    Bridget Welsh: “Very Possible” That PAS Could Govern Malaysia One Day 
    Bridget Welsh is an independent American scholar who has lived in (and analysed) ASEAN and Malaysian social, political and economic developments for over three-and-a-half decades, writing books and advising companies and NGOs how to navigate one of the world’s most important and exciting regions. 
    Welsh's views on Malaysia and ASEAN’s future are explosive and troubling. They are also truthful and nuanced. This could be one of the most important discussions anyone can consume in this era of great change, risk and opportunity. 
    Listen with an open heart and a constructive mind. It might yet help you navigate an uncertain future.

    Luno’s Aaron Tang - The Bitcoin, Crypto Bull Market Has Begun, But It’s Early Days Yet
    The Bitcoin and crypto market is in a clear bull run right now, making it an excellent time to be talking to Aaron Tang, the Regional General Manager of Luno, where he oversees the Malaysian, Singaporean and Indonesian crypto markets for the global cryptocurrency platform.

    Consultant Cardiologist Dr. Suren Thuraisingham - Indians Are at the Highest Risk of Heart Diseases

    Consultant Cardiologist Dr. Suren Thuraisingham - Indians Are at the Highest Risk of Heart Diseases

    This health-related podcast, like my earlier one on cancer with Dr Teo Soo Hwang (see link below) is also a personal one, as I have lost a number of friends and close acquaintances to heart disease in recent months. 
    In some cases, the deaths were shocking, since they happened to seemingly healthy, fit and well-adjusted people. Not at all – at least superficially – that fell within the definition of ‘high-risk’.
    I resolved to attempt to better understand the Whys and Wherefores of heart disease, which meant there was only one person I could speak with: Dr. Suren Thuraisingham, an old family friend from back home in Penang. 
    Dr. Thuraisingham is a very experienced and highly respected cardiologist, having practised medicine in this field since 1990. He very kindly agreed to answer my questions about why even young and seemingly healthy people are dropping dead from heart attacks, among a whole host of related issues, including whether a link exists between Covid vaccinations and heart diseases. 
    (Dr. Thuraisingham is a Consultant Cardiologist at CVSKL (Cardiac Vascular Sentral Kuala Lumpur), an integrated cardiac and vascular hospital in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. He has been a practicing cardiologist since 1990.)
