6. The More Better Podcast
Entertainer Fakkah Fuzz’s podcast is definitely The More Better Podcast. That’s a great title if you ask me, especially for marketing purposes. This podcast mainly features interviews with several well-known and, some may say, iconic Singaporeans such as Hirzi Zulkiflie, Nathan Hartono and Jian Hao Tan! This podcast also talks about relevant issues and discussions in our society today such as mental health and racism.
The Onion Aunties
These ladies talk about issues in Singapore, mainly the issues faced as Asian women. Just like onions, life has many layers and through this podcast, they share experiences that they have had and the lessons they have learnt.
These podcasts will definitely give you some insight and an alternative perspective to societal issues. What I think is the greatest thing about podcasts is how that isn’t where the conversation ends. On the contrary, I believe podcasts initiate people to start talking about these issues and topics and addressing them. So let’s keep the conversations going and continue gaining the wisdom of these local podcasters!
