#sorryasianparents EP16 – The Nickel Arcade and Being Hoodrats in Visalia

Leave a comment

Hi hi, sorry for the long hiatus, but I’ve been gone on a holiday in Ireland. I should have some videos about that coming out soon. But here is a recording where Will and Erick joined me in a conversation about growing up in Visalia as nerdy hoodrats. We talk about what it was like in a multicultural community, racism, economic disparity, being nerds, finding anime, and being hoodrats running around the ghettos of the Central Valley.

If you have your own stories about growing up in Visalia or being a nerdy hoodrat, comment down below!

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.
