Informative and Exciting!

Thank the maker that this show exists! I've been exploring new geeky/nerdy podcasts from different POVs, and this one came up. And I was not disappointed. Melissa, Rachel, and Alex are fantastic hosts, and their exploration of Asian American representation in film is critical. More importantly, it's clear that they just love what films can do, whether those films are perfect or not. And it's fantastic.

Do yourself a favor. Give it a shot. You'll learn something.
