Saigoneer Podcast: Gender Roles in Vietnam, Public Indecency, and Human Geographer Michael Waibel

We're back with episode 26!

On this week's show, we begin (2:04) with an extended discussion on gender roles in Vietnam. From drinking sessions to driving and the kitchen, how are the roles of men and women perceived in Vietnamese society?

Then (21:38), we look at public indecency in the country following recent viral stories involving couples having public sex inside a CGV cinema and at a bubble tea shop in Thai Nguyen Province.

Our interview segment (31:40) features Dr. Michael Waibel from the Department of Human Geography at the University of Hamburg. We discussed his extensive experience in Vietnam, including the series of large photo books he has created on the growth of Saigon, Hanoi and Da Nang.

As always, we end with Banh Mi Banter (45:01).
