AABG Interview with Yuji Okumoto and The Nerds Of Color

ICYMI Stephen, Yuji Okumoto and I were guests on The Hard NOC Life back in early April with the guys at The Nerds of Color.

Who are the Nerds of Color? Well, why don’t I just steal some copy from their website:

We are a community of fans who love superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy and video games but are not afraid to look at nerd/geek fandom with a culturally critical eye.

Thanks to Keith Chow and Nelson Wong for their hospitality. We had a ton of fun.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Keith and the guys talk about the wonders of Awesome Asian man sandwiches
  • Patrick and Stephen give the skinny on AABG‘s world premiere during CAAMFest in San Francisco
  • Yuji reveals how his Karate Kid co-star Tamilyn Tomita convinced him to join the cast
  • How does the series subvert the longstanding stereotype of the Asian villain?
  • Which actresses Patrick and Stephen would like to see in an Awesome Asian Bad Girls spinoff
  • The differences between Stephen and Patrick’s directorial style and, say, Christopher Nolan’s
  • Everyone’s favorite Awesome Asian Bad Guy
  • All this and more on Hard NOC Life! Watch it on your screen, hit “play,” and check this.

Definitely go check out the rest of their stuff at TheNerdsOfColor.org as well as on Twitter and Facebook. They cover A LOT of pop culture, and I have a feeling they’re going to be around for a long, long time.
