I chat with good friend Nikki, a Singaporean living in Estonia. We talk about living life as a foreigner, the startup scene in Tallinn, and most importantly, we talk about food. We recorded this episode way back in February 2020, right before COVID took the world by storm.
The Kitties drags Rindo (Livin' it up in Lion City podcast) down into the Longkangs to discuss xenophobia in Singapore, an emotionally charge and difficult topic to broach.
What exactly counts as xenophobia? Are there alternative explanations to what is going on within Singapore? And most importantly, what can we do to address such issues?
Optional sidequest, have a listen to Rindo's "Understanding Xenophobia in Singapore" series first! In this episode, we're specifically talking about part 2 of the series; https://livingitupinlioncity.com/podcast/understanding-xenophobia-in-singapore-part-2-the-nature-of-local-discomfort-over-foreigners/?fbclid=IwAR0lSbPxOnVk9bbTZxi7poqm5J7FQm8kgUvIIx0XYwXbGvIrG76y7OvpY5Y
The Lobang Boys are joined with Rindo, The Mayor of Geylang, for a WILD episode where we dive into the history of the founding fathers of Singapore. Did Sang Nila Utama really see a lion or was he tripping? The Lobang Boys take turns to give each other a history lesson on the early days of Singapura. And most importantly, we pronounced William Farquhar's name correctly!
