Curiosity in Focus Podcast Archive

Curiosity in Focus is a bi-weekly podcast that dives into the personal stories of influencers and intellectuals. I'm a curious person, and I love to learn about everything the world has to offer. As a creative and educator, I find learning personally empowering. I created Curiosity in Focus to share this passion in others and to use their stories as a lens into culture and science.

Hosted & Edited by Daniel Kwan.

CiF #024 - Simu Liu

Daniel had the opportunity to chat with Canadian actor, writer, director, and stuntman Simu Liu. Simu is a Canadian Screen Award nominee best known for his role as Jung on the CBC TV sitcom Kim's Convenience. They talked about whitewashing, problematic castings in mainstream media, the broader trend of Asian erasure in pop culture, and the world of online dating.

This was an episode about creating change, finding purpose, and transforming pop culture.
