We frequently interrupt the movie to comment and discuss what we are watching. Among the things we discussed: Twinkies, Korean history, pimp moves, 1980s aesthetics, whether Yoo Ah In and Go Kyung Pyo are attractive in this movie, and what about the film doesn't make sense. Enjoy!

Cleaning the BGS Vault: The Blerd Explorer Interview
This is one of our better episodes that got lost in the vault. Listen to our interview with the Blerd Explorer (aka Phil, @theblerdexplorer) about his book, The Black Traveler's Guide to Daegu, South Korea. It's chock full of helpful information and insights about his life in South Korea, and first-hand accounts from a self-professed Black traveler, gamer, foodie, and all around blerd (Black + nerd). Maybe you've read one of his travel guides (buy them at Amazon.com), or you've watched his hilarious TikTok videos. But this week we plan to mention him and his books often because they aren't to be missed! Topics: Daegu food and culture; what Korean hoods are like; clothing in South Korea; cocoa butter-sniffing kids; Oprah, Lebron, and Wakanda in South Korea; the benefits of living and travel the world; healthcare abroad.
