Saigoneer Podcast: Alternative Medicine in the Modern World; Can Netflix Dethrone YouTube?

A new episode is out now!

This week, we begin (1:00) by discussing the dangers, and potential benefits, of alternative medicine. While sham treatments spread via social media can be dangerous, are we too quick to dismiss methods not used at hospitals or clinics?

Then (18:33), we look at video streaming platforms in light of Netflix's recent addition of a Vietnamese-language interface. Will the streaming giant's local productions improve? Can it compete against YouTube and digital piracy?

As always, we end with Bánh Mì Banter (33:39).
