If Angry Asian Man had become a professor rather than a blogger, his career might have looked a lot like Dr. Nancy Wang Yuen's. Nancy spent years having candid conversations with actors, directors, talent agents and others in the industry. Her research led to her book, "Reel Inequality: Hollywood Actors and Racism." In our wide ranging conversation, she shares her insights about Hollywood, race, structural inequality, and overcoming stereotypes. We also talk Oscars, the first movie Nancy watched (think Cher), and as a self-identified "pop culture geek," her geekiest pop culture interest.
Thank you Nancy for your entertaining book and discussion!
