    BLACKPINK's 'Risque' Music Video

    BLACKPINK's 'Risque' Music Video

    Hello Juicy Lemoners! Welcome to this week's episode!


    SEGMENT 1: BLACKPINK Nursing a Controversy
    - BLACKPINK's latest music video LoveSick has attracted some controversy this week after the Korean Nurse Union demanded a scene of Jennie wearing a nurse uniform was deemed 'sexualising' the profession.
    - Many Non-Korean fans don't understand how the outfit or scene was offensive but is it because we don't understand the culture and history of nurses in Korea?


    SEGMENT 2: Coming Out Day
    - We look back at how far we've come with the 'Coming Out' process and how more work is needed to normalise sexuality.
    SEGMENT 3: Recommendations
    - Phil recommends Emily in Paris and Tom recommends you check out Anjelah Johnson's stand up Not Fancy on Netflix.

    One Year Later: Part 2

    One Year Later: Part 2

    Hello Juicy Lemoners!


    We're taking a bit of a break this week so we're revisiting some of our favourite moments in the past year! Can you believe it's been almost a year since LEMON was launched?!


    Fighting anti-Asian racism in Australia


    Rising anti-China sentiments in the early days of COVID-19 led to an increased number of racist attacks towards Asian-Australians. In this segment, we discuss and share our experiences of the casual racism we faced but also talk about how many Asian-Australians actually don't know where the line is drawn for 'casual racism' because it's something that we've all grown up with and dealt with on a daily basis. 


    Why do Asian people Anglicised our names?


    In this segment, we explore why our parents decided to give us English names and why so many international students coming to Australia are encouraged by their teachers to adopt and Anglicise their names. 


    The Asian Black Problem


    Black Lives Matters has been one of the biggest movements of our generation but for the Asian community, it has always been viewed as a white vs black person problem. In this episode, we discuss why Asian pop culture and societies in Asia need to do better to further the discussion around colourism and BLM.

Fun and Real, Great podcast

Lemon is my absolute favorite podcast. Tom and Phillip do such an amazing job at having serious and candid conversations, while being so entertaining at the same time. There's a lot that I've learned from listening.
