    Komando In The Ring

    Coming from two generations of high ranking military leaders, Dimas grew up wanting nothing else than to become a soldier too. But it was only when Dimas moved to Hawaii in the late 1990s that he unexpectedly found a way to channel his patriotic side. 
    In this episode, we follow a story of the first Indonesian to become a pro wrestler in the U.S. Donning an army character from Indonesia, Dimas recounts the serendipitous events that led him to become a wrestler, coming to terms with his family who were adamantly against his childhood dream, and an unexpected turn in his career after 9/11 happened.

    The Tiger Cubs

    The Tiger Cubs

    Election is a contest with a winner, but what if the only way to "win" is to make sure "nobody" wins? 

    Since Indonesia began the process to hold election concurrently in 2015, there have been more and more cases of empty ballot/empty box, only a single candidate race. For some, the empty box is the expression of choice. In this episode, we follow the story of a man who felt cheated in an election process and his intricate tactics and calculated strategies which eventually resulted in a first for Indonesia's democracy. 

    This is not a story of who's right or wrong, this is a story about just how far people would go when they feel cheated in an election. This is the story of the Tiger Cubs.

    The Making of a National Food Culture (Part 2)

    The Making of a National Food Culture (Part 2)

    Though Indomie is one of Indonesian's most iconic brands, its true origin is largely misunderstood. As Indonesians began to accept wheat-based products as part of their daily diet, instant noodles manufacturers flourished--beginning with Supermi. But it was Soeharto's masterplan with establishing Bogasari, a flour milling facility, that paved the way for Liem Sioe Liong (a.k.a Soedono Salim) to come onto the instant noodle scene. With the help of Soeharto and his institutions, Salim wrestled control over the Indomie brand from the inventor and eventually dominate the entire instant noodle market in Indonesia until today. This is the true but unfortunate story of the original founder of Indomie and how he steadily, but unwillingly, disappeared from history.

    The Making of a National Food Culture (Part 1)

    How did instant noodles become a staple food for Indonesians? How did Indomie become Indonesia’s most iconic brand? Through the lens of two generations, we trace back the series of accidental events; from historic famine, a move for political and national stability, nepotism, geopolitics, the letters of desperation, to the legal battle over Indonesia’s most iconic brand and a forgotten founder that history should acknowledge.
