Anecdotes provide an interesting perspective, but this podcast often uses anecdotes as a means for individuals to over-generalize their own experiences or cast their suspicions as facts. There seems to be little effort to check facts or to contextualize these anecdotes within actual statistics. For example, what are the relative absolute and frequencies of violent crimes against people of Asian descent in the U.S.? Have those frequencies increased? Is it just a matter of increased reporting or sensitivity? Are there any relevant covariates to race that help explain the trends (vs. insinuating that all crimes against racial minorities are racially motivated)? This is just lazy story-telling with a lack of concern for facts, context, or journalistic integrity--as if you think allowing a guest to spread inaccurate information via your platform is not your problem.
