A Catch-Up on Bon Appétit History

In this episode of A Bit of Culture, Kam is joined by Skip Intro sweetheart, Julian Yap and the return of the voice of Evening Intro, Lee Chwi Lynn, to engage in a discussion on swastikas, cooking challenges and patronising pop-culture fans. Returning from the George Town Literary Festival 2019, Kam is intrigued by the work of a German author about the historical vacuum that exists in Eastern-Germany after World War II. On the other side of the boat, Lynn has gotten hooked on Bon Appétit’s YouTube channel and relishes on the satisfaction of seeing wholesome content from relatable online personalities. And Julian objects the condescending attitude some fans adopt when they expect everyone to recognise relics of pop-culture, in effect to generational differences.
