No Escape (Feat. May Ngo)

You ever think you're about to see one movie, and end up watching something completely different and somehow worse? Cameron and Jordan definitely thought they were about to watch 2012's The Impossible, that takes the tragic 2004 Tsunami in Thailand and focuses on a white family on vacation. But 2015's No Escape is a different kind of disaster. 

The wonderful May Ngo (founder of the Prague writers workshop) joins us to break down this bizarre Owen Wilson family...action...dramedy? Like, he throws his kids off a roof, but then also does a back and forth bit with them right after? 

Anyways, we break down why they can't even tell you what country they're in, the practicality of having a huge sign that simply says "Thailand" on your bridge, and May gives some fantastic insights into what are the likely real life inspirations for this movie. 

May is great, simple as that! Follow May at @Mayngo2 on Twitter, check out her website at and sign up for her Substack! Also, she's working on a crime novel which sounds awesome, we'll keep you updated on that for sure!

You can always find us at @white_pod on Twitter and at 

We hope Black History Month has been kind so far despite all the nonsense going on. We'll be back next week with Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo with the good folks at Queue Points Podcast.
