    Ep. 358: Limb Lengthening and Ass Implants

    With a campfire blazing out in the Catskills, the EFPA crew of Teen, Chris, Adam, and Jong go on a freewheeling conversation starting with an article detailing a young man's dangerous and expensive mission to become 3 inches taller. From there, they discuss Brazilian butt lifts, Biden's dangerous warmongering, the importance of dentists, the double-slit experiment in quantum physics, and the general lack of guidance and over-abundance of short-term thinking in today's society.

Really In-Depth Discussions about Asian America

Are you tired of the overwrought and trite views brought to you by Boba Liberals and Blue Check Twitter Asians?

Then you should listen to this podcast. Going through the catalogue, there are so many really fresh takes on the really unique experience of being Asian American.

Really like the podcast

Anyone know how I can listen to the full version of the preview episodes?

Love it

I really enjoy this podcast because we as Asian Americans don’t often address a lot racism issues that we face. This podcast really dives into a lot issues we often just pushes down and ignore even though it affects us in a much deeper way than we realize. Listening to this podcast not only make me have this ah ha moment like finally I am able to put words to those underlying feelings I have been feeling inside but also give me different perspectives on the issues we face as Asian currently. I highly recommend!
