Bangkok Podcast Episode 1: Best Source of Thai News

In the first edition of our weekly podcast, we discuss the major issue at the moment – the ongoing redshirt protests and the continuing efforts by the military to end them. We also touch on the causes of the conflict, and then discuss what we think are some great resources for keeping on top of new developments in one of the biggest crises to hit Thailand in a very long time.

Note: While we do mention that many parts of Bangkok remain unaffected by the conflict, we are not saying Bangkok is completely safe place. The situation is tense, deadly, and is changing by the minute. It will likely get worse before it gets better – but we do believe it will get better.
