Hello, podcast listeners! We are back with another edition of the Sound and Fury podcast, in which I sit down with cool people and have an angry chat. Episode 18 features actor Randall Park, our good friend who you may recognize from a bunch of movie and TV projects over the years, including Veep, Supah Ninjas and The Interview. Next, he stars in the new sitcom Fresh Off The Boat, which premieres February 4 on ABC.
