DIU Pod returns for season 4 for the first episode of 2021. The gang discusses the identity of Via Getty and Trump getting de-platformed from everything. We also talk about new projects including the Asian Movie Club podcast and the DIU Game Nights on Twitch.
Jack becomes increasingly jealous in light of Gavin’s ever-growing influence and amount of guest features. We learn that an invitation was extended to Jack to be on Asian Movie Club, but Jack abruptly turned down the offer because the show wasn’t “lit” enough. He then goes on the big-time the team by saying he is the true talent of the show and just wants to be loved.
We then talk about the recent controversy surrounding the Mahjong Line, a Dallas-based company that attempted to redesign the traditional mahjong tiles. We talk about how their approach was disrespectful to the traditional game. Traditions and cultures can be re-designed, but it should come from a genuine interest and understanding. Let us know what you think about the whole story!
Afterwards, the Cantonese Ambassador teaches us some common Cantonese words for playing Mahjong. We also talk about the environment and attitudes around the traditional game. Follow along with the lesson by clicking here.
