    RACE TIMER!!! (w/ Michael Cruz Kayne)

    RACE TIMER!!! (w/ Michael Cruz Kayne)

    This one is a little longer than usual but we had such an amazing conversation with comedian/writer Michael Cruz Kayne!




    Fumi whipped out the race timer this week and goes off on a hip bar that wronged him in Bed Stuy. After listening to Fumi rant, Mic reveals that bar is actually his favorite bar. Then the boys get into a deep discussion about how every Asian entertainer needs to “self-anoint” themselves because people aren’t really keeping tabs on their achievements.

Cooking and laughing

I’m a mum of 2 ( non Asian , also kids are not Asian ) You guys are funny ! Thanks for the making the mundane tasks of cooking dinner enjoyable .

I felt what subtle racism

Couple years ago at the mall this kid probably around 17 asked me where am I from, in a condescending way. I knew exactly what he was trying to do but didn’t want to be rude so I answered Melbourne and walked away.

Pretty Asian for Not Asians

Being able to binge listen to this over the past week has been amazing. Mic and Fumi are both so personable and they have some amazing guests on the podcasts. They can go from being somewhat funny comedians to discussing some woke as stuff from one episode to another.

Highly recommend giving them a listen- I didn’t think I would be able to stand listening to the boys do the same intro and outro so many times in a row but here I am.
