May might be coming to a close, but it’s always a good time to appreciate and learn more about Asian Americans through books, TV series, and movies. My good friend (and friend of the show), Tasha Jun, is back on The Couch this week to talk about some of our favorite stories about Asian Americans. We’re talking about everything from children’s picture books to Oscar-winning movies, and you don’t want to miss it!

And, of course, because this is The Couch where side notes and rabbit trails are always welcome, we also talk about Tasha’s new book, the origins of AAPI Heritage Month, zombies as my least favorite monster, the importance of representation and why we keep talking about it, favorite snacks and fast food, and elephant documentaries. We covered a lot! But most importantly, we made a list of great stories about Asian Americans for you. So, let’s get started!
