This week, Youngmi talks to Jes Tom (comedian, writer for Our Flag Means Death on Max) about a seemingly small issue he had in his last relationship, not being posted on main. Jes and Youngmi talk about how small problems in romantic relationships result in us feeling large emotions and how maybe our emotional reactions are indicative of larger important issues. Jes also discusses how it feels as a fifth-generation Japanese American and third-generation Chinese American in reference to his identity as an American and an Asian person.
