They Call Us Bruce - Episode 19: They Call Us Philip Ng

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 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, we welcome actor Philip Ng, who stars as Bruce Lee in Birth of the Dragon. He talks about the premature controversy around the film -- it's not a biopic -- his approach to playing an icon, and some of the big differences between Hong Kong and Hollywood action.

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!
