One type of podcast guest that’s proved easy to secure in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic is grounded airline cabin crew. Bipolar is a condition that’s often been associated with mad creative geniuses, like Van Gough, Beethoven, Mozart, Theresa May and Carrie Lam. But what if you work as a first class bathroom assistant for a living and don’t have a creative bone in your body? The Agitated Air Stewardess explores the flip side of mania: agitation. It may make you laugh, it may make you cry, as parts of it are incredibly moving. Florence Wong is so absorbing, self-analytical, smart and funny, as well as being one of the nicest guests we’ve had on the show!
The Agitated Air Stewardess originally aired on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show April 16, 2020. The Mental Ideas Podcast, hosted by Sadie Kaye, will be back on the air next Thursday at 2.30pm HKT with a new episode, The Psychopathic Actor.
