As quick as 30 days of June have flown by,
so we’ve shot 30 Monday Night Chats, oh my!
(I’m sorry it’s 30 minutes late—I did try!)
Whether you’ve joined us ever since we first filmed on 26 Sept last year, or tuned in midway through, thank you for watching! Stay till the end of this one to glimpse the future of oil: Bloomberg flies in the face of conventional oil-company wisdom on global oil consumption. What then does the future hold for Malaysia, given our oil dependency?
First, our four fantastic interns (get more serious this week and) present their research topics: One challenges discrimination in all its ugly forms; another pair considers the (soft) power of Malaysian food & culture; while the fourth fights for our Orang Asli.
Boss-man then continues the show: Wong Chen gives his views on Jho Low’s alleged pink-diamond gift to MO1’s wife, the Government’s GST flip-flop, and the Royal Commission of Inquiry into Bank Negara’s (Dr. Mahathir’s?) forex scandal.
With all that gloomy news though, our office seizes every reason to celebrate, so we start with a little 30th-episode party!
