    Episode 124: Another Look at Bali

    Episode 124: Another Look at Bali

    One of my listeners requested I give equal time to eastern Indonesia, because in the past when I talked about this vast island nation, I concentrated on the big western islands: Java, Sumatra and Borneo. Well, it turns out I'm going to need more than one episode to fulfill that request, so here's the first part in a mini-series on eastern Indonesia. Today we will look at the "Island of the Gods," Bali.Do you think you would like to become a podcaster on Blubrry? Click here for the details on joining.

    Episode 120: Question and Answer Session 4

    Episode 120: Question and Answer Session 4

    Okay, I am back at last! The previous episode of the podcast completed our historical narrative of Southeast Asia. Now for today's episode, I will start answering the questions you have sent me over the past two months. In fact, you sent me so many questions that I will answer some of them in the next episode as well. But I don't mind; thank you for your enthusiastic response!Oh, and one other thing. I got an email from one listener who said the volume on the podcast was too loud. I thought the sound was all right, because no one mentioned it in the past, and when I listen to my own recordings, I don't have to turn the volume almost all the way up, as is the case with some other podcasts. Therefore, with the software I use for the recording, I turned down the microphone volume, from 86 to 70 percent. Drop me a line if you feel strongly about the change, whether you like it or not. And like always, listen and enjoy! Do you think you would like to become a podcaster on Blubrry? Click here for the details on joining.

    Episode 119: The Unconquered Kingdom, One More Time

    To all the listeners of this podcast, I want to thank you for your patience.  I actually started to record this in the third week of January (there is a reference to January early in the episode), but the work was interrupted more than once, for more than a day each time.  Now at last, it is finished and good to go.  This time we finish the series of episodes on recent Southeast Asian history, by looking at events in Thailand, from 2001 to the present.  At the end I tell you about a new icon to give special recognition to the show's donors, and remind you that the next episode will feature your questions.  February is a short month, so if you have any questions, send them to me today!Do you think you would like to become a podcaster on Blubrry? Click here for the details on joining.

Disconnected from my roots ,

Finally…

I’ve been wanting to know more about my country and now realise that in order to understand Indonesia, I must understand Southeast Asia. I really am grateful for this detailed narrative. It is exactly what I was looking for. Charles organises the episodes well. His corny humour makes it all the more unique. Thank you.

Powerful Resource

You don't see much content on the History of Southeast asia. There aren't many documentaries on it as the Roman Empire, and so having a podcast like this by Charles is a godsend! Very well researched, presented, and narrated. Definitely combines entertainment with learning!

History of South East Asia

I started with this series about 6 months ago and have become increasingly engrossed. It is thoroughly prepared, well written and Charles Kimball`s presentation makes it really listenable and enjoyable. Not many history podcasts have been capable of holding my interest as well as this one does. I expect the quality will remain high as the narrative moves into the 1950s and beyond
