Jess is stuck in the wilds of eastern Oregon, so Andrew helms the ship for an incredibly inspiring conversation with Joon Lee. Joon is a 24 year old Korean-American sportswriter for ESPN, and he takes us on a wild journey through his time at Bleacher Report, the representation inception that happened when he covered Chloe Kim and the Olympics in South Korea, and why pornstars are people too. Plus - our producer Emily Ho makes a special guest appearance!
Cool stuff we talk about in the episode:
Who doesn’t want free advice from people that are wildly successful and probably more good looking than we are? In most careers, mentorship is a built-in part of the process, but as theatre people, Andrew (Hamilton) and Jess (Broadway Unlocked) always wished they had more opportunity and acess. Which is exactly why each week they’re taking you to coffee with some of the most incredible folx they can find, from Broadway to TV to YouTube to Sports to Historians to Entrepreneurship. We set up the coffee date and you become a part of the podcast as our guests answer your most burning questions. All without anyone having to leave the comfort of the internet (or put pants on tbh).
If you’re like us, and wish you had more access to smart, funny people who can help inspire you, this is your podcast! Anything goes on TM2C, so buckle up and leave us a VideoAsk to be a guest on the show and be mentored on air.
Oh! And come hang out with us on the internets!
