Saigoneer Podcast: The Gender, Generational Divides of Saigon's Civic Spaces

Episode 87 is ready for your ears!

On this week's single-topic show, we look (1:11) at how people of different genders and generations utilize different businesses and spaces in Saigon for civic life or to just hang out with friends.

From open-front cafes dominated by men to convenience stores and road-side tea shops popular with groups of gender-diverse youths, what do the city's spaces say about who visits them? And would floating cafes make any sense?

As always, we end with Bánh Mỉ Banter (23:38).
