Episode 51: ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ and Whitewashing Cinema with Jenny Yang

Episode 51

This is a feel good episode, ya’ll! We’ve got comedian Jenny Yang on the program to talk about Crazy Rich Asians. She is uniquely qualified to discuss this film because she has seen it FIVE TIMES! This episode also signals the return of “The King of Christmas” – Alonso Duralde. He has traveled to the east coast and back to regale the crew of tales from his journey and his love for lobster. Ricky pours one out for the death of “Hiatus Ricky” as he goes back to work on Tosh.0. Plus, the gang goes over some of the most atrocious examples of whitewashing in movies – from Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell to Emma Stone in Aloha. And as always, we’ve got Staff Picks.
