The fourth episode in my podcast series went up this morning. For those who haven’t been following this project from the start, I began with an introductory recording, which I called Episode 0; hence Episode 3 is the fourth episode recorded so far.
This episode is about the first Southeast Asian nations larger than a city-state, which appeared roughly two thousand years ago. Special attention is given to Funan, the major state that arose in Cambodia. Then we look at medium-sized states like Dvaravati, Haripunjaya, Pan Pan, Langkasuka, and Tambralinga, which the Mons and Malays founded in present-day Thailand and northern Malaya.
