Aron Bender hangs out with Julie Chang, a TV journalist most recently with Fox 11 here in Los Angeles but she also spent a lot of time working in New York. She’s a wife, a mother of two adorable little ones, an activist, an actress, and a brain tumor survivor. She’s also the founder of 940 Life, which she explains in this quick conversation that we had to squeeze into an afternoon a few weeks ago is about the 940 weekends we have with our children from the time they're born to when they turn 18. Julie and I talked about the crimes targeting the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, how she talks with (and learns from) her kids about racism, sliding into her now-husband's DMs, and how my late wife nudged her to say yes to coming on the podcast to begin with. Thank you for your time, Julie. Means the world!

Aron Bender talks with "The Badass Lawyer" Emily D. Baker. She traded the courtroom for the creator studio, and now has one of the more popular legal commentary channels on YouTube. We talk about moving from Southern California to Tennessee in the middle of the pandemic, grappling with identity when your career is taken away and how her family has grown from it, how she picks the cases she covers and how her channel gained 55,000 subscribers in a month, and we get her thoughts on Los Angeles County's new District Attorney George Gascón.
