The Bureau Podcast

By The Bureau Asia

Think news, gossip, drive-time radio and mates bantering at the front bar of the pub but without the fights, and you'll have the essence of TBP. Each week join Matt, Mel & Andy who have a combined total of over 25 years of lived experience in Ho Chi Minh City as they chat, debate and laugh about what's new and old in Vietnam's biggest city. If you’re a foodie, traveller, history buff or just want to be educated and entertained about Vietnam and Southeast Asia, then The Bureau Podcast is for you!
