Update: I’m listening to it now and it seems like there’s a bit of lagging/shifting going where it sounds like I’m constantly cutting Jenn off mid-sentence. Sorry folks, that’s just Skype acting up.
We’re ba-ack! The hiatus lasted a little longer than I thought it would, but Addicted to Race is here again. We’ve got some new theme music (thanks, Garageband!) and I bought a new mic, so hopefully the sound quality has improved a bit.
For those of you who are new to this blog, Addicted to Race is New Demographic’s podcast about America’s obsession with race.
Here’s a rundown of what you’ll find in this episode:
Is “Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay” really the best thing ever to happen to Asian-American cinema? Carmen and Jenn Fang discuss this stoner comedy’s implications on race and gender. Also, does Barack Obama believe in the American flag? We break down the politics of patriotism as it’s playing out in this presidential race.
Got feedback for us? Call 917-720-6348 or email email@example.com.
Guest co-host Jenn Fang blogs at Reappropriate: a blog focusing on issues of race, gender, and grassroots activism as they affect the formation of the Asian American sociopolitical identity.
