Like a kid meeting their superhero, we actually got the founder of Ozbargain for an interview(the website Nathan and I are constantly refreshing)! Scott Yang or also better known on the website as, 'scotty', comes on to talk about the origin story of Ozbargain, his favourite bargains and top tips for bargain hunting. We try to find out if there's anything that he pays full price for...

Salutations fellow listeners. This is a quick preview of the collab I did with the lovely hosts Hang and Helen of Highkey Asian Podcast a few weeks ago. I had a great time collabing with them and the topic was just so fun to record. Let me know if you want to hear more from them.

It was finally time to cover a nice, thick and juicy topic. We put a bit of a spin on this by adding some Asian themed flags and also a flag positioning system. Some of these are kind of more oriented as "icks" rather than flags, so this positioning systems helps to alleviate from going straight to red flag for some things. Don't take us too seriously.😂 Listen along and see if your flags are positioned similarly...

This episode is a prime example of how easy it is to get side tracked during a recording. Join Heeji and I as we chat a little about her experiences being raised in Australia and then delve into some juicy South Korea travel tips. There will be things to eat, see, do and some sneaky hidden gems that you can use for your next trip. Take a shot for every time I reference Japan. 💀😂

Get hyped for freedom day, we're so keen to get out and do something other than walks to the park and back. Matt betrays Nathan, Nathan and I think we have an alcohol problem, I become vulnerable. Also Nathan's microphone was plugged weirdly or something, it's a bit crackly at times - the issue with remote recordings.

Matt stumbles upon a quiz people have been taking to learn more about a person. We answer some of the questions to get to know one another and see whether we might just be a perfect match. We tried to segue into the ad spot but ended up just recording it after we finished recording the main topics. 😂

Recorded on 15/7/21. I finally got around to editing this so you might realise that some of the stuff that we are talking about is a bit outdated. Yes, I understand the irony of when I say I like having somewhat better-quality recordings when there is a slight hissing sound this episode ☹. This is an off-topic one where we just cover what’s been happening since lockdown initially started, what we’ve been doing and just overall rand...

With international travel still not close in sight, I figured it might be a good time to whip out more overseas tales. My uni friend, Gautam, spent 6 months in Amsterdam “studying” and travelling around Europe. Hear his tales of adventure and woe as we reminisce the once blissful days of international travel.

18+ This episode gets a bit raunchy...

A lighthearted episode where we discuss common Asian stereotypes, how we feel about them and explore its origins. We also understand that everyone feels differently about certain stereotypes - we are not speaking as a whole, just ourselves personally. 

Alex was kind of a side character in this episode who chimed in every so often.

Guests: Alex Rodriguez, Matthew Ky, Nathan Phu

We have heard the stories from our regular guest, Nathan, the self-imposed “white-washed Asian”. Now it’s time to get the perspective of the other side of the coin, a “yellow-washed white guy” (He doesn’t think he is, we just kind of exaggerate it onto him). Alex comes on to talk about his experiences growing up in a multi-cultural community, experiencing many different cultural aspects and customs. We also discover his experience ...

Picture this: You're 12 years old, it is 6PM on a Tuesday night and you ask your dad for a sip of his beer. It is disgusting and you think to yourself, "I would never drink alcohol, this is terrible." Fast forward to now where alcohol is always prevalent, while it may not be yourself but with some, if not most of your friends. Drinking is a huge influence in our culture, and we will be exploring the different nuances in...

Another extra curricular sport to add to your list. A new guest appears, one of my old friends joins me as I explore more about his favourite sport that he has been playing for years now. He claims it's much better than Oz Tag, but maybe listen to Episode 17 before you choose which one you want to try.

I uncover the rabbit hole of roles out there and also the tech jobs that we have experienced.

    If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
