Saigoneer Podcast: The War on Plastic and Our Vietnam Superpowers

The latest Saigoneer Podcast episode is out now!

On this week's show, we begin ̣(1:06) by discussing Vietnam's new national campaign against plastic waste. Such garbage is a massive problem here, so what do we hope to see from this effort, and what sort of impact have small-scale anti-plastic movements had?

Then (20:07), on a lighter note, we share what our Vietnam-related superpowers would be. Punching through the red tape holding back metro projects? Kicking internet cable-munching sharks in the face? Snapping half of all traffic out of existence? Listen to find out!

As always, we close (34:36) with Bánh Mì Banter (and a special email offer from Paul).
