Rice & Spam


Voted Periscopeʻs Favorite Duo

( Voted by Us )

 

Who are rice & spam?

Sheʻs Asian and loves Rice. Heʻs Hawaiian and loves Spam. Together, they are Rice & Spam. We often find the humor in a great many things, because of that we decided to start logging the fun we have on the internet, and you can share in the fun too. We started out by just enjoying our friendship and the many great experiences we came across. Often times wishing we could have documented our fun with a camera. The next step in the evolution, well Periscope, and live streaming. You can catch our shenanigans on Periscope by following us @RiceAndSpam, or by our own individual accounts, @GoRiceGirl and @SliceOfSpam, on periscope and other socials sites like Twitter, Instagram to name a couple.

Being Best Friends


Every person has a friend that pushes you and keeps you accountable, these two have each other.

 

Being Best Friends


Every person has a friend that pushes you and keeps you accountable, these two have each other.

 

We have been asked on many occasions how we met and started out, as well as the meaning behind the name. We met through a mutual friend. Joanne worked at Dreamworks, yes the same Dreamworks that made the movies Shrek and Kung Fu Panda. Because of that mutual friend we had a larger group of friends. We all had similar interests, foodies, hobbies etc. Over time though, as with most people, lives beckon and the group became just the two of them. They learned they like more than just food and hanging out. Naturally they just kept hanging out. They discovered they were tech geeks and it was a common passion.

The name Rice & Spam, was born out of a quiet test social account that was meant to gain more camera presence and confidence between the both of them. As time progressed they learned to start recording video of their antics and started posting these videos to YouTube. The name however, was something that actually started out as "Spam and Rice". Heʻs half Hawaiian, and in Hawaii, they love Spam. Sheʻs Asian, and Asianʻs eat a lot of Rice. The main reason why itʻs Rice and Spam now is because the domain at that time was taken, but Rice and Spam was not. So BOOM, Rice and Spam was born. 

Rice and Spam took form about 5 years ago, 2013. One of their first recorded videos was Spam talking about the 100 carb a day lifestyle, To not consume more than 100 carbs per day. It was really just subject matter, but it was the start that we needed to keep going. Rice on the other hand had always been a photo and video phile. So this was natural to her. 

In early 2015 Spam read an article about up coming tech trends and saw an app called Periscope, he didnʻt know much about it, but downloaded the app, messed with it but never deleted the app from his phone. Rice, later used Spamʻs phone and discovered the app, and started using the app, and in that instant people started flooding into the channel and Rice and Spamʻs presence was born. Periscope hasnʻt been the same since. 

Now you can see Rice and Spam ʻscopingʻ late-night mainly, and at different times during the day. Their topics range anywhere from silliness to serious, to helpful to ranting to mindset awareness to straight goofiness. Theyʻre also featured hosts on @ParachuteTV1 as they take over late night on Wednesday @11:30pm PST.

Joanne has also created the largest Periscope community for women BY women, called @PeriGirls. You can find them on periscope and on Facebook. Kama likewise has created a menʻs group called @PeriDudes, and you can also find that community on Facebook.
