Ep206: Fu Tien-Yu's Fertile Imagination

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast brings you a delightful conversation about an even more delightful film, My Egg Boy! Writer/director Fu Tien-Yu is visiting Chicago this week from Taiwan for the U.S. premiere of her brain-tickling, heart-tugging rom-com/fantasy.

Ian sat down with Fu Tien-Yu to talk about her creative process, the very personal issues that compelled her to make the movie, and how one of Taiwan's biggest director's helped her in life and on the film.

If you're in Chicago, you won't want to miss My Egg Boy's big night tomorrow, when Fu Tien-Yu comes to the AMC River East for a one-time-only screening and Q&A, as part of Asian Pop-Up Cinema's blockbuster fourth season. For tickets and more information, check out

Also, Ian recommends Pat "The Uber Critic" McDonald's written interview on with the filmmaker (which is just as distinct and enjoyable as this audio conversation), and shares some info about the translators who helped make this episode possible.

Episode 206 will scramble your soul and leave you with a sunny(side) disposition!
