EP. 143 — Alan Yang

Writer/director/producer Alan Yang feels like he’s weirdly fulfilling a childhood dream-thing about being Conan O’Brien’s friend.

 

Alan sits down with Conan to discuss writing for the full span of Parks and Recreation, growing up the son of Taiwanese immigrants, and unexpectedly introducing certain catchphrases into the popular lexicon. Later, Conan peers into the inner mechanisms of TikTok fame as achieved by his assistant David Hopping.

 

Check out Alan’s new podcast Parks and Recollection here.
