Greg interviews ‘Bangkok Pat,’ whose videos on Bangkok’s historical secrets uncover the hidden layers of this fascinating city. Pat begins with a bit of personal background, growing up in the UK with a Thai mother, and eventually losing touch with that part of his history. Undeterred,in his early twenties, he made the move to Thailand to re-discover his lost roots. 

The guys discuss Pat’s early days as a DJ in Bangkok’s club scene, before getting into the issue of how to survive in Bangkok as a new foreigner (especially when getting bad advice from other foreigners). Next, Greg inquires about Pat’s interest in history and how he got into making videos about Bangkok. A history lover since childhood, he developed a curiosity for different Bangkok neighborhoods, and due to Covid, felt an online approach would be most suitable. Due to a few lucky shares, even his earliest videos developed a following. 

The boys continue with a deep dive into a few of Pat’s most successful videos, and they trade advice on the best research strategies, and what makes Bangkok such a great city to get lost in.
