Saigoneer Podcast: U-23 Pride, Bubble Tea Madness, and the Saigon Heat

The Saigoneer Podcast is officially one month old!

As we head into the Tet break, our fourth podcast episode is available now.

This was a fun show, with our first segment covering the incredible displays of national pride which accompanied the U-23 football team's run to the final of the recent AFC U-23 Championship in China. Then, we discuss Saigon's bubble tea craze and play a game of "Bubble tea shop, or porn company?"

Our interview segment features a conversation about the Saigon Heat basketball team and the city's bid to host the 2021 SEA Games with Harry Hodge, a Saigon-based sport writer.

As always, we end with Banh Mi Banter (hint: we all had thoughts on VietJet).

Subscribe to the Saigoneer Podcast on the Apple podcast app, Stitcher or CastBox for Android, or listen to it through Soundcloud below. Leave us a review letting us know you think!

This is our last episode before Tet, and we will return in early March. Thanks for listening, and chúc mừng năm mới!
