There is no such thing as “Perfect”.


You know parents are the same no matter time nor place
They don’t understand that us kids are gonna make some mistakes
So to you, all the kids all across the land
There’s no need to argue, parents just don’t understand

— The Fresh Prince

Now I ain’t that old that the lyrics to this iconic song links directly to my age. Just felt it fit the subject, something I came across recently by one of our guests Denester, CP, Parkour God, that made me want to write about this. I don’t want to specify parents as the problem…


“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
Edgar Allan Poe

The “Drug Problem” has been a topic that has plagued the world for ages. Governments all around struggle with deciding on and implementing the right laws to protect their people. …


This new economy is an unpredictable one. In countries like Singapore, it is increasingly challenging to make a comfortable living with just one job alone. My brother even told me that if you didn’t have 2–3 sources of income, it would be increasingly challenging for a person to just have an enjoyable lifestyle.

“We criticize anyone who tries to break away from the rat race, because the idea that there is a way out scares us more than dying in the state we’re in.”

“The secret to getting ahead is getting started.”
Mark Twain

In 2019, I started to go crazy listening to podcasts every moment I had. On the train, driving, just leaving something on while I’m running my errands. I’d confidently say that I have spent a massive amount of time multi-tasking with a podcast playing in the background. As with most men, I started with the Joe Rogan Experience as basic as that might sound. I wasn’t a particularly big fan of his comedic style so I was not a fan of him nor was I a fan of…


What is our fascination with the supernatural?

“To tell a ghost story means being willing to be haunted.”
Judith “Jack” Halberstam

In one of our more popular episodes, we met up with podcasters Kyle & Wayne of Ghost Maps! They collect real stories from the SEA region and narrate them on their podcast. I got fascinated with this form of podcasting since a friend of mine introduced me to his own podcast whereby the whole essence is not about conversation but rather pure 100% storytelling. …


The topic for the launch of their Season 4 was about Egg Freezing. A topic that to be frank, as a man, has never once crossed my mind. Having only heard about it predominantly from Western media. I automatically assumed that it was a norm of society. Do give the episode a watch on youtube & give them a subscribe. You will learn something. Trust me.

I have actually considered donating my sperm for money. Something I thought I could make money with lol because I consume so much American movies. I was disappointed to find out that it…


Doing the podcast with my friend Lynette was a unique one. It was in a way a catch up between friends as well as an education in TCM. Something I can honestly say I know very little about simply because of the vast nature that it encompasses.

Firstly, from a podcasting standpoint, I felt that the dynamic of that episode was fantastic. A woman’s voice, especially one so vocal, easy to talk to and opinionated was one that is lacking on the show. Something till today I’ve considered how to incorporate onto our show long term. …


Before we got Reggie on, I actually spent a lot of time pondering how we were going to take our podcast. The direction, the feel, the vibe, etc. His appearance solidified my thinking and I took it from there and ran. We felt that in the first 9 episodes, we got down the vibe of the podcast pretty well. It was going to be raw, real, unfiltered yet filled with laughter and fun.

So when I reached out to our 2nd guest, I had a vision of how it would have gone. I personally had the vision, that if we…


An interview with podcast powerhouse Reggie from The Financial Coconut

Somewhere along my journey into podcasting, I realized a need to create content differently. Most podcasters are famous first before jumping into podcasting while we had the struggle of being absolute nobodies. The problem then arises, why would people give a shit about you?

Long-story short, if we at The Drunken Ramblings Podcast, continued to only do updates & current affairs content, we will struggle to go far. There is no point in doing content as nobodies when famous people are doing the same. …
