They Call Us Bruce - Episode 52: They Call Us Vietgone

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.

On this episode, we welcome playwright Qui Nguyen, who talks about the small town video store pop culture that defined his Arkansas youth and the true life origins of his acclaimed play Vietgone. We also attempt to make him spill the beans about the super secret material he's been working on for Marvel Studios.

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!
