Smooth seas do not create skilled sailors.
Joseph Magsaysay and his friend Ernest Evangelista are two Filipino Americans who grew up in and around the cities of San Francisco and Daly City, California. They both have a history of drawing, graff writing, and performing. We chop it up and talk about a whole range of topics from weed, Filipino identity, ghost stories, and fuck ups – very informal, but very fun.
Though overall very fun to record, we did run into some roadblocks. The first half is admittedly a little tangential and random, but what can you do – sometimes things aren’t perfect. I also had to cut a little out since I’m not yet the best interviewer – I had some pretty bad jokes. But overall, it was a good experience with a lot of lessons learned. And as Ernest closed it out..
Life’s about learning.
