Saigoneer Podcast: Covid-19 Vaccinations Begin; Vietnam's Most Controversial Dishes

Our latest episode is out now!

On this week's show, we begin (1:12) by discussing Vietnam's COVID-19 vaccination campaign, which began last week with an initial focus on medical workers. What do we think of the vaccine priority list, which places solders above the elderly, and how might vaccinations impact the country this year?

Then (16:10), we debate some of Vietnam's most controversial dishes, from hột vịt lộn and field rats to dog meat.

As always, we end with Bánh Mì Banter (28:48).
