Con-Air

EState Owned Enterprise Minister Erick Thohir has had a big start to his tenure. Garuda’s woes are only worsening after CEO Ari Askhara is busted after smuggling Harley Davidson parts into the country on a brand-new plane. Now he’s set to be pushed out while the board of directors are next. Elsewhere, little to celebrate during this week’s World Anti-Corruption Day where President Jokowi snubbed the KPK. But it’s not all bad news — Southeast Asia Games, ending in the Philippines this week, has plenty of heart-warming moments.

Burned Promises

Hayat and Erin begin this week with an update to last week’s suicide bombing attack in Medan. With news of dozens of suspects rounded up, the pair look at what this says about the state of terrorism today. Meanwhile, the haze has cleared but the impact of this year’s fires in Kalimantan and Sumatra will impact the planet for years to come. Indonesia isn’t ready to let go of the palm oil industry just yet as the Trade Ministry gears up for a fight against European Union regulation. And Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan is in strife again, this time walking back on a key election promise. But it’s not all bad. This week’s hero is an example to us all.

Burned Promises

The Plantation Murders

Not much good news this week, with Hayat and Erin taking a look at recent violent deaths of environmental defender in Sumatra. Police investigations are continuing into the murders of local community advocates Maraden Sianipar and Martua Siregar while there is a sliver of hope that the legacy of slain lawyer Golfrid Siregar will be pursued. Meanwhile, a suicide bombing in Medan is still developing. Still! There’s some promising news on saving the rhinos and the return of Basuki ‘Ahok’ Tjahaja Purnama — not to mention a bit of Rizieq Shihab schadenfreude.

The Plantation Murders

Game of Cronies

EHayat and Erin are back this week with a quick news round-up before jumping into the final cabinet. One year on from the JT610 Lion Air crash, investigators have given us a clearer idea of what went so wrong. It isn’t the only major report this week after Komnas HAM slammed the Jakarta Police for brutality during May’s anti-President Jokowi protests. Meanwhile, over in South Sulawesi a handful of police are placed on administrative leave after the deaths of two university students in last month’s protests. Hayat and Erin check in with their predictions for the new cabinet and Hayat flags a few faces to keep an eye on.

Wanted: New Ministers. Failed Candidates Preferred.

Hayat and Erin are back right as cabinet speculation reaches fever pitch. President Joko Widodo’s second term formally began Sunday with his inauguration — all reviews say it paled compared to the festival of 2014 — but it’s all about the new cabinet to be named Wednesday. Who’s in, who’s out and what does it mean for the years ahead? Also, a look back at the student-led demonstrations in recent weeks and the terror-linked stabbing of Minister Wiranto.

Wanted: New Ministers. Failed Candidates Preferred.

Death of a President... and Good Legacy

Hayat and Erin kick off the episode with the sad news of the passing of former president BJ Habibie. While he served for less than two years as Indonesia’s third president, his legacy is far larger. But is it being forgotten already? Habibie championed a free press and gender equality in a post-Suharto Indonesia, two areas seemingly under attack by legal revisions set to pass the House next week. Some President Joko Widodo stans are moving early though, taking on Tempo. Elsewhere, haze is blanketing much of Western Indonesia and the region, but #sawitbaik, right?

Death of a President... and Good Legacy

Let's Ride

And we’re back with season two! With the world’s biggest one-day elections behind us, Indonesia dan Lain-Lain is ready for another season of going deep into Indonesia’s most pressing policy debates, breaking news and conversations with fascinating guests. Today we kick off with haze, the so-called national car project and, of course, the moving of the capital from Jakarta to Kalimantan. And just a quick note, with a CV as illustrious as President Jokowi’s it’s easy to get it mixed up. At one point we say he was the governor of Solo, which of course does not exist and he was famously the mayor. Apologies for any confusion.

Of Dogs and Rhinos

EThis week Hayat and Erin kick off with another PR bummer for palm oil — does it fund terrorism? The police allege it does after nabbing the head of terror group Jemaah Islamiyah. Keeping with an environmental theme they look at the struggle to find new homes for the dwindling Sumatran and Javan rhinos as well as Jakarta’s rancid air quality. Emerging blasphemy cases, reclamation developments and a shoddy band-aid fix for flight ticket prices, can Indonesia catch a break this week!

Of Dogs and Rhinos

Sorry for the Wait

ELebaran is over for another year and we’re back in the studio! While the country waits for the Constitutional Court to make its final decision in the presidential election challenge, Hayat explains why Ma’ruf Amin’s road to the vice-presidency could be in trouble. Elsewhere, a series of big earthquakes shakes Eastern Indonesia, a frightening fire in a Sumatran home factory reveals shocking flaws in the labour system and who wants to fly to Bandung?

Sorry for the Wait

The Key is Impunity

In the last episode before the Lebaran break, Erin is joined in the studio again with Gentle Media and Asumsi’s Lisa Siregar. This week they host a very special guest, Human Rights Watch’s Indonesia researcher Andreas Harsono. Pak Andreas has spent years studying and monitoring Indonesia’s human rights situation and has just published his book Race, Islam and Power looking at political violence in post-Suharto Indonesia. He breaks down what happened last week and how the riots fit into Indonesia’s long history of violence.
