On today’s episode of The Coconuts Podcast: Remember when Hong Kong was a boring place? Anti-government protesters are drawing up “ultimate battle plans” online for heightened unrest following last weekend’s Rise of the Triads moment when white-shirted hordes dispensed free beatdowns to all in sight at the MTR Yuen Long station. An Indonesian woman incurs Balinese wrath by basically tweeting that everyone on the island is a ho. Donald Trump impresses the world with his sensitivity and acumen while comforting marginalized minority groups. Teirra finds out why people whispering on YouTube are more popular than karaoke.
