A Vietnamese educator who has been prevented from teaching, now finds the last part of his identity stripped from him: His Vietnamese citizenship. Professor Phạm Minh Hoàng, a 61-year-old blogger who writes about human rights, social justice, and corruption in Việt Nam, is on the record from Sài Gòn.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Đổi Mới, a series of economic reforms that changed Việt Nam from a centrally planned economy to what some describe as a “socialist-oriented free market” economy. These reforms changed a lot of things for a lot of people, and the generation born after Đổi Mới live lives that previous generations could barely dream of 30 years ago. Two women - Eliza Lomas and Fabiola Buchele - seek to understand their experiences. In their podcast series, “The Renovation Generation,” Lomas and Buchele share intimate conversations with post-Đổi Mới youth and draw sonic portraits of their lives and experiences.
Eliza Lomas and Fabiola Buchele are "On the Record" with Loa’s Stella Trần.
