CHECK OUT an alphabetical listing of all of the people we have talked with since our launch in mid-January 2017.  A click on the name will take your to our video conversation.

We talk with a different person each week, always in a different location.  Our objective is to talk with people who can shed light on the vast opportunities available in Manila, which anyone with an interest can pursue.

We do not look for celebrities who are already well-known.  Instead, we look for interesting, but lesser-known people active across a wide spectrum of interests and careers, people who demonstrate the richness of life in Manila.

If you know someone who would be a great subject for a conversation, please drop us an mail at:  manilapeopleplaces@gmail.com.  Explain to us why this person will be a good subject for coverage.
