    #80 - What‘s the deal with comedians and depression? With psychotherapist Tim Hoffman

    "All comedians are depressed", "Good comedy has to come from a dark place", "tragedy+time=comedy" are among some of the most common phrases you hear thrown around in the comedy world, but are any of them actually true? And why does it seem to be a pretty common narrative in the comedy world?


    We ask our guest: psychotherapist and one of Hong Kong's top mental health counselors, Tim Hoffman.

    #79 - How a friendly chat with HK‘s most wanted man led to his arrest with ”Tracy”

    #79 - How a friendly chat with HK‘s most wanted man led to his arrest with ”Tracy”

    At nearly 5am on Tuesday October 12, 2021 a taxi carrying a foreign passenger drove along Queen’s Road West and the 50-year-old taxi driver in the vehicle was suspected of arguing with the passenger for some reason. The foreign passenger then used a hard object to hit the neck of the driver which resulted in injuries. In order to escape, he got off the car and fled.


    The passenger then got off the vehicle and continued to attack the taxi driver before he finally collapsed. When the taxi driver was about 20 meters away, the assailant also took the opportunity to escape. Afterwards, a passer-by called the police for help.


    Police officers sped to the scene and found the 48-year-old man lying unconscious on the floor. Sustaining serious injury to his neck, he was rushed to Queen Mary Hospital and was certified dead at 6.17am.









    The police released a recent photo of the suspect Wednesday the 13th of October. On Wednesday afternoon, our guest Tracy* ran into the suspect outside a small store on Lamma island, not having any idea who he was. She had a friendly chat and shared a beer with him. It's quite a baffling story. Strap in for this one. 


     


    *Tracy's voice has been changed to protect her identity.

    #78 - From bean to bar with Conspiracy Chocolate founders Celine Herren and Amit Oz

    Conspiracy Chocolate makes high quality small batch craft chocolate from bean to bar. They use cacao beans from a single farm in Vietnam and process slowly and manually over 5 days to retain the natural health benefits and flavor of the cacao.


    We chat with its founders Celine Herren and Amit Oz. They are a Swiss and Israeli couple who met in Hong Kong with a passion for creating food and discovering new combinations of flavors. After a few months of learning and refining the process in their kitchen in Sai Ying Pun, Conspiracy Chocolate, a small-batch bean-to-bar craft chocolate company was born. They now craft their chocolate in their own licensed chocolate lab in Wong Chuk Hang.

    #76 - Vivek Before Comedy!

    #76 - Vivek Before Comedy!

    We take a break from having guests on this week and we fly solo. The original idea was for us to talk about what our lives were like B.C. (Before Comedy). We started with Vivek and boy did he have a lot to say. Vivek has had a pretty wild journey even before ever doing standup. In fact he has had so much happen that we didn't have time to share Mohammed's B.C. stories, we will definitely get into that on a later episode though!


    Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you: Vivek B.C.


    Enjoy!

Great! Best podcast in HK and in Asia !

I always listen to the episodes, the hk comedians are hilarious! I love listening to them.

They have insight stories which even the locals did not know. For e.g. the organic Chocolate couple defintely gonna check them out.

Defintely recommend to everyone who are interested learning more about Asia / Hong Kong.
