    Episode 131: Sightseeing on Timor

    Episode 131: Sightseeing on Timor

    Here is the first episode of the podcast for 2024. This is the first of a two-part series on one of Southeast Asia's easternmost islands, Timor. In fact, it is so far east that it looks more like a place in the South Pacific, than part of Southeast Asia. The island is also poltically divided; the west half of the island belongs to Indonesia, while the east half is the independent nation of East Timor, or Timor Leste. In this episode you will learn what it is like to visit Timor, and the next episode will cover the island's complicated history.Do you think you would like to become a podcaster on Blubrry? Click here for the details on joining.

    Episode 129: Sumba, the Forgotten Island

    I started working on Episode #129 of the podcast in the middle of August, but was interrupted in early September by illness. Now I have recovered enough to finish the episode, so here it is. This time we visit Sumba, an island in eastern Indonesia that you probably haven't heard of, because it is really remote and not visited much, compared with the other islands. Listen and enjoy!Do you think you would like to become a podcaster on Blubrry? Click here for the details on joining.

Amazing

Excited to have stumbled on this thanks to this knowledgeable man being my driver tonight. Incredible!

Hope this leads to more

Given the sparse podcast content around Southeast Asian history, I really enjoy listening to these well-researched episodes. I'm always eager for more but would like an additional perspective outside the Western one that Charles presents. I hope the presence of this podcast and Charles' obvious passion for the subject inspires more history podcasts for this region!
