New Mandala will soon launch a new series of vodcasts and podcasts similar to our earlier “Thailand in Crisis” and “Burma Votes 2010”. This new offering is a three-part series titled “р╕Кр╕▓р╕Хр╕┤ р╕ир╕▓р╕кр╕Щр╕▓ р╕Юр╕гр╕░р╕бр╕лр╕▓р╕Бр╕йр╕▒р╕Хр╕гр╕┤р╕вр╣М: Nation, Religion, King”. It deals with some of the foundational issues in Thai politics, culture, economy and society today. I interview a wide range of expert commentators including Pasuk Phongpaichit, Chris Baker, Andrew Walker, Daungyewa Utarasint, Anders Engvall, Saran Santisart, Des Ball, Tyrell Haberkorn, Charnvit Kasetsiri, Pavin Chachavalpongpun and Patrick Jory.

The first episode in the new series, “Nation”, will go live tomorrow.
