"I go. I hear about miracles. Some of them are baloney but most of them are true. They're people that i know and trust and they give you details but we live in a world where people act as though there's no such thing as a miracle or who i've never seen proof i've never That's sort of legitimate In any event.

But as marketplace's amanda peach reminds us limits on how much consumers can buy can backfire on retailers. Trying to sell it when there was a run on certain products in pandemic early days.

The judge has ruled that apple cannot prohibit developers from adding links for alternative payments beyond apple's app store based monetization remember the deal apple made with lawmakers in japan for outside payments for reader apps.

According to the ruling apple can no longer stop developers from one including in their apps and their meta data buttons external links or other calls to action that direct customers to purchasing mechanisms in addition to end up purchasing and to communicating with customers through points of contact obtained voluntarily from customers through account registration within the app. Not what apple would have wanted but again could have been worse.

Apple App Store Changes Fail to Stem Push for Overhaul Bill
"Peace offerings and settlements between apple and developers won't stop congressional moves against app stores couple of weeks ago apple announced a proposed settlement with smaller developers. Perhaps the biggest concession offered by apple was the one that would let developers use communications such as email to share information about payment methods outside of their ios app. A few days later apple settled with the japanese government that settlement included a pledge to let reader apps such as net flex and spotify. And who knows. Maybe some that actually involve reading under terms of the settlement apple will let reader apps include an in napa linked to their website for users to either setup or managing account and sign up using a non app store. Payment method will be possible according to a piece from macrumors. Maybe they think it's not enough. Maybe they just wanna look tough.

"Welcome to asian america. They can find. Podcast are ongoing. Mission is to identify invite asia break and culture makers in culture shapers shared their stories with us and as always. I'm your host. Ken fog want to welcome you to episode number three hundred twenty two. This is the latest addition of the special and recurring the two cats episode. And this is where instead of a guest. My longtime friend and fellow podcast or ken camp and i get to interact around pressing issue. This is an example of kind of cross podcast pollination. His podcast has been around for a little more than a year. We have different audiences. Were good friends. And so this has been great because when you have a guest you don't really get to get into issues so much personally. But without a guest and with two hosts. It's a lot of fun. This particular episode. We are talking about a netflix documentary. That's been getting a lot of attention. Recently called pray away and it's all about the harm done to gays and lesbians by conservative christians to coerce them into thinking that they could just quote. Pray away the gay but that particular topic as usually happens directed candidate to examine why so many of us choose to join groups or organizations and this includes religious groups that require us to repress something about who we really are as always. It's a great conversation that i know you will really enjoy before we get to that episode. I want to follow up on last week's conversation with writer and director bow His martial arts flicked. The paper tigers received a rare one hundred percent recommendation from rotten tomatoes. And just a few weeks ago was listed. Among the ten most watched shows on net flicks not too shabby right well. Afterwards i received a lengthy comment on my podcast. Facebook page from very ticked off listener. This doesn't happen too often. And this is what he wrote. Bow tran why did you have asians say. And then the n. word. I turned it off after that. You have no respect for black people. What have you learned from that. And i don't think cancel culture or your black friend is something you can hide behind or this that i don't really care about a condo unless it's a commitment to not do that going forward but i doubt you're open if it made it to the final cut even if bill maher apologized for using it no excuses and i'm black by the way so this was a little jarring I do appreciate the fact that this listener took the time to actually leave this comment on his facebook page. I happened to be shampooing. The carpets in our house the next day and so rather than quickly respond. I've done that in the past and it usually. It's not a good idea. I actually spent the time while. I was shampooing. The rugs thinking about how it was going to respond now. There was an option not to respond. And i felt like no response when this person took the time to actually let me know that they're upset that would have been bad for so. This is ultimately. What i responded back. You know. i remember being jolted when one of the street pumps in the movie called the old washed up. Asian american martial artist the n. Word but for reasons. I can't explain. I failed in my job as the host. When i didn't ask tran why he chose to leave the n. Word in the script. I promise you that. I will email him and ask him this question and if and when he responds i will share his response and this listener very genuinely thanked me for doing that. Well so i emailed bow and he was nice enough to respond the next day. It was pretty apparent that this is a question. He's been asked before when talking about this film. This is what he said. Hey cad those punk characters are young and brash an offensive. In contrast with the old tigers s filmmakers we are certainly not condoning but we wanted to reflect it. Yes there are asian americans who use that word free the is it appropriation. Is it offensive. Those are the questions we raise. And you'll see that play out in the rest of the scene where there is eventually a begrudging apology. I hope that people can give the whole movie affair. Watch and pay attention to what is actually happening in the story. Now i get where my listeners coming from but i also get where trend is coming from as well he wrote. This script directed this movie to be realistic which obviously was risky but having viewed that particular scene two times i can appreciate that. He also had the punks apologize for using that offensive term. I'm not sure that if the listener who wrote to me head watched the entire scene. If he then would've agreed with trans decision he did say that he reflexively turned off the movie as soon as he heard them utter the inward and. I'm not sure if that listener is going to be satisfied with trans response. The use of the n. Word might simply be a bridge too far for him. And i can appreciate that but i'll tell you one thing on kicking myself now that as the host. I didn't think to delve into this during the interview. That would have given trenin me much more time to talk about why he chose to take this kind of risk. And i wanna finish this introduction by talking about the importance of taking big risks whether it always works out or not over the past seven years. The majority of my guest came to my attention mostly mainly because they are risk-takers. Here's a few examples. Dan kuramoto founded the first asian american studies program at a major university when he was basically a fine arts major just kind of hanging out in the park playing the flute and he also founded here shema the first asian american jazz fusion band that just celebrated its fortieth anniversary in twenty twenty. That was a huge risk there. Also a former air force.

Thanks to prop forty-seven a worker at a rite aid. English sell park thirty six year old man. He apparently decided to try to stop some shoplifters. They fatally shot him. Yeah oh you can't do that. Two guys came into the store. Try to leave the store at the case of beer each and i guess he just tried to do the right thing and say you can't do that and they turned around and shot him. This is about nine o'clock too bad day night. I i guess didn't understand. He lives in a city with the people who run the city like our city Don't care about life property they don't care the everybody's got free rein to take whatever they want and you try to step in. You're going to get the bullet. Miguel penalty loza was his name. They're doing a go fund me for his family and they're still looking for the killers who by the way these people. No i mean.

They're still doing this. But you know it's morse based out basis. They just hit certain stores like that neiman. Marcus video exactly. Yeah that's right so this is this is gaskins. Law prop forty seven. You could still almost a thousand dollars and you're not going to get arrested anymore for it. So that's what they're doing. They're walking in taking what they want. You can't get in the way they will kill you. It's like the guy who chased the homeless person that had santa. Monica place guide stolen car when he got run over twice. He did. These people are crazy and and they're gonna kill and they know there's not going to be a consequence you down with workers are asking that they start adding security remember in san francisco.

Oh it's demeanor if you steal under nine hundred fifty bucks the shoplifters no this it's like all right so what even by get caught it's a it's a citation care you to have the police aggressively policing neighborhood and then this guy feels intimidated. You actually have to have. The police presence intimidate these characters and if he gets caught you throw them in prison forever but they don't wanna do that now so he wins and the employee is is dead. He's in the dirt.

"Story guard agreed to do this. Some story about caroline. If you share your story about absolutely snoopy. I i'm ready the good and You know i. I think i think they're ready for it and i do want to answer it but i wanted to. Just start by affirming what you said and you know as i. I don't know that. I've thought about russell moore and beth more but i can see in both those cases that for the spouse. It's really about friendships. And it's also about watching their spouse attacked by their former friends. And that is that is deeply deeply hurtful. It's traumatic it's it's trauma and You know i. I don't know their marriages So i i would only speculate. But i i i. It seems to me like they're working through this together. That's an and i'd like to say that's been true for us too but also want to say that we being around this conversation about deconstruction has exposed me to more than a few people whose marriages have blown up. Because of this. I mean you go to you marched down the aisle and you put the rings on the finger and you make a promise in front of all these people and you think you know each other and a lot of the assumptions you make about each other are are pretty firmly in place but then as the years go by we change we evolve. We learn we grow and Thankfully i've got to say that after all these years caroline. I have really really grown together. But that's not to say that that are Marriage hasn't been strained over this You know. I know there are some people even in my family who think that because caroline i are still together on most of these issues political theological and other and we're not totally in sync i mean caroline caroline's concepts and ideas about things that are not the same as mine. Were not identical. We're not cookie cutters on those issues but But people will say and they think that all caroline is just a wonderfully submissive and and she just devoted to her husband and she loves her husband so she's just kind of because she admires his brilliant since intelligence and everything. She's just kind of going top. Yes that's obvious. But that could be further from the truth and i tell you what it was for caroline for care for me. It was having a rough experience in a church job that i had that threw me into the dark night of the soul and raising lots of margins and a lot of people On my podcast know about that For caroline it was actually working for a christian university where she was exposed to all sorts of things. I mean there were political debates among the phd's and a lot of the assumptions were challenged and she encountered different lifestyles. We had an underground gay and lesbian community. At this christian college. She ended up befriending a wonderful couple. That actually lost a son who came out as gay to suicide. That was a long story and it was a you know it was actually involved in exodus in reparation therapy and blah. She's dealing with a parent. Now who's filling all this guilt and grief over. Having bought into this notion that she could not accept her son for who he was and now he's dead and You know those things really really shook the foundations for both of us and And and and she has been learning and growing and reading and tuning into podcasts and following you know people who are on this journey of Of trying to shed the old stuff. That just doesn't work anymore and trying to discover something new that is even more energetic and vibrant and alive And so we're we're kind of on that journey together but it has been painful because we have family members it just do not understand appreciate can't even engage in the conversation with us. It's not easy. You may be all you're saying that may be in a wolf. what if it was a different scenario. So what if. Ken had never deconstructed was just right in the pocket of white christian nationalism without the tags and labels right and it was your wife that actually had that experience at the university and had started this deconstruction journey and then the word started filtering back to your parisioners that you know almost the opposite of what you said. People wrongly assume why caroline still with you on this is like ten reeling. Your wife light. Yeah like maker submit like she. She is becoming a problem to you. I mean that happens to happens to it. Happens to it does and And i've seen that and you've seen that but this is the this is the whole business of the tribe. This closed exclusive tribe that writes all the rules and rights the narrative and if you step outside that narrative you become one of them you become one of them. You're no longer one of us now. How that's gonna and that's where that's where it really starts to sound like a cult. Yes yes yes it does and i. I'm afraid that a lot of religious experiences. Is it sadly cultish it. It is sadly cultures. Okay cancel how about you. You know you've made some pretty fundamental changes in your perspective you you pastored a baptist church for many many years Ten years before your retirement you changed your mind about. Lgbtq in your community Paid a price for it but it opened up a whole new world of connection and ministry for you..

"Everyone it's so fun not just to get together every so often with my fellow. Podcasts are and longtime friend. Ken temp of the beach white male. But it's also fun to combine our audiences isn't it yes it is. It certainly. is ken fong. I love the two kids and we have so much fun. Just unpacking the things that are happening to us in this crazy. Podcast world of ours. Yeah and for my listeners. The beach white male my sense because i listen to all the time is you're really out there. Trying to speak especially to disaffected deconstructed. christians emerged. Yes right right which is which is a. It's a huge growing sort of segment of our society. And for if you're white mill lister my primary focus an audience of america. The podcast is really to put a microphone in front of asian american culture makers coacher shapers. Who i think are. They need a chance. They need an opportunity to share who they are and what they're all about whether they're kind of legendary sort of older person or they're an up and coming or something in between so it's fun when we can find reasons for you and i to issue a guest the hand to get into a subject which you going to do it this episode. Yes it is. And i listened to asian america that kim fong podcast regularly as well can and you know what i've said it before and i think if you've been listening to my podcast you know i talk about you now. And then because you adult even in the asian american community that i've tried to transfer into my tribal community and that's kind of what emerges and i deal with. Folks who are are are are finding themselves asking really big questions and they have trouble finding a place where they can be open about it. you know. They're they're accustomed to raising some of these questions and then either being shut down or been been given some kind of a simple bromide. That doesn't work you know. And then the subject to change and we just talk about something else but here. We're trying to just open the door to those those bigger questions and you have. You've really set the pace for me bro. On that one well. It's not because of a positive big questions. they're everywhere. Read it right right. Well i mean you. You're the one that kind of Stimulated what we're going to really focus on in a big way. Which is this whole critical race theory. Which is really getting a lot of airplay everywhere now. And yeah and you send me an article by an asian american professor of from new york who who's also christian who basically had put out a public challenge to a policy american politicians who identified as christians right of whom are are members of certain churches or or temples and was basically saying. It's not enough for you to Well it's not his way say he's saying it's not enough for chris. Christian groups to condemn anti asian racism. I need a we need to hear. And i'm one of the undersigned. We need to hear self identified christian politicians who've been fomenting anti asian. Racism confess this sin and to repent of this and if they fail to do it that their pastors or denominational leaders will actually take action. Because this is sinning against asian-americans what you know and and i love that because that that really is where the problem is i mean i. I mean i. I've read a couple articles. Usa today washington Has done article new york times And they they're talking about this critical race theory and how much play it is getting in the conservative media. Like i heard a statistic that like in the last thirty days. The phrase critical race theory has appeared on fox news over fifteen hundred times. They're just hammering and hammering it and hammering it and they're making it sound like this is like the end of america because critical race theory has gone wild in all our universities in the liberal media. And what the democrat party and blah blah blah. It kinda hits me personally can't next week. Starting my next table talk. It's the third one. I've done now and we're talking about the history of whiteness in america. This is a serious issue. But according to these guys who were attacking Attacking critical race theory that nobody should sign up for my class. And i probably ought to be exiled for even giving the class. hear that. fox's is already bought you your tickets you move to communist china yes. i'm waiting. No brad brad the onofre inbred onishi has been attacked by the right. Now you know in public. I'm i'm not quite there yet. I'm the beach. White male hasn't quite hit that higher profile. You don't feel the sting of that. I guess but it could be coming to me. It could be well. You know that's gonna be our main landing point but there's a related more personal way to start this two cans episode can and that is you know as i'm thinking about Like let's say some of these politicians senator marsha blackburn senator ted cruz the doctor calling names you know. I think most of them are married. They are and and typically the people that any of us. Mary tend to if the marriage is gonna last. Tend to have pretty solid alignments on worldview primary value for. So let's just say for the sake argument. That ted cruz. Holy spirit convicts him. And he's like you know what i am going to publicly confess that i have sinned against all people of color but especially asian americans and i repent of this. I will no longer right. What would mrs ted cruz be thinking. Because they're in their two peas in the same pot. Okay yes and so. So before we get into the critical race theory Landing this this kind of tension issue in a little bit more of the christian realm not too long ago to christian leaders named more not related to each other right. That's name more. Both of them left the southern baptist convention when the largest protestant denomination in america very conservative and also tied up in the whole condemning of critical race. One was beth moore who has built this empire of teaching a bible study and she's still been very quiet about race the racist history of the southern baptist. But she finally had had enough with the patriarchy as as as a profoundly anointed female leader within there and so she left on thinking so what does for husband thing. 'cause for her to leave that tribe i mean when she was hunky dory with it then he kinda gets the benefit of her being so well regarded so lots of friends lots of connections. You know if their community. So what about that. And then dr russell moore who was ahead of the southern baptist ethics division here's x. vocal critic of trump and he was didn't slam for that but finally he he he had enough to and so he's left and he's now being condemned by the baptist leadership. But what about mrs russell. More yes like i did. She have any say in what. He publicly declared. And i'm just thinking about this ten. Because you and i have been on our respective journeys as we have to do point. We've talked about it here. So i want to start by asking you the question. What what has it been like for. Mrs kim kim caroline your wife as she his bible grad what the trinity seminary work on the staff of the chuck. Swindle back in the day head all these ties with world vision. What have you. She says sale right along. But then as you started becoming more and more open and comfortable with your own deconstruction. Were she in all of that did she. Give you any pushback. And how have you landed today. Okay all my listeners. Know that i'm married to caroline and and i think your listeners know that you are married to sharon are we like to call her. Snoopy snoopy so i'll tell you what can here's the deal..

"Can find podcast. Our mission continues to be to invite asian american culture makers in culture shapers to share their stories with us and as always. I'm your host. Ken fong this is episode number. Three hundred and sixteen and it's a special episode which is dropping while our family will be more than halfway through our trip to alaska more on this in just a minute. This is the sixth the to kuenz collaborative episodes. Were my former tax preparer and longtime friend. Can i get to dive headlong into issues. That happened to be on our minds without a guest. We get to talk to each other about what we're really thinking. So this episode. We're gonna be talking about two things one. Is the impact on a spouse win. You personally are deconstructing your religious beliefs. Another this could apply to any spouse who helped to be changing their mind pretty significantly in a way that radically differs from. Let's say what they used to think When they first got married or in the early years of their marriage and we don't hear a lot about that. And i was looking forward to having this conversation with about our respective experiences in both of our marriages since both of us have gone through a deconstruction journey in our beliefs about the christian faith. So i think you'll find that interesting. And maybe even applicable. The bulk of the conversation though is where we address the far. Right's latest straw man issue critical race theory and i know a lot of us have heard that term. But maybe you don't exactly know what it means and even if you do you're not exactly sure what the right is trying to accomplish by putting this front and center as the latest bogeyman. So i think you'll find that also very very helpful now little bit about this alaska trip. It's funny as soon as they tell people we're gonna take a trip to alaska which we have postponed for a year due to covid. Everyone assumes we're going to be on a cruise ship and i look at them rather quickly they say. Why would we be traveling. All the way to alaska to want to experience the natural beauty of that state and just stay the most of the time on a floating hotel in just stuffing ourselves at buffets. We were able to find a tour group up there. That allowed us to put together our own itinerary. And you know me by now. I'm so into wildlife photography. This'll be my first trip. Bringing my mirrorless setup which is much smaller and much lighter in order to capture the animals and the scenes that him hoping to see up there. And this'll be fun to being able to take a trip with this new system. So first we're going to be taking a floatplane leaning on a lake in hiking in l'amour the mile to cat. My national park to that iconic waterfall brooks falls where the giant brown bears are in the midst of the water capturing salmond eating salmon trying to fatten themselves up for the coming winter. There's some platforms out there. The only way to get to this park is actually right by floatplane. It can still get crowded. But i'm hoping that it will be too crowded. I'm also hoping that there won't be a lot of Biting flies and mosquitoes. But we're prepared for that. At least we think we are after. We turn to anchorage the next day. We're going to take seven and a half hour train up to denali national park which is supposed to be teeming with wildlife and mount denali and just beautiful vistas. This being set long train ride. We actually spent a little bit more and got one of these dome cars with an outdoor platform so that we can have the option of spending some time going outside smelling the air you know maybe even using a super fast shutter speed and and taking pictures so the trip itself should be beautiful and then the next day we're going to take a all day bus trip with a guy and we'll be stopping ways we spot berries wildlife in other vistas and again shooting. Pictures stay one night Outside the park and then take that long train trip. The next day back to anchorage and then the final day were actually taking two and a half hour a train Further south to the town of seward to go through the connive fjords national park and that's the closest thing to a crew. We're going to be hunted this. It's not a cruise ship. It's it's about that does these day cruises and so for half a day we'll be cruising around in the waters. They're looking at fjords and calving glaciers. And looking for marine mammals and birds and again looking forward to this then we take a train back to anchorage spend the night. Have the morning in anchorage before we get back on the plane gonna fly down to seattle. Spend about twenty four hours a less. They're helping our daughter packed up her belongings and then she's gonna come home with us to take her gap year before starting graduate school. So what am i looking for. I'm looking forward to taking lots of amazing photographs. Because that's what i do these days. I'm also looking forward to having lots of time to catch up with our recently graduated daughter as she's now this emerging young adult. I think it'll be good especially on those train rides to just talk story. And in anticipation of her. You know coming back home to live with us last but not least. I'm also looking forward to are celebrating. My wife and i forty years of being married to each other. If listened to this podcast for years. I've told lots of stories about how we found each other and have we've stayed together to hit this. Milestone of forty years of being together with my wife truly makes me pause and be grateful that i had one moment of clarity and lucidity compared to all the other kind of girls that a normally was attracted to in my past to see that in this young woman who wasn't like any of those people that there was great potential to live together. So yeah as you're listening to this unfeeling very grateful about my years of marriage also that our daughter has graduated from college in his now getting ready to become more of an independent adult animals. So grateful that we've been able to reschedule trip a grateful that the vaccination rates are high enough in alaska is safe enough that we can make this trip which is certainly on my bucket list and really excited about opportunities of the wildlife and nature photographer to be able to compose and capture to share with others. Something that i've only seen a national geographic magazines. Yeah it's causing a little bit of money but one of the things that my wife and i have come to realize is that you're not going to be healthy forever to miss. You live a long time and so some of the stuff like traveling to places that you've always wanted to go to. You can't just put it off forever so that's happening there. We've also rescheduled our fall foliage trip to japan this fall but that one's lot more sketchy just in terms of what's going on with japan and the upcoming olympics but anyway i'm also grateful that cannon. I had a chance to record this last week so that i can still drop an episode while i'm not even at home. I hope you'll sit back and enjoy this conversation. It'll make you think maybe think again and overly educate you too. Thanks a lot for listening..
