APEX Express

As technology develops and brings us virtual worlds, Instagram photography, and mass production, what has happened to the makers of our world? The crafts people who use their hands to make unique and personalized items? Tonight we bring you three pieces featuring Asian Americans who are part of a growing DIY, or do-it-yourself, culture.

First, an interview with Paula Chang and Mike Cheung, the couple behind Tinkering Monkey, a practical woodworking shop in Oakland.

Then, we visit a winter craft make-a-thon organized by Liberating Ourselves 
bubblefarmLocally
, a people of color – led makerspace in Oakland.

And to close, Jean Chen joins us in studio to talk about Bubble Farm Soap Company, a small business she runs with her husband Chris.

With Host No-No Girl.
