Episode 8: Storytelling, Imagination and Accountability   
Airing: December 16th, 2015

Mimi was a Lyft driver for two weeks before she realized her bladder was too small for the job. She remembers the first time she “drew” genitalia on AOL instant messenger. Now, she only wants to communicate via taco and unicorn Emojis. A few years ago, Mimi wrote essays about online Asian pornography and her most recurring thought was, “Nobody knows what to do with awkward hands.” Feel free to start an Emoji conversation with Mimi on Twitter @Mimi_Dumpling.
