Greg Jorgensen and Ed Knuth have been knocking around Bangkok since the turn of the century. Exploring dark corners, eating amazing food, and interacting with fascinating people, the two have gotten to know and love Thailand's capital in all its confusing, mysterious glory.
Every week they chat about topics near and dear to those living here, those visiting here, or those who are just curious about what it's like to live in Asia's craziest city.
We are joined by Khun Chin from Chili Paste Food Tours to talk about how she finds the best food for her customers, pivoting in a pandemic, and the difficulties in making customized menus for fussy customers.
If you live overseas, you’ve probably had a friend or acquaintance back home try to exploit your expat-ness by asking you for a favor or sending you questions. These range from easy to bizarre to annoyingly dumb. Greg and Ed discuss some of the most common ones.
We sit down with Canadian ambassador @sarahjhtaylor to discuss how she moved from archaeology to diplomacy, if soft power works in the 21st century, and why maple syrup is so heckin’ expensive in Thailand.
