Bangkok Podcast 71: Encore
Welcome back to Bangkok Podcast!
Since Tony had to come through the ‘Kok again, we thought we’d dust off the old equipment and record a quick reunion show! On this episode, we’re joined by past guest Hamish Chalmers, who tells us his amazing story about escaping the recent floods that devastated central Thailand. Hamish went to bed one night, and woke up the next morning in the middle of a lake. He tells us about his flight to dry land, and how not fun it was wading through waist-high pitch-black water in his pitch-black neighborhood with his wife, baby daughter, and dog in tow. It was anything but safe – and that’s before you factor in the crocodiles and snakes that were floating around.
We are also joined by Michael Biedassek from Bangkok Vanguards, a community of like-minded young guys who want to create a real community around Bangkok that involves charity, exploration, and making friends around the world. Michael tells of their recent program ‘Wipe the Tide’ which saw over 2 million baht raised for flood relief.
