The latest episode went up two days ago, and because I was busy in the real world, I didn’t get around to announcing it here until now. I also took an extra day to get the recording and editing finished. The end result is the longest episode this podcast has produced so far, So I think you will find it was worth the wait. For the first time in seven months, we will look at the Philippines. Here you will hear how Spain lost its tight grip on the islands, and the development of Southeast Asia’s first modern nationalist movement. The narrative will cover events in the 1700s and most of the 1800s, and end right before the United States got involved in the Philippines, the topic of the next episode. And for the first time, you will hear my wife make a contribution!
