Ep 35 - Brotopia and Russian Doll

Emily Chang’s Brotopia (https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/547571/brotopia-by-emily-chang/) exposes the toxic monoculture of masculinity in the Silicon Valley. For Lin, it solidifies the conviction that journalists make compelling arguments in good stories backed up by a wealth of examples, so she recommends the book not just as an example of the perniciousness of promoting sameness, but for its energetic style. Many good reviews have persuaded Margrit to go back to watching Russian Doll on Netflix (https://www.netflix.com/ca/title/80211627), and they’re here to urge more people to enjoy its hopeful message that resilience comes not from individual struggle, but from finding your community of people who are not the same as you.

Ep 34 - A Look Back and A Look Forward

We take stock and look forward in this New Year’s episode. Lin talks about the lasting mark Tanya Talaga’s Seven Fallen Feathers (Episode 7: https://www.podbean.com/eu/pb-3zipj-a30adc) left on her consciousness as a settler in Canada. It fuels Lin’s resolve to attempt a zero-waste lifestyle in the year to come. Margrit remembers Tales of City (Episode 20: https://www.podbean.com/eu/pb-7dnnq-b5490f) fondly and rejoices in being immersed in young-adult literature for the care and empathy it shows its characters. Seeing some of that empathy working in the world and learning how to do nothing guilt-free are some of the things Margrit looks forward to.

Ep 33 - Dora and the Lost City of Gold and Cub

Lin appreciated the cultural respect that went into centering a Latina character and story in the movie Dora and the Lost City of Gold (https://www.paramountmovies.com/movies/dora-and-the-lost-city-of-gold). The film uses a fictional myth instead of appropriating existing ones, while the title-character actor drew on relatives for language coaching, and the result is a highly enjoyable adventure film. Hi-lo is a publishing category for stories that present high-interest themes to struggling readers. Margrit recommends Paul Coccia’s Cub(https://www.orcabook.com/Cub-P4021.aspx) for its fast-paced plot that sacrifices neither emotional depth nor character development in satisfying the low readability requirement of the category.

Ep 32 - Love Boat: Taiwan and Lucifer

Love Boat: Taiwan (https://www.loveboat-taiwan.com/about) is a documentary showcasing the experience of diasporic Chinese and Taiwanese youth who took part in one of the longest-running summer programs in the world. Lin recounts her own experiences and juxtaposes them with the documentary interviewees’ while also providing a historical & political background for context. What are the implications of retelling the same stories over and over? Grounded in the Netflix show Lucifer(https://www.netflix.com/title/80057918), we examine this questions from a cultural and economic perspective.

Ep 31 - Queer Eye in Japan and The Good Place

Queer Eye in Japan (https://www.netflix.com/ca/title/81075744) straddles a fine line between imposing an eminently Western view onto relationships and approaching their makeover subjects with compassion and a genuine desire to resolve their problems. The Good Place (https://www.netflix.com/ca/title/80113701) is on the surface a feel-good comedy, but it has interesting things to say about refashioning the Western storytelling structure based on conflict.

Ep 30 - Rice Asian Comedy Showcase and Daria

Lin has enjoyed the Rice comedy show (https://www.vongshow.com), a monthly event ( https://www.facebook.com/events/545385056239991/) that showcases Asian stand-up comedians. With particular panache, the comedians present relatable aspects of the Asian immigrant experience in a hilarious way that made Lin vow she’ll be a regular from now on. In the meantime, Margrit is re-living their youth by watching Daria on Crave (https://www.crave.ca/en/tv-shows/daria). Pre-immigration Margrit learned from the show’s satire of stereotypical middle-class white American high-school experience. Instead of centering the usual popular-girl-with-an-athletic-boyfriend stereotype, Daria pokes fun at it by showcasing a proudly nerdy girl who bucks the pressures of conforming to the demands of high-school popularity.

Steven Rowley’s best-selling Lily and the Octopus(https://www.stevenrowley.com/lily-and-the-octopus)centres on the relationship between a single man and his elderly dachshund, inviting us to ponder the meaning of family, love, and connection.
