Saigoneer Podcast: The Laughing Gas Debate and Our Favorite Sauces

The latest Saigoneer Podcast episode is out now!

On this week's show, we begin ̣(1:14) by discussing news that officials are considering adding nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to the list of banned substances. Balloons filled with laughing gas have become hugely popular on the local club circuit in recent years.

Then (12:47), we debate our favorite Vietnamese sauces and condiments, from green chili sauce and tamarind fish sauce to the incredible hot sauce at Hanoi's Pho Thin.

As always, we close with Bánh Mì Banter (30:36).
