I saw the new Wonder Woman movie with Gal Gadot and have some opinions about it. I also talk about the disappointment that is Baywatch, how I'm done with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and how I'm the minority when it comes to being a fan of the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Also, I read some of the love I'm getting on iTunes — because a little positive reinforcement never hurt no one.
Joyce Wong, director/writer of the coming-of-age dramedy Wexford Plaza, stopped by the podcast earlier this month at the L.A. Asian Pacific Film Festival to talk about her debut feature film. We also talk about the emasculation of the Asian male, Mary Kay products, female body image, the magic of strip malls and, of course, being woke.

In this week's super-sized episode, I welcome the lovely Sara Amini, Emily Chang, and Meghan Malloy from the new digital series Misery Loves Company and things get poppin' as we talk about their dope series about two women of color trying to live a #blessed life in post-election L.A. — but that's only the beginning. We also talk about the new season of Master of None, 13 Reasons Why, mediums, tarot card readings, and musicals...LOTS OF MUSICAL talk. After talking about the racist history of Miss Saigon, we shamelessly break into song and it is simply magical. Also, I debut a NEW game that may become a permanent segment on the show!

Filmmaker Leon Cheo and actor Josh Crowe stop by the podcast to chat about People Like Us, the first LGBTQ web series in Singapore. We talk about the true stories that influenced the series, the obnoxious struggle of dating, the bigger message behind the show, and Josh's seasoned career at Universal Studios Singapore (which I didn't know existed!)

My conversation with Marie Jamora, Jason McLagan, and Courtney Bandeko from the short Flip the Record continues and we get into some pretty deep shit about Filipino identity...but I also introduce them to the term, "titty balls." So there's that.
Two episodes in one week? That's crazy! What's even crazier is that this is another two-parter. There is just too much awesome to contain in one episode! Filmmakers Marie Jamora and Jason McLagan and actress Courtney Bandeko come to the Off White dining room/recording studio/donut eating facility to talk about their short Flip the Record as well as the Fast and the Furious franchise, holding your pee while watching movies, UTIs, film-going etiquette in the Philippines, and, of course, the magical obnoxiousness of Coachella.
Sujata Day and Tristen J. Winger (a.k.a. Sarah and Thug Yoda from Insecure) continue our conversation from last week. The two talk about their time on Issa Rae's Awkward Black Girl, the web series which the Golden Globe-nominated HBO comedy was based as well as their upcoming projects including Sujata's short film Cowboy and Indian as well as Tristen's "kept under wraps" web series.
In this two-parter, Sujata Day and Tristen J. Winger (a.k.a. Sarah and Thug Yoda from Insecure) stop by my brand new home studio (a.k.a. dining room with microphones) to talk about their show, donuts, Bat Day (whatever the hell that is), the ridiculous price of cable, and some unintentional/intentional racist moments in their lives inside and outside of the entertainment industry. But that's only the half of it! Come back next week for Part 2 when they talk about their time on Issa Rae's Awkward Black Girl, the web series which the Golden Globe-nominated HBO comedy was based as well as their upcoming projects including Sujata's short film Cowboy and Indian as well as Tristen's "kept under wraps" web series. It's another grand ol' time on Off White!
We're going to Canada! Well, at least in this episode we are. Off White has a rousing conversation about mature subject matter including shitting, farting, dating, and bad gift-giving with the lovely Katie Uhlmann and Trish Rainone as well as returning guest Bobby Del Rio. They are the creators and stars of the hilarious web series My Roommate's an Escort — make sure you check it out. You can watch it before or after listening to this episode. It doesn't matter when just as long as you watch it.
It's been a minute since I have posted something so I decided to post this short ep to profess my ride or die love for Danity Kane and then go off on the bullshit that is Ghost in the Shell and that goddam Kendall Jenner Pepsi commercial.
During my crazed schedule at SXSW, I made sure to set some time aside to talk to the cast and creator of the upcoming gal pal comedy I Love Bekka and Lucy, the first digital series to be included in the episodic programming at the festival — and that's a huge deal. On the episode, I have a grand ol' time talking with writer-director Rachael Holder and actors Jessica Parker Kennedy, Tanisha Long, Chris Smith, and Alexis Denisof about the hysterical series, diversity & inclusion (obvi), and most importantly, The Great British Baking Show.
It's been 24 hours since the chaos that was the Oscars and we have all survived. Erin Lim, host of the Bitch Talk Podcast and Jeff Hunt, co-host of the Muni Diaries join me in a rousing discussion of all the Moonlight madness and La La Land ba-ba-backlash. Plus, we throw massive shade at Casey Affleck and manage to spend a good amount of time talking about more important things like the '80s made-for-TV movie Kate's Secret starring the legendary Meredith Baxter-Birney.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Sure, I'm over a month late, but better late than never, right? In this solo episode I talk about my Sundance journey as well as my opinions about this year's Oscar race.
