So many compelling stories from Asia never make it to any airwaves: broadcast or podcast. We are changing that. Join us for a storytelling show that brings to life the hidden, the fascinating, the colorful, the funny, the serious… the happenings across Asia. The show features deeply reported stories from the hosts, as well as reporters across the region. And surprises. We promise surprises. Your hosts, reporter Naomi Gingold and lawyer/policy wonk Jacky Ahn Yang, are as versed in (and geeky about) Asian boy bands and obscure video games as they are regional politics and tech policy. Formerly known as: Not the Hello Kitty Show - NTHKS
A Rockstar Dies in the Myanmar Jungle
After the military toppled the young democratic government in February 2021, Raymond, beloved rockstar and frontman for the band Idiots got involved in the peaceful street protests in Myanmar. That was before the military began ferociously attacking its own citizens across the country.
We begin this story the day the Internet first went dark post coup.

Great podcast for hearing about Asia.
Terrific voices for radio!
Worth the wait
The co-hosts have a great rapport. The first episode was a very touching eulogy for a musician. I can't wait to hear more.
I’ve been waiting for this podcast and the wait was worthwhile! The two hosts play off each other well while providing information in both a serious and a humorous manner, as appropriate. Anxiously awaiting the next shows. :-)
