THIS WEEK we chat with Greg from the Bangkok Podcast . Greg moved from his passport country of Canada to Thailand 17 years ago. His IRC chatroom habits at home changed quite a bit since this move and we try to sort out (Canadian vowel here folks!) if it was the changing digital landscape or his move to another country (and all of the cultural and social changes that go with the expat experience) that brought on these changes, including writing his blog, Greg to Differ and creating the Bangkok Podcast.
Note: If you’ve been following Virtual Expats Podcast for awhile you may recognize the Bangkok Podcast from a review I did of it back when the podcast was called the Armchair Expat (not available online anymore, sorry!) Special thanks needs to go out to Greg’s co-hosts present and past of the Bangkok Podcast: 1. Ed Knuth is the current (and wonderful) co-host of the show but we also need to mention Greg’s previous co-hosts on the podcast: 2. Evo Terra (master of many projects but the one I am, a Podcaster, currently obsessed with is “Podcast Pontifications”) and 3. Anthony Joh of the “Speak Up Asia” Podcast.
