    #109 - All about Hong Kong nightlife with HKClubbing founder Nick Willsher

    In 1999, Nick Willsher founded HKClubbing.com as he couldn't find reliable info on where the good parties were. Today almost 24 years later, HKclubbing grew to be the ultimate Hong Kong nightlife guide and Nick went into the music promotion business, as well as starting Entertaining Asia, an integrated event and hospitality consultancy based in HK.

    #108 - Hong Kong’s best tourist attractions in 2023!

    We survived CNY shenanigans but not completely unscathed. Mohammed has taken his entire family all over HK for almost 3 weeks and he is "never gonna financially recover from this". Luckily for us, he gives us a full report on the main tourist attractions in HK. 
    Is Disneyland HK still worth a visit? What's the state of Ocean Park? What's a Water World? and why you should probably never get in a Lantau blue taxi.

    #107 - Mohammed’s mom flew to Hong Kong a few hours before her passport expired!

    If it's travel, passport or visa related, we can rely on Mohammed (and evidently the rest of his family) to make some highly entertaining bad decisions. This is probably the riskiest one so far. Mohammed's mom flew into Hong Kong just a few hours before her only passport expired.
    Happy year of the rabbit folks!

    #106 - What to do when your family visits Hong Kong?

    #106 - What to do when your family visits Hong Kong?

    Hong Kong has its borders wide open and the CNY holiday is upon us. Mohammed's family decided to visit from Egypt for the first time and he has a lot to rant about. Where do people actually go for "touristy stuff" and why is visiting the Big Buddha isn't the best idea? Vivek gives a lot of solid advice.
    Mohammed also got locked out of his friend's house at midnight with the dog inside the house and he tries to make it back in and the story ends unsurprisingly with the cops showing up.

    #105 - Turns out trolling banker wankers is easier than you think! w/John Buckman

    #105 - Turns out trolling banker wankers is easier than you think! w/John Buckman

    We are back to our regular scheduled programming and this week we have a retuning fan-favorite, Mr. John Buckman. John has a long history of starting, running and selling successful startups and he was the head of the EFF
    John is not shy about his love for Hong Kong, and one of the things he has in common with many Hong Kongers (and Mohammed!) is his displeasure with banks and bankers in general. While most of us are happy with laughing at memes about banker wankers, John decided to do something about it, way before memes were the main median of showing discontent and boy did he go all out, then things turned scary. It's a fascinating tale.

Disappointed tbh

I was looking forward to a fun and interesting podcast in English based in HK yet unfortunately found myself quite disappointed. I understand that as comedians they need to make jokes to make people laugh, but some of their statements are just plain ignorant. Not all people have lived lives where “420” clicks as something inappropriate automatically. I am over 30 years old, lived in over 10 countries and didn’t know about this terminology until I met my pothead (now) ex, 2 years ago. “Weed” was not something that immediately registered in my mind upon seeing 4/20, and I find it rude that they laugh about that being somehow ignorant and abnormal. It would’ve been funny if they had just mentioned that they were say “potheads” even if that were an overstatement, and then laughed about seeing 4/20 and how they thought it was hilarious.
Also the fact that one of the guys immediately thought of racist jokes, but only refrained from saying them out loud from “fear of being cancelled”, shows the lack of respect he has towards the people and the culture here (regardless of whatever ethnicity he’s from).
They're whole take on making fun of others (be it kids who have a desires to go to school for example) just feels very off putting and not a great influence overall. I think there are more benign ways of producing comedy.

I give them 2 stars for creating a podcast and hustling, but I find it hard to feel the desire to support them. Sorry.

Highly recommend!

I’ve been following Andy’s career and podcast since day one. Always good for a lot of laughs.
