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!

BONUS Episode: Flower Drum Song (with Oliver Wang)
This bonus episode of Saturday School -- recorded at the Potluck Podcast Collective Lounge at the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival with special guest Oliver Wang -- is the equivalent of summer cram session: while class is usually a swift 10-min affair, this time around, you get a packed 40-min conversation that goes all the way from 1960 to today. We talk about the delight of seeing Asian American movie stars singing and dancing onscreen in a Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, discuss the joys (and sorrows) of being Team Helen, and give a teaser of what we'll be exploring next season!
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.
