This dynamic collaboration will see the witty and ever-curious Cyrus Broacha embark on a whirlwind adventure through the eclectic city-state of Singapore, uncovering hidden gems, experiencing local culture, and rediscovering his zest for life along the way.
The collaboration with the Singapore Tourism Board offers an insider's view of the city's diverse culture, rich history, and modern marvels. The eight-episode podcast follows Cyrus as he explores iconic Singaporean landmarks, hidden gems and meets fascinating Singaporean personalities. Each episode promises a vibrant mix of humor, discovery, and “Made in Singapore" moments, from nature reserves to culinary delights and traditional crafts to modern innovations.
Join Cyrus Broacha as he explores the breathtaking Jewel Changi Airport’s lush Shiseido Forest Valley and the must-be-seen-to-be-believed HSBC Rain Vortex, eats his way through the awe-inspiring Gardens By The Bay, and discovers the aromatic world of Haji Lane’s Sifr Aromatics, where the magic of crafting memories through scent comes alive. The podcast also delves into the unique fusion of traditional Chinese medicine and craft cocktail culture at Synthesis Bar, and an exploration of the art of gin-making at Brass Lion Gin Distillery – an experience where Cyrus crafts his bottle for a distinctively Singaporean souvenir. Cyrus steps into the world of indulgence, Singapore-style, creating his own delectable chocolates at Bucket Chocolaterie. The journey continues with a dive into nocturnal secrets through the Night Luge experience and a captivating trip down history at the Intan Museum.
‘Cyrus Says’ has been IVM Podcasts’ longest running podcast, where Cyrus Broacha, the renowned comic and entertainment personality, gives his take on all kinds of topics. Commenting on his sojourn, Cyrus Broacha shared “The Singapore of today surprised me! Haji Lane’s aroma got me hooked, HyperDrive sent my adrenaline soaring, and crafting my own gin at Brass Lion Distillery. It was a truly sensory adventure through a city pulsates with life, innovation, and hidden delights. Join me and discover the new Singapore that’s left me wanting more.”
IVM Podcasts- Pratilipi head Amit Doshi commented on the partnership “Podcasts can be a great companion to every kind of brand. It is heartening to know that the Singapore Tourism Board saw in us the potential of the kind of insight we could bring to the destination. We aimed to cull out great episodes that do not conventionally showcase Singapore. Audiences will understand that once they tune into the podcast”
Singapore Tourism Board regional director, India Middle East South Asia Africa Markus Tan said: “We are always seeking new ways to engage with the Indian traveller and showcase Singapore’s evolving destination offerings through immersive storytelling. Partnering IVM Podcasts and Cyrus Says was a natural choice to highlight how Singapore transforms the travel experience from ordinary to extraordinary, as Cyrus himself experienced.”
The podcast’s first episode was dropped on 10 February 2024.
