Saturday School Podcast
About This Show
Wake up! Saturday School is a podcast where Brian Hu (@husbrian) and Ada Tseng (@adatseng) teach your unwilling children about Asian American pop culture history. New episodes released Saturdays at 8am, when all our friends are still in bed watching cartoons. Like this old-school photo of the hosts, it'll be a blast from the past, as they dig up some of their favorite works they've come across covering Asian American arts & entertainment over the years. The first season will be a Fall Semester 2016 course on Asian American comedy. Sign up for our newsletter below for lecture notes!
Most Recent Episode
Season 2, Ep. 10: Limited Partnership
This is our last episode of the second season, and we're ending it with a real life epic romance, told in the 2014 documentary Limited Partnership. It's the story of a Filipino American named Richard Adams; an Australian without a green card named Tony Sullivan; and their four-decade-long fight to stay together in America, despite the US government not recognizing their legal 1975 marriage as a "bona fide marriage" that should give them the same rights as heterosexual couples.
Earlier in the season, we talked about Kelly Loves Tony. We now try to convince you that the biopic you've all been waiting for is a yet-to-be-made Asian American feature film called Richard Loves Tony. Also, Ada diverts Brian away from a confusing use of the word "aroused" when he really means "awakened." So all the elements of a good Saturday School episode.
Saturday School is a podcast where we teach your unwilling children about Asian American pop culture history. Our first season was on Asian American comedy films. Our second season is about Asian Americans in love.
