Jungle vs. Fancy Asians
“If they’re Filipino…immediate red flag”⛳ “We’re civilized, we’re not like those Asians that eat with their hands” Sound familiar? Today, we talk about the terms “Jungle” and “Fancy” Asian, and how they divide Asian communities into those that are “cool” and acceptable, and those that are “dirty” and “uneducated”. 📚SOURCES📚 https://medium.com/@jcarastotomas/reclaiming-jungle-asian-4d18fa3ff1cf 🥠ABOUT FOB🥠 Song: Crying Over You https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiYs5z4xdBU Connect with us!

Happy Holidays to our Fob Family 💛🫶 The holidays can be a tough time for many.

The Gentrification of Asian Food
The Gentrification of Asian Food
*This episode was posted November 10 out of respect for Canadian Remembrance Day (November 11). We will be back to regular scheduling next episode. Welcome to part 1 of our food series! We have dedicated the month of November to all-things Asian food. In today’s episode, we go OFF on Asian food, and how it has been gentrified to meet the standards of wh*te people. From celebrity chefs like Gordan Ramsey and his Lucky Cat restaurant to that horrid bibimbap recipe featured on Guy Fieri’s show, we roasted them all. 🙏😤🔥 P.S. People that think chicken ball is Chinese food are banned from watching this video. Comment down below how many grains of rice you have in your rice container.😎  Song: Crying Over You https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiYs5z4xdBU Connect with us!

The Asian-Canadian History Canada Hid From Us
*headphone user warning at 6:11* We hate to bring this up, but school is right around the corner. With that, we decided to talk about our experiences with Asian-Canadian history that is taught (or lack thereof) in schools. From insensitive projects to confusing family trees to us exposing the Canadian government, we cover it all. We hope that this episode teaches you something about Canada's dark and hidden history of AAPI racism. Song: Crying Over You https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiYs5z4xdBU Connect with us!

Being Anti-Racist Isn’t a Flex
TW: MENTIONS OF RAPE AND ASSAULT Disclaimer: At the time of recording, the Turkish photo challenge to raise awareness of the violence against women had not existed yet. We were talking about a different photo trend that happened in March. However, we are in no way hating on the latter.  Happy 10th episode! Whether this is your first episode or your tenth, thank you so much for supporting our podcast! We always joke about no one listening, but there are actually a few people who do and that means a lot. We want to celebrate our tenth episode, but you know what we shouldn’t celebrate? We shouldn’t celebrate white people for being anti-racist. In light of recent events, many people have taken to social media to brag about being anti-racist or “woke”. People have also made memes out of serious social issues (ex: Breonna Taylor and  Megan Thee Stallion). Today we explore and dissect why that is in no way helpful to further social movements.

Crazy Cheap Asians
Crazy Cheap Asians
From double standards, Karen memes, to tips on saving money, in this episode we discuss everything “Crazy Cheap Asians!” NOTE: At 2:59 the show is called "19 and Counting" and the movie is called "Cheaper by the Dozen". DISCLAIMER: Our podcast episodes are pre-recorded and contain references to recent news (ex: Donald Trump’s racist remark towards Weijia Jiang). We must upload them on a specific schedule so the content does not become out-dated in relation to what is going on right now. That said, we have no intention to detract from the current situation and will continue to educate our audience and be allies to the Black community. We are working on projects outside of our podcast to shine a light on the BLM movement that will be released soon. Here’s a playlist of videos that donate all their ad revenue to organizations supporting the BLM movement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCgLa25fDHM&list=PLRbEKmpIDVq7k28Ka3j8WSR-OyDeHTFVA LINK TO RESOURCES: https://blacklivesmatter.carrd.co/ ------------ Connect with us!
