Jeff & Phil Discuss Parasite's Historic Night at the Oscars
"Fans of the show know that we are. We are huge fans of the movie parasite Peres parasite parasite and this having this three weeks ago. Right but we are still feeling the glow off of parasites Huge died at the Oscars. The sweep it was. Yeah it was parasites just Night to shine in every major category was nominated was the story. I mean it was like the it was like this year's like every every Oscar. Your this is the story that comes out of it but it was like it's about this movie from South Korea coming and just blowing everybody away. I mean that's It's it's just an undeniably good film. And so I think it got. It's one of those. He's going Oscars where you know it. It was up all these major awards and certainly would get the foreign language or whatever. It's called the national feature right. Everyone's like that's you know that's a foregone conclusion but a lot of people were like. It should win best picture. It should win best director probably like maybe to invest director. But if there's probably not GONNA win best feature. That has never actually happened before right. We're going from never having seen a Korean film nominated for anything. Yeah right in the past and then all of a sudden having this one film win best picture best director best screenplay best original screenplay right and then also best or national feature and every single time the build continued with bond coming out again and again to thank everybody and probably get increasingly drunk. Charming is held by the way this guy I mean. He knew how to do award season like that whole circuit right but then every time we got up on stage is like through another charmer. Zinger at the audience. In Your Life. How can you give this guy all the awards you know? He's like unaffected. He's got a quirky sense of humor. I wanted to also shout out his interpreter and his interpreter. Sharon Choi is now the toast issues. I mean yeah she over. The course of the award season became also like a sort of minor celebrity in her own right right and so gained fan following. So I'm a fan. I'm if anybody else knows her we'd love to have her as a guest on the show hundred yet honestly I'm a fan of like just pretty much. Everybody who would anything into that movie? Yeah parasites key grips. Yeah best graphs. You know it's like it was. It was an end to end. Just glory of a film in so many ways and I think the thing that that it's most staggering for me is the degree to which I did not believe this was going to occur degree to which I was already pre apologizing on behalf of America and this this local awards show the Oscars because it seems so likely that the you know decades and decades of racist exclusion of Asian and asian-american stuff was going to continue and It just blew my face my skull. You know I I also was like I don't know by the time. Oscar night rolled around. I think people were pretty stoked about it about parasite a fever kind of hit the town And I'm speaking of someone who live in Los Angeles. So there's I mean like we marinate it. There's a there's they say that They're all these different. They're only there. Are there many seasons? But there's a war season so I was I was I don't know but I'd love allowed myself to feel like maybe this could happen. And then yeah and this probably setting myself up for complete crushing disappointment. And then I'd have something to complain about at the new Oscar but holy shit you know like at the end of the night and you're like Oh my God. There's a whole giant group of Korean setting on Stage Roy out. This is amazing. I believe Koreatown was was lit I mean my understanding is that bong the rest of the cast and crew did not make it to the Designated Party. That was until like one forty six. Am or something like that and then hit creatine afterwards. Yeah reporting is reported that they they shut down a restaurant and basically was there till six in the morning and well you know they deserved it and every every since I obviously was not an entirely undiluted moment of joy because you know it's something we talked about before but The awards went to Bong and went to the movie. They did not go to the actors deserved across the board. And the ensemble is so incredibly good and such a huge part of making this movie work yet. None of them were were recognized with a nomination individually right right right. I mean that's and that's been A. That's a trend. I mean any. Somebody pointed out that any any film that has been had nominated for multiple awards at the Oscars almost all of them have have been devoid of nominations for the actors right from Crouching Tiger to everything back to the last emperor saga millionaire life of Pi. It's like this is not. This is not a coincidence. Know what I mean so there is. There's something here where Asian performers Asian bodies are sort of like are invisible. Actually when it comes to sort of be recognized in this way I totally agree. I feel like there are a lot of reasons for it down to the sort of feeling in some ways that Asian films genre right even disregard. What kind of films are they actually are the the idea that Asian film is Genre? Not just Korean film or Japanese film attorneys when whatever but the Asian the relegates them to a category and a specific category that essentially flattens out the contributions required to make the film film right. Now I say this in part because I feel like the biggest reason these actors were not being reckoned. They're two huge reasons. Right one is that they were unfamiliar to Hollywood. Yeah as actress themselves we know. Hollywood is kind of a clubby place. Yeah if you've been nominated before you're more likely to be nominated again if you know. There's just a whole sense of expectation in the game right which is just like a crime considering someone like so gung. Ho is like you know. He's a national treasure. It right yeah. He's got a huge cannon of Eric shows an incredible amount of rain and yet I think the way they they see him as he did a great job in the sort of supporting actor role as part of an ensemble right like his own. Individual performance gets flattened out again. It's GonNa it's GonNa be funny because a lot of people are going to start like sort of discount on their path of discovering Korean cinema. Right this dude is in every movie for twenty years. But it's too late at least for for this award season but the other reason frankly is. I don't think that people know how to pronounce. People's names I or or write them properly and they've as a result and also frankly they don't speak English fluently in some cases loonies other people and it means that it takes more effort. You can actually give them press i. It was easier. I think for for Neon to sort of hype the film overall as a phenomenon. Then it was to actually try to do a serious effort to to get you know acting awards and I'm not putting it on them. Yeah Sort wasn't it wasn't a neon Yeah it would have been so you know. I'm not putting on them. But the way that the press works is Kinda need to be fed and if it's not easy for them to eat if they have to actually shell the shrimp Kinda pull the meat out of the crab legs. Then they won't eat it regards. How great the buffets metaphorically but they did walk away with the SAG. I mean they on some the Tom Board. Yeah but that's I recognize as actors. I mean it's recognizing their good actors is not recognizing collectively. That good acting happen right right. But it wasn't recognizing them as individuals being this stripping their individual Surv- identities outright. Yes it was applauding the Asians. Yeah and again. It's great and you know. I'm glad that they actually got that recognition collectively but let's also acknowledge that it's not just them but there were many performances by Asian actors in predominantly non English speaking films that effectively went right under the radar for the Academy Award

"choi" Discussed on The Poetry Magazine Podcast
"We spoke with Franny Choi about a series of poems titled Handle Abbasid Aryan Hunger this sort of notoriously easy to learn because because it was invented by a group of Linguists Hongo. The Korean alphabet was invented in the fourteenth forties to replace the use of traditional Chinese characters. I learned it before learned English. And I'm a writer who grew up in an immigrant family for most of my life. I've taken a lot of pride in mastering English and that mastery kind of comes at the expense of mastery over my heritage language. This poem MS trying to put both of those in the same room and see what happens. The poem is written as an apposite. Derian a form that dates back to ancient Semitic medic texts the ABC. Darren pretty simple form. Where the first letter of every line corresponds to a letter in the alphabet so the first line starts with a the second line starts with be etcetera CETERA? And so this is a palm that takes the form of the ABC Darian and adapts it to work with the Korean alphabet which has fourteen consonants. The voice says she wanted to prioritize clarity inherent in Hungary to sign Asian cultures are seen as sort of like inscrutable and and mysterious. I think by the West and I remember in high school. There was a period of time when a group of boys got very into making this joke of calling hauling Asian languages like geometry. You know because it was just like shapes like weird shapes that don't look like they mean anything it was funny to Think about my languages being so foreign and alien and impossible to learn when it was designed so that anybody could learn in it in like one day. I don't know it just made me think a lot about how much effort is put into trying to understand another human. Here's for any joy reading HENGEL ABBASID ARYAN Genghis Khan. My father says using soft g never saw our peninsula with his own eyes. Don't quote me on that. Recall isn't my strong suit. I've convinced myself. Memorizing dates for for example is outmoded better to learn the overall movements social conventions rising and falling empires and. They're changing mascots. John Jesus sired so many. They say his children's Children's Children's genes sewed an entire continent of grasslands. If you press your ear to my blood's topography you'll hear hooves pounding though. I can't remember when it started or Whose King it is coming in the distance? There's so much in this poem concerning language and Empire spoken versus Written Language Memory and not remembering even down down to the kind of skeleton or ghost like vestige of the sonnet form in in this particular poem which is fourteen lines like Kasan it as the sonnet turns and and does some sort of interesting switching and pivoting he can see particular moments moments in. This poem is well when the momentum turns even as this poem is very much. Its own meditation meditation. Yeah you know the structure of this poem as an Abbasid Derian to and thinking about the poems emphasis on recall and memorization and remembering and not being able to remember and that seems to interact really interestingly with the Abbasid Aaron here because it's it's a form that's almost kind of like pneumonic device you can use the alphabet knowing that each line starts with a particular sound or continent to help remember. Remember the poem and so this poem is both in its form and content struggling with. How do I remember my heritage and also how how do I bring it into a new form? How do I combine my different experiences and different histories into something? That's memorable that question of what's memorable memorable is really the foundation of the poem and actually so much else that comes along with it because if you think about it it's it's almost impossible to remember when you come by language or a language especially when you're young you know you may be multi-lingual multi-lingual I was when I was young and I don't like most people I just don't remember a thing about it so like on the one hand you can remember being in school and learning to write the letters of the alphabet. I think that's probably inexperienced that people have in many cultures if not most of them. But that's like a different from process in it strikes me thinking about this poem that the Difference Between Mastering Alphabet in terms of writing something and having a memory Marie of language and Memory Language that accommodates memory is much more mysterious and where they join up in a place like upon is a sort of fusion of these odd facts of how we grow into our languages and cultures. It is a process process where you know memories are inherently part of it. But you can't remember them. I can't remember when it started. Or whose king is coming in the distance to me. Those lines are beautiful way to evoke that process of inheriting something without knowing the details or even the right vocabulary and spelling palling for certain kinds of things because those things change as as individual people do who pass things along impasse things on it sort of it's an unbroken chain but it's not a chain of consistency Those ending lions really speak to the inexorability ability of empire. You know the notion of not being able to remember when it started those horse. HOVE's or WHO's king it is is coming in the distance. The idea that this is a cycle of empire that is continued repeated. What really stood Out To me as being also interesting in the ending was who's king. It is was very fascinating to me as opposed to saying something something like which king is. It's whose king it is just with that possessive Pronoun there. It really makes you think about the people the populace who are being ruled by this particular king. So there's this moment men of a sense of people and crowds and lives that you get just condensed into that. One possessive Pronoun that the speaker. The I also feels a part of because she or the speaker has experienced asked this in many different ways with language with the memories and the non memories and even learning about history from the father. Who is referenced in the first line of the politics of that a really sort of deepen interesting they? There used to be a say in the sixties and seventies at least theories of linguistics and anthropology that proposed the idea that language was invented entity way to enslave people. You know that the language literally comes within is a function of power in his used to spread that power which is one way of connecting. People is not always a good way but I like how this this poem kind of. Does that because even the way you pronounce in the name you know of an important authoritative figure in history you know with the soft. G is very witty because like there there was no softness about that character but like how you say. His name is something that Westerners at least trip over constantly. You know like even you know the way. Are you pronounce a name. The name of a well known figure in history sort of distracts you from the survival of that name despite. Oh you know all of the passage of time and the changes the occurring cultures and then moving from that just the way you say that name to something about seeing seeing your own peninsula with your own eyes. I mean I mean our lineage. Our traditions our memories are not always literal. And that's what this poem reminds us of so deftly deftly. I mean you can belong to a place without necessarily having seen with your own eyes because you your eyes and everything else you have descended from that lineage lineage from the narratives that come with it and you can rule a place to without ever having seen it and that would be the flip upside of. What's happening too? Yeah I mean it's interesting just the kind of almost genetic memory that's being considered here in sort of both both sides of that. Yeah I like fat emphasis there in the middle of the poem about you. Know his children's Children's it's children jeans soden entire continent of grasslands. This poem really interacts with distance in so many beautiful ways and I think that's one way of sort of articulating the genetic and time based distance that Genghis Khan had from three of the land that he ruled the fact that even his children's Children's children populate an entire area that maybe he saw only briefly or never at all like she was saying about the Pencil. Here in the blood which is remarkable Erkaban. Because when you think about the power of those horses in the conquest that those who F- beats made possible through ranging over wide distances offenses and and sort of spreading things around. You know in a funny way like those historical facts vanish. But there. There is a survival of the legacy of this kind of conquest. That is much more sort of subtle and alive than history itself. The sledge's like pounding away in your blood long after the sounds of the actual of beats of dissipated.

"Important to grapple with and really hard to grapple with this idea the fake worldliness which doesn't feel fake To you a person that age at least as as somebody who was once that age I remember it not feeling fake at all. I felt very very very much at the age of fourteen. Fifteen sixteen as if I was in charge of myself as if I had really great judgment as if I had enough experience to really know what I was doing and also I I remember distinctly feeling that it was important for me to be able to exercise choices about what what what I did and who with so when you when you remember vividly how it felt to have what what what felt like complete agency and then you think back on situations in which really what was happening was not okay. What how what do you do with that like wait so the character? Karen has this experience as a as a young woman slash girl like. We don't really know what to call her Asia's sixteen year old and she feels like a woman and like a girl she has an experienced that on the one hand she chooses and on the other hand arguably she's she's drawn into an extremely manipulative and very very very Experienced older person much later in her life she cannot. She's kind of ribbon down the middle by why this sense of having been exploited and the sense of having been an agent who chose and those two things are really really hard to reconcile and I think think that it can happen to us at any age that we can be exploited by those who have power over us and yet at the same time also have the experience of feeling. We've chosen the situation. But I think that it's particularly he comment at that age. Where you're not a child but you're also a child? I mean I didn't feel like a child at that age so I in in a lot of ways I one hundred percent agree. We were never children is what that character says but at the same time I now have children that age and Oh yeah. They're children they don't think so. So you know but I know that they are yeah. It would have been simpler. If when she was like an interrogating history is so hard for anyone to do. I think at any point in their life but it would have been simpler. If when Karen looked back she worry able to like. Make the call and say this is absolutely not my fault. Look I was a victim and I thought it was interesting and so powerful that that wasn't that wasn't the the narrative choice you made. She's clearly. She blames herself as much as anyone for what happened And I think that's just a powerful thing to think about too given the conversations that we've hat around me to and everything else you know. We are looking harder people's pasts and like often. It's just a really hard call to make in your own in life in what's happened to you. Like how do you resolve it. I thought it was just great. How the novel didn't really wrap that up for her but it's also very sad? It's very sad. Yeah because it's it's it's too easy to An in it. So and it's it's too easy to be able to say one or the other. Karen's not able to do it. And the and the thing that so for me that one of the things that so important about her inability to decide I was a victim I was I was wronged by someone and regardless of the fact that I feel like I walked into that trap with my own two feet I was sixteen years old old. The other party was much older. I'm able to understand now that that I was damaged which she can't do in the fact that she can't do that among other effects it completely removes the possibility of alliance from her life. She's unable to ally herself with other women. Which is another thing that I really wanted to sort of look at in terms of how that feels she? Can't you know it's a period in the book. It's a period during which women are coming forward and pointing backwards words to things that happened in the past and saying I might have seemed to agree to it at the time but like let's look at how old I was. It wasn't okay and Karen looks at those women with this mingled scorn and kind of longing on the one hand. She's like well. You made a bad choice so tough on you and on the other hand I hope what comes across is how wounded. She is by being unable to count herself among them and sort of put herself beside them. She can't do it right. I don't think in any way the like the story should be read as an endorsement of that score and that she has. But I think it's really powerful the way it's presented in the book. It is interesting to like what you said about her. Not Allying herself with women of course like there for a lot of her. Are the part of her story. The person she's really expressing the most anger with at least on the pages. Sarah who might have done some things that like you know I could understand. Her feeling betrayed betrayed but wasn't like the main perpetrator right right and who was also the same age as she was a child like her me kind of a victim. It's interesting how looking back. Even as adults none of them can actually refer to themselves as victims or whatever I love like. The rage can of simmering under like this book. If you're willing I would love for you to just talk a little bit about that fell It feels like purposeful. It feels like it does really serve the story but like at its heart in certain ways. It's a hilarious but like angry book. Did you feel that as you're writing it. was that something you consciously leaned into. Yeah I mean I did feel. I did like understandable. I I did feel really. I mean I still feel really angry about a lot of things. Sadly I'm not actively writing right now. I'm not. I'm not like pouring it all into some I'm not being productive with it but I was I was angry and anger. That had predated that particular FAW. Aw and It's interesting because this book having been written really As I said intermittently certainly which. I've never done which is really weird for me. You know that I would have written this book for like a I worked on it for a couple of months in the fall of fifteen and then a couple months in the fall of sixteen and then a couple of months in the seventeen. And before that I'd I'd written the early pages of it's so long ago I literally can't even remember when when exactly I had it started But it was sort of telling once the book was done to look back and realize that a lot of the sections of the book had been written during particularly stressful moments and and to kind of be forced to conclude like as if I were watching myself from the outside that I'd been kind of provoked back to this material at really specific vic moments and and prior to the election moment again. I'd been working on this other book which I continue to conceive of as the book that I was writing and tell basically the bitter end. When it's wreckage was revealed to me someone was like I don't I don't think you should show this to anyone else for a while? And I haven't but you know the moments at which I would abandon that and go to this material the notable one that predates the fall of sixteen was the fall of fifteen when I had returned my Alma Mater Yale to teach for the first time so I was returning turning to a place where I'd been actually pretty unhappy student for the first time to be a teacher. The fall of two thousand fifteen at Yale was very very painful l.. Roiled I mean. I don't know if any single semester in the past decade could compare to it. It was an just google if you're wondering but it was. It was a really painful time to be on campus and because of a series of things that had happened around privilege privilege and race and identity and and really painful clashes between students and teachers and so is such a strange space to be in to return to a place where I was psychically a student and to take on the responsible role of teacher and I think that that is probably reflected. Did in this book. Also those tensions thing. I'm asking a couple more questions and then we'll open it up so start thinking of your questions now so you must have been getting incredible reactions to this book from leaders. What I don't know if you have a favorite one? I'm just always curious or one that surprised you the most. I do actually have one favorite. I mean I have the reactions to this book so far have been the most gratifying of my career. It's been really early joy. It's it's really thrilling. But one of my favorite reactions which was fairly early came from a couple. Although I think you know Julie Button Gabe hey bash. Who are husband and wife brilliant writers so they had both read the book early and as they later told me got into an enormous fight about this and fought for hours and then later related this to me and I was sort of initially horrified and then they were both like we really enjoyed it? They tell you specifics. Julius my editor. We're really good friends. Did they mention like their like sides. I guess well all I know is that Gabe said to me okay. I'm going to present you with three options. Tell me which one is close to right. And he said this this this and I'm not going to say what they were and I said this and he goes and I was like okay. I'm GONNA actually for the Ashley. Okay so something else. I wanted to ask us. Just ask of everybody but any this book blew my mind. Have you read anything lately. Anything you'd WANNA recommend if they love your book and the like this is such a semi loved yearbook literally the Book. I have most recently read that that I I was. I was fishing Venice. She wasn't but I was Nicole's book is is amazing. It looks like this it totally different niches this is. This is non-fiction. It's a memoir. It's anyway thank you. I wept buckets. What's the question? I was leading into if they love your book and the unconventional structure and narrative shifts. I mean are there other books really recommend they pick up. Oh yeah that's a really fun question you know.

"Kind of problem they would all like like to be things so good thank thank you so I have been obsessed with this book. I took it on vacation like about a month ago. And like ever since. I've wanted us to talk to people about it feel like everyone I know has been simultaneously freaking out about it. It's just such a great heartbreaking tender like shocking story in so many ways I have a lot of questions for you that what unfortunately delve into spoiler Miller territory and we will keep this spoiler free. But I don't think it's giving anything away to say. You know the first half of the book pretty much told from one perspective one narrator and and then suddenly halfway through we switched to the perspective of a different character with a different name than the character we thought she was in the first. And you think okay like now. I'm really going to get the truth. But in fact she's also not always the most reliable and so yeah and the third is something else entirely but I guess I'm just wondering like where did the structure and all these voices come from. Was that always as the plan for this book. No that was never the plan for this book. I don't. I tend not to have a plan for my books. which is it's nerve-racking it's also fun I find it to be more? I guess motivating to write books that I have no idea where they're headed to. I mean the truth is I actually have no nobility to plan ahead so it's not as if I'm choosing not like an airliner. I'm not an I don't understand those people. I don't understand those people either and I. I would think that they were all liars. If it wasn't that I actually do know truly brilliant in fiction writers who are out liners and I've seen it happen and I've I've never been able to understand. I mean just everyone writes. Everyone who writes rights writes very differently and I tend to write my way forward into a fog everyday sort of thinking what will come next and my desire no is part of what like gets me to sit down and actually work every day. This book was a little bit different because almost all of my previous this book I've written In such a way that that was the thing I was doing I was. I was doing that for better and mostly for worse it was the one thing I was trying to complete and every it kind of sit down and Bang my head on the wall about that thing. This book was actually Originally just a thing that I started started to waste time while I was trying to finish a different book that was going very poorly and so I would sneak away from it and do other things and try to feel like I put in my writing time and one day I started one day I started writing. What would actually end up being the first page of this book and then I wrote a few more pages you just left it for years? Actually but periodically I'd return to it and add a little to the file always kind of just for fun. I didn't know where it was going into. It didn't really feel like it was going anywhere to be honest. It was kind of going forward into into Merck. That didn't really dissipate and one day when I happen to feel like picking it up again and it had been. I mean more than half a year since I looked at the file when I picked it out began that different voice. That was very irate about everything that had come before just kind of entered my mind like the thought of someone who was in the fall of twenty sixteen so I was going to ask if maybe your own mood had something to do with it but I. I didn't want presume. My own mood was definitely connected to it So in the fall of twenty sixteen for some reason I was thinking a lot about Storytelling and all of the sinister and damaging forms of storytelling that. I had never really given a lot of thought to before. All of the forms of storytelling that seemed to be taking place on a on a national level and inflicting so much damage and I kept thinking how can these stories possibly be told how can so many people possibly be listening to them. I'm feeling really angry about it. And and and so it was it was when I turn back to trust exercise. I guess not that surprising. That's suddenly in the world of that story. There was someone there who was also really mad about the story that was being told in that world. Yeah I loved that and I was going to ask about this later because I felt like people who haven't ready at might need a little more information about the story. Sorry but just since you mentioned storytelling I with all the switching voices. It really felt like this book has so much to say about about that in about who gets to tell stories and who listens in whose voices are erased and when you're looking back in a shared history like whose perspective kind of wins the day. I love that this structure just flips all that I don't if you could you talk a little bit more about that second character that we get once we get the story from a different angle. Like why did you follow this voice. Like an how did how did the voice develop develop as you wrote. Did you know the story completely different. This is truly never happened to me before. I'm pretty sure it will never happen again. Dan But I just. I wasn't an out liner and I'm really not but when that voice entered my mind in September of two thousand sixteen gene and I even remember that it was like meeting. Someone even remember what was happening. That day it's Karen. I should just say that because I'm going to ask more questions about her. So it's this character named Karen or Karen Karen. Actually her name is Karen but when Karen you know sort of introduce herself forcibly to me on this stay I unlike any other point in my writing life and and probably never happening. I knew exactly what she was mad. What about and I knew exactly how her she essentially kind of comes into contest right? She's a she comes into challenge the narrative and say like screw that that is actually not that is. I don't agree and I knew really you almost immediately. What it was that she disagreed about and I kind of knew how she was gonNA disagree so it was this thrilling again? Like never to be repeated Mohan in in my fictional career where I thought oh my God I actually. What's going to happen? I could outline it or I could just read it and I and I wrote it really quickly that part you mean the second part right. Yeah the second part. I wrote more quickly than I've ever written anything. It was actually done before the election was although in a way the election was already done But I bet between September and late October. That off came tumbling out and at the same time as I knew knew what was going to happen. I also understood for the first time that I was working on a book. Because I've been kind of lying to myself long at that point I had you know like eighty to one hundred pages of trust exercise and I kept hoping it would be a short story incentive my agent thinking that she would have some brilliant idea of how to cut it and she'd just kind of centipede she was like. I don't know what this is no help but when Karen came along I both knew what what her piece of it would be and new now that this was a book that had no ending. Because I knew that Karen wasn't the end right. And so it was both total certainty certainty about her and sudden complete uncertainty about the rest. I WanNa talk to you. High School because You know that's the setting for at least the first half of the book is this performing arts high school all in an unnamed place but it feels like suburban near in urban place. You need a car to get around. If you don't have a car like you might as well not be alive kind of plays really spoke joke to me. I grew up in a place like that. But I think that you wrote about the vulnerability and the scariness and that weird in between this of teenage slice. Oh well really so much better than many people who tempt it and I mean I was remembering how. There's a great line I'M GONNA look it up because I wrote it down. Sorry sorry basically. We're one of the characters. Says we knew what we were doing. We were never children and he's looking back on their teen their shared teen history. But I mean that's true and it's not like of course they we're children in a way. I just finally this rush of empathy for like my teenage self. which doesn't usually happen right and I wanted to know like why was there a particular particular reason that you felt like he wanted to write about this age where this time in life? Yeah I mean. I didn't actually choose to write about the age group or the time so much is uh I was really interested in writing about I was really well. I guess I was but secondly I was really interested in reading about this student. Teacher Dynamic NAMIC that is in the book enacted through in parties. Trust exercises these And the scene that I read actually sort of gives a hint of of one such right this. This is an exercise that they're being taught to do. That's called EGO reconstruction where they're supposed to stand up in front of their fifteen year old peers and be an an practice radical honesty with them and a nightmare. Yeah Yeah and And you know this was. This was something that I was fascinated by. Because these exercises are a lot of these relics sort of classic classic acting class exercises and you can find them in in a lot of In a lot of kind of methods for for learning to be an actor and then Are we being recorded. Then yeah so some of these some of of these exercises also arguably a here in slightly different form in the practices of Certain Unconventional Twentieth Century religions that I'm not going to name and I initially was really fascinated by that conjunction because I was doing a lot of research into this twentieth century religious practice that I'm not gonNA mean another book Gar. My thought initially was that I would write a talk about this But then I got increasingly scared off about the about the prospect And so but meanwhile while researching this religious practice I had noticed this really striking similarity between these practices and these acting exercises and I started thinking. Well that's really interesting. Because in the religious context these seem to be exercises that are intended to sort of coercively mold disparate individuals into a kind of a more uniform compliant mass. and Oh that maybe as what what is also going on in acting class sometimes and so that that was what took me into the story. Initially Ali was the idea of those practices and teachers and students especially young. Young students teenage students. I wanted to talk more about that teacher. Student relationship shipper relationships. There's a lot of spoke has so much to say about consent and like power and often there are many student characters. I don't think this is a spoil. Well either to say that they are either manipulated or exploited or even preyed upon in certain ways by teachers and by adults in authority positions there consistently kind of led by the the nose by them and then let down by them. And I just made me think about like how difficult it really is to interrogate that past history mystery. And I've I've seen some some questions that you've gotten about whether this is me to book and I think it isn't it isn't but that's probably too simplistic way of putting it. Sorry I was just reminded about how high school like in other schools. I've been part of you know. There were these like persistent rumors about like certain educators and I mean to our shame I think we actually. I don't think we knew what to make of those. You know like you have this weird fake worldliness when you're a teenager. Yeah that's really well put right so so you only know so you feel like you have to approach even these horrific things with this jaded like I. You know I can look out for myself. In fact like WHO's really looking out for the teens in this book Yeah just what made you want to write about this particular subject like that those relationships in that power imbalance. Yeah well that's really put it really really well. And that's something that I think is incredibly.

"Welcome to film spotting we've been reviewing Bongino hose films here on the show since two thousand six his monster movie the host was our first experience with the director's work which combined genre film making with social commentary and often comedy sometimes a little horror thrown in as well I was looking back Josh Oh pierce notes just prior to coming into the studio and it turns out the host reviewed with the original co host on the show now our producer Sam the next Bunkum we saw and talked about mother with Mattie then you came in to talk about Snow Piercer so we're now into two films from bomb long where we don't have a new film spotting host so I think that says something promising about our future yes we're committed I guess Ocho okay we both did where we both on that show well no we were both on that show I can't remember either but OCA- I try not to think about very much not because I didn't necessarily like it it's just so disturbing yeah it really is and you do get that with Bong on occasion not reviewed here on the show but movie I definitely recommend two thousand three's memories of murder from Bongino his latest film parasite just made it to Chicago last weekend and we are going to talk about it here in a second but we do also want to mention that we're GonNa talk about the second film and our contemporary Chinese Cinema Marathon Fruit Chan's the midnight after comes to us from Hong Kong and it's another one that likes to mix all these different cinematic styles together it's a blend of science fiction history and comedy and probably seven other words that we could throw out came out in two thousand fourteen and was made in the wake of some major political protests in Hong Kong long and here we are in two thousand nineteen protesters again on the streets of Hong Kong we will see how all of that does or doesn't influence our experience with the film but I our review of Bong Jun Ho's parasite I wanNA start Adam by jumping back to the aforementioned snow piercer in that bond film Tilda Swinton looks out at the scraggly lower class citizens live in the steerage section of that title train and tells them you suffer from the misplaced optimism of the doomed as we mentioned parasite also has class issues on its mind the movie opens on a struggling but scrappy South Korean family we've got out of work father play by song Kang Ho the star of a handful of other bond films and a mother played by Jang Hygiene as well as a brother and sister played by Choi Woo Shik and six Oh damn there probably those characters in their teens or early twenties I would say now from their semi basement apartment the Kim family watches at St level the world pass them by if not drunkenly piss on their building they're not in the best neighborhood when the sun happens into a tutoring job with an obscenely rich family the Kim see an opportunity with a few white lies and some scheming they try to find ways each of them can be of service the Parks Lee Sunken is Mr Park and show Yo Jong is the mrs now for a while things seem to be working for all parties involved but we do have the creeping sensation Adam that the lower class Kim's might also be suffering from the misplaced optimism of the doomed the class critique in Snow Piercer had all the subtlety of an axe fight appropriately parasite isn't quite that blunt but I don't think you could say it's subtle either hatchets are also involved at one point given all that Adam did you find that bonds new film had anything significantly different to say about class or is he highlighting income inequality just in a very different sort of setting here. Well I'm going to bow out of your question a little bit Josh because one I would need to rewatch nope Piercer to probably truly thoughtfully address that question and I would need a little bit more time with parasite this is still processing review we just both from the at screening but to that question of the commentary about class as we said it's really been a part of all of his films all the ones that I've seen any way not just in snow pair Suba going back to the host going back to mother there elements of it in memory of murder as well and I think the genius of Bong has always been not so much what he's trying to say but how he says it the new and inventive ways he's been able to tell what really is one of the oldest stories one of the oldest conflicts that goes back to the very beginning of civilization I agree with you completely that this movie maybe seems to be a little bit more subtle than Snow Piercer definitely doesn't have the camp element that you get particularly with that Tilda swinton character but before we really get into how Bong Explores the issue of class here and really what makes him so ashland filmmaker just a general comment having just come out of it we both really didn't know anything about this movie we knew basically at minimum that it had some thing to do with class and we did expect that but otherwise had no real idea even picking up all these comments these raves coming out of film festivals and all these tweets and letterbox comments about it we'd manage to not really have anything spoiled for us this movie was a surprise from start to finish for me but when you're seeing all these people that we really do trust and our tastes even align with just rave about this movie you go into it expecting transcendence not just smart and really L. Mater entertaining it a little bit provocative no it's gotta be borderline sublime and despite those high expectations bog June absolutely nails it here at least for me when it starts the movie high was according to wasn't snow piercer but actually one of the best films of last year from here Kazu Coretta shoplifters because that's a movie that opens just like this movie does with a family fallen on hard times they're out of work they are skimming to survive and that's what we get here and then we remember or reminded fairly quickly in this movie that this is wrong film and that he would sooner cut the heart out of the movie and show it to you that actually give you a lot of heart and there is a satirical element to this movie it's absolutely incisive when it comes to class distinctions it doesn't pull any punches about showing how loathsome almost everyone in the film can be we're going to be very Acre because we want all of you to have the same unspoiled experience we just did but then without resorting really to any sentimentality or convention party he also manages to make virtually all of those same loathsome people tragic or at least tragic in their own unique ways and they talk about classical Hollywood cinema the Lubitsch touch how about the bunk touch. I'm GonNa give you a moment without giving away any of the significant details that comes I think about three here's the way through the movie and at this point I've already been swooning over the camera movement the composition the lighting the occasional use of slow motion that just team so perfect the score which I think is wonderful here sometimes light and sweeping very orchestral and then it gets progressively more haunting and unhinged just has the story does and then you get this moment the does three things all at once and every Bongino film manages to give you at least one moment like this or the totality thirty of the film does this to you it's a moment where you laugh out loud followed immediately by recoiling in horror and not horror movie horror real genuine shock it's something terrible the just happened to someone and the crassness the absolute indecency on the part of the person who committed the act all while being an author of how it unfolded the cinematic dance of it the actual choreography of camera and actors and editing and the thing is I know you know exactly what when I'm talking about can I just ask does it involve a kick it done okay maybe benefits that you are two seats away from me and we had the same exact I mean did you go through that same yeah sequence of thought and you know and you're you're hinted at this as well but part of that whole package you described is also the understanding of why the act took place yes and being on the side of the person who committed it a little bit just as much as your other end yeah exactly which gets to what you're saying about how he handles all these characters shoplifters definitely came to mind for me of course a Japanese family there and that here Kazu Kurita film but really the filmmaker I kept thinking of here and has not occurred to me and other bond films was your ghost lengthy mouse this is tone tone but yeah waiting for this this is the dark side of shoplifters it's could very well be your go slant film in the way it is unbelievable gene about how dark humanity can get but also as you were just describing uses humor not the way horror or dark comedy sometimes does lighten things but to drive that point home kind of twist the knife I'm doesn't offer us release through funny moment but implicates us in the humor's wall which is what happens in that sequence that you're talking
'Borderlands 3' voice actor turned down role because Gearbox ‘wouldn’t go union’
"One on the report why Troy Baker isn't in borderlands three this is Kirk Kirk mckean over vg twenty four seven. If you remember we're of course do this whole Brouhaha for months. Now Randy Pitchford was asked on twitter. Hey is going to be reese. Randy said no troy turned down in Troy. I didn't turn it down. You guys said No. There's been back and forth. It's been ugly here's Kirk at VGA twenty four seven. We recently got a chance to talk to Baker during a fan event for wrestler replay. Let's play series the actor host alongside the other Troy Baker Nolan north. I love that during our chat he was openly disappointed that he didn't get a chance to play reese again in Borderlands Orlands three quote so they came to me and they were like do you want to do this. Baker explained which I said absolutely and then they made it impossible for me to do the role. It had nothing to do with money money. It had nothing to do. It had nothing to do with money. It had nothing to do with money. They just simply would not go about doing it the way that we needed to be done so then it it was like I never said no gosh I I worry Detroit. No he was talking to a reporter. It sounds like he's had a retro replay thing with Guinness just sitting there talking we we asked Baker to clarify what he meant by this scheduling conflicts or something else quote no it was simply a matter that they wouldn't go union. He replied and I can't do a non union union GIG without getting too deep into the weeds of that we had long conversations about this. We always knew going into it that this was going to be the thing they're gonNa take these characters and put them from put them from the tales from the series from telltale into Borland's proper. I've been waiting for this call. They were like do you want to do this and I said yes. They never they never because they would never move from that position. I'm not mad is invariably a complicated different. I'm sorry it's invariably a completely different different character but it's still sings stings fuck. It's hard to read quotes that are like just talking yeah. When it's a prepared quote we all go this garbage quote or a written word in general but when Choi's they're they're doubling up sentences over jabbing now the fun little kind of funny thing that we can do that but I want? I was going to bring in Chad's question because I think there's interesting. relation dossier Chad wrote in to Patriot dot com slash Kinda Funny Games says morning folks with the reveal this morning that Baker as a sack after member couldn't minute reprise his role of reese in Borland's three because gearbox wouldn't go union. Do you think this is something we'll see more of. Do you think this now becoming such a high profile story will before the hands of publishers to allow voice actors to unionize. I also wonder how often this happens. Considering it took one of if not the most popular voice actors sorry known to to make a headline that said I love the solitary solidarity intrigue continues to demonstrate that he is one of the kindest humans lot also. Let Your Voice Actors Union is Randy what the fuck cheers so yes. I already know where you're going with. This is an interesting story. If you all remember we hear kind of funny didn't animated series called kind of funny the animated series in episode one principal Christopher Walken it was played by Donna Troy Baker and the idea of course is that that'd be reoccurring character throughout throughout the entire run of the animated series well on top of that he was going to play two characters. He was gonNA play the principal. He was also gonNA play Troy who was like the Guy Oh I do. Remember who was a character in the show that just doesn't ever have voice yeah and the reason he doesn't have a voice is he's a Wendy's boyfriend. I remember that yeah I'd beef with Troy and we we we did a he pulled favor. I totally which is a gal do fucking voice view. He ended up getting kind of in trouble for it. It was more of a slap on the wrist. If you can't be doing that Shit so dr like hey we want to do the whole like series a kind of social. Whatever the hell it was at that point we had to go through his people and he didn't want to be that way he was he's like dude? I want to do this. Let's make it work but us us especially back then be the people we were. We got maybe two steps into that process and we're oh man it's complicated and it's going to require not too much money but the way that the money had to go was too complicated for what we were set up for gearbox they can handle that shape this and nothing that's of course the argument to be made here right is that kind of funny in the spare bedroom at the kitchen table and nick riding on these scripts was not the same as gearbox however there's a lot of different stuff going on here. Remember that when the David eddings lawsuit stuff was happening right and he was saying he that when he got replaced as claptrap this is a similar thing right that he left left in some he he worked at gearbox did the voice of claptrap and didn't get paid extra because of it. That's not the payment thing. I don't know anything about that other than what eddings has talked about publicly but that's still seems to be the case with how they do the voices in general right after the troy thing happened. I wondered if it was this based on what had happened with us. We obviously we had never had that kind of sag work a conversation before because we never did something like that before so it'd been so much time between borderlands two boroughs three I wondered after this happened with Troy was a union thing and then on top of that. I wonder how that would affect one actually burch who of course tiny team in the game is in the game. It is actually on the economy com slash wrong if I'm wrong about that doing tiny Tina's voice like I was wondering how she got around it because that's the other thing within the union ship makes everything so complicated. No longer on unions do a lot of great. I'm good. I'm not saying they're bad but I know like when I go and do the Lego Games because I'm not union. I have to do Taft Hartley Agreement. That's something weird like I. There's like paperwork on top of paperwork that is like we're bringing this person in because he s voice because of x y and Z yeah and so you know it's this weird thing of also talking to an extent here but for a long time not forever a longtime telltale didn't use SAG after voice actors obviously towards the end the change we're talking about in the borderland right here troy's in that obviously laurabeets in that all that but I remember and I'd have to go look at it now. There's there's something different about the credits where if you look through the credits of a telltale game where they use both union and non union they get credited in different ways interesting. There's so many intricate streak. I can't even talk to complications to use voice sag person or a a union voice actress nonunion voice actor that I I do wonder what this means for. How gearbox does it? You know I think chat ask in general I don't think so because I don't think this is something that happens often in many ways we've talked about. I think it is automatic. I'd imagine this happening all the time. I mean if it happened to us. I'm sure it's happening all over the place that you just don't hear about it because most people don't have podcast that years later the randomly telling the story sure you know but I think were going just different uh-huh directions with this one I'm saying I wonder how much this happens in terms of AAA Games. That's what I'm

Yeah Yeah also congratulations feel you on being worried about your skin and all that stuff and I I relate but how cool you're getting remarried and it sounds like it's it the fact that you're splitting it into two like sounds like they'll be like a really intimate thing which is awesome and then like a big fun thing and like those two degrees are kind of perfect because the intimate thing people will love you big thing people are just having fun around you so. I would definitely be that person not like hey. This is just a cool thing in maybe exactly what your pores are doing. What like dilation radius there at is like you know like ninth thank priority maybe but also Doria. I feel like you're the person who knows all the secrets so well. I did have some thoughts <hes>. I don't know if if you know this is secret level but but I had some thoughts share the secret story well I. I thought here's I thought you might WanNa. Try It night. <hes> I would start with an oil. Clinton's or a missile air water or you could do both you could do a double inclines <hes> and then I would do a Pixie glow tonic which has five percent cholic acid and that'll be a nice exp- wchs fully end and we'll help with those tiny temples and then I would maybe alternate that with a physical exfoliating cure brightening scrub then I would do an. Ha Serum like the ordinaries which is like nine bucks and on top. I would do an oil <hes> if you want to splurge splurge you could go for something like the urban for lapis facial oil which is a balancing oil intended for people with oily skin and I know you're thinking you're thinking talking. I have oily skin. Why am I going to add oil to it but adding oil you're facing up oily skin. Actually tells your skin not to produce as much oil yeah and balances it out balances it out so <hes> that's what. I would suggest some sort of routine like that you don't. I I think you don't WanNa go too complicated complicated <hes> and then I would also maybe do like the drunk elephant baby facial once a week just to really like clear things up up. You know there's a <hes> just because you said Pixie glow tonic there is a Pixie and caroline hurons. The irony highlands using there is a Pixie Caroline Highlands <hes> double cleanse the it's twenty bucks. It has a cleansing oil and a cleansing cream. I haven't used it. I'm always tempted to buy it yeah. They have so many cleansers at home that I just can't do it but I have friends who use it and love it. That's a that's a good price. I like that and and <hes> it's part of their clean beauty. Paraffin freeze cruelty free sounds great and then for daytime. I would be really gentle. I don't you know I'm a proponent of not washing your face in the morning <hes> unless you feel like really greasy already like you feel like there's something you need to take off your face <hes> otherwise. I would just like splash some water on it and if maybe puts me slayer water on if you really feel like you need to like take something off. <hes> you say you're already using moisturizer. I don't know what you're are using from wiser but I would do a light. Gel MOISTURIZER <hes> I've talked about the bioscience squally and probiotic Joel moisturizer. It's great <hes> it's a little pricey but if that's something you want to splurge on I would say that's a good splurge <hes> and then I would follow that with your sunscreen <hes> and if he wanted to hear him in the morning you could always do like a vitamin C serum. <hes> drunk elephant makes a C. Firma Day serum. That's it's really nice <hes> and you can get Sephora sells <hes> like a little mini thing of that with another one of their vitamin in be serum products so that's a good way to try it and see if your skin likes it because vitamin. C does make some people breakout you also if it's in your budget get a facial. Yes that might be just a nice thing to treat yourself with. An esthetician might also have some recommendations and be able to like really look at your skin. Yeah alright all right. Let's hear a voicemail with toner recommendation good morning. Cayden Dory's this fan ear. They hurt for criminal by calling in. I am calling in as I during my morning moisturizer so learning women I'm calling in regards to <hes> the person who called an f. about what what to do about toner eye stares pedal toner and I think it's really really really great and it's not expensive and I just wanted to say about how much you put on or don't put on. I used to use a cotton pad for MUCCI. They haven't even even cotton pads and I noticed I am major difference in my skin. When I stopped rubbing the cotton pat organizations pressing gently in in tonight although since then I have started using reusable Vanden pads for the environment and I still DAB <HES> and then I'll give it a minute it to drive them to my moisturizer but I will say that. I don't think it's as great for my sake but I guess it's better for the environment anyways hopes of helps. Thanks so much have a wonderful day. The pressing thing I feel like some vintners daughter tells you to press <hes> I've noticed I press my moisturizer in new rather than just rub everything everything yeah face totally. No I gently

Thank you so much for getting getting that. You don't make safe masking. I also don't like he's asking and I thought that was the only person I first of all hate that she <music>. You're stupid. I think they're a waste of time and money and I've maybe like one non. She'd ask that is kind of useful that <hes> that creon like watermelon one kind of likes that one but really.

Masks just gonNA weigh in because I kind of feel like a bad. Korean like hoppy it. You'll the fatigue are either sheet mask because I have Sony. They're so convenient as gifts and like any time I go to Asia by Slough. Admittedly they kind of go round 'cause they.

That's why I'm here so I was put here on this earth leading a movement to help people live their truth. I mean I still like a sheep masks. Can that's fine. I just never think ooh I wanna do thing and then that thing ever like as she masks exactly actly Mary exactly you. Never WanNa put wet tissue on your face for twenty minutes like I know the point. Is it like you should be doing doing that and doing something else but it's like usually when I'm doing some ales which is like more often than not watching TV. I'm just like yeah. I just don't want to be like down. Totally they yeah so. That's all of us just archer. I feel I do feel like I'm going to be like last Korean for admitting to that. It is so we're going to transition with this next email from the face to the breasts <hes> because I did share that scheduled my mammogram and a listener. Weeden they adjusted their first mammogram and they offered some tips summoning among give him a read number one. They are very serious about you. Wearing no deodorant odorant lotions powders etcetera bring a little pouch so you can put on all your favorite beauty items in the dressing room afterward number two. This is the biggest one ask for a curved wbt plate. It's sort of cradles breasts rather than smash them super flat. I don't know if this works as well for smaller breasts but it was much less painful than I thought it would be three. Let the tech nurse or doctor. No if you're nervous they walk first timers through all the time. The woman who did my mammogram was so kind she even tossed my little Medical Medical Cape Over. My shoulders told me I was superwoman for taking care of my health. That's so cute. That is really cute. I'd never heard of a curved play me neither. Have you had a mammogram. May I ask you may ask and I have not and I am just really the people are like how old are you and you literally forget <unk> CIGNA UNLIKE WHOA. You're right like I am fully in my late thirties a need to be getting a mammogram program and so I think I'm GonNa get one but I'm also just really fearful but this is like demystifying the whole ask for curved plate. Thing is great yeah. I never knew this and I think it can be nice in these kind of situations especially medical ones to just I always when I got my blood drawn. I always tell them I get nervous. They get kind of squeamish and they're very kind so I do think being up front with your fears. Yeah you will be met with kindness and respect totally so great tips yeah actually on that like I you know we talked a little bit about binge eating last time I was on and since I'm in recovery for binge eating like Omega eating disorder dismore fiesta and so lately whenever I go to doctor I asked to be weighed <hes> with Mike back facing the numbers. Tell me how much way and they're really cooperative and they're really understanding about most of the time and then that way you just don't have to make you don't have to know the number of it's. GonNa make you crazy for us today. I just want to tell you I love this and I support this. I also so do it. I had a conversation with my doctor and they put it into my chart so it's supposed to alert anytime I go in. It's supposed to say like I don't want to be weighed eight unless it's somehow relevant to William there. <hes> and it's really helpful and I I've. I encourage listeners totally to explore that if that's something when you're thinking about asked us your voice yeah yeah because it's your your health <hes> and I think so. Have you found just the act. Have you gone in and turned around and have them. NFL that that's been a better way for you to approach going to the Doctor The U. N. O. Totally and it just doesn't derail my day like if I have to go and get weighed like x four PM. I'm not sitting there being like but I had lunch and breakfast in I'm I'm wearing clothes in a more difficult it just silences a lot of that math that used to make me so so <hes> just anxious and nervous and like resentful and angry about going to the doctor 'cause it's and sometimes I will like you know <unk> that resentment with just like being too busy or like really really D- prioritizing my health because of all those emotions that are like Ansari to me getting a frigging checkup. Oh Yeah I was I had to go to the doctor recently to get a prescription refilled and they didn't name me. They took my blood pressure but they didn't weigh me and I was Mike. Thank you yeah. There was no reason to weigh me but I just feel like that's now become so standard. Yes you go in for a cold and they're like we're going away. Yeah like why why exactly. Dorey yes shall we read a long email yeah. We're going to switch gears again. Just the gears are switching gears ears are just turning everywhere so we had chatted about hobbies and whether or not we even have them and someone wrote in hobbies versus side. Hustles yes yes and this person wrote him because <hes> they said that are comment about hobbies for the sake of hobbies resonated with me last year on a whim and a need to get out of the house. I sign sign up for a sewing class at our local parks and REC. I wanted to try my hand became address for my daughter didn't know what to expect but I was so pleasantly surprised by the others in the class women my age looking for an opportunity to get out of the house once a week and learn a new skill and she said it was also around this time. I'm that a lot of my clothes weren't fitting me that well anymore. I would get so depressed going to stores and try enclosed that just didn't look right or seem to be made cheat materials that clung in the wrong spots so I I decided to try making a t shirt out of some beautiful organic bamboo Jersey from a local indie fabric shop. There was a lot of trial and error a lot of swearing and although I could see so many mistakes I managed to make something resembling a t shirt and after that I became hooked sewing is not cost effective. It's definitely cheaper to go to old navy and get the same kinds of closed but sewing is a fun challenge for myself. I love being able to pick up beautiful fabrics. I'm proud when I'm wearing the clothes I've made. I love being part of an amazing instagram community immunity that spans the globe and support each other. There is no side hustle. It's simply a hobby that helps me be more mindful of my wardrobe proud of what I'm creating and allow me to focus focus on something other than all the anxiety going on in my brain. There's no pressure to do anything. Finish anything or be the best at anything. I think just doing something creative for the sake of doing it is such a joy and I hope more people discover this love the I knew you would. I love it so much Mary. Do you have a hobby. You know what I also love this email. Actually Emily <unk> busy on mentor Joel sort of like crazy because I'm like very selling a thing right now in there's something about what she was saying about. A supportive instagram community rose just like what does that even Mike Like I. I don't have you know what I actually started doing. I started getting into Tarot cards beautiful about not having to do with anything. I don't share it. I don't really talk about it anywhere and it's just for me and it's like this meditated the thing that I do for a few minutes in the morning afternoon when I'm feeling inclined. It's not monetize Abol. It's not like being graded by other people. It's not going to gain new followers or making aching loose all of that other like noise. Quieting is just really nice and doing something just for you. That isn't it's like a clot is in full. Yeah not clout move not a club yeah. I love that and also not not doing it for like. Dory side-hustle yeah just doing it. I'm not even sure what that feels like. I know I'm ready to learn but yeah is also barrier to entry of being like Oh. What is the audience. GonNa think in like House speaker at every everything else like really sucks the joy out of like a lot of the things that you might otherwise totally enjoy doing yeah feel people get hung up on this with writing a lot and then they find when they're just doing morning pages which are like just for them quote unquote that they're able to write a lot yeah or writing fan fiction. Yeah I mean that is for an audience but a different kind. It's not necessarily surly. MONETIZE and people are very freed is interesting meeting based. It's not just about like that. Excellent outlines just win over everyone else or whatever yeah totally. I would love to know what the sewing community is like on Instagram to what are some hashtags reveal. Oh yourself instagram sewing community. You sound so lovely. You've really do he wanted we wanna we went to observe well. Let's take a short break. Okay okay. We're back and again another a whole new topic to explore this. Were weaving all over the place in this episode. Yes <hes> <hes> I'll read this before it. Do you ever fear that a dream will feel so lifelike and real that you wake up actually doing the thing you were doing in your dream something so mundane and normal like peeing well. It happened to me last night. I'm a thirty something year old grown ass woman and I peed my bed. I've always had this scary combination of vivid dreams and a small bladder and would say that with some frequency. I'm using the bathroom in my dreams. I've been afraid of waking up wet but it's never actually happened until now. Thankfully I woke up as soon as I started to P and stop myself before I had a chance to soak the sheets and mattress but what do I do in case. This happens happens again. I'm afraid to tell my partner because I know he'll be grossed out and I'm too scared to Google this problem for fear that I'll come up quote dry and not find any other adults of this issue issue. I should probably add that. I'm very newly pregnant and can't help it expect my vivid dreams and bladder issues to only get more difficult to manage help. I have not heed my bed but I do have dreams where I am peeing and then and then wake up and I have to apiece. Obama had that too in the dream. I'm like PA but the the feeling in my bladder sock going away and I'm like why is it not getting better then I wake up and and it's and I'm about fifty P. so bad so number one. I think that is totally normal to I would say this happened to this listener one time. It's probably though I understand why it has given you pause I would safe is a repeat thing. Go See your doctor. Talk to your doctor yeah but I feel like one time. You were heavily. You were sleeping heavily. You your newly pregnant so both P and bladder stuff is all John it happened. It's okay yeah. It's fine and you know if you feel comfortable. Maybe just let your partner know yeah total. I don't think it's something to be embarrassed about. I agree with you as far as telling the partner. I think that even like being too scared to Google it because he for fear that you're all alone unlike I agree with you I mean I think that we've all been on that sort of like precipice of like no pun intended of like you know getting up and be like. Oh my God it really desperately need to be going but I think that like being fearful that this is GonNa happen again and that sort of anxiety spiral can sometimes just like plague other other things like sleeping period. I think that just like you know you're only a signature secrets and I think that like telling me. Your
