16: Lucky Lee's, Congee Karen, and Other White Chefs Inventing "Superior" Asian Food feat. Esther Tseng (LA Times, Eater, Bon Appétit‪)‬ Politically Asian! Podcast

    • Comedy

This week we’re talking with Esther Tseng (@estarla, LA Times, Eater, Bon Appétit, Time Out) , a food journalist who writes about food and culture and food justice. We talk with Esther about food access and income inequality, outrage against white chefs inventing “superior” Asian food (e.g. Lucky Lee’s, Congee Karen), and how to move from outrage to action when seeing these pieces designed to make us mad. Give us a listen to hear what we think the next food to be Columbused is and leave a review!

WHAT'S POLITICALLY ASIAN PODCAST?

Two Asians talking about politics and the Asian American community to get more Asians talking about politics! Join comedians Aaron Yin (he/him) and Gerrie Lim (they/them) for 45 minutes-ish each week as they discuss current topics and events related to Asian Americans through the lenses of history, class, and advocacy. Think John Oliver's show, but there's two of us, and we're Asian.
