First of a semi-regular series of episodes looking at news around the Asia/Pacific region. This time round having a look at everything from the catastrophic flooding across South Asia, to the ‘failed coup’ in Tonga, the moronic constitutional crisis in Australia, Uber strike in Indonesia, and more still.

Opening track is System by Petrol Girls, from the AFAICH benefit compilation Prosecute The Arms Dealers.

Postscript notes:
Somewhat late due to some recording mishaps, illness, and equipment problems. For that reason this is a short solo episode. On the news contained within, in the less than an hour after uploading this episode the death toll from the flooding in India has risen after a building collapse in Mumbai.
