bm264 Prachatai – Alternative Media in Thailand

Alternative media is alive and well in Thailand, especially at the offices of Prachatai.com.  I spent the morning with the staff of this Thai alternative news source discussing what the big issues are for Thailand and their experience running such a media organization.

We discuss:

  • The overall media landscape in Thailand
  • Government control, economic influence
  • MY experience with the Royal Anthem
  • Censorship
  • The constitution
  • Labor and Unions
  • Environmentalism in Thailand
  • Funding

Music:

  • Eddie Vedder – Rise
  • Herbie Hancock – Tea Leaf Prophecy

Flattr this!

    Sorry we couldn’t make it to Thailand. Temporal and financial pressures combined against us, as they often do…

    Listening to this podcast I am convinced that you must leave The Netherlands. Your podcasts from there were great but this was on an entirely different level. There are so many places for you to go and stories for you to cover.
