Staying true to the WTF spirit of this podcast is the outcome of the recent Malaysian election where Barisan Nasional, the right-wing alliance headed by the once-undefeatable Umno party, lost big. With no parties dominating seats in the Malaysian parliament, the country’s government hangs in the balance — and Coconuts KL’s Aminah Farid joins us to shed light on yet another political shitshow in Southeast Asia. Tune in!
