PG Podcast - Episode 24 - Jason Shen on The Asian American Man Study
February 2017 (perspective of an assistant professor)
Jason Shen (@JasonShen) is currently a product manager at Etsy and also runs Ship Your Side Project. I first learned about Jason back in 2011 when I stumbled upon his provocatively-named blog, The Art of Ass-Kicking.
In this PG Podcast, we talk about Jason's Asian American Man Study – an online survey about what it's like to live, work, and date as an Asian man in modern-day America. We discuss his motivations for embarking on this project and then dive into several notable findings, including those related to model minority stereotypes, Asian male representation in American media, and potential ripple effects on society at large.
