We welcome back Christian Felix aka Mr. Cardigan to the show. Shonali & Christian discuss their preparations for the holiday season and seeing friends vs family over the holidays.
Our first guest (00:08:45) is comedian & filmmaker Kenice Mobley. Kenice is from North Carolina and came to NYC via Los Angeles and Boston MA. Kenice has only been in NYC for the past 2 1/2 years and she has already made a big impact on the NYC comedy scene. Kenice tells us about a time when she received a "high volume" of Richard pics from men. Find out how she dealt with them. Kenice has a podcast called Love About Town w co-host Rohan Padhye discussing love, sex & relationships. Christian and Shonali lobby to be on her show.
Our second guest (00:26:50) is actress Angelline Chung who also happens to be a Julliard graduate thanks to her parents in Singapore. Angelline hails from Singapore and was on a television show there called Shall We Talk? Her dream role is one which would deal with issues of mental health. Angelline discusses how although Hollywood is doing it's best, it still needs to do more regarding inclusivity and white washing Asian culture. Angelline educates us as to exactly what "yellow fever" is. She explains how this mindset and behavior is detrimental to everyone involved especially Asian women.
We #GetItOffYour Chest (00:59:03) with former Ep. 21 WDEK guest, Pete Miser. Christian and Pete have a heated conversation regarding chicken vs turkey for Thanksgiving. Shonali is the Judge Judy of this debate. Also don't loudly restate your partner's name over and over in a condescending way on a flight so that the entire flight feels bad for your partner.
Our final guest (00:59:03) is cinematographer, filmmaker and photographer Hope Hall. She is currently Senior Road Videographer for Senator Elizabeth Warren 2020 Campaign. She was President Obama's Principal Videographer in the White House. Hope is one of the most positive people we have had on the show. Yes, her name is fitting. We ask Hope what makes working for Senator Warren so special. We discuss Hope's unusual career transition into filmmaking and photography. We share (1:35:21) some of Hope's helpful tips on mindfulness and getting through the tough times. We are lobbying her to have a weekend seminar on these tips so we can all be as powerful a force as she is.
Another year winds down for We Don't Even Know. We wish you the peace and joy during this holiday season and we will be back next year, for our live taping on January 28, 2020.
