Welcome to this BONUS episode of The Couch. Today I’m here with my good friends and friends of the show, Tasha Jun and Michelle Reyes.

Tasha is biracial Korean American storyteller, and Michelle is a second-generation Indian American author, speaker, and activist. And, like me, they are both wives, moms, writers for the (in)courage website, and big fans of Marvel movies. But though we share quite a few things in common, they do bring a different perspective to our conversation about Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. I’m grateful for their insight, and I know you’re going to love this episode. Let’s get right to it!

QUESTIONS DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Why does it matter that the MCU has an Asian superhero? 
  • In what ways does the movie Shang-Chi challenge Asian stereotypes?
  • Why is it important/what difference did it make to not only have Asian/Asian Americans as actors, but also as the writer and director of the film?
  • What (if anything) did the movie teach us or reveal to us about God?
  • What (if anything) did the movie teach us or reveal to us about people and/or ourselves?
