73 - MBF Podcast - Work Hard & be Quirky (SE Asian News)

73 - MBF DABWM 11 Work Quirk.jpg

Topics include: Boxing in the dark, Austrian Bakers, Fish Pics at 8,000m under the sea, Mud Festival, Tape Collections, Gyoza Robots, Priest Robots, Virtual Performance, and migrant reports from our boots on the ground listeners in Europe. 

I put forth this idea -- WORK HARD & BE QUIRKY!!  We all hear about weird stuff in SE Asia -- do you know why?  Hahaha! No you don't!  It's because they work hard.  In fact they work so hard that they don't have time to protest and call people Nazis on Facebook. SE Asians only have enough time to be quirky.  I am on this train! Hence, my podcast. I scoured video news sources and found examples to support my theory.
