After kicking off their NPR podcast venture with Dave Chappelle in mid-July, hip-hop radio legends Stretch and Bobbito return with Eddie Huang as their guest. The “Human Panda” as some endearingly call him, talks about how sneakers are a symbol of the American Dream, how he hates Jordans, food and its relevance to cultural identity, his connection to hip-hop/rap music, and the struggle of Asian Americans. As a best-selling author for Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir, chef, restaurateur, hip-hop connoisseur, avid music fan, cultural icon and attorney (yes, he passed the bar), Eddie goes even deeper into what you think you might know about him.
