This week we feature socially engaged art at UC Berkeley, a “denim social club” on Central Market, and celebrate the retirement of the “Godfather of Asian American Media.”

We ignite a discussion about socially engaged art with students from UC Berkeley and one of the co-teachers of the class Socially Engaged Art and the Future of the Public University, which culminated in an action at entrance of the UC Berkeley campus.


Julian Dash, founder of Holy Stitch


We take you to Central Market where Julian Dash and his project Holy Stitch use sewing machines to transform youth from consumers into empowered producers.

And finally, we pay tribute to the “Godfather of Asian American Media” Robert Nakamura, as he retires from  33 years of teaching Asian American studies and motion picture/television at UCLA. We’ll broadcast excerpts from the discussion with his whole family at the 30th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival.

Hosted by No-No Girl and Salima.
