Tune-in to The Straits Times Foreign Desk’s revamped Asian Insider audio line-up, with daily weekday podcasts and all-new live audio shows.
Our 30-odd correspondents in 15 cities across the Asia Pacific, the United States and Europe will share ST’s distinct take on global issues with an Asian perspective, streamed on popular platforms Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Google Podcasts, and Google Home/Nest smart speakers, as well as ST’s podcast tab on its website.
Join our first-ever Clubhouse events where you can engage with our Asian Insider journalists from across our bureaus, led by ST foreign editor Bhagyashree Garekar. Ask them questions and join the conversation on topics discussed live on these twice-monthly chat shows.
Live social audio apps such as Clubhouse are similar to Zoom videoconferencing webinars, but without the video element. Clubhouse chat sessions disappear once they’re over, and there is no recording of it.
The first ST Asian Insider chat session is on July 30 from 1pm - 1.45pm, on the topic: Tang Ping, Nei Juan And Poisonous Chicken Soup For The Soul?
The panel will discuss what these Chinese terms mean, and how feelings of wanting to escape the rat race in China still exist, despite national promotion of values such as hard work and competitiveness.
Hosted by ST’s Foreign Desk editors and moderated by podcast editor Ernest Luis, the guest speaker is ST’s China correspondent Aw Cheng Wei.
Join us to discuss such sentiments across Asia too.
Participants are welcome to click the “raise your hand” function in the Clubhouse chat session to ask a question at any time.
See you then, or to be more exact, hear from you live then.
