It's almost like Google made an image with this episode in mind!
Jeff Liu joins me to talk the much-hyped "The Joker" film, starring Joaquin Phoenix. Join us as we talk the storied comic book history of The Clown Prince of Crime, a review of the 5 most notable Jokers before Joaquin Phoenix (we love you Jared Leto~~~~~!), reasons for why this movie will lead to disappointment regardless of how great it is, and finally Jeff Liu's ideal Joker film. An incredibly fun episode that recaps over fifty years of the portrayal of this timeless character, and a Jeff Liu table read at the very end that can not be topped in this lifetime. Enjoy!

Three guys + two balls = Another new guest with some new wisdom to share!
Though originally intended to be a 2019 Miles Part 3 discussion, Michael Jin has an incredible story to share about losing 35 pounds over a year plus. Join Mike, myself, and former EWangBang contributor George Wu as we discuss the dedication it took, obstacles our lifestyles may pose to commit to that kind of weight loss, and finally a life changing experience that helped change Mike's perspective on life.
A fun experience taped in person (over drinks) in my cozy living room with two of my best childhood friends. Enjoy!

An ode to Warrior great Treveon Graham who became a casualty of the NBA hard cap.
Jsmes is back talking the NBA off-season, with this episode being a GSW focus. Hear our thoughts on Draymonds contract extension, Klays health, key additions, a good explanation of the hard cap from James, and finally a 17 million dollar reason why we should be excited for the 20-21 season. Enjoy!

Presenting the cast of Gone in 17 Seconds (in another epic microsoft paint job)!
The pod welcomes a new guest - Leeway Lan! Jeff Liu and I get to interview someone with an amazing story that tells the trials and tribulations of someone trying to making it on the big screen. After an introduction of Leeway and his early beginnings in Taiwan, hear him discuss meeting the great David Tao (26:20), a memorable project in Aura Boroughs (32:10), his role on the FX show Legion (45:50), and finally some great thoughts on Asian Americans in Hollywood (1:02:15). A great episode talking about dedication, good relationships, and (most importantly) butts/stunt butts. A fun episode of those who are interested in hearing what it's like trying to succeed in entertainment, or for those of you who just want to hear what Leeway's been up to. Enjoy!
A couple of links to Leeway's work discussed on the pod -

If I had sacrificed myself for the world, would I have done it knowing this podcast was ok in Jeff Liu's hands?
Join us as we talk "Spiderman Far from Home", as we discuss the supposedly great father/son bond between Iron Man and Spidey, and Emile Wang rant on how terrible high school comedy/romance/teen girl humor tied into this film, Mysterio's comic book backstory and movie portrayal, and finally some predictions for future MCU films (Spiderman: Homeward Bound?). Enjoy!!!

End of the season summarized in one photo.
After a month hiatus I'm back with a solo episode! A few shoutouts to start the episode (in particular The Room Escape Divas!), and we go straight into my thoughts on the series-ending Game 6, thoughts on Kerr's coaching, past use of the mid-level exception, and finally some reasons for optimism in the coming year. Consider this episode a primer for what's to come - keep your eyes out for a part 2 in depth free agency/GSW roster construct with James Liao.

We'll get this for you KD.
The Ewangbang podcast refuses to let significant events in these NBA finals slip through the cracks. James and I cover the wild game 5 finish, the play of the Splash brothers, defense on Kawhi, the Boogie Cousins roller coaster, roster construct/how we plan to find enough points in game 6, our predictions, and finally our thoughts on the KD injury. A can't miss episode as we go into the final Warrior game at Oracle Arena. Go Warriors!

Episode photo is a a hint for what's to come next time the EWangbang pod talks hoops...Let's go Phoenix Suns!
Kidding aside (maybe?), no opening music, this episode is all business. James and I talk the success of the Raptors in this NBA Finals, gripes about coaching strategies and egos (damnit Boogie), some not so good load management in game 3, and finally predictions and an impact that #35 guy can have on this series. Really hope we'll have at least one more episode talking this series. Go Dubs!

Jetlagged but was able to record before the start of the NBA Finals! Join James and I as we talk briefly on the Portland series, the effectiveness of the Raptor's D (how will they guard the pick and roll?), guard matchups, Kawhi's playmaking ability, and finally some predictions (spoiler alert, we didn't pick the same team to win).

Recorded and uploaded in a haste, so no Microsoft paint work today. Someone switch KD out for Looney in that photo.
Quick solo episode following game 2, talking the pick and roll (what else), blazers defense, and finally the odd (but effective?) Warriors rotation. Finally some predictions on how the series wraps up. Enjoy!
