My guest this week is a former professional Muay Thai fighter, manager of her family-run Muay Thai gym here in Bangkok, Luktupfah, and host of the Jade Marrisa podcast.
We touch on Muay Thai but most of our conversation revolves around the challenges of being a "luk krueng" – or mixed-race child – in Thailand.
It was a very entertaining and enlightening look at what life is like for someone who is half-Thai half-English and living in Thailand.
I enjoyed it even more so because I have two luk krueng daughters who are going to have to navigate the same waters that Jade herself has been through.
