In our latest podcast, Thai theatre critic Amitha Amranand gives a comprehensive overview of the media landscape in Thailand, discussing the impact of the political and legal system on the arts and the paradoxical freedom that arts journalists have in the country.
Amitha is a Bangkok-based writer, translator, and teacher. She is currently a contributing theatre critic for the Bangkok Post and sits on the artistic board of the Bangkok International Performing Arts Meeting (BIPAM).
