Eric Nam on the Sooo Many White Guys podcast with Phoebe Robinson

Listen on WNYC Studios, Stitcher, NPR, Apple Podcasts or Spotify

Phoebe Robinson is tired of being the token black woman in an ocean of white dude comedians. So in this podcast, Phoebe’s calling the shots. She’ll host intimate, funny and super honest conversations with musicians, actors, writers and comedians who are killing it in their fields--AND who aren’t white dudes! Stay tuned for the one token white guy (it’s only fair), and a whole lot of hijinks.

K-pop star Eric Nam talks to Phoebe about his journey from being a Korean-American kid in Atlanta to becoming an idol in South Korea and around the world.
