#sorryasianparents EP15 – When Are You Too Old For Your Hobbies and The Rise of Nerd Culture

Leave a comment

Hi hi, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted a video on this channel (life is still crazy), but I’m still here and bugging my friends to make podcasts with me. In this episode, Laura and Lance join me in a conversation about the rise of nerd culture and how things are…better? I guess. We also dive into discussions about what it means to be an American and find your identity and sexual identity during the growing pains of high school.

About an hour was cut out of this episode for the sake of time and will be released as shorter clips later. So watch out for those.

Comment below if you have any geeky stories you want to share, or tell us what it means to be an American.

Graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in English: Creative Writing. So far, this degree has helped me become a decent bartender and a professional online troll. Currently living in SoCal and trying to chase my dream of becoming a comedian since I quit both of my jobs right before the Rona hit. Great timing on my part. Sigh, story of my life.
