Episode notes

Sierra Katow is an Asian-American woman in stand-up comedy, but those parts of her identity are surface-level. What you might not know about Sierra (unless you watch her new special, FUNT) is that she’s also a little sister. That’s not the only point of recognition she has with Lilo and Mei, heroes of Lilo & Stitch and My Neighbor Totoro, but it’s certainly first on the list. She and Jordan discuss that list, and why Sierra isn’t interested in representing anyone but herself onstage.

About the show

On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
