006 - The Model Minorities - Michael Tow (Lucky Grandma)

5/20/2020
We sit down with 4th generation Chinese-American, Actor, Producer, Director and social-justice warrior, Michael Tow. Due to the Pandemic and that we are on different coasts, we leveraged the power of the internet for this podcast. It was interesting to learn that he grew-up in Boston, MA, the oldest of 3. He always loved acting from a very young age and in his previous life he was a Financial Planner. But that acting bug was too strong and never left his bones. He saw an opportunity and took...

DJ Havik is as real as it gets. He is an OG Cerritos head, I personally do not know another DJ more in love with his craft than DJ Havik. I first met him in high school and from day one he was all about the turntables. Two Technique 1200's, a mixer (Newmark) and a mic. We dive into the love of music and where he stands on DJing today. We talk about our house party days when he was affiliated with Moden Musique, his Prestige Sounds days and do a deep dive into the scene and how he hooked up...

We sit down with Rick Tonthat. He's Vietnamese-American. One of my oldest, funniest and dearest friends joins us in the studio to shine a bright light on his family's journey.

002 - The Model Minorities - Gary Kubo

4/10/2020
Gary, is extremely positive and knowledgeable. What an impressive dude. As a child growing up in Rosemead, CA he first started skating at 12 years old. After being sponsored by Vision Street Wear, he went on to street racing. The street racing scene in Southern California was exploding. All the illegal street racing for pink slips and high dollars were happening in the more industrial areas of Ontario, City of Industry and Long Beach. He was in the thick of it. Then he went Pro!!! We have a...
