We had our friend Benjamin Teh around for a social visit, but given the events of the last week, it turned into an impromptu podcast episode: https://www.spreaker.com/episode/44011021
In this episode, we discuss Asian Creativity with Benjamin Teh, in the wake of the Atlanta shootings in March 2021.
Please note regarding the list of names: The version of the news story that Ben found and read misspelled the first name of Delaina Yaun. The story also misspelled Xiaojie Tan’s last name based on information provided by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office. The story was also updated to include full and correct names for Yong Ae Yue, Hyun Jung Grant and Soon Chung Park.
