Great Podcast!

As an American I hadn’t heard of La Trobe University prior to subscribing to Matt Smith’s “Emperors of Rome” podcast series. Looking for more fresh content, I decided to check out La Trobe’s other offerings and have been really pleased with the Asia Rising podcast. Asia wasn’t on my radar as a podcast listener but this podcast got me hooked. The guests on the show are superb. It’s also a real plus to learn about contemporary Asia from a non-American perspective in order to get a more neutral take, or at least one with less posturing. Love the theme music!

Lots of good info

I'm a Yank and thus suffer from an extremely inward-facing and myopic news media, so there aren't a lot of ways for me to learn about the contemporary Asian political landscape. It's been a joy listening to Asia Rising the past few years. I've learned a ton about India under modi, water rights along the Himalayas, the aftemath of the recent Thai coup, and all sorts of other interesting topics. Matt Smith and the various other hosts do well to bring out the best of their many interesting guests. I learn something new everytime I listen, which pleases me to no end. Highly recommended.

The world through their eyes

Asia can be enigmatic for those in the west like myself. This podcasts brings in experts on various topics and really makes the complicated understandable. Very nice production! La Trobe is an Australian university, which gives them a unique perspective and voice.
