Episode 8: Eat Bitter


This week, we talked with Jason Shen, a product manager at Etsy and creator of The Asian American Man Study, an annual survey which aims to capture a holistic view of the lives, experiences, and beliefs of Asian men in the United States. We chat with Jason about his inspiration to start the survey, his own experiences as an Asian American man, and how he thinks about masculinity. He also shares the 2016 results and analysis in areas such as demographics, race, religion, stereotypes, media representation and pop culture, relationships and dating, politics, and more. On Hella Asian, Jason talks about running a shoe-free household.

You can find Jason and updates on The Asian American Man Study on Twitter, and follow his work on his personal website!
