  • Portland musician and TED Talk speaker Simon Tam tells us why the US Patent and Trademark Office will not allow him to trademark his band's name, "The Slants" and how he's responding.
  • Pulitzer Prize winner, Alex Tizon, explores and punctures stereotypes of the Asian-American male identity in his book, "Big Little Man: In Search of My Asian Self".
