The Bangkok Podcast | Thailand Expat Life

By Greg Jorgensen & Ed Knuth

Greg Jorgensen and Ed Knuth have been knocking around Bangkok since the turn of the century. Exploring its dark corners, eating its strange food, and interacting with its stranger people, the two have gotten to know and love the Big Mango in all its awful, magnificent glory. Every week they chat about topics near and dear to those living here, those visiting here, or those who are just curious about what it's like to live in Asia's craziest city.
