A German friend - who lives in Singapore - and a Singaporean
friend - who's lived in Germany - talk about their experiences
living life as foreigners. About language, about culture shock,
about stereotypes, about racism...
About the Podcast
"Livin' it up in Lion City!" is a podcast about life in the sunny island of Singapore, where friends and I talk about our experiences and our takes on stuff happening on this little red dot.
I'm a guy from India living in Singapore for close to a decade, and this podcast is an attempt at understanding Singapore outside of the old and tired narratives that it's "boring", "soul-less", "lacking culture" etc etc. While I generally disagree with such sentiments, I find that these opinions are widely held, both among Singaporeans and foreigners, so this is a loose exercise at finding out why.
Emphasis on the word "loose" - in the end, it's just a bunch of friends and I having a coupla beers and talking about anything and everything. We're not experts, celebrities, or captains of industry - this is all about regular conversations, with regular people.
Hope you enjoy this little podcast!
