They Call Us Bruce - Episode 96: They Call Us Alice Wu

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. (Almost) 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.

On this episode, we welcome Alice Wu, writer/director of the new Netflix movie The Half of It. We discuss the long-awaited follow-up to her beloved debut feature Saving Face (and why it took 15 years), how her coming-of-age film speaks to Trump's America, and the $1000 check that scared her out of writer's block.

Our theme music is by Kero One.

This podcast is produced and edited by Nick Song.
