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!

For this week's episode of Saturday School, we go back to 1982 and Wayne Wang's Chan Is Missing, a film widely regarded as a pioneer of Asian American cinema. But for all it's critical acclaim and prestige, we look at the comedy and discuss why it's still fun to watch today. Ada wonders whether this is how her parents and their friends talked and acted as immigrants back in the 1980's. Brian brings it all back to LL Cool J.
Saturday School is a podcast where we teach your unwilling children about Asian American pop culture history. First season will be about Asian American film comedies. 10 episodes will be released every Saturday at 8am, which is when we were forced to go to Chinese school as kids.
