Southern Fried Asian Podcast (Hard NOC Media) was recently featured in Vanity Fair
“With the recent release of Minari, Lee Isaac Chung’s Oscar-nominated film about a Korean family living on a farm in Arkansas, the specific experiences of Asian Americans living in the rural South have become more visible. But when Keith Chow launched his show Southern Fried Asian in 2017, this representation was almost nowhere to be found. As Chow noted, most stories about Asian Americans usually took place on the coasts—New York, Southern California, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Over the past five years, Chow has chatted with a wide range of guests who identify as AAPI and grew up in a southern state, including journalist Jia Tolentino, actress Eva Noblezada (Hadestown, Yellow Rose), author Jenny Han (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before), and Vanity Fair’s own Sonia Saraiya. As host, Chow is both an incisive interviewer and chummy conversationalist, just as eager to unpack the unexpected twists and turns of his guests’ careers as he is to discuss their favorite hometown doughnut spot. And on this podcast, both topics are equally important and valid ways of mapping identity.”
