To celebrate the 100th episode of Talking Indonesia, co-hosts Dave McRae, Jemma Purdey, Charlotte Setijadi and Dirk Tomsa come together to revisit some of the major themes of the first 99 episodes. As Indonesia is deep in election mode, they discuss what impact these themes – Islamism, corruption, fake news, economic development, foreign policy, gender – are likely to have on the 17 April elections.


Talking Indonesia would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our listeners and team members, past and present! We’d love you to drop us a line on social media to let us know what your favourite episodes have been, or what you’d like to see in the next 100 episodes of Talking Indonesia.


In 2019, the Talking Indonesia podcast is co-hosted by Dr Jemma Purdey from Deakin University and the Australia-Indonesia Centre, Dr Dave McRae from the University of Melbourne’s Asia Institute, Dr Charlotte Setijadi from Singapore Management University and Dr Dirk Tomsa from La Trobe University.
