APEX Express

Tonight we talk with three very special guests who are leaving their comfort zone in a music hall or soccer field to be in a cinematic theater.

Indie rock powerhouse, Thao Nguyen, has captured audiences with her intricate guitar playing, tough yet vulnerable performances, and deep lyrics. Learn what she faced as an Asian American performer in the mostly white male sphere of indie rock, why she commits her time home from tour to volunteer with the California Coalition for Women Prisoners, and what she’s doing at the San Francisco International Film Festival.

We also excited to introduce guest contributors, Harjit Sing Gill and Timmy Lu with PickedLastSports.com, a blog about sports and politics. They talk with two players from the American Samoa national soccer team who are featured in the documentary Next Goal Wins. This is about a team that was at the bottom of the FIFA world rankings and lost every competitive game they have ever played. But the players have amazing heart and you’ll meet Jaiyah Saelua, the first transgendered player to play in a FIFA match and Nicky Salapu, a goalie who is respected by his teammates.

Tonight’s show was produced by Salima Hamarani, Marie Choi, and Robynn Takayama.
