Beyond Year Zero: Cambodia Then and Now

Beyond Year Zero: Cambodia Then and Now


Welcome to Beyond Year Zero: A podcast about Cambodia then and now! This podcast explores the dark and difficult history of the Khmer Rouge regime, and asks what effects and impact did the Pol Pot period have on the dynamic and vibrant society of Cambodia today? Taking a thematic approach, Beyond Year Zero draws on interviews with practitioners and notaries from leading communities of practice in contemporary Cambodia to explore the relationship between history, society, violence, and – ultimately – human nature. Themes explored include the arts, gender, land, and many more besides. So please join me on my journey into the dark heart of this troubled nation’s past, it’s captivating present, and it’s bright and contested future. Join me on my journey to go beyond year zero.
