Episode 77: The Serpent


Welcome To The Party Pal casts its gaze towards Bangkok, Thailand in an episode that explores The Serpent, a British crime drama serial developed by Mammoth Screen. The eight-part limited series is a co-production between BBC One and Netflix and is based on the crimes of serial killer Charles Sobhraj, who murdered young tourists between 1975 and 2000. The series stars Tahar Rahim in the lead role as Sobhraj. To heighten this examination of The Serpent, your host of this episode of WTTPP, Christian Niedan, is joined by Evan Fox. Fox is a veteran Foreign Service Officer for the U.S. Department of State — currently working in Bangkok, Thailand, with previous stints in Vietnam, The Philippines, and Bangladesh. He has traveled widely in South and East Asia, including two consecutive second place finishes in Cambodia’s Angkor Wat half-marathon in 2010 and 2011. Evan’s unique insight into the customs and history of Southeast Asia heighten an episode that lauds a season of a gripping series to one that also celebrates the intricacies and wonders of Thailand.
