Loud Murmurs is a Mandarin-Chinese podcast about American pop culture, brought to you by four bilingual and bi-cultural women in the U.S. and their friends. We discuss movies, TV, documentaries, and the social, political issues reflected on by a piece of pop culture work. Too often, race, gender and other political and cultural issues are the subtext in pop culture. We seek to make the subtext explicit, question it and challenge it. The show is now in its third season, updated biweekly. We h ...

This is the episode you’ve all been waiting for. Let us save you the time of reading 10,000 think pieces on why the movie is bad, by telling you exactly why the movie is bad. Together with our beloved guests Tony Lin and Rui Zhong, hosts Ina, Izzy and Afra spend an hour talking about why we are thoroughly unimpressed by Disney’s 2020 live action re…
 
When the musical “Hamilton” first came out, all four of us were in our early 20s, trying to find our own place in a new country. We found hope and inspiration in the story of Alexander Hamilton as told by the musical—the story of a young, ambitious immigrant who became a hero of the American revolution. This past July 4th weekend, a original Broadw…
 
Violence is unsettling; violence in a civil demonstration is, for many, somehow more unsettling than violence sponsored by the state. This is the last episode in our three-part conversation about Black Lives Matter. Hosts Afra, Diaodiao and guests talk about the idea of “rioting” as presented in two movies: the National Geography’s documentary LA92…
 
我们都爱大几林!本期 Des 和老林聊了一些牙买加音乐,从最开始的雷鬼乐到现在的dancehall 跳舞音乐,老林指出牙买加对很多音乐的影响实在太深远了,有趣的是,美国主流音乐市场一开始并不待见牙买加音乐,反而是英国音乐与牙买加水乳交融。在音乐制作和审美逻辑上追求简洁的牙买加音乐,实际上对Hip-Hop甚至朋克乐的诞生都有不可忽视的意义,这一点却很少有人知道。从60年代的ska music,到70年代的reggae,80年代出现的dancehall music,再到90年代的ragga ,dancehall 与 Hip Hop ,电子乐的融合,在英国进化成Jungle, Grime, 00年代与拉丁音乐结合产生reggaeton,牙买加音乐开始被美国主流市场接纳,再到现在dancehall …
 
This is a very special episode and the second of our 3-part conversation about Black Lives Matter. Longtime listeners of Loud Murmurs know that we have talked about “Black Panther” and “Green Book” when they first came out—about white savior complex in “Green Book” and the significance of Black futurism in “Black Panther.” But we want to bring back…
 
The Hollywood classic "Gone With The Wind" has recently been removed from HBO Max, and returned to its cinematic library a mere two weeks later with additional content: an optional intro that gives “frank assessment of both the film’s own racist content and the racism of the times and environment into which it was released” and another hour-long re…
 
过去一半的2020 年太难了!!!!!!好在还有音乐陪伴我们,所以这期 Des 和 Desmond 就轻松总结一下这半年来我们喜欢的音乐和想分享讨论的新闻。 插播一条重要新闻:近期根据卫报的报道,播客产品 Pocket casts 和 Castro 由于拒绝中国政府要求其审查播客节目的要求,遭到中国区 app store 的下架,Pocket casts 对此作出回应:“We believe podcasting is and should remain an open medium, free of government censorship. As such we won’t be censoring podcast content at their request.“ 感谢 Pocke…
 
This is one of the most anticipated episodes on Loud Murmurs for Afra, Izzy, and Ina, who share a (un)healthy obsession with the Nickelodeon cartoon “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” We’ve also invited a special guest, Eris Qian (Zhuoyang), New York-based director and playwright, to talk about why we love the show so much. It’s not just us. The 15-year…
 
播客又来聊Kanye了!!!本次话题由前几天Ye宣布自己将要竞选美国总统展开。Des 和好朋友,也是本次嘉宾xibili 喝着酒畅所欲言聊了聊ye的“胡闹”,公众对于他竞选的反应,以及斗胆放开了说了点自己对美国一些政治问题的观察和看法。嘉宾xibili在美国上学并生活大概有7年了,所以她对讨论到的一些问题有很多切身感受,而Des则继续逼逼ye的反常规操作背后有什么逻辑,以及黑人群体被忽视的声音。所谓“进步的自由派”为什么讨厌ye?黑人群体的诉求和选择是什么?三年前戴上MAGA hat 的kanye真的是支持Trump吗?很多黑人为什么都表示会支持kanye竞选?少数族裔选民的身份政治,华裔和非裔的不同“投票为什么这么复杂?”Kanye简单却犀利的质疑在某种意义上是在fix this syst…
 
Michelle Obama is one of the most iconic women of our time and one of the most beloved First Lady in U.S. history.

最近由美国开始遍及全球的黑人抗争运动愈演愈烈,很多领域开始反思长久以来的种族歧视问题,在音乐行业,Republic Records 率先声明厂牌不再使用“urban music”这个流派类别,随后,格莱美把2013年开始设立的奖项”best urban contemporary music” 中的”urban contemporary music” 改名为了”progressive R&B”。“urban”这个词语在音乐中到底是哪种音乐类型?这个词语为何是对黑人群体的刻板印象?Des 和 Desmond 从格莱美改名开始聊了聊,也说到了美国音乐行业的一些事例,分享了最近喜欢的新音乐,希望大家听歌开心!本期嘉宾:依然是可爱的Desmond我们聊到的专辑有:“Channel ORANGE”(20…
 
从5月底一直到现在的黑人抗争运动,我想说点什么。可能有些人会觉得我得录一期节目,毕竟从表面上看来,hammer time是一个讲hip-hop音乐和黑人文化的中文播客,这个时候我应该说点儿什么。但是我说不出来,从我知道这件事的第一天开始,就有一种非常疲惫,窒息,压抑的感觉,我根本说不出来。hammer time这个播客,我觉得我几乎每一期都在说种族歧视的问题,从电影,音乐,任何一切,我都会说到这个族群遭受的不公和困境,我一直在说要放下偏见,去了解文化,去欣赏去享受,我也经常指出那些狭隘的人错在哪里。我知道支持我的人会明白我在说什么,无法打开心,无法站在人的角度去欣赏去思考的人可能永远都理解不了我为什么总是在说这些话题。但是在这个已经成为全球话题的事件中,我说不出来什么。就好像你在问,为什么K…

This episode is basically an hour-long of us singing the praises of sitcom “Schitt’s Creek,” written and produced by Dan Levy and Eugene Levy.

Dear listeners, we hope you’re doing well wherever you may be. The hosts of Loud Murmurs have all been staying at home to help curb the epidemic and we thought what better way to retain our sanity than to talk about death, the meaning of life and ethics?

好开心呀!我们的老朋友大几林(豆瓣)又来了!我们聊了聊最近听的音乐(当然,我主要还是表达了对Lil Uzi Vert 专辑 “Eternal Atake”的喜爱☺️),由此又延伸出一个翻来覆去说过的问题——“如何看待乐评”,以及我们自己是如何享受音乐的。其中还有些零散的个人观点,大部分是很私人的“歪理”,欢迎交流!聊到的专辑有:Eternal Atake—Lil Uzi Vert After Hours—The WeekndA Written Testimony—Jay ElectronicaSuga—Megan thee StallionNovember 1981—Bill DixonHammer Time Podcast 地址:https://anchor.fm/hammertimepo…

好久不见!!!!!!!本期嘉宾:老周,流行文化媒体“北方公园”的主编,一个精神上的说唱歌手,最近喜欢写谐音烂梗,也会把你的韵脚没收。我们聊的内容太随机了,主要是因为我最近正在经历一个不好解释的失语阶段,希望能从一些话题的刺激中找回我的表达欲。谢谢大家惦记着我!爱你们!(っ◔◡◔)っ本期推荐:电影《旧金山的最后一个黑人》The Space Program by A Tribe Called Quest 何伟的文章:The Peace Corps Breaks Ties with China 小说“那不勒斯四部曲”&HBO 《我的天才女友》后记:这期播客其实比较“老生常谈”,因为我们聊到的问题都已经不新鲜了,朋友们之间早就默认了很多事情没有继续探讨的必要,有些话我们从来没有公开表达过(出于各种不…
 
In this episode, we talk about the 2019 movie “Bombshell” and two books that started the global “MeToo” movement—Ronan Farrow’s “Catch and Kill” and “She Said” by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey. It’s been almost 4 years since Trump’s “Pussygate” and his election, three years since the bombshell news story of Weinstein broke, two years since the Kavan…
 
2020 has been a rough year for us -- with the Coronavirus spreading from central China to all across the globe, we realized how small we are as humans in the face of a global health epidemic, yet also how grand humanity can be in the time of disasters. As we grow weary of shedding tears, we try to make sense of it all, discussing with peers and loo…

Des跟好朋友塞汤PUOS的胡说八道: 塞汤刚翻译完 “The Rap Year Book”这本书的中文版,但这书好像真的要黄了,出版社也是不容易(点蜡),我们对这本书的主要思路和内容都有点意见; Hip-Hop到底该怎么听啊,我们觉得听好音乐是一方面,最重要的是你得去生活去,你得有判断力; 作为一个中年嘻哈人士,塞汤的感悟和反思(一种胡说的智慧)。 介绍一下嘉宾塞汤:他一直以一个outsider(嘻哈社畜)的身份在中文嘻哈圈里hustle,跟大几林在十几年前搞了个玩儿票团叫DDM。跟我一样,我们都觉得拆腻子嘻哈圈特别完蛋。 Hamer Time Podcast 地址:https://anchor.fm/hammertimepodcast 这里可以看到我们上线的各个平台,也推荐通过rss订阅…

Hi我是主播Des,这期简单总结一下节目的新情况。 送给各位《黑暗时代群像》的作者序,by 汉娜阿伦特: 广义地说,这里所说的「黑暗时代」指的并不是这个世纪才冒出来的庞然巨兽,相反地,黑暗时代不仅一点都不新,而且在历史上绝非少见,美国历史上或许闻所未闻,但无论过去与今天,其中也不乏类似的罪恶与灾难。即使是在最黑暗的时代,人们还是有期望光明的权利,而光明与其说是来自于理论与观念,不如说是来自于凡夫俗子所发出的莹莹微光,在他们的起居作息中,这微光虽然摇曳不定,但却照亮周遭,并在有生之年流泻于大地之上。 1968年1月 Hamer Time Podcast 地址:https://anchor.fm/hammertimepodcast 这里可以看到我们上线的各个平台,也推荐通过rss订阅收听。 P.…
 
希望你能听完,并且明白我在说什么。 P.S. 经过听友补充重新清晰讨论的范围:本期讲的Chinese是简体中文; 再次补充:“f***k the po-po”这句词出现在很多美国Hip-Hop歌曲中,主播所讲的Kendrick是一个示例,并不是说这句话出自他。在表达上造成误解非常抱歉。 本期参与嘉宾: Valerie:在加拿大留学,政治学学生。 喜逼力:在加州某科技公司上班儿,Des 的战友&homegirl.
