The inaugural episode of Mental Jiujitsu features a good friend of mine, Indigo Ross, a budding comedian to be. Funny story: there was a lot of echo in the room, so we decided to go under a big comforter blanket to block out the ambient noise. It's an interview that I'll never forget. She's been featured in several clubs in Scottsdale and is making her way up. In this conversation, she shares her methodology and struggles in writing comedic material, her desire to bomb on stage, and the Red Wall series, of all things. We also cover many other issues, including empowerment and racism in k-pop music and culture. If you're into easy-to-listen yet extremely-thought-provoking, you definitely want to listen to this one. - Mental Jiujitsu is a podcast about AAPI folk (or Asian-American Pacific Islanders) and how they are shifting the paradigm and changing the current narrative in their work, life story, society, and culture. Topics include aapi/poc representation in the media, the fleeting nature of human emotion, racism/sexism, physics, health and wellness, minority discrimination with like-groups, etc., among a variety of different topics. The crux of these conversations is to create gentle shifts in people's commonly held perspectives and promote visibility among minority demographics.
