Growing up as a Chinese American daughter of a mail-order bride and a busboy in San Francisco's Chinatown, Bonnie Gray never felt like she belonged. She spent her childhood hiding “Chinese Bonnie” who lived in a dysfunctional home in poverty, so she could be accepted as cheerful “American Bonnie” who lived a life that looked like everybody else's. Bonnie joins me on the podcast today, and you'll hear how she made peace with her past and how it has changed everything about her future. As she was trying to throw away pieces of her past—the ones she thought no one wanted—she discovered God was tenderly gathering all the broken fragments to build a new story of faith and joy. It's only when we learn to embrace the truth of our past that we can finally make sense of our present and celebrate what truly matters. SHOW NOTES: 413podcast.com/200

Episode 92Greetings, Explorers! Yeah, see. We're takin' a look at The Good Asian, Vol 1. Image Comics published the comic in 2021. Yeah, see. Pornsak Pichetshote wrote the story with art by Alexandre Tefenkgi. Additional contributions as follows, ya mug: color by Lee Loughridge and lettering & design by Jeff Powell. Historical consultation by Grant Din.Set in 1936, Eddy Hark is a Chinese-American cop. Actually, he's the first Chinese-American cop in the country. Eddy returns to San Francisco at the request of the wealthy Carroway family. He's in town investigating the disappearance of a young woman employed by the family. The Carroways and Eddy Hark have a difficult relationship. His mother was their servant and they took him in after she was murdered. Eddy's disliked by his fellow police and not trusted by the Asian-American community he serves. But no one hates Eddy as much he does for being a pawn in America's anti-Chinese policies of the early 20th Century.Aubrey, Dennis, and Johnny begin things by looking back at their histories with noir and mystery novels. Next, they learn about Chang Apana, the real-life inspiration for Eddy (and Charlie Chan). Finally, they delve into the author's mix of real-world events like the Chinese Exclusion Act in The Good Asian. Additional topics include Eddy's self-loathing; the language of the times the book takes place in; noir tropes; and if America will ever stop “othering” people. Last of all, but not certainly not least, they look at the storytelling and art of The Good Asian. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

In June 2012, Egypt held its first ever free democratic Presidential election. Mohamed Morsi, representing the Muslim Brotherhood, emerged victorious. Ben Henderson spoke to Rabab El-Mahdi, Chief Strategist to one of Morsi's rival candidates. She described what it was like to be involved in the first election of its kind, how Morsi tried to recruit her, and the personal impact of political campaigning in such a polarised country. In June 1982 a young Chinese-American engineer was murdered with a baseball bat by two white men in the US city of Detroit. The lenient sentences the perpetrators received sparked an Asian-American activist movement with protests across the US. At the time, America was going through an economic depression and many blamed Japan, which was perceived to be flooding the US with its cars. For Asian-Americans, it was a time of fear. Farhana Haider spoke to Helen Zia, one of the activists who led the fight for justice. This programme was first broadcast in 2017. In 2003, Dr Nayana Patel, who ran her own fertility clinic in the state of Gujarat in India, carried out her first surrogacy procedure. It involved a surrogate mother and her own daughter. Dr Patel's clinic would go on to become one of the biggest in India attracting Western couples. It was legalised in 2002 but due to growing criticism, the government banned couples from the West from paying Indian surrogates to bear their children in 2015, arguing that the industry was exploiting poor women. Reena Stanton-Sharma spoke to Dr Nayana Patel. In 1985, the first robot-assisted medical surgery took place in Vancouver, Canada. It's now become a standard feature of operating theatres worldwide. The original gadget was named Arthrobot. A member of the original project team, Geof Auchinleck, told his story to Kurt Brookes. A Made in Manchester production.

We spoke with Stacey, Bill, Pam, and Judd  about why this film is coming out now, what they may have learned about Pedro that they didn't know while the doc was being made, landing a sit-down interview with President Bill Clinton, what it was like to know Pedro as a friend, how Pedro's family feels about the film, and so much more. It was and is an honor to have all of these folks on our show and to be able to talk about Pedro was healing.

Their modern take on Chinese street food was an immediate hit with the locals of Bellevue, WA, and they knew that their recipes were destined for a much bigger audience. So just like those other family-owned brands that came before her, Jen has her sights set on national recognition. Her goal is for XCJ to become the default Chinese food company in America. Listen in as we cover everything from why most of her customers live in an Asian-food desert, why hiring someone to handle XCJ's marketing was low on her priority list, and what it means to be a third culture kid.

The independent film festival Dances with Films is underway and we had the pleasure of watching one of the festival's feature documentaries Rewilding.  Rewilding follows Anthony Dejesus, a 27-year-old budding artist and former Rikers Island inmate, as he leaves New York City for the first time with avid rock climbers and wilderness guides Jesse Spiegel and Vitek Linhart, determined to field test a program to take formerly incarcerated men into the wild. The documentary pushes all participants in ways they never imagined and also opens them up to hard conversations with each other and themselves as they travel in a van for 7 weeks around the country. We had on one of the rock climbing leaders who also was the planner of much of the road trip - Vitek Linhart as well as the participant, all the way from the Bronx, Anthony Dejesus. We talked with the duo about the word privilege and what it meant to them before and after the film was finished, pet therapy, how the discussion of race is at the forefront of this film, and more. Rewilding is a thought piece film. Even while you watch the hardest parts of the test program and how it unfolds, we hope this inspires more adventures that push conversations about race and privilege  and what it means to be a brown or black person in nature spaces. If you're in the LA area on June 19, head to the world premiere of this special film.

【聊了什么】 “外宾”是个很刺眼的词,我们也会常常被指做“外宾”。我们每天输入和阅读的文字当中,有很大一部分来自于“外宾视角”下的中国。 许多英文作者、或者中国作者,用冷冰冰的英文,来向我们介绍和描述一个热气腾腾的、真实的中国。这里面的撕裂,让我们想要去做一期节目。 在英文写作中,在非虚构故事中,二代移民 VS 中国本土视角有怎样的冲突?故土和历史的距离赋予了许多华裔作家自由创作的权力,但同时他们仿佛拥有看起来很刺眼的特权。英文环境下长大的人能否准确地刻画对于在中国长大,生活的人,和人们真实经历的生活?以及如果你是一个中国出生长大的作家,用英语写作是一种对思维和真实经历的折损吗?本期请来了我们的好朋友Rui Zhong(华人二代移民), Karoline Kan(用英语写作、常驻北京的中国记者)和Caiwei Chen(英文写作者、记者),让她们聊聊自己用英文书写的经历。 "Being foreign" is a harsh way to describe a group of people. And we are often referred to as "foreign guests". A large part of the reading we devour every day comes from this "foreign guest perspective". Many English writers, or Chinese people who write in English, would use a cold, alienated tone to portray a "real China." However, we sense China in a more vivid way. The dichotomy of competing China narratives inspired this episode. In English writing, in non-fiction stories, what is the conflict between the perspectives of second-generation immigrants and Chinese natives? The distance between homeland and history has given many Chinese-American writers the power to create freely, but at the same time they seem to have privileges that some of us don't have. Can people who grew up in an English-speaking environment accurately describe China as a country and experience? And if you are a writer born and raised in China, is writing in English a compromise of your authentic thinking and wholeness? In this episode, we invited our friends Rui Zhong, Karoline and Caiwei to talk about their experiences of writing in English. 【时间轴】 00:00 这期节目的起源: 一本我们吐槽的、关于文革的虚构小说 08:20 二代移民 VS 中国本土视角差别在哪里 16:50 为什么我们会感到某种“不公”,在输出英文时,中国写作者的尝试更艰苦,要付出更多情感劳动 19:27 Karoline Kan用英文写自传时的经历 35:00 “谁的声音被听到“和身份政治叙事的短板 45:00 需要更多全世界都能的共情故事 50:20 为什么我们不再不解释 & Chaoyang Trap House广告时间 00:00 What inspired us to do the show: a fictional novel about the Cultural Revolution that we rant about 08:20 What is the difference between the second-generation immigrants and the Chinese native perspective 16:50 Why do we feel some kind of "injustice", Chinese writers try harder and pay more emotional labor when writing in English 19:27 Karoline Kan's experience writing her autobiography in English 35:00 "Whose voice is heard" and the identity politics 45:00 Need more universal stories 50:20 why we don't explain in our writings anymore & the genesis story of Chaoyang Trap House 【买咖啡】 如果喜欢这期节目并愿意想要给我们买杯咖啡: 海外用户:https://www.patreon.com/cyberpinkfm 海内用户:https://afdian.net/@cyberpinkfm 商务合作邮箱:cyberpinkfm@gmail.com 商务合作微信:CyberPink2022 If you like our show and want to support us, please consider the following: Those Abroad:https://www.patreon.com/cyberpinkfm Those in China:https://afdian.net/@cyberpinkfm Business Inquiries Email:cyberpinkfm@gmail.com Business Inquiries WeChat: CyberPink2022

Election Special Flashback with SF District Attorney Chesa Boudin

Hello listeners! We have an election tomorrow, June 7 in San Francisco and one of the city propositions is to recall our District Attorney.  We interviewed the D.A. back in the fall of 2021  and thought it would be a good reminder for our fellow voters to re-run this interview with Chesa. If you haven't voted yet or on the fence about this recall campaign, we hope you'll listen with an open mind and read some of the links we've provided below as reference. This recall is undemocratic periodt.  Over here at Bitch Talk, we were very happy to welcome San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin onto the podcast. If you're not familiar with him, here's the basics. In 2019, Chesa Boudin ran for the open seat of District Attorney of SF and won by a narrow margin. Chesa ran on a progressive platform talking about the elimination of cash bail, ending mass incarceration, and eliminating racial bias in the criminal justice system. While he was running for office as well as after he won, his very vocal (and heavily funded) opponents have turned to not one, but two recall attempts (the first failed to get enough signatures) to remove him from office for purely political reasons. In our opinion, he's been scapegoated on topics such as car break-ins, theft, and the increase in San Francisco's unhoused population. Hello! Remember that little ol' global pandemic that we all are living through? Anyway, if this recall succeeds, San Francisco Mayor London Breed would appoint a replacement DA. Does that seem like a democratic process?In this interview, we get to know who Chesa is and where he's from, what the District Attorney's job is and what it isn't, why SF crime stats don't lie (violent crimes are down, btw), his office's achievements, and what he looks forward to. We are thankful for the time Chesa had for us and we hope to have him back again closer to the recall election in June.Read up folks, there's a lot of dark money out there wanting to take away our voting power, even in San Francisco. Need more info about the recall?

Book Vs. Movie: The Joy Luck ClubAmy Tan's 1989 Novel Vs the 1993 Wayne Wang FilmTo finish out AAPI month the Margos talk about Amy Tan and her debut novel The Joy Luck Club which became a sensation when it was released in the late 1980s. The Oakland, California native was raised by Chinese immigrant parents who instilled a strong ethic in her and wanted her to take advantage of being an American while remaining Chinese in her heart and actions. Tan found this very tough, especially after her father & brother died and she wound up in Switzerland at the age of 15. We talk about Tan's teenage years and her strained relationship with her mother which later became fodder for her first novel. In 1989 the hardcover book sold over 275, 000 copies, and the paperback rights went for $1.2 million. It was just a matter of time to get the book adapted into a film. The Joy Luck Club is the story of four immigrant families who are all based in San Francisco with the daughters struggling to emotionally connect with their strict mothers. The women are complex and have many secrets between them that go all the way back to their time in China. Each has a story about why they wanted to come to America and how challenging it is to raise a child in a new culture while retaining your principles and values. The film was directed by Wayne Wang who hired the best Asian actors in the business to play the Chinese American cast. The film was highly successful but it was still decades before an all Asain cast had a hit film in America (Crazy Rich Asians.) There were several differences between the novel which had eight different stories to tell and the movie which has just over an hour and 30 minutes run time. So between the two, which did we like more? The book or the movie? In this ep the Margos discuss:Amy Tan's background and the inspiration for her bookThe different women in China and San Francisco and how they all relate to each otherThe changes between the novel and the 1993 movieThe cast: Rosalind Chao (Rose,) Lauren Tom (Lena,) Tamlyn Tomita (Waverly,) Ming-Na Wen (June,) Tsai Chin (Lindo,) Kieu Chinh (Suyann,) Lisa Lu (An-Mei,) France Nuyen (Ying-Ying,) Andrew McCarthy (Ted,) Christopher Rich (Rich,) Michael Paul Chan (Harold,) and Russell Wong (Lin Xiao.)
