Now In Color

Now In Color is a weekly podcast that brings POC stories, erased from history, back to the forefront. 

Jun 4, 2019

In the season finale, Sandie is joined by notorious "troublemaker," Simon Tam, the frontman of The Slants. Over the span of almost a decade, the band fought to keep their name with the U.S. Trademark Office and finally won a historic freedom of speech case with the Supreme Court in 2017. Think trademark law doesn't apply to you? Think again! Simon not only discusses this case, but also what it was like to grow up in Southern California, bullying, grief, and his newly released memoir, Slanted. 
At the end of this episode, there is also a sneak preview of their Broadway show in development! Enjoy.
