Saigoneer Podcast: Our Favorite Vietnamese Poems; Perceptions of Foreign Cuisine

A new week means a new Saigoneer Podcast episode!

On this week’s show, we devote our extended first segment (2:14) to poetry. We each read a favorite poem by a writer of Vietnamese descent and then discuss it while looking into its context, as well as the pleasures and pitfalls of translation.

Then (35:26), we talk about a recent study which ranked the popularity of different global cuisines. We debate what may have led to Vietnam landing in the 13th spot, and then examine how other cuisines are received here.

As always, we end with Bánh Mì Banter (47:50).
