I've read the store many times but this was one of the first stories that you know From the magazine that i read and then it stuck with me for a really long time and since then i've read her older stories in the magazine but also all of her collections. Her novels i think her most recent one about her mother Right divide by. Sarah is a great example of being introduced to a very small piece of a writer's work and then wanting to read everything about what she's written and seeing what kind of terrain she covers them. So she's one of those writers that i'm always recommending to everyone. What was it when about this story when you read it. That made such an impression. I think she does a great job of being very laser focused on an experience from childhood.

When i read it because i understood so much about the interior of the protagonist in that relationship but also just the backdrop of what was happening and class class within immigrants class in your native country in your new country.

How 'sex addiction' has historically been used to absolve white men
"A mass shooter drove into Atlanta and targeted three spots in the area. He killed eight people, six of whom were Asian women. Law enforcement officials have held off on calling the attack racially motivated. They say the perpetrator instead blamed his sex addiction. Well, experts and many others say it is damaging to separate race from this conversation because it ignores the history of hyper sexual ization and fetishization of Asian women in the U. S. Nancy Wang Yun is a professor of sociology at Biola University. She studies pop culture and specializes in race and ethnicity in media, particularly in Asian American representation. She joins us now to help provide some context to this whole conversation, and just a warning. This conversation contains content that may not be suitable for all listeners Welcome. Thank you for having me. So when you first heard that authorities in Georgia we're holding off on calling this a racially motivated attack, And instead, they focused on the suspects. Quote unquote sex addiction, as if that were a separate alternate explanation for these shootings. Tell me what you first thought of that. My first thought. I don't think I can say on public radio. I was just so angry, and I just thought, you know, and also thought like, you know, they just these police officers, and maybe all of America just doesn't understand. How racism and sexism intersect and this man, I mean, let's get into it. This man, according to law enforcement, said that he committed What he did this week to quote eliminate his temptations. Only as you know, how does that Connect to your understanding of the way Asian women have been hyper sexualized and fetishized in American society, like Can we just take a moment for you? And I to say out loud what those sexual stereotypes of Asian women are? I think submissive and I've actually gotten this is, you know really personal, But I've actually been asked if my anatomy is different. So a kind of very fetishized exotic sized that we're somehow even physiologically different from other women on guy thing that goes back to history of fetishization of women of color in this country. And servile. Um what else? Exotic Lotus flowers? Yes. Dragon Lady's temptresses. Yes. And I think with the lotus blossom like death at the end of movies like there, they never survive. Esso it Z kind of Madame Butterfly. Miss Saigon thing where You know that you want you want them, But then you also you know, can't have them. They're like they're taboo. They're forbidden. And let's not forget full metal jacket. Yes. S O the prostitute right? The Asian prostitute and that's a very common stereotype. And the kind of I think propositions that Asian women get in public all surround full metal jacket, quotes and they're They're horrible and everyone knows them, even though the movie is rather old, but it's now part of Society or culture in general, like life imitating art and imitating kind of an imagined life, right, Right. So when you heard reports that this man is perpetrator said that he He committed these shootings to quote eliminate his temptations. What did that say to you about his motivations? First of all, I thought that he completely dehumanized these these women, right? He labeled them as temptations to be excised to be to be eliminated. I mean, these are human beings, right? He is the one. If he has an addiction, he has the problem. Y treat whatever fetish that he has, you know, with Asian women love Y treat the women as the problem. I mean, this kind of externalization of his own issues is it was so horrible to hear. And as an Asian woman it felt like Holy dehumanizing.

"Staying yet so whatever he he finally goes away like. Thank god so we get tacos and we go outside and we start eating them in half way through eating them. We all of a sudden noticed that. There's this creepy like out of a movie. Creepy man. videotaping us eating the tacos. And we're like what what is happening. No and then the guy that we'd been talking to the bar comes up to us and he starts asking us these questions while the old creepy guy is recording us and then so my roommate is obviously like what the fuck are you doing. Stop you're not allowed to record us. We don't consent then. The guy is not recording. The one who was at the bar earlier goes. We have the right to do whatever we want. We don't need your permission to record you. So we're gonna keep recording you and we start flipping out because we don't even really understand what's going on and we can't speak very well 'cause we're drug. But then like the guy he. He looked like a pedophile was horrible. He continued recording until we start yelling on. The worst part is everybody involved. Taco was just watching and they weren't doing anything like there is even a police officer there too. They were just watching these ugly man records us for no reason and like not telling him to stop and go away even though we were yelling at him to and then there was this woman who came in and tried to calm us down but then we just flipped we just we started running away obviously and then all three of them left the woman the old guy recording the young guy because they were in a group together obviously trying to do something that and take advantage of women who they probably thought were over. Trunk yasser that happened. And that's that's came up with the fake name. Melissa though yeah so after the fact when we woke up the next day. We're like wow. That was horrible and we couldn't believe that happened. And then we're like okay. If something like that ever happens again your name is melissa. And mine will be tiffany when we need to use pseudonyms. It's a bad plan. Actually it's not. It's just unfortunate how we had to come to this idea to anybody listening know that you should stand up for people when you can see there being taken advantage of by older creepy men women to but it usually just happens that it's men more off than innings. Instances will any age really not even just older because anyone. Who's trying to do malicious activities. That's true what a crazy story kind of was. And i don't think i've ever experienced anything like that. Well that's good. But i do kind of expect that usually men women too but usually they don't go around filming other older men and it's not what sells apparently on the dark web. Think that's what they're selling people eating tacos in the dark web. I don't know they're probably selling this video for something because it was not. I don't know how to describe. It was not like not like a mook bang with random people. The questions he was asking us were intimate questions. Okay yeah that's So it was not right at least in your state you still recognize that it was like not a good situation you took took action on it. That is true what is true. We can be resourceful. Sometimes my roommate. And you know it's not always you yourself getting into this situation because you should never blame the victim but there are precautions. You can take the so will anyway. What kind of career do you wanna go into with math and statistics. That is one of the worst questions in the world. 'cause i always ask that question being a near graduates kalish student. But i don't know really okay. That's not true my life because of my multi cultural heritage but growing up in modulus community. I've been very concerned with justice and unfortunately the unfairness more than fairness like it's brutal. The brutalization placed on certain groups by people in power especially in the united states. Because that's where i've grown up in known so it's only mostly what i can speak on but all that kind of stuff however having to chemical engineers for parents they push me pretty hard to go stem but it was fine like i love math. I've always loved that kind of stuff in class or growing up. Just mention school mac. Class was my favorite all that kind of stuff. So i wasn't horrible but i wouldn't say that math or statistics is my great passion and i went to devise the next theory and being a math textbook now. Like that's not what i want in life in podcasting exactly so i'm thinking. How can i apply these majors to something. I do feel more emotional passionate about and so for a while at no that was going to look like but then now they've gotten a little bit older maybe a little bit more mature in refined and stuff. I'm really big into environmentalism special environmental justice but then also housing in public housing are should say the lack of public housing in the united states. So those are some big issues. That hopefully i would be able to use mathematics statistics upon to help change the way the. Us these these issues and things got or it'd be nice so right now.

It's a very timely skill right now derek a forty. Five years ago, six years ago. Got Big projects. They're Harvard. That's part of the. The motivation of starting stratified is because when we done not eighteen twenty, four months of product would deliver our software to folks on the other side, just start using it. They can operationalize that because as many Prada as we have been serving without customer, it's so centralized in a small group like the PhD's like the data scientists were looking at, it wanted pushed. A business is harder for them to use it. Right? That's where it triggers. The whole motivation of generating company like stratified is, let's let's bring future data analytic, which is really operational is the data analytics. Poaching that from the business lines, then live on business started using that in solving everyday problems they have. So we essentially become the operating system on their business analysts, their desktops day in day out there analyzing it in our station and my philosophy as in ever their laptops either they're collecting data. Or they're making decisions. So that's where we're going to operation is analytics for folks. Got It. So I'M GONNA assume a little bit up and kind of paint the problem a little bit more, and then we can start to go into some example. So the challenge that you're articulating is that analytics sits in this it universe where maybe I t tell me if I'm wrong here, they might build some dashboards they might build. Build some little interfaces maybe, but they're not day to day up next to the marketing people day to day up next to the compliance people day to day of next to the fraud people in financial services, for example. So those people in the business. So to speak in those operational wings, they don't really get their hands dirty with analytics, they just kind of get whatever they can request and whatever get built for. For them and what you're talking about is a dynamic where they actually can have their own interface and build and use the things they want. Am I hearing you. Correctly, you're absolutely right. One little thing to add to that is they're lacking the feedback channel, right? They're always as treated as consumers of what the other team has spilled. However, what other teams build because they are not business savvy, their lack of bag. Bag and updating what they're looking at to your point dashboard whatever the real time hurts the business. Yeah. Yeah. Because I guess nothing could be as customize. It really needs to be for the compliance people unless they're able to engage with it and build out the way they need or the marketing people build it out the way that they need. Now, of course, that's kind of a new skill set in a new. Set of things to learn for those teams and when I think about adopting a I, you guys, obviously, you have enough traction you for a fifty million dollars at this point. So clearly you have, you know some traction onto your belt for you folks, you've got to build I, guess, build something that simple enough that a person marketing or compliance will actually use. So I'm seeing that this problem is we've got to be. Consumers of what it builds analytics. That's not great. We WanNa see our own things about churn or about some regulatory issues or or whatever. But if if we want to put it in the hands of those users and let them really engage, how do we make it simple enough for them? What are the lessons you learned there because to me, that feels like a big challenge. It absolutely is, and you said are valued problem really while it's really democratizing Ai. Right. So think about this. What we have it, we will we have put a lot is simplify the model, right? You don't need to know what model is what you care as a marketing. You care about the results you care about attorney. Cariballo. Complies will we have done is spent a lot of time researching into how we can provide automatic machine learnings. Now, just one model. Model, not just two models is really led the model, the fit in whatever data for my to it. So that's simply put stratified were based on four simple part of one flywheel number. One will provide over one hundred, fifty data collections as individual. Do you don't need to worry about how can get hands on data? You are data market, you can get all the data connect to it. secondarily, that's where the preparatory auto, but she learnings county in our. It will go into based on what data get in automatically apply analytics and then visually showing you. Boys Costumer as Customer, experience folks to see what are the head and signals that really locks into that data set, and then you can start connecting those signals interactivity real time to tell a story. So that's how you made a simple straightforward and it becomes a skill sets that people can start leveraging without

"From the La Times studios this Asian every week on this podcast. We talk to one Asian American celebrity about the joys complications and everything else that comes along with being Asian American. I'm frank show and I'm Jenny. Moderate we know that the world feels crazy right now and that. There's a lot on everyone's mind. We recorded most of this podcast before our current National Public Health crisis exploded so we hope that this show gives you a brief break from the anxieties. That were all feeling right now. And we'll have a bonus episode for you later this week. A special quarantine that takes a look at how the corona viruses affecting our communities this week on episode two of our show we have our conversations with the thoughtful the fund the fierce the powerful. Luwan sheet erected last year's filmed the farewell. I knew that I didn't want to tell a story that was biased. And that was just that exists only to prove my point of view. That's interesting so just to set it up. Luang filmed farewell is the semi-autobiographical story of an American woman named Billy was played by Tina who travels to China where her family is gathering under false pretenses to saved. Because they're keeping a very big secret from Billy's beloved grandmother. She called nine. The farewell won the Spirit Award for best film. It went off a fina a historic Golden Globe and it is one of the defining movies about the Asian American immigrant kids experience. Yeah this movie wrecks me and it kind of wrecked. My Dad saw watched it with him and I saw this tier will dad tears. We will talk to Lula about the movie of course but also about what it was like to be in the middle of thunder and bidding war like she was the farewell and the problem with diversity programs in Hollywood and she has a funny story about what was going on right before she walked onstage to accept her indie spirit award. She gave this really amazing and true speech that went viral. And I've really been looking forward to this conversation so let's get started so you and I met just over a year ago at the Sundance Film Festival where the Farewell World premiered and left me cry like we being seriously like weeping in my seat In the theater lights came up. All these ushers. We're trying to get me to leave and I had a ride so hard like I had snaffled into my jacket sleeve. It was like it was a bad scene for me So it's very special. That's where we met and then we spoke for the first time. I heard your story and I heard more about in. I have been so happy to see how the rest of the year unfolded for you. But what does it feel like for you to be on the side of it I think I'm still processing all of it because it's been such a roller coaster of emotions and I was telling the rest of the team this weekend. That in some ways sundance was the most meaningful moment. 'cause it's the introduction of your baby to the world and just having no idea how it's GonNa land and we were all together. You know that was what was so beautiful. Is that we. We are all in that same room and we all experienced it. We all brought our fears and excitement. And you feel like you're not sure and of course everyone's like looking at reviews right after but I think everyone felt the energy from the first moment that the room laughed. Everybody just broke into laughter and it was very unexpected to. It wasn't a place that anyone thought was like a hilarious joke moment. And then you know from there you can hear people cry you. Can you just feel this energy? This communal thing which is what's so beautiful about The theatrical experience and then the sale the late night like you know bidding war that you've heard about as a filmmaker that's like the dream and then you're actually they're being driven. I'm like in my PJ's with a giant co being driven into like this mansion. You're just like what is going on as what happens like late at night you know like they literally were like get out of bed right now. The car is going to be in front of your house. Get in the car like we're taking meetings you know it's like you're not sleeping. You're like celebrating. But you're anxious and we're all together and then the weird thing about this whole year. Is that for the rest of the year. You're kind of separated. You know it's like oftentimes at events it's like me Aquafina sometimes just me. Sometimes there's Jau sometimes you know maybe Danny's there but It just we just everywhere and you're not sure how many tickets we get to this thing or that thing in who can come and what's happening and a we lost. You know you're you're like. Oh we didn't get nominated but you're like trying to still like hold on to the feeling from that. You made a movie that mattered. And like we're all trying to like remind each other of that and but it's complicated and so by the end of the season it was like how do I bring everybody together. And so I rented a house and just said everyone come over. Watch the awards and let's just really like be in a small space together and my brother cooked and other show I'm brother WHO's a chef. Yes and he had come to China and men everyone and So I think when you were filming when we were filming yeah he actually came to China and hadn't seen anyone since then but that was really important to me because at the end of the day. It's like you know we know what we went through to get this film made. And you know we were on the ground and Battling and And and so I think it's just important not to forget those things and it becomes about like this other thing you're part of this bigger conversation and everyone so angry but for us. It's so like everyone does get angry. I'm like we made a film that's like eighty percent subtitles in Chinese. And no one wanted to make. And then it ended up making like twenty million dollars domestically in theaters. Like we've one guys like me but also yes. We should be angry. You know about the bigger picture about what we're but at the same time it was important for us to just feel feel the weight of The change and and and what everyone contributed to okay so in this scene? Billy's visiting her parents when she senses. Something's not right and this is before they go to visit nine. Nine China and Billy's prodding her mother and she gets some surprising news. Billy's mom played by Diana. Lynn Speaks I. I always going to leave like this. Parbat sexy I hope so. Why not try to save them? You should change expensive lifestyle. Give me shit every time I come home. I'm not coming home anymore voice. Xp Beats Evening at six PM. What's wrong with them? Nothing tired see okay. He's fine. We just busy busy with white. It's going on getting married so we'll have to go to China since when girl you. You don't need to go no expecting you to go. I mean it only cousin days. They should be there okay. Knocked her up. How as you want five. That's not enough. Make a dozen cans. Good I love this movie. And there's also such a great international cast here from time up playing Billy's dad to Zhao Shuzhen. Who Plays Nine I. And they're filling in these great really specific nuances across generations in his family. When I heard you talk about what you were asked to do to the film what financiers wanted and when ironically heard that the farewell was classified as a foreign film. I cringed really hard in this very specific way. It kind of felt like what the film was going through. His what Asian Americans go through and part of that is probably because this is a story inspired by your own actual life but you talk about how you like push back against all of this stuff You know why did you push back? And and and do you think people understood what you were trying to say or whether you're just trying to change it I think that when I was first pitching eat people. Don't ask questions enough in this town. I think I think that's a something to look at because you know as journalists. That's the first thing that you do. Is You interrogate. You ask questions you try to understand and I think that so often in Hollywood. The first thing that is done is such a cynicism that immediately you pitch a story and it's immediately like how do we make it like that other successful movie and when you're film doesn't have a lot of calms Which is like the industry term comparisons And you can't like name like a calm. That didn't do well like that's not gonNA work. You have to name a calm that similar in tone similar plot and then also successful in the box office. And you'RE GONNA like you're like this foam is going to be like that and it's going to do just as well but when you're trying to do something original that you can't have that so. I think that was the pushback from the People. Initially pitched it to where they were like. We have to change it to be more like one of these other films already exists and I was trying to say actually. I'm trying to do something that hasn't been done But it's based on my own experience and that's why I wanna make it because I haven't seen this before so that was really challenging this interesting. It's almost like a structural response against new stories. If you can't related to old stories it's harder to understand Lulu also did this American Life Story version of the farewell That came out. How many years ago was it? The two thousand sixteen thousand sixteen so that was kind of like the first. Go at the story. Yeah exactly and then of course when I did this American Life. The experience was so different because it was like that's fascinating. Why did your family do this? And how did you feel about it? But then how did they feel? And the what did you say? And then what did your mom saying? What did your dad? San was all of these questions that some of which I had the answers to some of which I didn't have the answers to and I said well let's explore that. Let's go talk to them. Let me call my great aunt because you know what I actually never asked her that question and so through that process. I got to understand my own story. Better it's engine. You bring up ca kind of having to call your great aunt. Both Gin and I have had to tell stories about our own families on occasion is very awkward sometimes chosen to really yeah. Yeah but then. There's this like really complicated responsibility that you take on. How do I tell my family story? How much of my family's story do I want to reveal? How much of my own family's experience have I processed myself and understand and you're so scared to get.

"We're back and when we left off as May Wang had been diagnosed with schizophrenia spectrum disorder so caroline what are we talking about? When we say schizophrenia? Okay we'll general schizophrenia. Means that someone has psychotic symptoms and sometimes loses touch with reality. You know they hear things that aren't real or believe things that aren't true now. Schizo AFFECTIVE DISORDER. Which is as maze. Diagnosis is a little different. It's like a blend of those schizophrenia. Symptoms plus symptoms of a mood disorder like the Depression and mania associated with bipolar disorder. And the schizophrenia is have been around since forever. It's also taken practically forever for doctors and scientists figure that out in the early eighteen. Hundreds for instance. The closest diagnosis was broken brain. Which I mean talking about phoning it in. Yeah and it took another seventy years for it to be classified as a unique type of mental illness initially called dementia Pre Cox or premature madness. Then in one thousand nine eleven. A Swiss psychiatrist named Uganda boiler coined schizophrenia from the Greek for Split. Mind are Swiss. Mr also defined the Schizophrenia Xlt Trim Aka a range of disorders. Not just one thing. People tend to Miss Label and stigmatize folks on the schizophrenia spectrum as having split personalities being quote Unquote Psycho and possibly even dangerous. But in reality the schizophrenia is are much more varied and complicated. Here's as may again. I think often the appropriate type of crazy is the kind of crazy that people have accepted to this point. I mean even in the mid to late ninety s people were just starting to accept clinical depression and anxiety. Whereas I think schizophrenia or the schizophrenia or psychotic disorders are still seen as more stigmatized than depression. Anxiety and because SMI's or serious mental illnesses are so stigmatized going out of your way to look quote unquote normal or even exceptional is a common coping strategy. Like I know that because I dress well and I can speak eloquently that I am treated more well than people with the same diagnosis who may not be as high functioning. Who can't say they went to a fancy school or that they can pass as somebody who doesn't have a really serious mental health diagnosis. I am always really cognizant of passing as high functioning and at the same time I wrestle with whether that's something that I should take advantage of and how I use that. How much do I use that privilege of being high functioning? The freeze high functioning is really looked at With a lot of caution in the disability rights community which makes a lot of sense because it does not make sense to treat. People were so called high functioning better than it is to treat people who are not yet. That's very much the case. It seems like so much being considered quote unquote high functioning boils down to appearance. Like do you look crazy for asthma. She writes unless I'm catatonic. I do wear red lipstick and Chanel Foundation. I do have short platinum hair. I do wear eyelash extensions. I sometimes go for months without showering but I do not look disheveled but more than anything. Maintaining a paying job is the gold standard of being high functioning. If you can make money if you can contribute to the you know the capitalist machine then you are high functioning If you spend your days smelling flowers and lying around and watching TV then you are not high functioning and you are perhaps worthless or lazy or any of these other words the people might fling at people who are not quote unquote high functioning so much of the idea of being high functioning as linked to money and whether one can make money or be part of that world. That's why quitting her full-time editing job. In two thousand thirteen felt like a crack in her high functioning armor. Like as long as make it. Hold DOWN A job jobless Shirley. She couldn't be that crazy but that's stressful. Job Job had been triggering psychotic episodes the year as May left stable employment she'd also experienced what's called Qatar delusion also known as Walking Corpse Syndrome for nearly two terrifying months as May was convinced that she was literally a dead woman walking by then as May had also been involuntarily committed to psychiatric hospitals three times as she wrote for those of US living with severe mental illness. The world is full of cages where we can be locked in. Also things like psychiatric emergency hold laws mean that people who are experiencing psychotic symptoms may be involuntarily committed and while the point of those laws sure is to stop people from hurting themselves or others. When you're living with a very unpredictable mental illness they can feel terrifying to will ask like well How likely is it that you will have another psychotic episode or like? How do you know when you might have another psychotic episode and the answer is really? I don't know I could have another psychotic episode. As soon as I leave the studio I could have another psychotic episode night or I could have one tomorrow or I mean. These things are so unpredictable. You know I take it not just a day but hour by hour minute by minute and yeah who knows. I'm kind of asking this question to you as someone who's both studied psychology and is dealing with some of these issues herself. Is it weird to you that like some of these things aren't able to be better predicted? Like I'm thinking of a thing that can't really be compared but like for instance migraines makes me so upset that you know so many women experience is terrible migraines all the time and yet sciences like man. That's confusing right guys. Does it ever feel weird to you that some of these things can be so hard to predict? No I I think I it. It is so frustrating. I think that especially when I was a much more likely to be physically ill on a regular basis It was so hard for me to make plans with people or make you know work plans Because I didn't know if I would be really sick At any given moment so I could make an appointment. say To have a phone call with a potential client for something and I had no idea if I would just be like horribly ill In the next hour or at that time of that phone call And so It is frustrating. And it's so confusing and it's so hard to know how to live your. We're GONNA take a quick break when we come back. As may tells us what happens when chronic illness it's hustle culture and how disability has changed her approach to ambition. Stick.

"I really wanted to be able to be seen as high functioning and I wanted to be able to be seen as normal and if people found out about my diagnoses. I wanted them to see me as like. Eah The person who had this serious diagnosis but who also graduated from Stanford with a three point nine. Gpa So it scared me that. I had these symptoms that I couldn't control ninety minute. All and welcome to One lady like they show that finds out what happens when women break the rules. I'm Kristen I'm caroline. And that was today's guest as May wage and Wang author of the New York Times bestselling essay collection. The collected Schizophrenia Carolina. I've been wanting to talk to as may for a while now. I stumbled across her a couple of years back when I was going through a scary mental health period of my own. As I mentioned before on unladylike I have generalized anxiety disorder and at that time like on paper. Everything looked good. You know but I was spiraling on the inside and it was honestly so unsettling that I didn't know how to talk about it and I didn't WanNa talk about it or not. I think I was scared. That talking about it would make it feel even more real and it felt like a burden. I didn't WanNa put on anyone else like. I just desperately wanted to figure out how to get myself back together. And that's actually how I ended up on as May's website. It's called the unexpected shape as basically all about getting your creative work done while also living with mental or physical illness and I was just so struck by how openly she talks about having a serious mental illness. Yeah in her. Mid Twenties as May was diagnosed with schizophrenia disorder which she describes as the fucked up offspring of manic depression and schizophrenia is almost like a demon that takes over a person The schizophrenia causes a person to no longer be themselves whereas depression and anxiety think are often considered to be quite awful but they are more considered to be things that are layered on top of a person. You know there's something that somebody is dealing with. they're not something that takes over or empties out a person or places. The spirit of a person in the collected schizophrenia is as may details her journey to what she calls the inappropriately crazy end of the Mental Health Spectrum Aka. A the most unladylike end and she's far from alone there an estimated one hundred thousand five. Americans live with serious mental illness or SMS. The most common ones are schizophrenia. Spectrum disorders severe bipolar disorder and Severe Major Depression. But as may also occupies a very particular space on that unladylike end of the spectrum. She doesn't fit. What we think schizophrenia. Looks like you know. She's not visibly unhinged or unkempt. She's a Yale and Stanford educated award-winning writer. Who's married her? College sweetheart has plenty of friends and frankly dresses. She gives fog. She does and I was really drawn to this idea of someone who is killing it on the outside all the same time. Her mental illness is sort of escalating on the inside. So today we're talking with asthma about navigating serious mental illness. How it shapes her ambition and why wanting to be seen as high functioning is so important to her and quick note. Y'All we're getting into serious mental health issues in this episode including psychosis in suicidal idealization. So heads up. If you're sensitive to those topics only as I grew up in Michigan and was raised by her Taiwanese immigrant parents. She started reading at two and wanted to be a writer by the time. Most kids are learning to tie. Their shoes. Baby was not messing around when she was about six as me. Sent a letter to the publisher. Little Brown asking how she could get her works in print already and they actually wrote me. Back I remember. They wrote me back the types letter typewritten letter and they said I needed an agent. So yeah I I've I've wanted to be a writer for a very long time. That's funny to tell a child that you need an like yeah. I've imagining some kind of like intern or assistant just thinking like you know. How should I respond to this kid? But alongside her big writing dreams. Sba had to deal with extreme evolving and often completely mysterious mental health issues and they also started when she was really young. When I was four or five I remember having issues where I would just filled with anxiety in compulsion. I remember this one evening where I was going to get up and get a drink and then we go to the bathroom and then I would feel like I needed to go to bed and get a drink and then go to the bathroom and I did this over and over again. Compulsively fan ended up standing at the top of the stairs and I just burst into tears and my mom said why are you crying and I just said I can't stop with puberty. Came depression anxiety and insomnia. By the time she was a teenager as me was having suicidal thoughts inserted seeing the high school counselor and at some point. She told me you're going to have to see a psychiatrist. This is getting really serious and so one morning. I told my mom before school. I've been seeing a counselor and she thinks that I need to see a psychiatrist and Mommy yelled at me. She was so upset so angry. She said we've always given you everything you've needed. You have close to where you have food. Who have a roof over your head? How could he do this to us? And I. I remember crying in the car on the way to school and crying I skipped first period and I was just crying in the art room. Eventually as May and her mom went to see the psychiatrist together he was a white man and he asked my mom in front of me. Is there any history of mental illness in the Family? Which is a very ordinary question to ask in this kind of like diagnostic meeting. And my mom said no. There's no history and I learned years later that there was quite a strong history of mental illness. My family and I asked my mom. Why did you tell that first doctor that there was no history of mental illness and she said In Chinese essentially wall? It wasn't his business and I think that kind of cultural stigma was a lingering factor throughout all of my diagnoses. Her diagnoses plural started with clinical depression and anxiety then the summer after as graduated from high school. She was exhibiting enough signs of mania that our psychiatrist diagnosed her with bipolar disorder. And my mom was just like okay. She didn't know what it meant. Really she told me years later that if she had really understood what it meant she wouldn't have let me go to school especially not across the country and not by myself as May was eighteen and a couple of months later she left home in California to start her freshman year at Yale. Now as many psychiatrists recommended that she wait to start taking her new bipolar medication until she got settled. Yale and could start working with someone there. This meant that there was a stretch of months whereas may was dealing with the stress of starting college and experiencing bipolar symptoms. That delay was the first domino to fall. That ultimately resulted in as May being hospitalized at the Yale Psychiatric Institute twice her first year there after the second time Yale sent packing then in her early twenties after she'd restarted her college career at Stanford as me began experiencing intermittent symptoms of psychosis. Psychosis is either hallucinations. So false sensory experiences hearing bang seeing things feeling things physically in the actually hearing things like you hear them as though they're actually there and then delusions are false beliefs..

I think I think we're at a state where we sort of like we know technologically where we need to get to like in some sense the full engineering problem has mapped out right and every year the systems are getting better and better and better not only are they getting more data but we're sort of being more nal in our approaches. We're getting better. Sensors regain better compute etcetera. So every year we're getting closer and closer to the sort of like were we know from entering perspective we need to get to and unfortunately fortunately the end. This is just a reality in the industry that I actually think was fine. There were some very aggressive estimates. If you ask five five people and self driving when they think it will happen you'll get five different answers. And and the ones that were the earliest publicized right. But that obviously means if they're the ones that are the earliest than maybe the least. It's likely to be true. So there was sort of a lot of optimism that maybe incorrectly seeped into the the public understanding of self driving but the reality is like we know what we need to do to to improve the technology. There's a lot like some of the smartest people in the world are working on the problem and it will get there certainly within do time and I do think within the next couple of years there will be. There will be deployments that are meaningful. I mean maybe we'll all fighter phoenix in. You'll be able to see like okay. This stuff is is actually really legitimate. Take the WAYMO cars for example. Actually do Dr Quite well and this is like and despite despite what what different articles will say I mean fundamentally they Dr Quite well and so and so we're we're kind of at. I mean these things always follow hype cycles right. We're at the valley after the peak right and we're at the point. Where Oh maybe you'd be extremely pessimistic but the reality is like it'll happen keeps getting better? It's just more of A. It's less one of those kinds of problems that that you could sort of. You could set a deadline. And if you're nearing the deadline and it's not perfect you could just say let's ship it and like a Pash Hashtag holes that it is just like a different kind of problem that you need to by the time you're shipping. It feel feel pretty good about everything that you have and so it just doesn't really follow that the the like that kind of Engineering Paradigm. That is sort of like famously. Popularized by Steve Jobs or whatnot reads set a date eight. And you'd get it done in like if it's not done by then you like patch holes and just get it out there. You just can't take that approach in this in this particular problem is probably not a problem where you want intuition to be guiding your product development. Yeah Yeah for sure like a lot of the stuff that I think people thought would never happen. are actually happening are very exciting. For example. There's always this belief that lighter would be incredibly expensive. Well it turns out that now. There's manufacturers like China that have made significant strides in the manufacturing process and maximum manufacturing efficiency. And if if I had to bet I do think in the future that like lighters will be inexpensive enough or sort of like inexpensive enough. Where where it's actually is no longer longer this glaring price tag over one hundred thousand dollars or one onto put it? Put It on a vehicle. I think the same will happen for specialists compute for self driving. The same thing will happen for everything else. And so the forces of the marker definitely pushing pushing us to a world where were it's so much more feasible and so much less outlandish than it than it wasn't a pass overalls. We're all.

"Of more more it's more stable it's worth pointing out that we're doing this interview in person we could have just as easily done it over voip but you you and I both know that there are unspoken communication points eye contact contact. Am I distracted. How is my body language when I'm reacting to a question? These things are her proof. Points of a culture. Do People feel comfortable on average. Are People actually focused on their your work. These are things that you can't totally convey with as much bandwidth over the Internet. It doesn't matter how alumini words are in your employee handbook. I'm sorry employee. Handbooks don't get communicated through Osmosis you have to actually read it. Like compiling piling code takes time and reading an employee. Handbook is compiling a lot of code for your brain and I think it's a loss process. I'm fascinated by get lab but I am. We'll see right like I think the jury is very much still out on whether that experiment will work and I think think a lot of it comes down to. What does the tooling that we need? I'm very glad get. Lab is running this experiment. I think it's beautiful. I'm a huge fan of said. But you know we'll see slack. Good enough offers zoom good enough. Yeah again I think it's like it's very it's great. These experiments are being run right. Because they're sort of like until you're actually run the experiment you'd never know and I do think I'm really hopeful that so yeah definitely hopeful that that get lab continues to be as as wildly successful. They have been. But I'm also hopeful that like more and more companies try different slight variations right and that we sort of you out. What the exact route? Maybe not the exact right but what would a very reasonable sort of mode it ends up looking like A. I think it's it's really exciting because there's new tools coming online every day. There's more and more information that people just absorb right. It's really interesting. What one thing? That's been kind of crazy right if I just think about the book zero to one one zero two one. I came out all of the ideas. I think we're very Fresh they were really new. They're really interesting at this point. Most of the ideas from zero to one basically entered the like the the lexicon of startup people right and so now all the ideas seem trite. But it's it's it's pretty crazy just in the publishing four or five years ago in this four or five years all those ideas have sort of become operating standards or or sort of like truisms to most people in the community even the culture of silicon mailing the ability for us to learn moves so quickly that I think Amir. I'm very optimistic. That like we'll be able to this remote work problem. Do you really think that book has been fully internalized. I think that book has has a lot more depth that has not been fully realized by Silicon Valley particularly the more controversial areas of it. Like scapegoating right like people don't really talk about that aspect of the book but there's like the scapegoating idea and arguably Elon. Musk Mosk was like the pay pal scapegoat right and people don't really talk about that to be clear. Yes there's definitely ideas in there that are not that people don't people have not fully internalized turn allies but a lot of the ones have have really been I think have really I mean they certainly have become very commonplace in a way that like I think that five years ago when you read it for the first time the big ideas the things that you would read about it when you first read it or when you read it when came out that would seem shocking or interesting are very different from the ones they would read now that when reading the book you'd find shocking or interesting that I agree with although I wonder like. Is that a proactive attractive. Like just being 'cause that's true all the good books you read you know like I'm rereading hard thing about hard thing. I read that book. I've read it a couple of times in the past I feel like I'm I'm reading a totally new book. Yeah I mean the. There's some function here. That's really hard to understand ray. It's like a function of where your head is at the experiences that you've rocked and had in the meantime meantime and then those shape your comprehension of the words that you're sort of like reading off the page. It's hard to say it's always hard to say other that that same kind of rubric of reflection and things seeming different at different times. You were at Cora for a year and a half. Yeah roughly really. So I think you're at core of like starting when the company was probably like two and a half or three years old right somewhere on then. Yeah I'm trying to remember something in that range. Maybe three three or four years old. It's kind of interesting about the fact that you probably were at core around around a period where you are now at with your company and I bet you still feel like oh my gosh this is like crazy like the wheels are coming off here ear like I'm having trouble managing my psychology here. This person's about the quit this person's joining in there asking for way more compensation and then if you imagine yourself joining Cora it probably back in the day you're like I'm at a new job and it's great in this company so well run. Oh waffles in the morning and the what's at night I too. Yeah isn't that interesting to reflect on. How probably how how intact the company felt when you joined relative to I? I bet how you feel right now. It's a very valid very valid point. Right which is when I joined Kwara again. It was actually even even smaller caller into headcount than than scale. Now it felts. You're right intact is the right word of health intact. It felt stable. Felt like if like most a lot. Everything's been figured out and if I think about scale certainly from my perspective I feel like nothing's been figured out we've allow more work to do and we have like so many things that we could be doing so much better and I think a lot of this actually the way I think about this actually is like it's actually about sort of like the context they gain and so he made this comment earlier. About how like the communication of values for example right. I actually I sort of have this belief in general about about most things that like most things are really tricky to understand so so the the communication of them is almost always really losses. So when you first join a company I'm sort of like early on in the company you never really know what all the nuances we're all the heart things etcetera so and so that means that you sort of think everything's intact you think that there's is like that the things are good in general and then as you learn more and he's gained more context and you sort of like really understand all the problems that be you gain you gain a really deep appreciation just like Oh my God things can be like. We have like there's so much passion things can be a lot better like I think about over over the time over my time at core four I even and as I learned more and more right I had like more and more confidence and more intuition about various things that could be done better and I sort of like I understood pursued more and more about how I should say basically how much opportunity there was like you really that over time as you understand the real the creepy crawlies and then that scale benefit which is like I've known all the creepy crawlies or or have gone to know the real the nuances over time and it benefits me and understanding How he could be doing better always felt chorus super underestimated and one of the things that made me feel that way early on was I felt like the company had a pretty pretty distinct approached engineering? And I can't quite put my finger on Wyatt's distinct but I'm sure you have your ideas. What are the places cases where you disagree or diverge with how engineering is done at core things that you've implemented at scale where you're like? We're we're not doing unit testing as much as core like we're just were throwing that out the window too many tests core too much work. That's a really good question actually is how you do. Engineering is sort of is deeply tied to the overall culture and style of the company. So one thing that I is certainly very different rate is that Cora as as a product is sort of relatively stable in the sense that like they'll launch a few large new products a year but for for the most part. A lot of the optimizations are happening. Sort of either under the hood or small parts of the small parts of Cora like it's there's sort of this view at Kora which I think is fair given given how that has worked today it was like this large complex machine and then we sort of you take a holistic view. You and you have sort of a a more a more consensus based view on how you tweak the machine right I think that philosophy I really especially based on what we're working on it scale whereas you mentioned right. We have a lodge room products a lot of surface area and there's a lot of the surface area on with our customers. Their surface area with with a lot of the allegations are surfacing with with the sort of labor side because of all of this all the service area. It's important that I think at scale that we we sort of just like move really fast on making decisions in it's more it's much less consensus basis sort of more okay. There's like thousand thousand flowers blooming or whatnot like people. It's okay if a lot of people are sort of like running in potentially even different directions as long as like we're making changes in moving very quickly and then this trickles down into some things about how a saw fringing ends manifesting which is overall the fast break things culture which. I'm sure you've heard a lot about but I do think it's like you shouldn't need to invest that much testing. You should take an approach where it's like it's more okay for things to break and that you you sort of like you'll see the overall system is like the engineers plus the code right in that whole ecosystem will adopt things as long as you sort of have a fast clock speed indeed and a fascination speed that sort of thing that dominates those maybe one really really core thing that I took away from my time quarrel on another thing that I think they did that I I disagree with but not again this is like this is just. I think this is a different strokes kind of thing quite right. Invested a lot into data and invested and had very good hygiene and understanding of all the date on the platform form and everything that was happening. And what I notice is like the full emphasis on data had a cost which is people operate less through intuition and the gut feelings that people had. If it wasn't backed up in the data is very hard to figure out justify those things and I do actually actually think that like especially today in today's fast moving world you need to be able to act in situations where you where you might just have intuition reminders of a gut feeling thing and I think that kind of being able to do that I think is really is really important so especially if you want to launch a bunch of new products over time Were you want to try crazy new things all the time. So that's another thing that I think that a lot of organizations that operate in this very dated or anything facebook. This book does as well for example anything that that hurts in sort of this ability to make to make good quality of decisions looking for a job is painful and if you are in software and you have the skill set needed to get a job in technology it can sometimes seem very strange that it takes so long to find a job..

"So I feel no one told you before just came up with day, but this is about Phil Wang and comedy on demand being funny on demand. Okay. I'm going to disappoint you. I would like to start with asking you just to be funny on demand. This happens all the time and it never works out. Well job. I guess it is my job, but the demand is often given the with warning, as you know when the gig is, you know the circumstances around the geic and you can prepare today. I was just told come to this field. It. They were more details. I, I do you guys a disservice. There was a time given as well. Say, see, feel you often start shows or at least shows that I have seen of you. It was by introducing yourself. Why as you go name central to your comedy. Because then people can look me up. They cannot say the program. Yeah, I don't know. Maybe this makes me Niki. I've always used my name is something of an identifier. But that's just how I guess. I'm gonna egomaniac lie that I do say Philo Wayang my name's Alang throwing a lot of the start of a set. It's not. Yeah, did not for a lack of material elsewhere. It's it's the fine the level it is also to kill some time. Well, my first Apollo appearance which is two years ago now, and my thinking was just what people find the name Wang and inherently funny, and I want why? Because it means penis here apparently. Okay. Wang. Why? No Wang Wang. Also Munis also means to throw something I think in the west country needs to throw something. It's a good sort of punchy name in Chinese. It means king, but the majesty's lost somewhat here. And so I just say, fill wearing a lot because then in grains, my name and people's heads and come, people come away from the set, remembering my name because I say to you and I say, rhythm, and then they can find me on quitting, say, to achieve under rhythm. Filming, filming, filming for Wang. I mean, that's. Of applause. Thank you. Thank you. But he couldn't get the sorry, it goes to the heart of a load of your comedy is about which is about race and identity. Yeah, it's always been very fascinating to me race on a mixed race. My my father's chinese-malaysian my mother's, you know, from stoke. So she's prefer, sorry. Which side do prefer which side is in which parent. I don't know if I need a quiet dad. Very stoic. If I need some emotional support, mom, I suppose, but that's a pretty classic arrangement. Absolutely. Or do you mean Stoeckel Malaysia? I meant stuck overnight. I see. I only spent a week in stoke when I was born. That was enough..
