Episode Eight – Crazy Rich Asians Ft. Asian_Soph Part 2

Happy Labor Day to everyone who celebrates! This week we’ve got part two of my conversation with Soph from the Instagram pages Asian_Soph and MixedPresent. Don’t worry, this won’t be the last time you hear from her!

We’re picking up where we left off talking about some of the controversy surrounding the film, the casting of Henry Golding in particular. Listen in for some talk about Singaporean culture, how Asian men should be appreciated more, and our hopes for future Mixed and Asian representation in Hollywood. Be sure to listen to the very end for a fun little outtake from our episode!
