About Banana Q

Hi! Welcome to Banana Q, a Filipino-flavored podcast!

This podcast is hosted by Rey and Dee. Both were born and raised in the Philippines, then moved to Singapore where they became colleagues. They have been Overseas Filipino Workers for over a decade. If you’re interested in their origin story, listen to the Is the OFW Life Worth It? episode.

Rey moved to Tokyo in 2016. It was his childhood dream to be a radio announcer, and this podcast is kind of his way of achieving that.


Dee moved to Hong Kong in the middle of a pandemic. She enjoys writing, taking photographs, and talking to people.


They are both often described by friends as enthusiastic storytellers, so they thought a podcast was a good medium for them to spread their funny and insightful conversations. They aim to answer questions using their own experiences as Filipinos and do not claim to be experts.
