Saigoneer Podcast: Grab & Uber, Indie Music and Modernist Architecture

The third episode of the Saigoneer Podcast is available now!

Our latest show features conversations on how Grab and Uber have revolutionized the way Saigoneers get around, in addition to the regulatory challenges these disruptive companies pose. Then, we fawn over Vietnam's up-and-coming indie bands, including Cá Hồi Hoang, Ngọt, Những Đứa Trẻ and Gảc Mải.   

Mel Schenck, a co-founder of the excellent Vietnamese Modernist Architecture Facebook group and an architect with years of experience in Vietnam, joins us to talk about why this style became so ingrained in southern Vietnam during the 20th century.

He also discusses a few of his favorite modernist buildings around Saigon so that listeners can check them out, including 12 Vo Van Kiet, 9 Nguyen Cong Tru and 89 Ly Tu Trong in District 1; Thong Nhat Hospital in Tan Binh District; 31 Ngo Thoi Nghiem in District 3; and 140 Nguyen Van Troi in Phu Nhuan District.

Finally, we close with Banh Mi Banter.
