The Sympathizer

On this episode, we check out the new HBO series THE SYMPATHIZER, the prestige TV adaptation of Viet Thanh Nguyen's Pulitzer Prize winning novel about a North Vietnamese spy embedded in the South Vietnamese secret police, who is tasked with keeping tabs on his colleagues as they settle in America as refugees after the fall of Saigon. Along the way, he has to deal with microaggressions from all sides as he tries to reconcile his own identity as a spy, friend, and sometimes Hollywood consultant.
