A heroine nine-feet tall, with yard-long breasts, and a voice like a temple bell riding an elephant into battle? There is a lot going on in episode 14, Ba Trieu and the Uprising of 248 AD.
Ba or Lady Trieu was a 3rd century Vietnamese warrior who managed, for a time, to resist the Chinese state of Eastern Wu during its occupation of Vietnam. We also present a correction about the "cetbang," or the breech-loading canons mentioned in episode 13, Dyah Gitarja and the Majapahit Empire.
Still joining us this month are the History of Colonisation podcast -- @hoc_pod is hosted by Nanyang Technological University student, Fidellithy -- and @tuktukbox, a specialty food retailer offering curated Southeast Asian boxes and products to US and Canada subscribers.
