First Gen Burden #StayHome Edition w/Rich Tu
Crossposted from the hit podcast First Generation Burden, created and hosted by Rich Tu. We recorded this episode when New York City was first ordered to shelter-in-place back in late March. We talk about anti-Asian sentiments across the country, the perception of content post-COVID-19, and the Myth of Assimilation.

So...it's been a while, and 2020 didn't exactly go as we all hoped it would.

Apathy Is Not Compatible With Love: Simon Tam (of the Slants)
In the season finale, Sandie is joined by notorious "troublemaker," Simon Tam, the frontman of The Slants. Over the span of almost a decade, the band fought to keep their name with the U.S. Trademark Office and finally won a historic freedom of speech case with the Supreme Court in 2017. Simon not only discusses this case, but also what it was like to grow up in Southern California, bullying, grief, and his newly released memoir, Slanted.
