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!)
Follow Josh and Leon on Twitter and make sure you watch People Like Us on YouTube and follow the show on Facebook.

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.
