Thank you for listening to Seven Million Bikes, A Vietnam podcast. My name's Niall Mackay and I've been the host of this podcast since 2019, when we started as A Saigon Podcast. We set out to share the stories of people that lived in Saigon, because it's such a crazy energetic city. And there was so many interesting people here.
As the podcast grew, we started to interview more and more people from across the world. The all have a connection to, and a love for Vietnam. So we hope if you're a regular listener, you've enjoyed these stories. And if you're new to the podcast, then enjoy this episode, which is from the archives. While we take a break after season seven.
If you are new, then make sure you subscribe to the podcast so you get notifications for new episodes and check us out on Facebook and Instagram, YouTube and even Tik Tok. Enjoy this episode. Thanks for listening.
My first guest on Seven Million Bikes is JK Hobson. As a finalist in the 2018 Vietnam Comedy Competition JK is known by many in Saigon as a stand-up, but is a man of many talents. We had so much to talk about I’ve split this first episode into two parts.

Growing up in New York, JK moved to LA with his “fairly well known” thrash-metal band, Crisis. After Crisis split and he returned to University, JK initially came to Vietnam on a study abroad program in 2015, returning in 2016 on a Fulbright Scholarship. He went on to co-found Saigon Funny People, regularly hosting open mic nights and performing stand-up comedy. JK now writes for City Pass Guide, Saigoneer and TaleCity, has appeared on Vietnamese TV AND teaches English. The main questions I’ll be asking JK is ‘What do you not do? And where do you find the time?’

Part 1

First of all we talk about what it was like growing up in New York and how lucky we both feel to be of a generation that didn’t have their lives pictured, recorded and shared for the world to see.

JK shares stories from his days with Crisis and life with a touring band that then moved from New York to LA. We also get into race relations in America, especially under Donald Trump, and how that influenced JK’s decision to stay in Vietnam.
