Should you learn Cantonese?
Podcast: The question of learning Canto used to only apply to expats, but these days the future of the dialect is under threat. We talked about its origins, who's speaking it, how to learn it, what it means politically, and about Hong Kong's minority languages.
The reopening of Hong Kong
Podcast: The city is reopening again after almost no covid cases in 3 weeks. Find out how the situation compares to SARs, what has the 'non-lockdown' looked like and what are the crazy measures taken by businesses to stay safe, which may soon be taken on around the world.
The Storytelling Community
Podcast: The city has a killer storytelling scene, and at the heart of it is the group Hong Kong Stories. The group head honcho Rachel Smith joins us this week, who also hosts a huge podcast of the same name, and organises both the Spoken Word and HK Podcast festivals. We talked about how the scene started, what makes a good story, when people are lying, why they don't want any morals on stage and they handle people sneaking in their politics.
