"Livin' it up in Lion City!" is a podcast about life in the sunny island of Singapore, where friends and I talk about our experiences and our takes on stuff happening on this little red dot.
I'm a guy from India living in Singapore for more than a decade.
We're not experts, celebrities, or captains of industry - this is all about regular conversations, with regular people.
Hope you enjoy this little podcast!
Immigration, Integration, Identity
We have a chat with Maria Isaeva, a long time resident of Singapore who recently left the country, about identity, about integration, and what it means to call Singapore home.
Racism: Why is it so hard to talk about it in Singapore?
Racism is a touchy topic in Singapore, but there has been a resurgence in dialogue in light of recent events that highlight the problem of racism in Singapore. The voices are many, and highly polarized. So how do we talk about this effectively? We chat with Mohd Suhaile, a former journalist, Syafiqah Taufek, a grad student in the Department of Malay Studies, NUS, and Daniel Goh, Associate Professor of Sociology, NUS.
This is part of the series Coming Together, a collaboration with NGO The Whitehatters.
What do Foreigners need to know?
In the wake of rising anti-foreigner sentiments in a country that has always been labeled an "expat paradise", what do foreigners need to know, when arriving in Singapore?
We have a chat with expats Melissa and Amanda.
This episode is part of the series "Coming Together", a collaboration with The Whitehatters, a local NGO that seeks to foster dialogue between various communities of topics of social cohesion.
The "True Blue" vs the "New": the blurred lines of Singaporean-ness
What makes a Singaporean "Singaporean"? We have a conversation about Singaporean identity, about notions of "true blue Singaporeans" and "new Singaporeans", and why this is prevalent in contemporary discourse today.
Our guest is Danny Koordi, a podcast producer and founder of the local podcaster community Podcast SG.

In the first episode of the series "Coming Together" in collaboration with the NGO theWhiteHatters.sg, we have a conversation about the local sentiments of foreigners seemingly not integrating in Singapore, and what the word "integration" actually means.
