In episode 132, Escape From Plan A looked at Sinophobia from the perspective of four Chinese Americans. In this episode, we look at how Sinophobia impacts non-Chinese Asians. Chris (Korean), C.S. (mixed-race Japanese/white), and Filip (Vietnamese of Chinese descent) talk about how despite not being Chinese, they still feel the full danger and hypocrisy of Sinophobia. Plus, they talk about the cruel hilarity and spiritual emptiness of modern professional life, as exemplified in The Verge’s article on the rotten culture at Away.
