Not Culture

English, TV & Video, 2 seasons, 20 episodes, 23 hours, 18 minutes
First of all; It's not about culture. Welcome to Not Culture! The podcast about life in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. Hosted by Daniel Lovai and myself, we aim to talk about what we've been up to in Port Moresby, our obsession with Pop Culture, and how they affect each other. We occasionally bring on guests to flesh out some dimension on a subject or issue, and generally like to tell the world that there's a lot more going on in PNG than the culture. Join us fortnightly and listen to what we've been up to, and the issues we've been facing with life in PNG.
