    In this Haresh-less episode, we end the patriarchy with guest host Caitanya Tan @caitofalltraits, as we deep dive into the recent debate about why more women in Singapore are choosing to remain single. We also discuss her thoughts about a viral Reddit thread about the Singapore podcast scene, and why some locals think our accent is “cringe”.

    #539 ft. Jacky Ng - Oil Spill Stains Singapore & Does Creativity Exist in Schools?

    In light of Haresh’s absence, we have comedian Jacky onboard as this week’s guest host! We talk about last weekend’s big news: the oil spill caused by an allision between two vessels that stained coastlines at East Coast Park, Labrador Nature Reserve, Keppel Bay, the Southern Islands and Sentosa. We discuss the media frenzy around the issue, and whether more could have been done to contain the spill. Aside from that, we also talk about creativity in Singapore schools, as MOE revealed that Singapore’s 15-year-olds topped a global test of creative thinking despite not thinking of themselves as creative.

    #538 - Yah Lah BUT Live! BTO System Leads to More Divorces in Singapore

    2 years after our last SOLD OUT live show, we’re finally back with another YLB LIVE recording! 40 YLB listeners spent Saturday night with us at Monk’s Brew Club, as we discussed the thorny issue of whether BTOs lead to more divorces in Singapore. In a slight departure from our usual format, we had other interactive segments like “Most Not Shiok Comments” and an audience Q&A. For those who missed out this time, we promise that there’ll be more live shows, so make sure to follow our socials to keep up to date with our latest announcements!!

    #537 - Singapore Airlines Offers US$10K to Passengers in Turbulence Incident & Circles.Life Porn Ad Draws Flak

    This week, Singapore Airlines announced that it would compensate passengers who suffered “minor injuries” in the SQ321 turbulence incident US$10K each. We discuss whether this is a generous offer. Elsewhere, a Circles.Life video ad, which depicted a teenager being caught watching porn by his mother, drew brickbats from online commenters. What was so bad about it, and is there really such a thing as bad PR?

    #536 - Singles to Blame for Lack of Babies in SG & Kid’s Poster Banned From Sports Hub Football Match

    #536 - Singles to Blame for Lack of Babies in SG & Kid’s Poster Banned From Sports Hub Football Match

    A Department of Statistics report recently found that more women remaining single is one of the contributing factors for Singapore’s baby drought. However, the ST article headline covering this report was slammed for seemingly laying the blame squarely on women. We discuss why the headline didn’t paint an accurate picture of the situation. Elsewhere, a Singaporean kid brought a handmade poster to the Singapore-South Korea football match at the Sports Hub, only to be told that his poster was not allowed. However, other people who brought posters supporting the Koreans were allowed entry. Why the inconsistency?

    #535 - LTA Officer’s Death Sparks Outrage Against Teen & Singaporean Students Reconsider US Universities

    #535 - LTA Officer’s Death Sparks Outrage Against Teen & Singaporean Students Reconsider US Universities

    This week, an 18-year-old involved in a motorcycle chase that killed a Land Transport Authority (LTA) officer tried to absolve himself of blame in his first court appearance. His comments sparked outrage online, with many online commenters questioning why he was not charged for causing the death of the officer. We do a layman dissection of the legal situation. Elsewhere, some Singaporean students have decided against going to the US for their university studies, stating that they feared how pro-Palestinian protests would get in the way of their studies. We discuss why they might want to rethink their decision.
