It's our 200th episode!!! And we are discussing EPIC topics! In the National Day Rally, PM Lee asserted that it is “entirely baseless” to claim that “Chinese privilege” exists in Singapore; an assertion that eclipsed the rest of the content of his speech. What was that and all the ensuing hoo-hah about? Also, Yale-NUS shocked everyone last Friday by announcing that the school would be merged with NUS’s USP program, effectively closing the school down for good. Students and faculty mourned the decision, while some online commentators rejoiced the shuttering of our first liberal arts college. But what does this decision really mean for all the stakeholders involved?
