On today’s episode of The Coconuts Podcast: To be king or wear a ring? Malaysia’s would-have-been monarch gave up the former for the sake of the latter when he married a Russian beauty queen half his age. Word is out that didn’t work out so well. Indonesia is talking about marital rape – which some conservatives say is an oxymoron – after a wife said her husband’s demand for his “sex quota” forced her to savage him with an axe. Fifty years ago this week, three Ameridudes were sailing toward the moon in a metal box. Todd talks about the day the moon men came to Bangkok.
