They Call Us Bruce - Episode 6: They Call Us Asian American Cinema

Jeff Yang and Phil Yu present an unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asian America.

What's up, podcast listeners? We've got another episode of our recently launched podcast They Call Us Bruce. Each week, my good friend, writer/columnist Jeff Yang and I host an unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asian America, with a strong focus on media, entertainment and popular culture.

This week, on the eve of the 33rd Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, we discuss the state of independent Asian American cinema, the significance of films like Better Luck Tomorrow, and why it's still so hard for Asian American films to break through.

Our theme music is by Kero One. They Call Us Bruce is a member of the Potluck Podcast Collective. Be sure to subscribe to They Call Us Bruce on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play or however else you consume your podcasts. Rate us, tweet at us and recommend us to your friends. Thank you for listening!
