Saigoneer Podcast: Nhậu Culture, Street Food Update and an Anthropological Conversation

We've reached episode 30!

On this week's show, we begin (1:24) with a look at nhậu culture in Vietnam. What does this age-old drinking tradition tell us about masculinity and gender in the country?

Then (13:00), we provide one of our periodic updates on recent street food and cafe finds, including an unexpected Greek spot on Hoang Sa Street and a roti cart near Ben Thanh Market.

Our interview guest (21:47) is Hang Tran, who goes by Sam. She's a Hanoi native now living in Saigon and working on pursuing a PhD in anthropology. We talked about why she likes having in-depth conversations with people, as well as her efforts to create her own radio program.

As always, we end with Banh Mi Banter (43:32). This one includes a special dispatch from 'the field' by Paul.
