Speaking about channelAPA at the betterasianman podcast session.
The boys and I had a radio interview scheduled with William Lee, better known as Better Asian Man.  While we were interviewing him for channelAPA, he offered his insights on how Asian American men can break stereotypes from changing their mindset to gaining confidence. His podcasts feature prominent individuals who shape our community and provide an inspiration and a source of pride for Asian Americans everywhere. Hear some of what he has to say. We also managed to get into a discussion of many assorted topics: such as confidence issues, channelAPA issues, and also introspection.

I had to make it back to the New Yorker to schedule a meetup with Deep Foundation. We learned more about the meaning behind their name and get into their music. Not only do they have pride for the New York area, but they also celebrate their Filipino heritage. Be sure to check out their music videos Children of the Sun and Sleep. (Lots of positive comments about Choz Belen.) Learn about their upcoming projects with Hydroponikz, Generation Ill, Bambu, Legaci, and more.

Support Deep Foundation by copping their album First Draft. Peep their website here. It’s all organic! Shout out to the guys for finally hooking me up with director Choz Belen!

We had a lot of fun with those guys, but we had to head back to the place to interview the lovely singer-songwriter Alfa Garcia. She was able to tell us about her music background and her music influences. She keeps it real with her pop rock folk vibe. It was a blast getting to know her a lot better, and I think we were able to get a lot of information from her just about everything. After graduating college, she worked on her first album. Check out her debut album Second Skin on Alfa - Second Skin and Amazon.

All in all, it was a productive Sunday.
