Ben Kheng: The Sam Willows, The BenZi Project, and the Singapore Sports School

Ben Kheng is one of the most all-rounded talents in the creative industry in Singapore. Most of us would likely recognise Ben as one-fourth of The Sam Willows, which is one of the most critically- and commercially-acclaimed English pop music acts in Singapore. But depending on your favourite media platform, you might also know him as a radio DJ, actor, comedian, or... national swimmer. If you spend time in Ben's company, you'll also realise that he's one of the sharpest minds in the media industry. In this episode, you'll get a flavor of the business acumen that has gotten him to the top of the game. Ben has allied that acumen with a special determination that was likely honed from his years as a swimmer in the Singapore Sports School; listen out for how he made his way from the pool to the stage.

Preetipls: Singapore's #1 Podcast Guest

Preetipls has at various times been Singapore's #1 fashion influencer, #1 daughter, and now apparently #1 podcast guest. She famously scored E8 for her O-Level Mandarin, yet Mandarin is at the heart of her burgeoning career. Her comedy and music make astute observations about our society and are at once irreverent and tongue in cheek. But in today's episode, we find out more about Preeti Nair - the person behind the character. Preeti has truly had to earn her success - through humour, she has overcome massive disappointment in her professional, personal, and academic lives. It all means that her comedy is comedy with a conscience, and so in this episode - much like in her videos - get ready to simultaneously laugh at and question your personal beliefs.

Charlie Lim: Time/Space, Check-Hook, and... We Are Singapore

Charlie Lim is one of the most distinct voices in the English pop music scene in Singapore. Intricate, versatile, and confessional - his music sets the mood whatever the mood. Charlie joins us in this episode to give us fascinating insight into his journey, which has taken him from studying music in Melbourne to selling out shows at the Esplanade. Along the way, he has released two albums - Time/Space and Check-Hook - and even reworked "We Are Singapore" for the National Day Parade in 2018. But much like his music, Charlie is incredibly thoughtful and circumspect about his success. Despite being one of the leading lights in the music industry in Singapore, Charlie is very much like the rest of us - he still questions the meaning of his success. So strap yourselves in for a conversation that takes in hope, apprehension, and happiness in equal measure. Visit boldbutgoldsg.com (http://boldbutgoldsg.com/) for more!

Zachary Ibrahim: Theatre actor, movie star, nocturnal animal whisperer

Zachary Ibrahim is one of the freshest voices in the theatre scene in Singapore. If you've ever watched him onstage, you'll know that he is captivating, versatile, and emotive in equal parts. No wonder then that he has acted in multiple productions with Pangdemonium, including Fat Pig, for which he was nominated for a Life Theatre Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2015. Away from the stage, he also lit up our screens in the 2017 movie Wonder Boy. But Zach wasn't always destined to be an actor; he didn't go to acting school, for one, and also spent time as a show presenter at the Night Safari. His journey in showbiz has been as entertaining as his actual work - and in this episode of Bold but Gold, he gives us some wonderful insight into his journey.

Shaun Seow: Bass guitarist for JJ Lin, Wang Leehom, and more

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a professional musician? To tour with the biggest mandopop acts? To be in demand by JJ Lin, Wang Leehom, Jackie Cheung, and others?

Humble, unassuming, and introspective - Shaun defies all expectations of a rock musician. He has some wonderful stories to tell, including one about playing music around a campfire with JJ Lin...
