Dan, James and Laura meet with LA Native, DVDASA podcast guest, performer, writer, transporter...Bill Poon!
DVDASA one of the inspirations that led James to podcast.
Bill Poon was a frequent DVDASA guest.
Growing up as a son of a Chinese restaurant owner.
Dan and Bill relate to similar childhoods and hanging out in Chinatown during different eras.
Laura's immigrant experience is different due to the fact that she looks white.
We delve into Bill's dating life, both past and present.
Laura attracts men who view her as a Zooey Deschanel, manic pixie dream girl type and they lose interest when they realize she's more complicated than that.

Dan bails on the podcast.
James questions whether certain lies are better than the truth for his future kids, i.e. the Santa Claus dilemma.
