Saigoneer Podcast: Food Delivery Apps and Where We Think Trump and Kim Should Meet

The Saigoneer Podcast is back after taking a few weeks off!

On our first episode of 2019, we begin (1:22) by discussing food delivery platforms like GrabFood and Go-Food. What benefits do they offer to customers, drivers and restaurants, and what problems do they present?

Then (18:25) we suggest some potential locations for Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un to meet if Vietnam is selected for their second summit. Could one of the country's many cable car systems come into play? Also, which Vietnamese dishes should they eat while here?

As always, we end with Bánh Mì Banter (27:48).
