    73 | Founder of The Slants: Simon Tam

    73 | Founder of The Slants: Simon Tam

    Simon Tam is the founder and bassist of The Slants, the world’s first and only all Asian American rock band. He’s also an author, activist, and self-proclaimed troublemaker, setting a world record by appearing on the TEDx stage 13 times.

    Asians are one of the most bullied demographics in America. When Simon Tam was growing up in San Diego, he faced the brunt of that. Bullies would make fun of him for the shape of his eyes.

    Well, when Simon grew up, he reclaimed that slur. Not only did he name his band The Slants, they won a historical Supreme court case which gave him the right to trademark his band’s name.

    Lucia speaks to Simon about his Asian American upbringing and how that prompted him to start an Asian American band named The Slants.

Dr. Wen also speaks about her journey from being a practicing physician to being a public health advocate, standing up against xenophobia, and how we can all get on the same page when it comes to public health safety.

    Dr. Leana Wen is an emergency physician, public health leader, and a passionate advocate for patient centered health care reform.⁠ You may have seen her popular TED Talk called “What your doctor won’t disclose” or on CNN as a medical analyst speaking about COVID-19.⁠

    70 | New York Assembly Member Yuh-Line Niou (with Model Majority Pod)

    When we talk about representation, we usually think about representation in the media and in the corporate office. However, there is a place where we rarely see Asian Americans, and that is in the government. When was the last time you saw an Asian governor, or an Asian mayor? Today’s guest Yuh-Line Niou talks about the importance of having representation in the local state government. She shares her journey to becoming an elected Assembly Member of District 65 of Manhattan, an area that includes Chinatown, and what it means for our community.

    68 | Modern Minorities: Sharon Lee Thony and Raman Sehgal

    Meet Sharon Lee Thony and Raman Sehgal, the hosts of Modern Minorities Podcast. Their podcast focuses on conversations with fellow modern minorities to uncover how our different cultural backgrounds shape how we uniquely experienced the world. Sharon and Roman have unique perspectives of what it means to be a modern minority because they're not only minorities themselves. But they've also married outside of their own race and have multiracial children. So in this conversation, Sharon and Roman, open up about their upbringing and speak about how it has shaped the way they see the world.
