The best podcasts about Hong Kong life, culture and history
There are a million podcasts out there for eager listeners but if you want something a little more specific to Hong Kong, then try some of these shows.
Not only about Hong Kong daily life, but also about the culture and history that shaped the city itself. The podcast features interviews with authors and historians about the city and is hosted by AnneMarie Evans, who tirelessly navigates the city and it’s stories.
This podcast features ordinary citizens who are coached to tell their story in front of a live audience, all done by a nonprofit group aiming to spread the word of the average Hong Kong native. They deal with all sorts of different themes, but each one has their own distinct and individual touch.
If you prefer something on the raunchy side, then listen to this. Sara Tang and Jye Smith try to re-educate a rather conservative city, conducting surveys and presenting facts and figures galore. They focus not only on the physical side but also on the mental, so if you want to re-educate yourself or just be better at the most natural thing on earth, then this cast is the one for you.
