The Q&A Episode: Happy Anniversary to Us! (2.50)

The Q&A Episode: Happy Anniversary to Us! (2.50)

It’s our anniversary, and we’re answering questions from listeners about us, the podcast, movies, wild swimming, and other fun topics. But first, an epic traffic fail... but this time, from the traffic cops? Get ready for a skinny dip, here's episode

After a brief moment of vindication on the news that 10% of Bangkok traffic police failed a test about traffic laws, we dive right into the questions from the audience. This is our one year anniversary show since the re-launch, and it’s all about you talking to us! Shaun wants to know our opinion on outdoor activities such as “wild swimming” in the seas and rivers and hiking in the forests and parks all around Thailand. Vincent is looking for some recommendation on movies from Thailand, plus has some geeky questions about the process we use to record episodes of the podcast each week. Oh! And he scoops us on a new “jungle” being built on an old swamp that’s now an airport. Gotta check that out! Dan is curious about the dining/entertainment options just across the river from us in the Silom/Surasak area, and Dylan has a tricky immigration/citizenship question, which means we need to give a serious answer?

Love, Loathe, or Leave

Matthew makes the suggestion this week, asking how we feel about getting the attention of wait staff in various restaurants around Thailand. It’s not like we’re totally ignored...just mostly. But that’s really more a cultural thing than an “ignore the big white dude and maybe he’ll go away” thing. Still, it takes some getting used to, which means we probably love it or loath it. Listen in to find out which it is!

We Love Our Supporters!

This week, we’re thanking another of our supporters and his time, Terry Blackburn has the honors. Greg found out that Terry was such an inspirational student of karate, he forever changed the sport. Curious why that fact (?) is relevant? You’ll have to listen to find out what story we have to tell. You can thank Terry and dozens of other people who help us keep the show free of annoying ads and get access to bonus content, cool swag and more by supporting us on Patreon. You should join them!
