AIC In Conversation podcast now available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify

The AIC In Conversation podcast was today launched by the Australia-Indonesia Centre across a number of popular podcast applications.

An audio version of the Centre’s new In Conversation webinar series, the podcast is available for subscription on the following platforms:

Already, two In Conversation podcast episodes are available to subscribers. The first details the economic impact of COVID-19 in Indonesia and features panelists Professor Nunung Nuryartono (Dean of Faculty of Economics and Management, Institut Pertanian Bogor), Andhyta Firselly Utami (Co-Founder, Think Policy Society) and Kevin Evans (Indonesia Director, AIC).

The second episode focuses on Indonesian and Australian and Indonesian public health responses to the pandemic and includes Dr Sudirman Nasir (Senior Lecturer, Universitas Hasanuddin), Dr Yulia Sofiatin (Lecturer, Universitas Padjadjaran) and Professor Charles Gilks (Dean of the School of Public Health, University of Queensland).

The AIC’s Helen Brown, Head of Communications and Outreach, acts as moderator on both episodes.

“Our new podcast is another channel in which the Centre provides access to leading experts, interdisciplinary insights and intersectoral perspectives on Australia, Indonesia and their relations with the Indo-Pacific region,” AIC Executive Director Dr Eugene Sebastian said.

“Each episode focuses on the bilateral relations, tackling issues of mutual interest and broader regional challenges in a post-COVID world,” Dr Sebastian continued.

Two additional In Conversation podcast episodes will be available later in the week. The first, an exploration of the regional trade impact of COVID-19, is scheduled for 13 May and includes Dr Stephanie Fahey (CEO, Austrade), Andrew Parker (Partner & leader of Asia Practice, PwC Australia) and James Castle (Founder, Castle Asia).

The second, an analysis of government responses to the pandemic, will take place on 14 May and features Sally Capp (Lord Mayor, City of Melbourne) and Ridwan Kamil (Governor, Province of West Java).

Registrations for both upcoming webinars remain open.
