On The Sofa: Monocle Video Podcasts

Monocle magazine also publishes a regular Monocle podcast series. My favourite episode to date was the Bangkok community radio station where listeners provide real-time advice and try to help during a range of incidients whether it is a snake catcher or calling for assistance around a car accident. Behind this community spirit is an altruism due to the Buddhist belief in trying to gain merit in this life, which could also be responsible for the success of knowledge search / Q&A services in  the likes of Korea and Taiwan compared to western countries.
