Café Seoul is a time travel discussion podcast that dissects and reviews time travel films. We try to forensically reconstruct timelines that we did not see on screen applying various time travel theories to figure out what had to have happened in order for what we see on screen to have happened. It’s a lot of fun to do, and we hope it’s equally as fun to listen to! From 2013 to 2017, Café Seoul was a Korea-based expat-lifestyle podcast. Co-hosted by a duo of expats from North America, each episode dealt with a particular hot-button theme or issue. Café Seoul at that time discussed recent news, answered listener questions, and interviewed interesting people all for the sake of intelligent discussion with a dash of humor.

Review of Game of Thrones - Most satisfying deaths, predictions, retrospective of the series so far, etc etc. It wouldn't be Café Seoul without nerding it up.

On the Pulse: Exit Interview - Rob and Eugene reflect on the past 10 years in Korea. Rob asks Eugene to make top three lists on various expat in Korea related topics while introducing some of his own.
