Saigoneer Podcast: The Evolution of Pets in Vietnam; the Significance of 'Ghost Month'

We're back with a new episode!

On this week's show, we begin (1:07) by discussing how the concept and role of pets is evolving as Vietnam becomes increasingly wealthy. More people are buying expensive breeds of cats and dogs, but cities like Saigon have introduced stricter pet regulations, while many new apartment complexes don't allow pets.

Then (17:15), we dive into 'Ghost Month' and the traditions that come with it, such as not making big purchases or life decisions in order to avoid bad luck.

As always, we end with Bánh Mì Banter (32:11).
