During a career of more than a half century spanning Reuters, Newsweek, and The Times on several continents, veteran Scottish journalist James Pringle covered several important developments in Southeast Asia, including wars in Vietnam and Cambodia.

Luke Hunt recently sat down with Pringle at his home in Phnom Penh. The pair discussed history and the future of Southeast Asia, and the prospects for China with Donald Trump as president of the United States. This podcast also addresses the need to give Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi the benefit of the doubt over her handling of the Rohingya crisis and the prospect of simultaneous wars in the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
