Bangkok Podcast 57: Voranai Vanijaka II
On this episode of Bangkok Podcast, we are very happy to welcome back Bangkok Post columnist Voranai Vanijaka whose articles focus on many of the most important issues facing Thai society today – politics, class struggle, stereotypes, corruption, and more. His writing is read by many who appreciate his no-nonsense style of facing problems head on and exploring some ugly truths; coincidentally, the same reason some are not fans of his articles.
With the Thai election just around the corner, Voranai gives his view on the current landscape of Thai politics, what he thinks will happen after the election, why the election is about more than just one person, and how we all play a part in making sure Thailand moves forward instead of backward.
We are also joined by Benjamin Lord, owner and head baker at Urban Pantry, Bangkok’s best option for fans of bread – real bread. Ben started selling loaves to friends but word spread so quickly that he’s now moving his kitchen-based business into its own shophouse. He brings some of his wares into the studio for Greg and Tony to try, who nearly forget about the podcast because they’re so busy eating.
