She soon after launched a TikTok account that exploded and, along with her other platforms, boasts over 3.5 million fans. She's appeared on The Food Network and Al Jazeera English, been featured in the Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, NPR, and CNN, and has just released her debut cookbook + memoir, The Korean Vegan Cookbook.A Korean American woman, born in Chicago, Joanne's parents were both born in what is now known as North Korea. Their harrowing journey to the states led them to settle in Chicago. From her earliest days, she was deeply aware of inequity and felt an empathic call to advocacy, along with the impulse to help guide people through a process of change. That led her into the law, which remained her central devotion, literally, until the day before we recorded this conversation. Her TikTok (@thekoreanvegan), was started largely as a coping mechanism for the isolation caused by the global pandemic. She began posting content related to politics and life as a lawyer during quarantine. However, after a single post of her making Korean braised potatoes for dinner (while her husband taught a piano lesson in the background) went viral, Joanne shifted her attention to producing 60-second recipe videos while telling stories about her life, family, and the state of the world.

ITVT is pleased to present the latest episode of Televisionation: Screen Culture, our new video series exploring the symbiotic relationship between culture and filmed content—television, streaming, and cinema. Hosted by fandom expert Lisa Crawford, Screen Culture was created for thoughtful discussions about the impact of premium filmed content on today's society. Matt Brennan is Senior Editor for Television and Pop Culture at the Los Angeles Times. Before joining the Times as television editor, Matt served as Paste Magazine's TV editor. His writing has also appeared in Indiewire, Slate, and numerous other publications. Born in the Boston area, educated at USC and an adoptive New Orleanian for nearly 10 years, he currently resides in Los Angeles. Matt can be found on Twitter as @thefilmgoer, and recently spearheaded the launch of the LA Times' Screen Gab newsletter. In this episode of Screen Culture, Matt shares the realities of a career in entertainment journalism, his focus on covering television not solely as a product or “artifact” but instead as “the conversation around the artifacts,” and his belief that we're now in a “Gilded Age” of television. Expressing his view that the widely regarded “Golden Age” of television in the aughts was more an “aesthetic movement” than time period, Matt compares the era of Don Draper and Walter White against the large ensembles of Succession and The Crown. He envisions today's “Gilded Age” of TV content as one where forms—drama and comedy—are melding together and shows more closely reflect contemporary societal issues. In a brief discussion of an essay by critic James Wolcott, Matt suggests that we must adapt further to recognize and respond to TV's cultural dominance and the way it's being consumed and understood. Matt and Lisa also cover:The need for accurate and effective depictions of the working class on TV;The importance of greater diversity and representation in writers' rooms;The underrated status of The Americans, and Matt's ongoing love for The Good Fight as his “favorite show on TV right now.”

Social Media www.facebook.com/ninameehan     https://www.instagram.com/nmeehan/ instagram.com/bactheatre    https://www.instagram.com/bactheatre   https://www.facebook.com/bakctheatre    I am the founder of Bay Area children's theatre which me and my friends started 18 years ago and we have produced enough shows to reach literally a million people. [2:58] The part that I think is the most exciting for me is the growth from where we started to now having professional adult actors for family and student audiences and also working with young people. [3:35] The growth of the organization has truly been because of the demand from the community. [4:07] What I have learned over those years as a theatre creator is that art and creativity bring all the soft skills into our world. [4:26] Kids in a lot of ways are far more willing to take that risk of getting up there on stage than adults. [6:40] The power of what it looks like to see a kid stand up and own their art, reflects self-confidence and independence which are skills that children need. [7:35] We did online theatre during the pandemic and interestingly, the same transformative moments were experienced, where participants owned and took charge of their performances. [7:52] The power of theatre to transform and shock potential is so hug [8:10] What I've seen with the adults that we engage with that is interesting, is the conversation that their children's performances initiate afterwards. [8:15] As adults we are often putting limitations on ourselves with the excuse that we are not artists yet maybe we are. [12:27] I have loved working with kids for 18 years and it's been so beautiful seeing adults try to take the step to be creative. [12:55] The more that we can open that potential and that opportunity to redefine what it is to be a creative in our current modern world the more we can be creative and express ourselves. [13:50] We are programmed to be creative beings and that comes in lots of different shapes and forms. [16:26] Encouraging the people around us is important because that is our power, considering so much of being creative is about just allowing ourselves the permission to do it. [18:22] The more that we can say how we feel and appreciate art, the more we can have moments where we can value the creativity in the people around us. [18:52] Commercial break. [20:25] In terms of giving back to your community, I think it is so important to look around and see who in your community is doing work that is inspiring the next generation to become creative leaders. [22:43] We all want empathetic humans taking over from us in the next generation. [ We are all working on a shoestring but there is a whole world of non-profit organizations out there that would love to have support in different ways. [23:45] The other part of it is really looking into your own being and finding your own creative moments that brings you joy, and bring that into your adult world. [24:23] For entrepreneurs, for those who run businesses, board service for non-profit organizations is an insanely huge and powerful gift you can give back to your community. [26:23] The way non-profit sector is set up, we cannot function without a dedicated arm that is our board of directors. [26:44] Find time today to try creative play and just see what happens.

In this interview, Alexander and I talk a lot about money, and specifically, about how asking for money and negotiating for what you want and need is a key piece of building a healthy relationship with your work and career. We also talked about the myth of the solitary artist, and the reality: that community and relationships are key to not just success, but survival. Finally, Alexander is the source of an incredibly pivotal insight for me: that caring for your creative process IS self-care, and when you allow yourself the margin to take care of your work process, it benefits not only your body and mental health (and that of your family and loved ones) but the work itself. More from the episode... The importance of collective action in securing the rights of authors. The role of community in creative career-building. How is writing "a community project"? What is the "golden thread" and how does it help creators build relationships with their followers? The word "networking" sounds "weirdly clinical" to Alexander— why at some point he figured out that's what he was doing, and that it was a key to his success. What's a better way to look at this fraught term? Alexander breaks down why writers should always ask for more money: "Sometimes people are like, how come the Queen of the Night took you so long? And it's like, well, I did waste a lot of time writing essays for $150." What was in the folder writer Denis Johnson (Jesus's Son) labeled "answers"? Instead of running himself into the ground because he's eager to please, Alexander lays out his process to not overschedule himself. How earning with your work can help you make more work, in a literal as well as an emotional sense: "It won me ...a typewriter that I then used to write for a long time. And that typewriter became a talisman at a time that I needed a talisman. I wrote this typewriter into existence. I'm now using it to write more stories." "Don't be so grateful that you let yourself down." —What Alexander would tell his younger self if he could. Why it's so important to trust yourself and recognizing when self-doubt is holding you back from pursuing your creative goals. Alexander lays out several important pieces of advice to novice pro writers, including "There's no reason to think that just because you're an unknown writer you can't somehow get a decent fee for your work." More from our guest: Alexander Chee is the author of the novels Edinburgh, The Queen of the Night, and the essay collection How To Write An Autobiographical Novel as well as many short stories and essays.

California's conditional release program, known as CONREP, is supposed to enable patients leaving state psychiatric hospitals to transition to an independent life and avoid violent relapses. But a new investigation by The Marshall Project and the Los Angeles Times found that CONREP can put former patients in a decades-long legal limbo during which the state dictates where they live, whether they can work and whom they can see -- even requiring permission for activities like creative writing or joining a book group.

Everything has a story — including that street couch in your neighborhood. As USC professor and creator of streetcouch.com Keith Plocek puts it: “Just think of all the sitting. All the conversations. All the silences. Life. Death. Butts. Pets.” And then one day, that piece of furniture ends up on the street and a new story begins — a lucky find for someone, a new canvas for a graffiti artist or an addition to the landfill. In a recent story for the Los Angeles Times, reporter Julissa James explored the range of experiences with street furniture, from the joy of a good find and refurbishing job to the queasy questioning of what's in those cushions, especially in the age of COVID-19. We'll talk about the culture of street furniture and hear your street furniture stories.

Maria and Julio talk about the election in California to recall Governor Gavin Newsom. They hear from Jean Guerrero, an opinion columnist for the Los Angeles Times about how this effort was rooted in white supremacy. They also get into the Senate hearing on how FBI agents failed to investigate allegations of sexual abuse against former physician, Larry Nassar. And finally, they debrief the Met Gala. ITT Staff Picks: Nathalie Baptiste writes about the flaws of California's recall election process in this piece for Mother Jones. Danielle Campoamor writes “The strength required of those who testified during the hearing, and of every sexual assault victim who comes forward, is not innate, but born out of necessity. It is the result of the blatant and consistent failures of others,” in this piece for The Lily. Zeeshan Aleem writes about why Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's dress broke Twitter in this op-ed for MSNBC. Photo credit: AP Photo/Ashley Landis See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
