Hear the week that was Southeast Asia and Hong Kong in easy-listening form. From Apple to the NBA, multinationals face a reckoning as consumers revolt against their appeasing China. Venturing into Singapore’s central biz district? Better wrap more foil around your head to ward off all the rogue, telepathic hypno-scammers on the loose. Yet more drama for the man who gave up his crown to wed Miss Moscow. Teirra and Todd decompress over all things Bangkok, share cat fancies and interview a Belgian correspondent detained before he could interview someone Thailand’s government doesn’t like.

The Coconuts Podcast delivers impactful, weird, and wonderful reporting by our journalists on the ground in eight cities: Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Manila, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Yangon, and Bali. Listen to headline news and insightful interviews on matters large and small, designed for people located in – or curious about – Southeast Asia and Hong Kong.
