Ep. 25: I Drink Hot Water
Kate and Yoko are joined by ethnographer and people organizer Christina Xu. We talk about Christina’s relationship with the internet, and how she creates channels for enabling other people to do their most ambitious work . Also, Kate’s officiating her second wedding and conducted a survey about love (by the way, she’s got a boyfriend now. Y’all slept on that).
Shoutout to Jong-jin Kim, aka Chloe Kim’s dad, aka 2018 Women’s Snowboarding Olympic Gold Medalist Chloe Kim’s dad, aka Kate’s model minority. Have you seen the Super Bowl commercial he’s in? Prepare to ugly cry.
Yoko’s model minority is Andrew “AGame” Mam, dancer and general connoisseur of the arts. We really appreciated that he shared his experience battling the “undateable Asian guy” stereotype. Also, we really appreciate his siiick dance moves, which he shows off in this hilarious video.
HEY If you’re engaged or married and interested in helping Kate conduct some more research on why people decide to cross the threshold of marriage together, you can fill out her survey here. Thank you in advance!
