Injecting Coconut Oil Is Cuckoo Nuts [Exclusive Track #17]

2017-11-11T22:54:49+00:00

The unplanned topic on the show today is just that: haircuts for men in Bangkok. Hipster men, apparently, because there are all sort of high-end barbers cropping up all over town. Even in our neighborhood, which is a very Thai place. But while they certainly do attract plenty of Western customers, the vast majority of their clients seem to be Thai nationals. So it’s not just crazy people like Evo who spend 10x what “classic” street shops charge for a quick tim. Then again, it’s not quick at all, taking around an hour for the complete process. Because beauty like that takes time to get just right. (Gee. I wonder who wrote the show notes?)

After that, it’s a thoughtful conversation about how a good number of foreigners make their income in Thailand. And by thoughtful, we mean a general bitch-fest with colorful language. Good thing this is just for patrons and we don’t have to bleep all of them out.

Speaking of dumb things, what’s up with these idiots injecting coconut oil into their junk? Please tell us this if fake news that’s just being recycled. Because that’s not the direction things are supposed to flow from down there, right? Listener discretion is advised. (And no, we’re not linking to the article. But the language gets even more “colorful” for this bit.)

    Just discovered BKK podcast and I’ve listened to a lot of podcasts in a short space of time. Personally, l much prefer the more layed back but in-depth style of the original series.

    However, the interviews Greg does in the current series, like the one, for example, with Stu Jay Raj are excellent. Greg is a great interviewer; he doesn’t speak too much and asks interesting questions to get the most from the guests. More shows where Greg interviews interesting people please.

      Thanks Eric. Well, you can’t please everyone. Many felt our old shows were too long, many feel the new ones are too short, but we like it how it is. Modern realities of social media, podcasting technology, limitations on time, and our new Patreon obligations mean we need to be a bit more structured. But thanks for the kind words on the interviews, keep listening for some more interesting ones coming up!
