A variety of sources are used in researching and producing the show. As I have been a student of Cambodian history for more than a decade now some things are just ‘in there’, and I would be hard pressed to tell you the exact source. That being said, the items below (while not a complete list) have been of great help in structuring and substantiating the content in the podcast so far.
