This week we have on PhD Candidate B.K. Williams, who talks to us about the history of Indonesia after the Second World War. If you're like me, you probably can't keep your Sukarnos and your Suhartos straight. But B.K. helps us look at the rich story of war, independence, repression, and development. With a walk-on part from Mr. Richard Nixon. Both me and B.K. had colds, so there is unfortunately some coughing this episode.

Interested in more by B.K.? Check out his piece in the Washington Post!
