Feature: Empires – VNG

We’ve featured Globe Telecom and Alibaba, and I narrated both of these series for the 1 Up Media podcast Empires. For our third series, we go to Vietnam, where we explore the rapid rise of a company often referred to as the “Tencent of Vietnam,” VNG Corporation. This ride is a four-part journey, with a interview to cap things off on the fifth episode.

If this sounds like something you’d like to journey you’d like to go on, please feel free to click through. Enjoy the ride!

Feature: Empires – Alibaba

I previously posted about the series on Globe Telecom I narrated for the 1 Up Media podcast Empires, and now I’m sharing the next one – this time about Alibaba. It’s a five-part series this time around, with an interview after to bring the count to six.
