Comedian, film student, kpop aficionado, and lowkey TikTok star Lauren Wong joins us to discuss how fandom brings joy; why scary movies are better if they're good; the time Lauren accidentally ended up at an LA movie premiere and met all of Asian Hollywood*; what the heck is "formal casual wear"; boba liberals; the bamboo ceiling; and the meaningfulness of meaninglessness. There's something for everybody, and everybody is somebody to someone, so I hope this episode is for you (Daniel Kwan). Enjoy, everyone (everywhere)!

Ep48 - Spooky Season Special 2022, Part BOO!! (Two)

October 25th, 2022

Special Spooky Compilation Edition! A whole slew of feature creatures volunteered for this episode, in which our guests each pick a spooky movie that means a lot to them! In endearingly spooky self-interviews, each guest asks themselves: What makes a good "Halloween movie"? Do you get scared during scary movies? And what's so special about the spooky movie you (me) wanna talk about? 

I want to thank the wonderful guests who submitted interviews for this fun community episode:

Follow everyone everywhere (all at once)! I loved hearing these fine folks' thoughts and feelings on these movies and why they're special - and spooky - to them. Thanks everyone, and thank YOU, listeners, and readers of these here words.
