    #318 - Did Tommy Koh really say SG is snobbish & Naomi Neo backlash over prank video

    In a recent CNA podcast, Singapore's ambassador-at-large Tommy Koh called Singapore a "very snobbish and hierarchical society". We break down his comments and why it needs to be taken in context.

    #317 - Orchard Towers nightlife outlets to be shut & NDP crying man sparks discussion

    The Singapore police announced that licences for club and bar operators in Orchard Towers will not be renewed beyond May 2023 due to concerns about law and order. What does this mean for the Orchard Road nightlife scene? Also, at NDP, the image of an audience member crying during the singing of the national anthem went viral, sparking discussions online about how appropriate a reaction it is. Is it OK for a grown man to wear his heart on his sleeve in 2022?

    #314 - Will Smith posts apology video & Bishan seafood stall to charge GST and service charge

    And after our short COVID holiday, we are back! And so is Will Smith, who got us to “take a minute, just sit right there” to watch his apology video on his YouTube channel, 4 months after slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars. We discuss the backlash to his video, and what he really needs to do to get out of this PR nightmare. Closer to home, people got angsty when a seafood stall in a Bishan kopitiam announced that it will start charging GST and service charge come 1st August. Is this the start of more price hikes coming to our beloved kopitiams?

    #313 - Comedian Rishi Budhrani on hosting NDP, his physical transformation & the anti-repeal town hall

    We get honest (and humbling) thoughts from Rishi about the behind-the-scenes of NDP 2022 and being hand picked as one of the 4 hosts. We also chat about the motivation behind his 110-day physical transformation, the future of SG comedy & more. And we also discuss the recent 1,200-person ”Protect Singapore” town hall against repealing 377A. Did they do anything wrong? What about the LGBTQ+ community? And what happens next?
