Saigoneer Podcast: A Reckoning on Child Harassment; That Burger King Ad; & 'Startup Vietnam' Author Andrew Rowan

We're back from a two-week break!

On this episode, we begin (1:20) with a discussion about sexual harassment of children in Vietnam following a recent incident in which a middle-aged man molested a girl on an elevator in a Saigon apartment complex.

Then (14:39), we discuss that Burger King New Zealand ad (you know the one), as well as recent food articles involving jackfruit and kaya toast which highlight the problematic ways in which western writers and media outlets sometimes cover Asian cuisine.

Our interview guest (28:46) is Andrew Rowan, the author of Startup Vietnam: Innovation & Entrepreneurship in the Socialist Republic. Andrew joined us from New York to talk about his experience working in the startup sector here, and advice for anyone looking to do the same.

As always, we close with Bánh Mì Banter (50:06).
