The Monkey King

On this episode, we check out the new Netflix animated adventure film The Monkey King, following the origin story of one of the most famous figures in Chinese folklore, and featuring a star studded cast including Jimmy O. Yang and Bowen Yang. Will this adaptation of a beloved (and often overlooked in the west) classic make the grade as good pop?

Listen to Inheriting from LAist & NPR

"Inheriting" is a show about Asian American and Pacific Islander families, which explores how one event in history can ripple through generations. In doing so, the show seeks to break apart the AAPI monolith and tell a fuller story of these communities. In each episode, NPR’s Emily Kwong sits down with one family and facilitates deeply emotional conversations between their loved ones, exploring how their most personal, private moments are an integral part of history. Through these stories, we show how the past is personal and how to live with the legacies we’re constantly inheriting. New episodes premiere every Thursday.
