Simon Tam is the founder and bassist of The Slants, the world’s first and only all Asian American rock band. He’s also an author, activist, and self-proclaimed troublemaker, setting a world record by appearing on the TEDx stage 13 times. Asians are one of the most bullied demographics in America. When Simon Tam was growing up in San Diego, he faced the brunt of that. Bullies would make fun of him for the shape of his eyes. Well, when Simon grew up, he reclaimed that slur. Not only did he name his band The Slants, they won a historical Supreme court case which gave him the right to trademark his band’s name. Lucia speaks to Simon about his Asian American upbringing and how that prompted him to start an Asian American band named The Slants. ----------------------------- The Slant’s Supreme Court Case: https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/06/19/533514196/the-slants-win-supreme-court-battle-over-bands-name-in-trademark-dispute Listen to The Slants: http://www.theslants.com/discography/ The Slants foundation: http://theslants.org/ Simon’s Website: https://www.simontam.org/ Follow Simon on Twitter: https://twitter.com/simonthetam --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rocktheboat/message

The Asian American experience is a complicated one. We all have our different realities when it comes to our relationship with our culture and identity. This is compounded by the fact that America is becoming more diverse, but also more divisive. To help combat xenophobia against Asians and reach across the aisle, a group of Asian American leaders and organizations came together to create the #AllAmericans campaign. One of these leaders is Brian Yang. Brian is a community organizer, actor, filmmaker, and most recently the former fundraising co-chair for Andrew Yang’s 2020 presidential campaign. He is most known for his role as Charlie Fong in 2010 TV series Hawaii Five 0, and is also the producer of the Jeremy Lin documentary. During our conversation, Brian opens up about what really happened during the Iowa caucuses, he shares the true intention behind Andrew Yang’s controversial Op-Ed piece, and what we, as a community, need to do to build solidarity.  ——————————————- Watch the PBS Documentary series Asian Americans: https://www.pbs.org/show/asian-americans/ Visit www.AllAmericans.us and join the movement We Are All Americans PSA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hip_BRY0XW8 Follow Brian Yang Twitter/Instagram: @briflys ——————————————- Follow Rock the Boat on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @rocktheboatnyc.

Dating is hard, especially now when meeting-in person is almost impossible. Dating within the Asian American community is even harder since there are unfair dating dynamics at play for Asian men and Asian women. One out of three Asian Americans marry outside of their race where Asian women are two times more likely than Asian men to marry outside their race. Media’s portrayal of Asian men doesn’t help either. To dig a bit deeper into dating dynamics, Lucia sits down with Ruby Le, a professional dating coach and founder of The Good Gentleman. She prides herself in rooting for the nice guys. In this talk, we dissect some of the biggest mistakes men and women make while dating. Ruby also opens up about her choice to pursue a career as a dating coach to the chagrin of her parents, and talks about the silver lining of dating during COVID. ——————————————- Check out The Good Gentleman: https://goodgentleman.com/ Listen to Ruby’s Tedx Talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PGoy-spWiA Celest Ng’s piece on The Cut: When Asian Women are Harassed for Marrying Non Asian Men NPR does a great job of breaking down some of the deep rooted issues of Asian male anger towards Asian women who marry outside their race: Invisibilia: A Very Offensive Rom Com Do you have thoughts on this topic?
