Episode 26: The Tao of Dao

Look at all these United Airlines seats that I’ll never sit in.

 

Hello Race Invaders, thanks for dropping by for Episode 26, which I cleverly named The Tao of Dao, in which of course we talk about the brutal conflation between corporate policy and state violence. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know what happened, but we’re talking about it anyway.

In our second segment, Alok brings to attention our former Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy and how he was “made redundant” by our current administration. Unfair, and of questionable reasoning from the Administrative Branch of our government, I know it’s a shock that we both think so.

Thanks to always to our sound engineer, Steve “Sonos” Jacoby, and if you liked this episode please rate and review us on iTunes, or Stitcher or what ever service you use to listen. Either that or recommend a friend. As always you can kick in a few bucks on our Patreon. Thanks again!

Episode 25: The Iron Fist Episode

Hey Race Invaders, this week we team up with our friends over at All Comics Considered to trash talk, er, review Iron Fist. What does this show mean to comic book fans? What does it mean for Asian-Americans in Western Media (hint: nothing good).

Episode 24: The Echo Chamber

lane37-1

 

Hey hey, what’s new Race Invaders? So we’re two Asian-American dudes with microphones, so we thought it was super important to let you know what we think about things. Today’s thing? The so-called Echo Chamber, what we think about it, why it’s important why it’s not important and when to recognize it.

Episode 23: Get Out

Welcome back Race Invaders. Like a bunch of you, we saw Get Out recently – currently enjoying having crossed the 100 million dollar mark at the box office. And like you, we really enjoyed it.

In addition to analyzing the film we get around to talking about the significance of Yasuhiko Oyama, the lone Asian character in the sea of white devils. Why was he there? We’ll tell you.

Episode 22: Mazel Tov Cocktail

Welcome back to Race Invaders! With Tim away on vacation, Alok is pleased to have Max Sparber as a guest host. An essayist and playwright, Max runs the blog Dress British Think Yiddish, where he talks about his journey in relearning the Yiddish language, his reactions to the resurgence of antisemitism in American discourse, and how to make the most Jewish cocktails around. We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did.

Episode 21a: All Alone in the Pod

Hey Race Invaders, this is Alok. I’m all alone in the pod, because no one told me it was fucking vacation month, damn. Anyway, this is just a short note to tell you about some things we’ve got coming up, some media for you to check out in the meantime (including some terrible nepotistic plugging), and a bit of a meditation on where the hell we are after not even three weeks of Trumpocalypse.

Episode 21: Collect Call

Welcome to another episode of Race Invaders, where we are desperately trying not to just talk about Trump all the goddamn time. Today we’re discussing calling people out versus calling people in; when should you put someone on blast, and when should you have a quiet word aside? We also talk about times we got told and had to change, and Tim has a few words for someone who believes that immigrants can just suck up their travel ban. Unsurprisingly, those words are: what the shit?
