Welcome to Bangkok Podcast
Bangkok is a city that’s at the leading edge of Asia yet still somehow stuck in the past. It’s a place of contrasts: ancient temples neighbour internet cafes, luxury automobiles compete for space with tuk-tuk’s and sprawling air conditioned shopping malls sell everything from Lanna antiques to the latest high fashion clothing. From the stinky khlong taxis to the thumping nightclubs to the ridiculous amount of food on every street corner, we revel in living here.
Join Anthony and Greg every week as they discuss all the funny, serious, enjoyable, and just plain strange aspects of living in the Big Mango.
Anthony Joh has been an entrepreneur since his first gig selling newspapers at the age of 9. After living in the US and Japan he settled into Canada and opened a chain of auto detailing shops. After a decade of work he had enough and took off to Europe to indulge in his passion of classic European cars. Deciding that going back to Canada and starting another small business was not exciting Anthony moved to Bangkok and started Thai-FAQ where he documents life as an expat in this crazy city.
Greg Jorgensen grew up sandwiched between wheat fields and mountains in a wee town with a funny name in mid-western Canada. After working in the film industry, as a stand-up comedian, and an office peon, he came to Thailand in 2001 for what was supposed to be four months of sun and fun, and promptly forgot to leave. In the years since, he has worked as a teacher, a tour guide, a business consultant, a voice-over artist, actor, and writer. When he’s not writing or podcasting, Greg likes exploring Bangkok’s winding alleys and hidden corners on foot and bicycle with his equally curious friends.
