My Thoughts: Randall Park didn’t stick around this episode too long, at which point it turned into an Eddie Huang podcast. I get a David Choe vibe from this guy, probably because he’s Asian and doesn’t act like you’d expect a stereotypical Asian to act. I’m sure you could interpret that as being vaguely racist but that’s not my intention.
