    • Society & Culture

(S3, EP 3) Cathy Park Hong joined me for this week's episode of the podcast.  Cathy is a Korean-American poet, writer, and professor at Rutgers-Newark University.  Cathy recently released her critically acclaimed essay book, Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning this past Spring.  In discussing her latest book, Cathy shared her process in writing Minor Feelings, and on the complicated layers of the Asian-American identity in her essays.  Her book segued into the current anti-Asian racism during Covid-19 which she also wrote an op-ed for the NY-Times called "The Slur I Never Expected To Hear in 2020".  She talked about the challenging issues confronting anti-Black racism in the API community in the wake of George Floyd's murder, and reflected on the differences between her experience with the LA Riot and the current protest movements.  There is so much more in our discussion that you won't want to miss!
