Welcome to Season 2, Episode 38! We love reading and learning, so it was a treat to get a chance to have a conversation with Daryl Joji Maeda, the Dean and Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education at the University of Colorado Boulder. His latest book is Like Water: A Cultural History of Bruce Lee. It was a fascinating, well-researched book that takes a deeper look into Bruce Lee, his life, and the social conditions he faced on his way to becoming a global superstar. In our conversation, Daryl shares the importance of Asian Pacific Islander representation in leadership positions, why Bruce Lee continues to be a popular icon, how colonialist mindsets create challenges for acceptance of Asian Pacific Americans in media, and so much more. We highly recommend getting a copy of his latest book or either of his two previous books!
