Saigoneer Podcast: Hanoi During, After the Pandemic; Modernist Architecture With Mel Schenck Returns

The latest Saigoneer Podcast episode is now available!

On this week's show, our Urbanist Hanoi colleague shares what life in the capital was like during the peak of Vietnam's coronavirus outbreak in February and March, and how daily life has recovered over the last several weeks.

Then, architect Mel Schenck becomes our first repeat guest after his appearance on our third episode ages ago. We discuss his new book, Southern Vietnam Modernist Architecture, and how appreciation of this style has changed over the last few years.

The book is available at Fahasa and other major bookstores in Vietnam, or through Barnes & Noble overseas.

For more on the subject, join the Vietnamese Modernist Architecture Facebook group.

As always, we end with Bánh Mì Banter.
