Dinesh Examines the Implications of a Third Political Party

"We all know that there's a good deal of political polarization in America, and it's often deplored as a bad thing. Wouldn't it be great if Americans could come together, but what is the way to respond to the polarization? Well, it turns out that there's a group of people and one or two in the democratic side and two or three on the Republican side. And they've decided that the solution is a new party. A third party, a centrist party that they call the forward political party. Well, it's kind of a weird name, first of all. And it sounds a little socialist to me. Doesn't like it, she goes, it sounds well, I mean, forward sounds a little bit like progressive. It sounds a little bit like, but I suppose what they would say is we're trying to find a way forward out of the polarization. Now, who's involved Andrew Yang now Andrew Yang is the tech nerd who ran for office. I think he ran for New York. And then he ran for mayor in 2021. And then he said, that's it. I'm out of the Democratic Party. Now that by itself is a good thing, but evidently Yang thinks that there is space for a new party and he's joined by some Republicans, although these are kind of has been former, old, establishment type of Republicans who are part of the, you know, the George H. W. Bush administration or the George W. Bush administration, so there is one guy who was part of the Trump administration, miles Taylor, a former Homeland Security official. And then David jolly, a former Republican congressman, a Christine Todd Whitman, a former Republican governor. Notice a common theme here, it's former. These are basically people who have lost office, can't really gain much traction, it seems like time has passed them by. They have no real constituency. So I think they kind of feel like if you put a bunch of losers together, you might get a winner by loser plus loser, plus loser equals winner, but generally loser plus loser plus loser equals three losers.

Why Mindy Kaling's South Asian Velma Won't Hit Home

"Mindy Kaling. The actress who won't tell us who the father of her baby is, but we all know it's a former costar. B. J. Novak, she has created a Scooby-Doo animated spin off velma for HBO Max and she's making velma a South Asian brown skin girl. And she doesn't give a shit. Who doesn't like the idea? She said, if a dog can solve crimes and thelma can be brown. Hopefully you'll notice my velma is South Asian, she said, and the people freak out, I just don't care. You know what make you freak out? Mindy, your purple gums. I don't like your purple gums. That make me a bad guy? Just being honest. Well, good. I'm glad you don't care because not many people are going to care for your show. Velma, which will be animated and for adults. HBO Max is going to expand their adult animated programming. Velma tells the origin story of velma dinkley. Not really a name for a South Asian, but whatever. Velma dinkley, the unsung and underappreciated brains of the Scooby-Doo mystery ink Yang. And after the animated show was announced, Twitter blew up with openly racist complaints about caving new project and some people pointed out how making velma into a studious Asian nerd also plays into stereotypes. Listen, this is the thing. I hate that it has to be a race thing. I really do. I just, I don't like them changing characters from what they are in the first place and have been for decades, to me it's very off putting. You can't make a new character. There's Popeye have to be Latino going down the road. What are we doing?

"yang" Discussed on Filmspotting

"Stay in sync. Another aspect of the film I love was the way you approach showing us glimpses of what this future world actually is. And glimpses is probably the right word. It's very subtle. And it does leave a lot to our imagination, which I appreciated, but I am curious if you were, let's say, handed the budget Steven Spielberg had on minority report. Which is a movie I was thinking about when I was watching the car scenes and the discrepancy between the way you approach those scenes, which still tells us everything we need to know. And focuses on those characters versus it being about the chaotic future world. Would you would you as a filmmaker want to utilize those resources to paint on that type of canvas, or even if you had it available to you, would you be like, this is the story I'm trying to tell. This is the way I want to do it. Yeah, certainly at that time, no, you know, I was just, I think I even had written in the script that there was going to be and I didn't even imagine any kind of budget for it. So I was already sort of thinking about the story I wanted to tell. And I had really started telling people that it's really a story of interiority. I think it obviously Yang's interior and Jake getting lost in his own thoughts and memories. And so I wanted it even to physically for it to be an interior store. And I think at one point I had written the script, you never see the outside world except through windows and reflections and we did end up showing two or three shots that felt like the world, but I was never really interested in only seeing it through certain spaces, but to keep it largely in the house of this family and then in these auto cars to kind of get a little feeling of it, but really it's also about being inside that car. And seeing feeling any kind of exterior through the windows. Yeah. Yeah, so that was always a part of the plan, but you know, it's interesting because obviously since then I've done pachinko and I have been thinking about immersive possibilities, but yeah, I don't know if I would. You know, I would probably spend the money on other things, you know, like you know what I really longed for was I did explain that house in the city as a city in a forest, which I always have wanted to see. But you know, there was just like some limits to that. And it might have built that world out a bit. But yeah, I don't think it would have been that much different. Yeah. You mentioned earlier that you're not shooting a lot of coverage. And I think that that's apparent to anyone who's probably paying any kind of attention to both of these films. But there are moments in the film, whereas we see different memories played back. We see variations on certain line readings. And I wanted to ask you about how you came up with those variations where those things that were scripted and shot very specifically and deliberately to have that kind of tone or that alteration in tone. Were they then sort of carefully orchestrated in that way? Or did you give the actors room to interpret and vary? Is this something you believe? That the end at the end is also a beginning is also the beginning. The film has these different realities, some are human memories, some are Yang's memory, some are the camera, you know, and all of those do have a visual element, like me and the DP said, hey, you know, we won't make it obvious. I don't want to use tinted lens or have some time code that, but through cinema through what we have in film, you know, let's understand that when we're experiencing Yang, we're going to use this lens and this aspect ratio and the form will be a little bit different. And when we're in human memory, and this was I was very excited about this. I said, I'm going to use this repetition. And I kind of explained to him this idea and he understood it. But I never told the actors that. You know, so for the actors, they were just going to do these scenes a different way. They were just going to do it. And we were going to do it as different takes. And through the conversation, I did have them try different things. There was a moment when I could see that Justin was feeling very emotional, but he was trying to restrain it as being but I kind of knew that, oh, that would be very interesting if because it's a human memory for that subjectivity. And that's what I was interested in is that so anyway, all that to say, we just did different takes of it because I also felt like the way I wanted to deal with human memory and subjectivity was that we are often almost auditioning takes. In my mind, there was something about cinema itself that was so cinema is capturing memories and then figuring out what and so there was something about human memory that feels like that. You study human memory and they say that every time you recall a memory, it's different. It's never like a computer. You never remember the same thing over and over in the exact same way. And so there was just some element of this idea that you are moving through different takes of something to try to get to, I don't know even know if we were trying to get to the truth of it. I think the other thing that's interesting to me is and the thing that I love about human memory versus what we have on our phone is if we don't have this objective view of it, I think depending on what why we're searching in our minds for a memory, we are reshaping that memory. And there is something about the sweetness of those memories. And the elusiveness that was really interesting to me. Talking about catching up to grief. I don't know, I think in some ways those memories were more meaningful in their recollection of it than maybe it would have been if we just had a some objective view of it. And so when Yang is feeling, when she imagines him feeling sad, you know, I don't know if that's true or not. But I also like that idea that I don't know. You know, there's something also very collective about those moments too, that that feels almost like a collective memory. But yeah, so that was kind of the approach to it..

"Hi, Andrew. Welcome back. Hey, ayesha, how you doing? Good, it's so great to have you here. So after Yang is set in a not so distant future where people commute in pods and purchase human like androids as family members. Yang, played by Justin H. Min, is one of those androids, and he belongs to Jake and Kyra, played by Colin Farrell and Jodie Turner-Smith. Now the couple bought Yang so he could be a quote unquote big brother to their Chinese adopted daughter Mika, who's played by Malaya Emma shudder Wagyu. The intent was for Yang to provide companionship and a connection to her culture through what they refer to as Chinese fun facts. When Yang stops working, Jake and Mika set out to find someone who can fix him. This proves to be a challenge, though, as Jake bounces between two people who want to use yanks parts for their own purposes. Russ, a questionable technician played by Richie Coster and Cleo, a museum researcher played by Serena chattery. And in the midst of this journey, Jake discovers Yang's memory bank, which leads him to Yang's friend Ada, played by Haley Lou Richardson. After Yang was written and directed by kokona, adopting from the short story saying goodbye to Yang by Alexander Weinstein. The film is in theaters now and streaming on showtime. So Andrew, what did you think of after Ying? Okay, I'll be real. I watched it once and I didn't like it that much. Okay. And then I watch it again and then I loved it. I don't know, maybe it's like one of those like two furs because the world is so immaculately conceived, right? There's sort of implications that there was like a war between U.S. and China. There's a poster that hangs somewhere in the background. And we're not really sure what happens or who wins or whatever. But the architecture is pristine. Everybody's decked out in these sort of like panes and fits that go really hard, I got to say we got it like manifests. It's all like dystopian, but nice to look at. You know what I mean? I don't know. It's like a really unsettling vibe that I enjoyed the second time around watching it. I really connected with Jake played by Colin Farrell, who really, my guy's putting in work in this movie, dude. Yeah, he's great. I love him in this. Now, you said you watched it a second time. What made you want to watch it a second time? I don't know. I think my vibes just weren't right the first time I watched it. And then the second time in, I just really appreciated it more. Yeah. I actually was really all in for it. I think part of it is that I kind of knew what we were going into because I'd seen coconut is previous film Columbus. Coconut is very much interested in the mise en scene and the aesthetic and the architecture because in that movie, John Cho plays the son of an architecture. And an architect. An architect. I'm sorry, it's early where I am right now. And much of that film is actually the John Cho character and Haley Richardson, who is also in that movie, sort of walking around throughout this town in the city and looking at architecture. So I was kind of expecting a similar very quiet vibe. And so obviously there's levels to sci-fi and fantasy. And I appreciate the Star Wars and the things that are more obviously sci-fi, but I think I drawn even more to the things like this. This ex Machina where it's like, it's sci-fi, but it's still feels grounded in a way or feels like our world and you have to kind of figure out how far into the future is this world. So I really liked it. But I can also see sort of the criticisms that have been made about the film in terms of maybe not having enough information sometimes about the fact that there's some illusions to China and things that have happened. And where is this are we in the U.S.? Are we in China? Are we in a completely different? We never know, right? As far as I know, there's no sort of hint. And they commute in these pods. So these pods are in sort of these sort of Space Mountain Y 2001 tunnels. So you can't tell exactly where they are. I really love the fact that, you know, coconut has said in an interview that often when we have these sort of Android stories, the drive of the story is an Android wanting to become human. But what he was interested in was more like, okay, the humans around the Android realizing that the Android was actually more human than they thought. What did you think of that? I know you mentioned before we sat there and recorded this. The T scene. And so a little background Colin Farrell's character is like a tea connoisseur and he owns a tea shop. Do you want to talk a little bit about that scene and sort of what it meant for you? Yeah, it's so funny. He loves tea, right? You really feel like the juice of why he loves you and has less to do with how it tastes and more to do like the history and the work that goes into it in. But Yang, he's around to give you the Wikipedia facts about tea, right? We started in whatever year, right? And it was farmed by XYZ. And it's almost heartbreaking watching Yang listen to Colin Farrell talk about tea with such passion. You know, NT being like a very Chinese rooted drink, right? And Yang realizing like, I can't do that. I'm never gonna have that. I can't have that juice. It's really wrenching to watch this Android is like disconnected with his identity, right? And there's a lot of talk about this movie being what it means for an AI to be human and all those questions. Because of the cloud of war that's hanging overhead of this movie, I couldn't help but think about it's also kind of like almost like a refuge detail, right? This guy doesn't know is so disconnected from his houses or his home or whatever. And the question of, is he human or not a side? It almost doesn't matter, just because it's this thing that's feeling something. And it's feeling very lost. Yeah. We have a clip. I will say it's hard to find good audio for this because there's so many silences and moments, but let's actually listen to a clip from that tea, scene. I wish I felt something deeper about tea. I wish I had a real memory of tea in China. Have a place. If a time, I think this would what? Sorry. I lost my train of thought. That is sort of the crux of the whole movie. That is the heart of the movie. And to sort of see him stopping himself and being like, let me hold back here. Even that, in itself, is sort of a human quality of realizing what you might say and then pulling back in that moment, which I think is just really, really fascinating to watch. I got to say, when I was watching this scene, I was drinking some Lipton ST. Oh yeah, really, I thought it was like, yeah, I don't know. Okay, first of all, you need to up your tea game. Lift it, really? Andrew, you and I can talk. I love tea. But so what do you think about what this is? We mentioned it already, but a Yang is there in part because the couple wanted him to sort of give their child Mika fun facts, but also to sort of connect her with the culture, but it's like, well, of course, just giving fun facts. It's not the same as giving culture, but I didn't know exactly how to think about this. And I'm curious, you know, what you took away from sort of what's suggested about transracial adoption. Yeah. They're bad parents, right? They're naive. They're not. And they think they're doing a good job. But they picked the most hands off way to do this. To teach this kid about her culture of origin. And I think a lot of the movie is, you know, Jake sort of trying to learn to be a father, right? Because he has to bring his daughter around it. He sort of like learning how to connect with her by way of taking care of her robot, essentially her babysitter, right? Whatever happened, whatever world we're living in, I couldn't quite tell if this was like the norm of this world. Because these techno sapiens are like, not a dumb, it doesn't, but it seems like pretty common, right? He's like a refurbished version of one. And so I get the sense that whatever socioeconomic class they are, they're sort.

"Parallel dimensions. The fox universe, and then CNN universe and it is a little wild. And then even I see myself in the clips and there's kind of a different vibe. But it's also it's like the same person Andrew Yang with like a box Chiron and then like a CNN Cairo, you know, it's like it's different. It's kind of interesting. Yeah, I mean, there's a broader point there about, there's a different vibes with different sub communities. So I don't get a politician vibe from you and I hope that you take that as a compliment. I feel like I can present you with data. I can talk through the implications of certain facts and think through various policies and that you're not necessarily leading from an ideology that you're committed to no matter what. So that's kind of a different vibe. And again, I mean that in oh, I take that as a compliment. A high compliment from you Scott. You know, so much of politics seems to be about appealing to voters, selfish instincts or most immediate needs is probably a better way of putting it in selfish most immediate needs. How in the world can we change the incentive structure so we can get people caring about deep existential risks that are so far in the future. So there's two things. One is how do we get people to care about other people as much as they care about their own needs? You know, like making decisions and choices that may not necessarily affect their own satisfaction needs, but will help those who are really needy. And then the second is, how can we care about future people that we've never been met that aren't even alive yet? Like saving the planet. There's two things. Let's look out for them. So I have some encouragement on this, which isn't right now, it's not that people are self serving on a policy level. Right now they're indulgent on a tribal level where it can because they're being inflamed in that way. So you have the different media channels trying to gin you up and get you super mad about the outrage on the other side. And so when you talk about the immediate need that's being met, it's really an emotional need or a tribal need or a sense of belonging. And so our challenge, then, is to build a tribe that cares about long-term existential problems that cares about the well-being of the general public that cares about solving problems in a meaningful and measurable way. And one reason I'm excited to have this conversation with you is I have a feeling that just about everyone that listens to you naturally kind of hearkens toward that tribe. And you don't need 51% of Americans to be part of that tribe. I'm saying you need 10%. And I actually have a feeling that if you built a really strong 5%,.

"Into a random coffee shop and whatnot, that's a better thing to do than being like, hey, hey, next thing next thing is because the way you think of a productivity on a campaign is output. It's like if Yang has a spare 5 minutes that I should try and get him to call someone or do this or do that and that would be productive. But at the extreme end that ended up becoming counterproductive because then I would just do things worse. Over become negative. So that kind of struggle. I mean, what sort of anxiety management techniques do you have? And not just anxiety management, but you seem to have this great ability to constantly renew the energy. But you do it in an authentic way. And this is something I like about you. Every time I talk to you, it feels like not like I'm talking to a politician, but I'm talking to, well, dare I say a friend. Or just like a human, but you're also you're an authentic. We started off today before we even started recording. I said, how are you? And you're like, I'm okay. And I was like, wow, what a, what an honest answer. You know, I mean, it's a very subtle thing to just say, I'm okay, but someone who is trying to put on a show and kind of not and be something that they're not feeling would be like, I'm great, you know, and how are you? You know. And I really like your authenticity and that way. So how do you balance your authenticity with that feeling or that need to keep renewing this kind of interest in people when you're talking to someone when you're talking to people so long and over like you said you're an introvert? So I totally resonate with that..

China Lockdowns Should Give Olympic Athletes Pause

"Earlier this morning, Reuters reported what was in the Financial Times last night that they have locked down additional cities in China, including Tianjin, which is 62 miles from Beijing, zhengzhou, and Yang Jian and uzo. They say it's a Macron. I don't know we can believe on anything. Do you think Olympians ought to be going there? If I were an Olympian, I would be taken a deep breath before I'd go there. And let's face it, China is going to use the one tool that they have used consistently through this whole thing, which is massive authoritarian techniques. Everything from massive lockdowns of huge cities, economic isolations, all of that.

Judge in Rittenhouse Case Criticized Following ‘Asian Food’ Comments

"The judge in the Kyle rittenhouse case. Ordered Asian food in. I don't know for the jury for I don't know for whom, for himself. And made the following comment, you will now hear it from the judge. So this is now being played on CNN. The judge presiding over KAR rittenhouse's homicidal homicide trial made a strange and offensive joke inside the courtroom today. I want you to listen to what judge Bruce Schroeder said as the court was preparing to take a lunch break. Let's hope for one o'clock. I don't know if the Asian food isn't coming. It's on his not one of those boats and Long Beach harbor. So he appears to be referring to the supply chain backlogs caused by congestion problems in California ports. But his comments were offensive and perceived as anti Asian by some. And as placing blame on Asian people for a catastrophic event happening in this country. John Yang, the president and executive director of Asian Americans advancing justice told CNN that the joke and I quote here, harms our community and puts us in the crosshairs of microaggressions as well as actual physical violence. That's CNN as my producer just said. Where did they find us the Asian action association for justice or something? You see how they lie? I don't lying. Is not an issue to the left. The judge ordered Asian food, and made a crack, I hope it's not being delayed. In the Lake. How is that possibly anti Asian?

"The way in, as someone said, how much is this device? And then they said, one month of UBI. And so I have a feeling that adoption would pick up. But if people had money in their pocket, they would also be able to make better transit choices themselves, be able to balance their own needs in a more effective way. Right now we're making all of these bizarre time money energy tradeoffs where someone is spending an extra hour or two to save ten bucks to get to a certain place. So if you were to put money into people's hands, they would make, I think, more efficient decisions, and I think that would end up improving both our infrastructure and people's personal choices. And in the time since you first introduced UBI as part of both your presidential and mayoral campaigns, has your thinking on that evolved at all. Have you even the amount have you thought about a different amount that people might need? What experiments seem to be working for you right now? You all remember when I was running for president and saying, I want you to get a $1000 a month. And people thought of it as fanciful or far out. And now we're living versions of that. I think we all know this, right? Someone's laughing. I mean, tens of millions of Americans got the $1400 check the $600 check, the $1200 check. 70 million Americans are getting a child tax credit, typically $600 a month over the last number of months. It's alleviated poverty in those families. Now, if anything, Andrew Yang's $1000 a month plan doesn't seem aggressive enough, you know what I mean? People are like, oh, a thousand. Why stop there? So I'm a huge supporter of this child tax credit. My only complaint is that it's not in perpetuity. And that it doesn't go to people that don't have kids. So would you in a future campaign basically not only extend UBI as you've put forward, but actually change the amount that American households would be getting? I think we should be in position to think bigger. A $1000 a month still seems like a fairly good sweet spot because it's enough to lift people out of poverty still, but it's not enough to completely distort one's incentives because it's just a foundation. But I'm open to more. And we're getting more data all of the time. The two big objections I got when I ran for president. And this is something that many of you can relate to. A neuroscientist in Seattle said to me that Andrew, your enemy is the human mind, because the human mind is programmed for resource scarcity. And when you go around saying that you can give everyone money, it doesn't compute for a lot of people. And he was right and that the biggest objections I got when I was running for president on this were number one, where do you get the money? At this point, this has been addressed because we've all seen that the cares act 2.2 trillion, the rescue plan 2 trillion. The $2.2 trillion cares act was enough to give every American a thousand a month for 6 months. Families got 17% of the 2.2 trillion. We always had the money. We could have done it any time we wanted to. And then the second objection I got was people aren't going to spend the money wisely. And we're seeing what people spend the money on in real life and it's exactly what you'd expect it to be. Food groceries, fuel, trying to find work. So the main objections I encountered as a presidential candidate have essentially resolved themselves. It's one reason why today a majority of Americans are for basic income in some form. 80% are for cash relief during the pandemic, which unfortunately we're still dealing with. So I'm thrilled and incredibly grateful to everyone who helped us make this case nationally. We've improved tens of millions of people's lives. The fact anyone who supported me, you should really feel that. You should know that we helped advance and accelerate the end of poverty in our time. But we are not done. The truth is that the dysfunction in Washington is going to keep us from enacting obvious solutions that would make people's lives better. I used to think that the problem was that people didn't know about universal basic income and I was determined to change that. Now I think the problem is that our government is not actually responsive to the people of this country. And my next mission is to change that too. I.

"I'm Lauren good. I'm a senior writer at wired. We have a special show for you this week. A couple of weeks ago, former presidential and New York mayoral candidate Andrew Yang made an appearance at the micro mobility America event in Richmond California. Now, Lauren, you're the one who interviewed him on stage. It was a pretty wide ranging conversation, wasn't it? We covered a lot of rounds and we talked about his new political party. At the time that we taped this conversation, it was in late September. And his new book wasn't coming out and October 5th, and that was sort of the moment at which he was announcing this new political party. But I had known about it in advance and had been reported in advance. So we talked about that. And the challenges historically in our country have introducing a new a third political party and what that looks like and why he thinks this time it could work. We talked a little bit about universal basic income, which he has in the past made a big part of his campaign platforms and I think which generally more people are coming around to the idea of or at least are willing to explore. And of course, because we are at a micro mobility conference we've talked about micro mobility. We talked about bikes and scooters and rideshare and things like that. And what his personal relationship is to mobility. And so yeah, I thought it was a really, I thought it was a really interesting conversation. And then after that we wrote some scooters in one wheels and stuff like that. Nice. So as you mentioned, Yang's book comes out this week, forward, notes on the future of our democracy. And this conversation we're going to listen to took place around two weeks ago. A lot has happened since that conversation with Andrew Yang. He's on this sort of publicity tour for his book and for his political party. So, you know, he announced on Monday of this week that he was going to leave the Democratic Party and switch his political affiliation to independent. He went on Tucker Carlson. That was a whole thing with his supporters, roasting him for doing that. So I didn't see that interview, but I hope I did a better job interviewing him than Tucker Carlson did. I'll have to check that out. Well, let's listen to the interview. And then.

We started more idiosyncratic and yet really masterful new kinds of of narrative exploring explaining and just giving experiences around very different ways of being asian american and blue by us is right up there In in that world of like the minorities so just wanted to give you props for that and maybe ask bit. What the origin story in some ways of of this film. Was you know what i mean. You know Being asian american we all know. Adopt these you know it's I'm sure we all know that. Adoption originated the idea of international. Adoption originated in south korea after the korean war. And you know the whole family went there and the kids off the streets or whatever the case that needed families place a nice christian families in the united states and over the years become a big business in and you can't tell an asian narrative that's inclusive without including that storyline Without including that experience in this in this country So you know i.

Because the I think headline was in. the arts. section was which classic classical paintings or paintings from the renaissance era should get a pass. And i said i thought what yeah that i don't know that. Let me out but to be fair most things. I didn't read it. You read this ahead. You're like you know what it's worth bringing up with allen. No and look maybe. It goes on to say really. Brilliant things and i wasn't paying attention. I just want people to know i read the headlines of the new york times pieces but who has time to read. All that stuff i guess the takeaway as conan doesn't want you to look jelly anymore. You can't look at it. i just don't over. i just think it's offensive. It's over venus. Objective is venus. Put clothes that shell up. Close that shell up. You have the misfortune slash fortune of being the writer. Who wrote the conic. Treat yourself episode of parks and rag doll. Yeah and i remember that episode. And i remembered also feeling like oh yeah that's going to be catch and then it became a catchphrase and it's a mixed blessing. Probably not as much for you but for z's walking around and again when when you say i wrote i put in quote and wrote in quotes. Because they might be on that episode but everyone pitches for every episode. And i don't even know who came up with. Treat yourself like i credit. I attribute that to the room. So but i will say. It is wild to walk around like trader joe's and it says trees and then i'm sure read it when they walk around and move through the world they get it a lot because it's like what what was that. Not even. it wasn't a thing before the show right. It wasn't really a thing you know. I i don't even. I just read the headlines of the newspaper so i thought before joe. The new york times has a headline about it that explains itself completely in the headline. I can't help you know. But i do think that's there's an interesting thing for there to become like a catchphrase out but i talked about with rob a little bit where his character had literally right so like his people would say literally to him now. So it's like okay. Well that's his. It's a it's a gift and a curse right. it's it can be a burden on you. Hey blind i know when i said this but when i walk around people say you suck guess that was my catch phrase it when when you gotta own it. It's a legendary. I know you mainly for you.

And i don't know if this is helpful at all but like sometimes we treat your depression. We say it's a sick day and you get sick day and you just well. That's what i will say. There is something to be said sometimes to letting yourself sink into it fully because when you really given you don't stay down as long. Yep june i mean because it's almost like i don't know by the way sometimes some people like you're on vacation and like after a few days. You're like yeah. I'm ready to do something. This is what.

You guys are my official therapist whether you know it or not the thank you. Well i'm here with another question I am in a relationship. Now we've been together for just over a year and it seems like it's really hard to have tough conversations when one of us doesn't like with the other one is saying or doing. I think we both get a little defensive. And i just i don't want that to be the case and i told my partner that i don't like how we communicate and i don't really see much change and i don't know how to a coasters without him getting very defensive. That's typically there's reaction is hosted meteorologist in kind of shut down. So how do i. How do i approach someone. Who's very defensive. It's really hard to to turn out things. And when i try to be immediately shut down those not gonna talk to you. Call me names or not gonna talk to. You is excellent and it seems you very tries to control how i and change things. I guess that. But how do i get past that. He is assessed. Cookie appreciate any help. You basically give especially because my ass cannot afford any actual therapy and again doctor any doctor naomi and illustrious guests. I depending on you. Thank you love. Y'all tell y'all is that we are not professionals. You here calling us doctor. I tell you but it may not be the right thing. That's all you gusto. That's accurate. I'll take it last year. That in philosophy. Oh god oh god masta around midday. Taking i get it. It's loving day. it happens jedi. Do you have any experience with the defensive. I mean really. Not even really like a romantic relationship. You know what kind of person whereas like you try to push back or tell them. I don't like this or this hurt me and they just shut down. yes My father also you know so many other relationships and one hundred percent at some point i had to learn the lesson that for the most part they will not change. And you just have to leave because you have no energy or time. I'm a very like you should leave situation. But i'm like i'll say this. I'm a person who has definitely stayed in relationships longer than i should have and people told me that so for me to tell you you should leave. I mean it's probably. I mean i. It's interesting because my first thought when you do say this okay. But here's the thing that. I started the by saying when you're both defensive yeah so i thought okay. What's going on was happening. And then you say he says. Don't call me names now. is he. Somebody who when you go. You're being really rude. He's like don't call me names or are you saying you're an asshole and call coming. Hey shit nick that is.

"I didn't know if you were like i'm worth more. Kkk jenny will defer to you first as our wonderful guest but if not naomi i know that you probably have A a warehouse full. Well i gotta get into one. Getting out nascar no jenny. How have you certainly do sound like somebody who you know. You look within yourself and you know your patterns and behavior. So i imagine that. What is the book for. Getting out of a funk. Yeah i think for me. Whenever i've been in a funk it it depends on. You're motivated because i think that's the thing i know what how i'm motivated you know. And and so. Whenever i'm in that place where i was like i don't want to do anything you know. i just i think what motivated by food. Even if sometimes. When i'm depressed i'm not gonna eat food a motivated by food in a motivated by friends and like yes all right and so social pressure you know like i'm very motivated by that so i know that if i'm in a funk and i don't want to spiral I start texting the friends. I trust and just be like paying a not in a good place I don't exactly know what i want. But i probably need to take a walk or whatever like like. You don't like it just because you could tell from the caller that they that they know what they need to do right because they're dying. They're diagnosing the things that they're they're they're doing the opposite it's bright keeping them in the funk and so you know if you take any one of those things that this person is is not happy about like eating too much for comfort or not seeing the sun. Maybe you might be motivated. Feel like this was against my better judgement of my brain right now. But i'm gonna tuck my friend to force me to show up at my door and then let's go take a walk. Maybe i just go outside pajamas right but at least i'm doing something but the key i feel like is to just take the tiny step of forcing some accountability or some kind of motivation to click. So whether that's social pressure or you know what i'm saying like yes post on social media honestly. I'm not even mad at that. When i feel sad for them. If like much publicly spiraling some. Sometimes they need to do that. you know. yeah yeah yeah. Yeah i think for me the simplest thing i would say i mean. It's all everything that you said. I agree with is totally right but to me. Sometimes i realize the the simplest thing i can do. I always need to physically move and leave my space. Meaning it's better for me like our checks. But i can come over like i need to get your house. I get an energy just being the house. It's like i call it stewing in my own juices house spiraling having all the thoughts. The house looks the way it always looks. Meaning there's nothing to break that circuitry break that race. That thought pattern because everything is what it is. I need to physically get out of the house. Like we're i'm that's what i really wanna go hang out tonight like it's funny lately. I have to get out of the house. Because i noticed when i'm in the house that's when i have all the time in the world just think about how i'm worried about things. Yes houses. not where do the most work really or like. I have to be out of the house or do something else for a very long time before. Actually get to the page or two writing. Whatever or whatever i have to be doing. I cannot be in a fucking house to do it and so that's what i was saying. This is the first thing you need to do is get out of the house and you know if you have a car if you got a good public transportation system whatever it is. What's the lowest easiest way for you to get your house. Because sometimes what i struggle within l. a. as a non driver like well then i got a call a lifted. Spend money and probably have a conversation with a stranger like doing. Yeah but you know if you can just like in your own like hop on the train and do whatever just walk. Yes you're have a friend pick you up my god. Can you imagine. I'm not a rocket over i. That's that's unusual for me. It's it's that simple. And also if i'm out of the house i usually am not eaten. I can't well if i'm out of the house in just like walking around. Nobody can deliver food to my local trauma. Pin right corner for forty minutes waiting absolutely die suggestion about the food stuff because during the pandemic i mean not that it's over real but like during the part where i wasn't vaccined i would say from. Maybe december two pout april twenty third when we were fully vaccinated. Inoculate i was. I was really in a funk and finding solace in food specifically around midnight or one am i would get myself a little bowl potato chips and pretzels and just watch. Tv and just shove them into my mouth until it tasted like ashes ashes. You're no longer getting pleasure from like. It's just the mechanical motion of like knowing your putting this bad food in your body so as we start to get out of that. I stopped buying potato chips. Or i bought like baked lay's which are not as damaging actual potato chips right. They're just more like little cardboard wafers. There's not much nutrition. One way or the other and that behavior stopped. And also i started to like by now that i could go to the supermarket without being afraid of dying. I found like salads. Quick i've been making the salad. It's like a bunch of greens. Strawberries cucumbers eights job days wild dates. Fyi world dates is a game changer. For salads of all types. Oh for real while. You don't like raisins if you don't like raisins dates. Wow they're really. Because i thought it was rial when i saw this salad looked gorgeous but i was like strawberries dates hueco. I didn't understand little french dressing. Couple croutons you're in business. I might even it a little bit of goat cheese at some point. Wow okay okay. Treat yourself right. Yeah find healthy. Foods that are delicious yet are not just like we're like oh. I have to eat this roasted vegetables and it was also a vegetarian where the veg- was kind of light.

"It'll only take ten seconds. And it helps us tremendously. Okay that's it. We love you deeply now back to the show and we're back here. We understand me jenny. Before we jump into questions. I just have one last thing. This go ahead. What precipitated your kind of costanza kind of i'm going to. I'm going to do everything opposite. Because i was like a storyline. That was like an episode of siva. George costanza did everything opposite is instincts and then he succeeded in life so what what changed what what gave you that. Costanza transformation to answer trim. Should i dated a guy who was You know we didn't have sex. It was a rebound from very you know not happy relationship and but we were still considered together even though we were not having sex like we just spent all our time together and then i realized he was triggering. My daddy issues Yeah where i was like. Oh why is he is just a tiny sign of anger. Making me trip the fuck out. Oh you know. And so. I was like look. I'm proud of myself for the moment. I realized this i was like i. I can't see you. I need to figure some stuff out. And he's like what. I'm confused and then took a week. I bought the book. Why does he do that. Which highly recommend. It's a hilarious heidel. But i highly recommend it. Because it's like a really good book that describes a psychology and how And the psychology of abusers of like usually usually abusive men abusers in general. And it's very illuminating in. It like gives you suggestions for how you break up with someone all these things you know and so you know nothing got physical but i felt the threat of that a little bit. You know with this guy i know. Because he's just. He had anger issues. And so did i. And that's why we again probably came together but But you know as women. We deal to anger different ways and so i I read the book. And i was like okay. This is hyper cup with him. And then i broke up with him and and that was when in my head. I was like okay. This is now. I'm feeling the full enormity and profundity of my daddy issues and my issues in general and how that gets in the way of a healthy relationship and so any instinct. I had to be attracted to someone and just go toward them. When i started seeing other guys. After that i would i would. If part of me that said oh no i. i'm i'm slightly. Repelled by this not because of anything. Real league repurchase like oh oh maybe. He showed tender soft gooey center here. I mean maybe maybe. I wasn't attracted to that. At the time i just went with it. Does that make sense. I just let myself go with it to say. This person is one hundred percent safe. Nice man yes so it wouldn't hurt just to go on a second date you know and see what happens in so i did that. And that's what got me into a relationship number one with my first white man. Because before that i did not think white men wow i know. That's all other conversation. And then but he he broke me. And then i as their what what to do. Don't you know he worked as kind gooey. Magic on me in friendly magic he was also the first guy data who wasn't like six feet tall So So he let me let me go against sort of i feel like somewhat superficial but deep seated ways that i've been socialized to find what part of masculinity was erotic more attractive right. A man needs to be this way. A man needs to be this way. And i think i think i grew from that. You know i was like because in my head. I always upset. My my friends are always like johnny. You just need to be gay. And i'm like i. I wish it was that easy. Because you keep on saying you're born this way and you know. And and but i know politically in relationship wise. That might make things different for b. But i can't. It's so. I must accept the plight of being very feminist. You know you know. Queer friendly of politics and vision of the world supporting that and yet. I'm here wanting to date football players. You know what. I'm saying like know me tarzan. You know i still wanted these very hetero. Normative ideas show. Yeah i hated it. I hated it. You know and so. I think that was part of the process for me. Wow okay now. I want to i want to do.

We're we're unvaccinated. I'm ready to breathe people's breaths which means i've accepted that i might catch a cold. The you know what i mean like. We've been. I've been without a cold for over a year. Which is green right. Stayed healthy so no stress sickness. Oh one hundred percent will happen. You know that's just for the course. Yeah but no. I mean yeah i feel like i feel like i've accepted that we're going to get back into germ swapping Now do you mean germ swapping terms of hooking up or germ swapping in terms of just like someone else's carries over Some kind of aerosolize d- bacteria listen. I'm in a monogamous relationship. But never say never. Wow okay that's huge. That's huge ad. Hoc a monogamous relationship. Now here's here's a question because we're recording this on loving day. Is this an interracial relationship. Is this not us day to you and your happy loving day. I didn't know today was loving day. Yes it's our day we did. It beat the odds. We fought back the system I was asking you just because obviously we're going to answer some listeners relationship questions but we start off knowing where guest is coming from whereas what their love languages are as. I say. we're going to go through your entire relationship. History ask from your first teenage love to now. I mean i never had teenage love. That's the thing. I'm a late bloomer. You are yes. I didn't like i didn't date until i was twenty one. Hold on and es unpack this this no crushes i- crushes okay your precious. I had fantasies that. Got me hot and bothered. Uh-huh uh-huh interesting you. One could argue. I was. I developed a little quicker than the average bear interesting. Okay you mean like but you know I did not like intimacy guys. Rarely boys were evil. Men were bad men. Therefore let's not engage with them. They were people to beat. Listen this is honest. Wow i love this honestly. Well i think i guess i say love is like i like that idea for a young girl to feel like there's something to beat as opposed to like i know i spent so much time being so worried about what they thought yes Thought that goes and he's trying to shatter the glass penis o. Eventually i did. Don't worry about it. But no but i one hundred percent like i probably deep down wanted voice to like me but in my head i was like no. I'm good school. And that's what i care about. And you know boys are mean. And i don't want to deal with it you know. It wasn't that was me. And until until i broke and then i was like i'm not gay. I fucking like the attention of assists. Hetman yup dammit. Where did you grow up. I grew up in torrance born in. But i grew up in torn scout here in los angeles because i think you have a new york energy. That's what i said before. I think i did your show. I don't know you're very direct. You seem to cut the shit. You're not giving a lot of like how like you don't have that so i'm very surprised to hear that you are born and raised here. Yes born in taiwan race. Here definitely i mean you know i. I've i've listened to a couple of episodes of yours and some other comedians. Who spent time in new york. And you know there are some generalities true east coast new york versus l a you know. I thought each you told me if this is true. Another friend of mine told me that a lot of taiwanese people tended to go to the east coast and a lot of like mainland. Chinese people tend to go to the west coast. I don't know if that's true. Maybe i have it backwards. Because i was wondering then if that if that was new york energy oh tie if taiwan if taiwan is new york energy well this came up in the context of chinese food and we were saying how he couldn't find the stuff we liked out here and then you had a schooling us on why certain things were more popular new york versus ally. That one hundred percents. Obviously you haven't talked to me about where to get your episode. I will help. Yes if there is something cultural. And unless i have it backwards. Ignored retracting depends. I think it depends. I think it depends. I think new york energy can be direct and whatnot. Taiwanese folks as a stereotype. Tend to not be as direct. They tend to be a little more. You know so you might have flipped you know. Maybe the person assumed. Oh taiwanese people are more likely to see on the west coast versus east coast. We definitely have a stronger presence here. you know. i'm all. I'm saying is i will be a pushy on the and that energy chinese gm say whether or not that's new york. But i did go to college on the east coast and you know a lot of my friends were new york exactly. That's where you broke as you say. So let's think about that. Let's talk about that. They broke me broke them. I spent a summer in new york after college really loved it and honestly i would be new york if it wasn't for my family being in la. Like that's really why i was here so it doesn't surprise me. I take it as a compliment. You know think you know so. Check new york energy. I walked summarized. What broke you at twenty one. Oh yeah oh just. I'm you know i like. I'm a horn dog. You were having been hold it in anymore and you know. I went to therapy for the first time in college. All that helps. Wow yes absolutely. Was that something you had to do. You had to leave home to do. So i think so i think just grow up just realize. Oh that's a thing. Because i didn't have friends in high school who went to therapy. I didn't know what that was really and then in college. I was like i'm upset. Why am i anxious. Why having having flashbacks traumatic outed experiences. Let me go to student health services and and we worked it out. You know had a lot of anger tumor dad to my brothers. It's it's a lot of you know man. This is how were mean and bad is. This is how feminists are born heavy. Is that heavy couples therapy and open up. You know this is. This is the reality. And therefore emma stand up comedian absolutely exactly parental issues. That create a void inside. That is definitely there was. This is funny. How like a long time ago. I saw pan. Oswald this is a paraphrase of a quota. But he's like no. It's just a skill. There's no reason why certain people go into comedy. Mike mike. yeah that's right. Yeah you got it. And then afterwards as i'm in this business and i'm meet more and more people i'm like no you don't do this. If you don't have a void inside sub what you have to have some void. It doesn't have to be the same void all have different exactly but it has. There has to be a void. There has to be a prerequisite void right. I want the praise of strangers. Well last night. I did my first live. Show back in the world service guy. Thank you. I was so nervous but then i'm thinking is fine but after this guy comes up to me he goes. What you did was really brave there. What made you so brave. That was how it with. And i guess and i was like okay. My lena dunham exposing her body brave. You know they always wanted to say brave but i i was what i was.

"To couples therapy. My name is andy. And i'm naomi real life couple real life couple of comedians on couples therapy. We answer a couple of different questions from a couple different listeners. Naomi we're now into the hot depths of august. How are you doing in the sweaty sweaty weather something. Hey we learned. I dunno if you don't wanna talk about it but you've been having sweaty problems lately. We've found that it's your antidepressants. Well we think so. Basically we use the internet. Because y'all i just like church is like i'm under the sun for thirty seconds and my face begins to drip like i'm in a silent film. It's almost chaplinesque. Yeah flop sweat. That is reminiscent of the old days of film. It's very blue. Lagoon is a waterfall very waterfall. I'm asking. I'm looking like shape water. I'm done with the shape of water. That is and i was like this. Don't make no sense. That has happened in so fast. And then andy was like you know what i read. Some of this says antidepressants can cause it. What are the ones you're taking a. Aj peg on tumbler shape. We'll send that you read an article people talking about how like they're anti psychotics are making it difficult for their buys to regulate their temperature and then they're like and so they did some research and they found a list of like all these like antidepressants and antipsychotic anti anything. Anti anything anti anything. Hey anti records record label so they and they found that if you take these things makes it difficult for your body to regulate your temperature. I'm like i wonder if that's what's going on could be hunting because you know i'm on them pills do the psa. For everyone out there. Just check into. I don't know what i'm supposed to do as a result. But i guess there's a reason but still i'm so you know is hat literally three hundred and fifty two days out the year which means i'm actually out in the street sweating what my suggestion is what you get one of those old timey screw cap things you put ice in it and you put on your hat like you see him in cartoon thermometer my mouth ice on my head of thermometer. My mouth which i'm convinced would affect the temperature around. It's very like old school. Newsy cap type. Yeah hammy it's cooling but make fashion if feels like it could be very history to like the idea of wearing. Who like being like well. I don't wanna use my ac. And i'm trying to conserve. So i just put a bag of ice on me. Oh my god you wearing that me with my parasol that we are going to be high fashion hot couture in this house not hot but how could you. yes guitar. Cool could tour. Maybe someone's bought cool tour. Hey before we ended the episode naming. We got some foul ups like. I mentioned last episode. I love it. Pops got some commentary from other listeners. New so this first one comes from another one from jason butler episode. Wow this is really got people talking. If you remember last week we we played an expert from one of the callers. So do you remember the advice question. Where the writer sheridan. She's a lesbian. Her best friend is a straight guy she staying with him in one day out of nowhere. He started like confronted her. Yes i remember this. I remember it's like something's going on with him. He's like he's like accusing her leave. Well she didn't know what to do. She was like she had she was fixing a like camper van thing and she's going to be there for a couple of years. I think in utah. And then all right. Hi naomi. andy. Getting caught up on the podcasts and just heard my advice question. Read on jason butler harness episode. I was dealing with a tricky situation with a friend of mine after eight confusing confrontation. I wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for your time and advice the situation really had me feeling lost and honestly pretty down on myself but hearing your reactions came at a perfect time. I haven't fact left salt lake city. And maybe i don't have a lot of people to talk things through with these days and hearing your support of my decision to leave. Gave me a boost of confidence that it was probably the right move. I've now been on the road for about two months. Just me and my dog not sure yet where we'll ultimately land but that's part of the adventure anyway. I just wanted to send a note of appreciation for you. Both and of course. Thank you for the podcast. I'm loving this nomad land. Nomad land a gallon her dog and the open road. There was no dog. no madelynn was there which is why this is even better and we also have someone else wrote in with their own commentary on that question. oh k. and shiro rights. Hey was a exclamation naomi when you get those the ups screaming my apologies. Hey i have some input from the first advice segment of episode. I'm also a lesbian. With many hetero male friends it's imperative to constantly manage boundaries and expectations in these relationships. Because you can get sticky. It's something that i'm hyper aware of. How to bisexual guy friend for over ten years who i knew had feelings for me in middle and high school display weird outbursts of accusations me stealing from him for x. For example and just general maniac energy toward me. i. I distanced myself from the relationship. It came time to tell him happy birthday and he confessed his love for me once more. This is two months. After he met the girl. I was dating and was acting weird during the encounter. He said that he wants me to be open to being with him in the future Because that's what he wants but infuriatingly insistent about that. We have not spoken to each other since that day. Because i realized this would always be a thing for him in our friendship. Another common theme of lesbian women and hetero male relationships as codependency related issues. I have another male friend who would fight with me a lot. But then i realized he has mommy issues and viewed me as a mother figure. I'm very mature and can be assertive. So i get why. But in that instance distance myself and reconfiguring my behavior so that he responded differently. Sometimes it's not an issue that is easy to detect. And i found it nearly impossible to speak with a less evolve. Non therapy seeking mail about codependent codependency issues so changing my own behavior just seemed like the easiest and most efficient way of saving and managing the relationship but sometimes relationship isn't worth saving sometimes when hetero guys have feelings for lesbian women. It doesn't dissipate because it's unfulfilled and they can't wrap their minds around that kind of rejection. Wow it's almost like being friends with heterosexual males is not good. It's almost like there's a toxicity. Our changer t-shirt my god. This is really fucked up. It's so funny. We were target the other day. And we i get a tennis ball for some physical therapy to roll along for my heel spurs so i was walking through the sporting good section. I was just explaining why. I'm in the sporting good section. I'd be like yeah. I was in the sports section and people were like that doesn't check out and i passed by. Footballs and there's almost like instinctual. Feeling to like pick up the football like hold it and feel it and like three. That's your instinct. Yeah just like maleness. America like kinda drill that into your neurons. Yeah pick up a football when you get a football when you get near it. It's almost like i was reading a cliff notes of how to be a bad one pickup football if you get near it to treat. Women like mommy manic outbursts. God is that mainstream hetero country. Oh what a good time all right before we get into talking about our guests though. We have one more this follow-up ish this is a reader commenting now. Do you remember the rhino connell and put them episode. Absolutely you remember the roller derby question. Where a woman was living in france with her boyfriend. A roller derby team and is having a what we what we might call a queer awakening. Yes yes yes. A spring awakening the music. I don't know. I didn't see it so that could be inaccurate. So someone wrote in about that about their own experiences with roller derby Do you wanna read that. I do because this would really may be happy so from this person. I know that i'm a few weeks late. But i'm just catching up. I want to let you know that joining roller derby in your thirties and having a queer sexual is a tale as oldest time to to teammates of mine divorce their husbands to marry each other. Yes did multiple teammates asymmetrical haircuts and break up with their boyfriends. Yes did i. A straight in quotes lady runaway. Date my teammate. For ten years maybe maybe.

"yang" Discussed on Asian Enough

"Bullshit. And that's just one of the you know like the very online ways you've found your audience you know while most of us. All of us were isolated. Yeah now that life is opening up again. are you ready for a return to quote unquote normalcy. Because i am not. Yeah i've been saying no to some of the live shows that have popped up already I think i'm going to start doing shows in august. I have a mini tour on the east coast happening. Just get my feet wet In october so i wanna be ready for that. But i still feel kind of weird about performing live i feel like i said i feel very fortunate that him vaccinated but yeah i feel like you know i really benefited from developing as a comedian through both live performance and also by making videos and by being online and doing social media work and so to me those parallel worlds run simultaneously. And so for me. It's like okay. Well i guess if live performance is no longer available to us you know. It was a matter of time before. I could figure out a way to stay in touch with people online So i'm just really happy that i was able to do that with comedy crossing but yeah no. I'm not quite ready yet to perform live. But even though i'm a little rusty we're going to have to figure it. I mean my version of that is i am. I can't believe i'm about to say this. But i am not sure. I'm ready to go back to karaoke motto. I said it. And i felt weird as it was leaving my mouth and i can't believe i'm saying that publicly to anybody is true. I don't know. I don't know i can't wrap my head around quite yet and you know i love karaoke myself to okay. I grew up in high school going to karaoke rooms. Private rooms on the weekends. Time in gardena. You know a karaoke room is a safe space for asians. Yeah right and for us to not have that confined cave like safe-space with good lighting and high air conditioning. It's it just feels weird. But i do wonder you know like how. How is the world gonna look differently to me when i allow myself to go back into it. Well there's hopefully the world will look different in that we will have much better. Public health safeguards so that we feel safe to go into confined spaces in public. I don't know we'll see. I'm supposed to be touring in a confined space. So good luck to me and my immune system right. I can't even imagine talking more than three people at once on a room full of people. Yeah i guess how you know how. How else have you been looking at things differently after this last year do you feel like the pandemic has changed you or is that one of those. The false expectations were people so we should have grown or changed or learn something during this time. Yeah i think we should be kinder more compassionate and more down to earth with each other. You know you were doing zoom meetings for work where you saw people's kitchens Dogs and random children ran through like anyone who could sort of pretend to be above you or condescend to you. They got humbled. Everyone got hubble unity. I mean there's less chance for artifice. When you're just talking through a video chat you know. I don't know. I feel like we should definitely embrace a continuation of loose pants. I definitely believe in a shorter workday. I feel like people when they were doing zoom work. They realize that you can't be staring at a monitor like eight hours a day. Maybe five max. But i also think with a lot of diversity and equity stuff that was happening prior to the pandemic. I really hope that we continue to not give a fuck and just demand our space. You're mean we need to stop self censoring stop asking for permission. Give ourselves the permission to pitch the stories. We wanna see make things we wanna make and to accept nothing less. Because i think if both the me too movement and other sort of movements that are trying to push for equity and inclusion what those movements have taught us is once we raise people's consciousness about what is no longer acceptable. There's no going back and we have to keep people accountable for that. So that's what i believe. I think especially asian americans. In particular there should be no regression. We should continue to say. Yeah you said you wanted to do better. Let's do better. Let's just vicious you better. Yeah i feel like it's so helpful probably that you have the foundation that you have in your past life as an organizer yes all of the activism that you sort of naturally gravitated towards anyway is now just coming out in even the things you say in casual conversation. It's evident in the work that you create. And i feel like it's it's interesting because i think about how we have to remind ourselves so often in the entertainment world that representation does not equal change. Reputation alone is not the answer. But there's something meaningful to meaningful representation when it's backed up by like an understanding of history and an understanding of how systems need to change. Yeah it systems means. Who are you paying. Are you putting up the budget. If it's a black indigenous production are you giving them less money than you would otherwise. Get into mean like. Are you asking for people to double the work. How are you supporting us. You know to me all of these issues. I've seen them before. When i used to do student activism in college around these things my year we had the most students of color ever in incoming freshman class for small liberal arts mostly white college and they freaked out the institution freaked out. They were afraid that a lot of us were going to do as well in school that we weren't ready or prepared but you let us in and now you need to also support us because you can't expect us to have the same essay writing ability as the kid who is a typical white kid. Who's the child of a harvard professor. You just can't expect that but you did see that. We have potential and that we have some level of academic achievement and ability. So there's a lot of sort of like cultural competency. There's a lot of shifting culture which is how you treat people the norms for what's acceptable or not acceptable in an environment. That people need to be more aware of you know and you have to change that. Like who's the crew that you're hiring. The practices for making decisions. Like all of those things need to be in question. Yeah so okay. You're you're now currently working on a tv show. Yes reading tv yeah. The show's gordy two chronicles. It sounds exciting. I really must you already. It's so cute. Twelve year old immigrant girl. Who moves to miami in the eighties. Yes i wanted yes yes an eighties period piece. The families from the dominican republic. They moved to eighties. Miami hedonistic eighties. Miami there's gonna be a lot of lovely eighties pop culture references and allusions to classic eighties movies and tv shows It's about this family searching for the american dream. But also i'm learning so much about dominican stuff and miami stuff like that's what's fun about it but you know there's a lot of heart. It's like a family comedy that hopefully everyone will like like modern family or blackish but dominican. i mean we've talked a little about your your comedy but being a staff writer on a sitcom is very different from being a standard comedian. Yeah i guess. How are you stretching yourself differently at this point in your career. Like what different creative muscles do you wanna flex down the line. I do love performing. Stand up comedy and writing it as well as working collaboratively on television and so i just wanted you both as much as possible. Like let's be honest. Mardi fricken living the dream. I just wanted to see more of it. Work with more interesting people. I want to sell some shows on a make it. who knows. maybe you know. I'm going to build a mini empire of of show making down with that. Who knows i love that. Mattie fort gimme the jenny yang pyre. Yes the the jenny yang higher. Good with words. You're good with words. Aren't you do that for production. Companies everybody out there the yang tire. I like that okay. So we are nearing the end of retirement. But or we get into our confessions segment. yes I do want to reclaim a little bit of asian american joyfulness and self love to things that i always feel like you put out into the world in this beautiful way. Oh thank you. I wanna ask both of you tracy jenny. What is bringing joy. These days one thing that has brought me joy in the last few weeks is of all things. A conversation about earwax conversation about earwax between jenny. Yang and your korean dad. Nick joe that is the last thing i ever ever expected to see whilst scrolling through my twitter fees and the instagram one night tweet into full on instagram. Live video in which i watched a device go into an ear ear. We'll see how clean my ears check this out. Okay we're gonna we're going in there. You ready yeah il ill on my guy. It's making me to feel tinguely doing. That's my eardrum clean. My ear is i'm so proud. What's this little girl. i i can't. The resolution is way too high. Like i'm stared down the ear. Oh my god. I don't want to look at but you know what hooked me is you and nick show talked about these little asian asian ear scoop thing. I don't even know what the name spoons ears. Whatever they're i'm sure somebody out there like trade market these that gave me such a flashback to my childhood when i would lay on my mother's lap and showed us these japanese like wouldn't ear scooby things and we called it me. Cookie is what we call we call. It also goes. Oh my god tracy yes. That's cute until you until you do started talking about ear wax in all of its glory. I did not know that that was such a common experience. I i no no. I had no idea. It's one of those things that is so intimate it's it's about hygiene and our bodies and it's such a common experience for a lot of east asians because apparently and i didn't know this earwax had different consistencies. It's gross i. If this is going to gross you lean into it. We've come this far. I know apparently we have genes as east asians that make us sweat less and probably not be oh and probably give us good skin but also that create more dry earwax right so it's more sort of dry and like flaky rather than apparently i did not know this other. People's earwax is not like that. It's more wet in gooky. So what they call peanut butter earwax. Now i know and so. I always never understood why. Like white people used cue tips on like you're just shoving in the flaky into your eardrum. Why would you do that but whatever to each their own. You know white people secrets but one hundred percent was just like one day like. Oh yeah this is a thing it's not know. And so nick chou who's Viral sensation on. Tick tock. your korean dad He's a friend of mine and he was like. Oh by the way. I bought a scope that goes into the ear. So you can do it yourself and see where the earwax is in cleared out. And that's the thing. So we did i g life. Listen this is my joy these days because of his last year of the pandemic because of how emotionally taxing the pandemic has been anti asian. Hate has been. I honestly have been off. Social media haven't been posting as much haven't been making content for social media's much. I've been loath to like promote as many things or do promotional things i'll get asked to do sponsorships and like you know what i mean like influence or type things but say yes to as many of those things because i'm just tired emotionally and so i will only post whatever feeds my soul and for that night. What fed my soul was talking to my twitter. Follow worse about your scoops because it is the thing we've never talked about. But everyone got their minds blown by the fact that we have a special gene and that we actually share this very intimate home experience of having our mothers or fathers caring for our ears. Okay so tracy what's the thing that has You know. I just read a book called sharkey lucky by megan nicole dong it was them sitting on my show for awhile. It's like i was trying to find stuff that right like asian american creators did. It's a sketchbook of arches like a cartoonist. So it's just a bunch of really weird like anthropomorphic art. There's like a shark trying to break it in hollywood it's colorful and vibrant and i just like that it's so weird. There's like animals with human hands but even little relevant things like a toad character and some other animal is like my last girlfriend was a frog. I'm super vivian. Culture oh my god. That's funny and stuff like that. So yeah thank you. thank you. Megan nicole deng for that. But i mean already shared my joy which is sharing about earwax. The same thing. No but i've also been really enjoying All the asian american authors have put up books during this last year. Honestly.

"Track of schedule. Remember schedules like literally unlike. Oh crap like. I'm usually not. That's much of a space cadet. I'm like you know student council president agenda keeper person you know and so for me to like brain fart. Something like oh crap it was. I supposed to do that. I think is just a result of like what happens when you're dealing with like a massive thing that we all went through like time didn't have much meaning for the past what eighteen months disappointing Going back to a little bit to your comedy. I wonder like do. You sometimes wish you can make comedy just for comedy like would your comedy be different if we lived and like a just society where we didn't have to address some of these issues. I mean i'm not sure. I mean you know it does take double work in order to figure out something to be funny but also care about what you're representing but you know i feel like if i had it my way. I would want all comedians. Think that way it's like oh what would the consequences of what you're saying you know. And if there is a negative consequence is that worth it and maybe sometimes you say yes like right before the pandemic. I think probably people knew that i was a subject matter expert on asian american stuff but i wanted to also have other people know that i'm obsessed with true crime or i'm obsessed with the wellness and self care industrial complex and so on march nineteenth. I was about to launch a monthly variety. Comedy show called. everything's fine with jenny. Yang competitive self-care comedy show where all i do is make fun of wellness trends sort of seventy percent thirty percent. Talk about how it's helped us. Yes none of us want to only be asked about like ray stuff asian stuff identity stuff but we do have to ask about one of your viral bits. Because it was so funny. Oh thanks what was it. It's the video you made after andrew yang op ed in the washington post suggesting that asian americans in the face of racism in violin simply quote show without a shadow of a doubt that we are americans who will do our part for our country. The corona virus has a lot of americans scared of asians so andrew yang says. We can't make them be less racist. We just have to be more american. Let's see if that works. Come on. I'm ready to be more american proud to be an american where at least i know i'm free. The rain no doubt. I love this land and you did this going out into the world which a was a brave act in itself at the time. And you're wearing red white and blue. You're holding a sign asking people to honk if they wouldn't hate crime you you say everyone not. Hunting is not a patriot. Will you not cry. I would you like a clorox. wipe. I'm giving them out just a service to the community. Because i'm american. You're doing all active of miniature civic service and it was funny for many reasons but one of the biggest reasons is fun because it made the point. And i now wonder do you think andrew yang sawyer video. The for sure you think. I wonder if the point was hammered. Home i hope so. I believe he saw my thing because he's friends with my friends of mine and we are one degree separated so i hope he saw it. I mean he responded and actually had to make another statement trying to clarify was like no you blend this in print for washington post abed get so someone vetted you wrote it or someone edited for you and you said yes to it. You signed it so you know andrew. Thank you for saying it's funny. Thank you for saying it makes a point. It was just a big role for me. I got so mad. You know. I remain very non commenting about andrew. Yang's candidacy up until that point. And then the the moment he decided to address asian americans to say guess what. My advice is to be more american than everyone else. In order to not receive anti-asian hate wishes so asinine bullshit and frankly dangerous and so it just made me so mad. I literally made that video like shoddy in like two hours of like a few state of anger and then like like straight up like making the sign all two hours everything. Everything shooting it editing. It for the next twelve hours and then i put it out i was just like i can't fucking can't you know because to me i feel like i have a small platform and i have an ability to try to make a point and if someone else make this point i would like to do it especially if i could do it in a form of comedy. That keeps people entertained while i make the point and so i hope that i highlight the absurdity of his suggestion also cathartic just to hear you say the words to people strangers like will you hate crime me because sometimes crosses through my head maybe not for me but sometimes like with my mom going out and i'm like oh like how dangerous is it for you right now around these other people. Yeah i i did that. Video i think in april or early may and so that was when it still felt really scary to be out on the streets. It was actually very quiet out on the streets. We still didn't quite know how transmissible everything was and i had already started to hear the drumbeat of anti asian racism. It wasn't until within the last few months that we got more of the graphic videos of people being beat up so this was before that and so for me already knew it was coming. I already experienced some of that hate within the first couple weeks of everything being locked down. You know i was out on the street the same street where i shot that video i was on the street corner. Maybe a week after the lockdown where i was trying to buy groceries and a white guy pulled up in a pickup truck and slow down in front of me even though he had a green light and looked at me. Menacingly in flipped me off with both middle fingers and then drove off. And you know i knew i knew what that meant you know. I've experienced racism before as a kid and growing up. And i know when i'm being singled out. Even if he didn't call me a anti-asia name. I knew what it was about. He just stopped to flip me off a week. After everything got lockdown people calling it the flu or the china virus. So you know it was also driven by that you know for for for andrew young to say that it incense to me especially knowing that you went out and filmed it in the same place where that incident had happened to you. I didn't know that you know what i didn't know would happen. Is that while. I was shooting that video i would get so many hogs and then i actually had this middle aged white lady and her teenage son flag me down and one of the corners and talk to me through their window car window and say i just want to tell you we stand by you. We think it's so upsetting. What's happening to you. We don't think it's fair which she started crying and she made me cry. You know we support you. I don't think it's like oh my god. Why are you doing this lady in made me cry. Because she saw me hold up the sign. How many times that happened when you're doing a comedy but well you know if you're out doing a man on the street then yeah you're gonna get random people kind of interacting with you so my soul reminder that there are nice people out there yeah it was very. It was very nice for her to stop. She's like. I went around the block three times.

"Welcome back to asian. Here's our conversation with comedian jenny. Yang one quality. I really appreciate About eugenie is your ability to bring joy into any room that you put that on my epitaph. Oh my god give me a little hammer and a in a chessel. That's like the greatest compliment because there's just too many bummer things in life. It's like i get to make people laugh and be a comedian. So that's pretty cool. So thank you for being here. I'm so glad to be here. Let's find the joy together. Yes twenty twenty. One is a continuation of twenty twenty. We haven't decided yet. We're more than halfway over now. I think we need to make some calls on that. I don't know yet. Well i mean to get us started right. You mentioned being a comedian and my number one question is how do you comedy. How do you cut comedy on purpose without the embarrassment or shame or most of all how comedy and make a point. Oh god that's like so much. I feel like that's a whole series of podcasts How do you comedy and make a point. How do comedy period without shame. Well i think you have to be shameless. I mean that's number one. I feel like there is a very special type person who decides that every day they wanna go on stage and you know make people like them and that is torture for most people public speaking but i feel like if you're a comedian you have to have a kind of a sick satisfaction in like the challenge of getting people to go your way every time you are in front of them. It's compulsive probably obsessive possibly requires therapy. But for sure i feel like there's a sort of a architecture of your personality that needs to feel like the reward over powers the risks. Okay so you did stand up for. I think over a decade. Oh my god. I know it feels. I still feel new. But yes i technically. I'm about ten or eleven years in now. Okay so when did you first realize like first time in your entire life. When did you first realize that you could make people laugh. Oh gosh. I mean i probably. I realized that when i was Voted most obnoxious in my high school band. But is that a was that a compliment. Know who's probably not positive but i'm like whatever i guess it's a superlative from high school no i i go back to like how i figured out. I was funny. I always liked being a little mischievous even though i got good grades you know what i mean like. Did you guys ever have like grades where it was like academics a through f but like a citizenship grade. You remember that. Oh it's like a participation grade was like e s and. I don't remember but yeah e. for excellent estra satisfactory i frequently got as and frequently got s.'s for satisfactory because it was always like satisfactory. Johnny talks too much in class. So i was always like making little cracks but doing well in school so i feel like i got away with it. You know when you look back. I'm like oh you know. I really use humor to my advantage in high school. When i was like a big student government nerd and i ran for student council and it was like a mandatory meeting for all of the entire school to watch us to speeches. And if you were funny you got voted voted in so that was like probably the first time i consciously understood the power of being funny. Did it were. Oh yeah it was in student council for all four years and if came student body president girl. I know how to make an agenda. Okay she knows how to facilitate a meeting. I was a nerd than a jock. Wait what kind of jock were you. I played soccer as a captain's excuse me and captain of the softball team. Oh my god. You weren't a jock. I played volleyball too. So it was kind of a jock. I know it was a whole thing. This is the thing. If people don't understand. Like i grew up in southern california. And i grew up in torrance. Bordering like gardena and carson. I grew up around a lot of asian americans a lot of latin next folks pacific islanders black folks and like i didn't understand the stereotypes of asians until i went to college and it was like a majority white place because i grew up around asia. Americans it was like sweet valley high but asian and with like boba like so people. Don't understand that. Like i could you all of it. I could like be in student council. I could be in bed. I could get good grades. And i could still play sports like the people i looked up to who are cool and popular all also kind of look like me. You know i know. I know it's true. We don't really hear that story that often. No it's like better luck tomorrow. And always be my maybe ca lashed and that was like how i grew up near. I'm saying I grew up a long beach. And i spent a lot of time in torn. Because that's where right where all the japanese americans are. So i definitely like very much relate to that experience writing. I feel like when you especially when you cover entertainment in the industry. There's so many people from outside of southern california who come here to do their work and sometimes when they talk amongst each other they're like and again no one's from la. And i'm like no bitch. I am so are all the people grew up with so are other people that i know who are in comedy. I always love finding out that they grew up in la. You know. i'm actually so. I have to put an addendum on this like nostalgia what i was in in high school. I am now elapsed jock but tracy is a is an actual jock and this is my moments my that. I'm seizing to tell the world. That tracy is like a champion dodgeball player. Oh which. I've recently tracy. That's so hot just aggressive ball throwing yes yep throwing catching colored. So there's boys girls can we..
