Karsten is a well known entrepeneur in Thailand whose well crafted work has now extended into podcasts. His sessions are informative, casual and great to listen to! Highly recommended. I recently got a chance to listen to Sukumwit Noir the interview with Jake Needham. It was really interesting and I'm going to read a few of Needham's books now.
