As an American, Shawn’s link to Indonesia began when he was a foreign student at the University of Indonesia in 1997. He witnessed and documented first-hand the pro-democracy movement and the beginning of the Reformasi period, which brought violent street demonstrations, the occupation of the parliament building by students and President Soeharto’s resignation. These events cemented his interest in Indonesian politics ever since.
He returned once again to Indonesia in the early 2000s working as a political/business risk consultant, advising MNCs on government policy, regulations and other issues for over 13 years. The goal of this not-for-profit podcast program is to increase awareness and understanding of politics and culture among English speaking audience.
