Continuing our regional focus of late, Greg and Ed discuss Ed’s recent trip to Hong Kong and how it compares to big, bad Bangkok. Ed begins with a big caveat: he’s not really much of a traveler, and he spent only 2 ½ days in Hong Kong, so his take is that of a true noob. That being said, Ed begins on the positive side, noting how geographically bea…

In a possible new series, Greg and Ed discuss things that have become less important or meaningful since they began living in Thailand. In short, stuff that we used to value a lot that just seems not to matter as much anymore. Ed begins with the somewhat obvious: clothes in general just matter a lot less. Never a fashion guy, Bangkok’s ‘uni-season’…

Greg interviews Mike Tatarski of the Vietnam Weekly podcast. Mike begins by explaining the podcast originated out of his Substack newsletter of the same name.

Greg and Ed revisit the 2006 coup in Thailand and reminisce about the oddness but also impactfulness of the experience.

Greg interviews Clif from BangkokBeerGuide.com about the ever evolving craft beer scene in Thailand.

Greg and Ed try a new type of show in which they troll their memories for extreme experiences, something that expats in Thailand seem to have a lot of.

Greg interviews Dr. Soraj Hongladarom on the intersection of AI, ethics, and Buddhism.

If math can be used to solve everything from the orbits of galaxies to the swirl in a snail’s shell, then surely it can be applied to Bangkok to shed some light on the chaos?

Greg and Ed interview their old friend Stuart of Travelfish, master of all things travel and tourism in Southeast Asia.
