Synopsis: Each month, The Straits Times examines the ins and outs of pop culture in the Asian entertainment and Hollywood scene. #PopVultures host Jan Lee goes all in on the Adam Levine cheating scandal. The frontman of pop band Maroon 5 found himself raked over the coals on the Internet, after an Instagram model named Sumner Stroh went on TikTok and claimed she had an affair with Levine. The bombshell allegation came just four days after Levine's wife, former Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo, announced on Instagram that the couple is expecting their third child. Stroh's expose came with receipts as her TikTok video came attached with screenshots of direct messages (DMs) Levine sent her on Instagram - including one where he asks if he can name his unborn child after Sumner. Jan Lee runs down the ins and outs of the scandal, including claims that Levine and Stroh have made regarding their relationship, and discusses the reaction to the scandal and what else makes this case interesting.  Highlights (tap/click above): 1:09 The Adam Levine scandal explained - What happened? Who said what? 11:45 Are Sumner Stroh's claims believable or plausible? 20:05 The culture's reaction to Sumner Stroh and whether it is justified 29:01 The consequences of famous older men sliding into the DMs of much younger, social media-savvy women.

Synopsis: The Straits Times analyses Singapore's latest news and announcements. One law has been talked about by many Singaporeans for months - Section 377A of the Penal Code, which criminalises sex between men. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the National Day Rally on Aug 21 announced that the Government will repeal Section 377A, adding that the Constitution would be amended to allow Parliament to define the institution of marriage. Many people are unfamiliar with the process of how this is to be done and why this approach is being taken. The Straits Times explains how a law is repealed, how the Constitution can be amended, and why the Government is taking this approach.

Synopsis: Every first and third Wednesday of the month, The Straits Times helps you make sense of health matters that affect you. A white paper on the new national preventive care strategy known as Healthier SG is out. The Ministry of Health has submitted it to Parliament and it will be debated in October 2022. The plan is to launch it in the second half of 2023, when those aged 60 and above will be invited to enrol with a primary care clinic. In the next two years following that, those aged 40-59 will be invited to do so.  With Healthier SG, the government will place greater emphasis on preventive care than on sick care. It's a major transformation of the healthcare system, driven by capitation funding, that is aimed at helping the rapidly ageing population here to stay healthy longer. In this episode, ST senior health correspondent Joyce Teo speaks to associate Professor Jeremy Lim, the director of the Leadership Institute for Global Health Transformation at the NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health. Highlights (click/tap above): 2:20 Critical for family doctors to enrol in system; inertia the biggest enemy for public 3:13 The first cohort of 60 and above: Why drug subsidies to bring GP pricing closer to that of polyclinics will be attractive 6:53 Make better use of Healthier SG care plan, with digital tools healthhub.sg and the Healthy 365 app 9:00 Free nationally-recommended health screenings and vaccinations, including flu jabs, with co-payment benefits resulting in actual cash savings 9:39 Prof Lim on why this is “very real free money” to help individuals live healthier lives, and his personal advice once enrolment opens Produced by: Joyce Teo (joyceteo@sph.com.sg),  Ernest Luis and  Eden Soh Edited by: Eden Soh Follow Health Check Podcast episodes out here every first and third Wednesday of the month: Channel: https://str.sg/JWaN Apple Podcasts: https://str.sg/JWRX Spotify: https://str.sg/JWaQ Google Podcasts: https://str.sg/J6Wv  SPH Awedio app: https://www.awedio.sg/ Website: http://str.sg/stpodcasts Feedback to: podcast@sph.com.sg Read Joyce Teo's stories: https://str.sg/JbxN --- Discover ST's special edition podcasts: Singapore's War On Covid: https://str.sg/wuJa The Unsolved Mysteries of South-east Asia: https://str.sg/wuZ2 Stop Scams: https://str.sg/wuZB Invisible Asia: https://str.sg/wuZn --- Discover more ST podcast series: Asian Insider: https://str.sg/JWa7 Green Pulse: https://str.sg/JWaf In Your Opinion: https://str.sg/w7Qt Your Money & Career: https://str.sg/wB2m SG Extra: https://str.sg/wukR #PopVultures: https://str.sg/JWad ST Sports Talk: https://str.sg/JWRE Bookmark This!: https://str.sg/JWas Lunch With Sumiko: https://str.sg/J6hQ Discover ST Podcasts: http://str.sg/stpodcasts Discover BT Podcasts: https://bt.sg/pcPL Follow our shows then, if you like short, practical podcasts! #healthcheckSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Synopsis: Every first and third Monday of the month, The Straits Times analyses the beat of the changing environment, from biodiversity conservation to climate change. The COP27 climate change conference (Nov 6-18) is just two months away, and delegates from almost 200 nations are expected to gather in Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt to work out how the world can avoid the harshest impacts of climate change. This year's conference will take place on the back of a spate of extreme weather events that have played out around the world, including South-east Asia. In this episode, environment correspondent Audrey Tan and climate change editor David Fogarty speak with Mr Sandeep Rai, a senior advisor for Global Climate Adaptation Policy from WWF Singapore, an environmental non-profit, on three topics on the table at COP27 that are especially relevant for South-east Asia. This includes how the region can adapt better to climate change, where money to adapt would come from, and what happens when climate change causes losses and damages despite adaptation efforts.  Highlights (click/tap above): 2:49 What do recent disasters tell us about South-east Asia's ability to handle climate-driven disasters?  7:30 Adaptation can be costly.

Synopsis: Every first and third Monday of the month, The Straits Times analyses the beat of the changing environment, from biodiversity conservation to climate change. The world is now at an inflexion point when it comes to energy. The Russian war on Ukraine is worsening the global energy crisis, highlighting the need for countries to safeguard energy security. At the same time, humanity's long reliance on fossil fuels is having devastating impacts on societies. So how will countries deal with this situation? Will our fossil fuel use go up, or down?  As countries deliberate on this issue, one fuel type has come under the spotlight: Natural gas. This is the same fuel that powers Singapore, and is considered cleaner than coal and oil since it produces less planet-warming carbon dioxide when burnt.

Synopsis: Every first and third Monday of the month, The Straits Times analyses the beat of the changing environment, from biodiversity conservation to climate change. The world is now at an inflexion point when it comes to energy. The Russian war on Ukraine is worsening the global energy crisis, highlighting the need for countries to safeguard energy security. At the same time, humanity's long reliance on fossil fuels is having devastating impacts on societies. So how will countries deal with this situation? Will our fossil fuel use go up, or down?  As countries deliberate on this issue, one fuel type has come under the spotlight: Natural gas.

Extraordinary Attorney Woo, fronted by actress Park Eun-bin, tells the tale of a rookie lawyer on the autism spectrum while Your World In Mine depicts an adult with an intellectual disability.  While these portrayals have been hailed for its heartwarming stories and centering the experiences of those usually sidelined in mainstream narratives, there are some who have doubts about whether these series are truly helpful to those in the neurodivergent community.

Synopsis: Every fourth Friday of the month, The Straits Times' US bureau chief Nirmal Ghosh presents Asian views of the United States. Newly elected Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr will soon visit Singapore and Indonesia, and probably the United States, before the end of 2022  – providing clues as to how he will navigate the increasingly dangerous space of the US-China rivalry in which his country, as a US ally, is a potential frontline state. The signs are a departure from the truculent style of former President Rodrigo Duterte, notorious for sniping at the US and seemingly veering closer to China. What does the Philippines expect of the United States from now on? In this episode, Nirmal Ghosh hosts two guest experts.

Synopsis: Every fourth Friday of the month, The Straits Times' US bureau chief Nirmal Ghosh presents Asian views of the United States. Newly elected Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr will soon visit Singapore and Indonesia, and probably the United States, before the end of 2022  – providing clues as to how he will navigate the increasingly dangerous space of the US-China rivalry in which his country, as a US ally, is a potential frontline state. The signs are a departure from the truculent style of former President Rodrigo Duterte, notorious for sniping at the US and seemingly veering closer to China. What does the Philippines expect of the United States from now on? In this episode, Nirmal Ghosh hosts two guest experts. One is Marites Vitug, long-time investigative journalist, editor at large of the media organization Rappler, and author of among others, the book “Rock Solid” on the case on the South China Sea, that the Philippines won against China in 2016.   The other is Richard Heydarian, political commentator, columnist and incoming senior lecturer at the University of the Philippines.

Synopsis: Every second and fourth Friday of the month, The Straits Times' opinion editor Grace Ho takes a hard look at political and social issues of the day with her expert guests. In this episode, she looks at why the Selective En bloc Redevelopment Scheme (Sers) exercise for a few Housing Board blocks of flats in Ang Mo Kio attracted controversy, especially after elderly residents found out that they had to pay up to $100,000 to move to a replacement flat of the same size. Several steps have been taken since then to support the residents. In the studio to help make sense of Sers is Sing Tien Foo, Professor of Real Estate and director of Institute of Real Estate and Urban Studies at National University of Singapore.
