Episode 40

Episode 40:

We’ve got a packed studio (and mini reunion) for DIU Podcast’s season two finale. Joining Gavin, Jack, and Kyle in studio this week is Jonathan and Taimoor – two friends who just so happened to be in Japan while Jack and Kyle were visiting. The gang retell the story of their initial meeting. The four then go on to describe the experiences travelling with their respective travel partner and a surprising number of similarities appear.

Jack’s mind is blown when Jonathan and Taimoor both state that they have white girlfriends – shattering Jack’s old worldview that Asian men can’t get with white girls.

Lastly, the higher-ups at DIU Podcast have finally had it with the Love Guru’s lack of new articles. Season two ends with another major cliffhanger as it is revealed that the Jack has been stripped of his Love Guru title. What does this mean for the Kao Lui Corner? Find out in season three!

DIU Podcast will return in late March… (date TBA)

Episode 38

Episode 38:

Up-and-coming mukbang personality, Momo, joins us this week on DIU Podcast. Jack brings in the issue of how his bros disappear after they get into relationships. The discussion seems oddly specific and directed to someone in particular (very passive-aggressive). Meanwhile, Gavin talks about the issue of self-entitlement. Are we self-entitled? Is it a bad thing to be self-entitled? All discussed, while throwing (not-so) subtle shade at Jack for posting TFTI on a Facebook comment thread.

Afterwards, sparks begin to FLY as Jack questions Momo during the Kao Lui Corner! Listen in as Jack begins to list off the qualities he wants to see in his wife, and stay tuned in as we may witness the origin story of the Internet’s newest power couple – Jomo <3 !!!

Check out Momo Mukbang!
