#238 - Author Chat w/ Andrew Yang

On this episode, we chat with author Andrew Yang (not the candidate) about his debut novel, I'm Not Here to Make Friends, a coming of age story about two girls who join the cast of a "Terrace House" like reality TV series that gathers six Asian Americans from across the country to live together for the cameras. Andrew shares with us his author's journey, as well as geek out a little with Reera about their favorite Terrace House moments.
