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!

Season 3, Ep. 10: A Song For Ourselves
7 days ago
Our last episode of our season about Asian American music movies brings us full circle - from episode 1's "Cruisin' J-Town," produced by Visual Communications, co-founded by Robert Nakamura, to this week's episode about the 2009 documentary "A Song For Ourselves," by Robert's son Tad Nakamura, about the political life and music of the late Chris Iijima.
We reflect on how the Asian American movement has evolved in the last fifty years, and how our own individual lives evolve as we learn to balance politics with family and/or other priorities that begin to shift when we get older. But most importantly, Ada tries to make a "Tad Nakamura-thon" a thing.
