Jeff Yang and Phil Yu present an unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asian America.
What's up, podcast listeners? We've got another episode of our podcast They Call Us Bruce. (Almost) each week, my good friend, writer/columnist Jeff Yang and I host an unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asian America, with a strong focus on media, entertainment and popular culture.
On this episode, we welcome Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Renee Tajima-Pena, producer of the epic new PBS documentary series Asian Americans. She talks about finding the stories that don't make it into textbooks, how history repeats itself, and the challenges of condensing 150 years of history into a five-hour public television series.
