Eat Your Kimchi on SBS PopAsia! Simon and Martina bring you all the latest on J-pop, K-pop and Asian pop culture. They take you on adventures through Japan and Korea, diving in to the culture, tasting the food and learning a lot along the way.
That's a wrap!
After four wonderfully nasty years Simon and Martina say goodbye to SBS PopAsia. They look back at their time on the radio show and podcast, before sharing a final story about watching the World Cup at a lovely bar which serves toast and handmade jams alongside an impressive selection of craft beers.
EXTRA: People are not robot servants
Have we lost our sense of manners and decency? Simon and Martina are seasoned travelers and are disappointed to see service workers being treated rudely by tourists all too often.
Stories from Thailand
Simon and Martina are kicking back on a beach in Koh Samui, Thailand for their wedding anniversary and they've already racked up some fun stories just days into their trip. There's one about a little girl who wants a tattoo, trying to drink sparkling wine on a speedboat, and a special travel pig named Kogi.
Appreciating food, culture & remembering Anthony Bourdain
Simon and Martina remember Anthony Bourdain who was a big influence and inspiration for them as foodies and presenters. Depression is a reality for some people, including Simon and Martina, who share their experiences living with the disease.
If you, or a loved one, are feeling depressed or just need someone to talk to, please contact beyondblue on 1300 22 4636, or Lifeline on 13 11 14.
EXTRA: Simon's musical memory
Simon is really bad when it comes to matching dates with particular events. Instead, the songs he listens to during certain events remain as time markers in his memory.
How K-Pop can help the entire Korean music scene
Simon and Martina are passionate about the indie music scene in Korea but generally disappointed at the lack of promotion for these artists. Can the success of K-Pop bring attention to other music genres in Korea?
I love these guys so much and listening to them gets me through the workday. I’m so sad that they won’t be podcasting anymore 😭😭😭😭
I loved this podcast, it got me through road trips, long haul flights, and data entry. I will miss it. I would LOVE if they made an independently produced podcast in the future.
Definitely gonna miss this
Thank you guys so much for providing great and interesting entertainment for when I’m working, working out or just chilling. I will most certainly miss this podcast as this is the podcast channel that got me into listening to podcasts in the first place. Looking forward to the potential future video podcasts and your continuing work on YouTube!
