Saigoneer Podcast: Vietnamese Movies, Digital Subcultures and One Journalist's View of Vietnam

It's Monday, which means it's time for the latest Saigoneer Podcast episode.

We begin with a debate in favor of recent Vietnamese movies such as Cô Ba Sài Gòn, Em Là Bà Nội Của Anh (Miss Granny) and Em Chưa 18 (Jailbait). Local movies have made big strides in terms of production value and screenwriting in recent years, so we discuss why you should go see them over the latest Hollywood sequel.

Then we go online for a look at our favorite Vietnamese digital subcultures, including pig-related memes and humorous confession pages.

Our interview segment features Benjamin Bathke, a German journalist who recently spent three months interviewing dozes of business owners, entrepreneurs, academics and experts across Vietnam. He shares stories of a few people who symbolize Vietnam's exciting economic story.

As always, we end with Banh Mi Banter.
