    Episode 442 - Atlantis Dire Warning

    I'm a fan of CBB, but Ming ruined this week's episode for me. My wife's family immigrated to the United States from Vietnam, and I had to turn off this episode because I didn't want her to hear it while I was getting ready for work in the morning. I knew it would make her upset because Ming's accent is clearly making fun of the way her family speaks English. Her family came to the United States as refugees, and worked really hard to rebuild their lives from nothing. It's not easy to learn a new language, and most of my wife's family speaks three or four languages. That these (probably monolingual) white guys are making fun of people like her family because their accents aren't flawless is inconsiderate. I don't think that Jeremy Rowley or Scott or anyone involved in the podcast was intentionally being racist. I also know that at a surface level, it's amusing when people talk in an unusual way. But for the people you're making fun of, there's a ton of identity issues that can make it a sensitive topic. Anyway, Heynongman, love the podcast. Cheers.
