DEFENDING APU [EP. 14]

In this episode, Jared Lovrak and I talk about The Simpson's character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon and voice actor Hank Azaria's recent decision to stop voicing Apu.

APU SHOW NOTES
  •  The origins of Apu.
  •  Why Apu is a hero.
  •  Why people find the character offensive.
  •  Why Hank Azaria is stepping down from the character.
  •  Will this lead to more character's being abandoned for the sake of political correctness?
  •  What racial stereotypes look like outside the United States.
  •  Why not laugh?

And lots more!
