How We Started
Seven Million Bikes started in May 2019 as A Saigon Podcast. Inspired by the people that live in Saigon from all walks of life and backgrounds host, Niall Mackay, wanted to know more about his fellow Saigoneers stories, their experiences and get tips on living in Saigon to share with listeners.
Recorded from his living room, it quickly gained a following in Saigon, across Vietnam and overseas and in 2021 was renamed A Vietnam Podcast.
Seven Million Bikes has now expanded to organising regular comedy shows in Saigon, and other cities in Vietnam as well as other events.
Niall, originally from Glasgow, Scotland, has lived in Saigon since 2016 with his wife, Adrie, and the Seven Million Bikes mascot, Biscuit. You might even hear Biscuit snoring in the background in earlier episodes!
