The Hurry Up the Cakes Podcast

My name is Mikey. I made this podcast because I want to talk to people I respect and admire about things I am passionate and excited about.

Each episode is based on subject I care deeply about, featuring people I consider to be representative of these subjects in my life. Sometimes, ideally, we would end up developing the thematic truth of the subject—other times we’d probably just end up laughing at how seriously we’re taking ourselves. It’s meaningful or silly. Very ‘Hurry Up the Cakes’.

6: ‘A Guest at the Banquet’ With Bebo Bharwani The Hurry Up the Cakes Podcast

This is for the ‘unchurched’, the Christian, the seeker, the LGBTQ community, and their allies. Special guest Bebo Bharwani is the pastor of Arc: a Church of Cross and Table. He walks me through the mind and soul work he experienced to become the man I see him as: vulnerable, truthful, wise, incredibly humble, and a staunch ally of the LGBTQ community. This one hits close to home. It’s my bleediest episode yet.

6: ‘A Guest at the Banquet’ With Bebo Bharwani

It’s been a few days, but I am still reeling from this conversation. I am immensely grateful that Bebo Bharwani joins me in this week’s episode. Char had the idea of inviting Bebo to the podcast after we saw a post of his on Instagram. It was a poster with that said God’s invitation is […]

5: ‘We Hide Our Genocides Really Well’ With K Sawyer Paul

I used to host a podcast with K Sawyer Paul called ‘You Chose Poorly’. It’s one of my favorite things I’ve ever done on the internet, and it’s still linked at the top menu of this blog. Every week we would talk about our poor tech choices, and we tried to figure out whose fault […]

3 and 4: ‘Shocking the System’ With Stan Sy

On Thursday afternoon, while I was editing this week’s podcast episodes, Stan sent me a message. It was a screenshot of a Chinese-Filipino Facebook group that he railed against last month for promoting xenocentrism. Apparently this group is now advertising an event gathering “new people with different backgrounds”—a clear 180 from the tone that Stan […]

2: Celine Fabie Is a Force of Nature

“I want to talk about our dead dads more than I want to talk about Philippine Theater.” When Celine and I were trying to schedule our conversation, she immediately expressed unease with the subject I chose. With modesty befitting a goddess and a mermaid, she insisted that she didn’t much of a right to speak […]

1: ‘Accept and Build’ With David Esteban

So… I did it. And I have to admit, you guys. It’s a bit of a thrill. Dear friends, I am so very proud to launch The Hurry Up the Cakes Podcast. It is, well, exactly what I said it would be. Here’s the podcast description: My name is Mikey. I made this podcast because […]
