Welcome to The History of Singapore podcast!
This is a really exciting time! There are so many new sources of Singapore history. Every year, as new sources of history emerge, we find that we keep having to rewrite Singapore history in response to new information.
We need to learn from our past! For example, the best government that Singapore ever had was the PAP government between 1965 and 1975. Why? What did they do well? What did they do poorly? We need to know.
And so, to make my own contribution to our understanding, I have created the History of Singapore podcast, a weekly podcast series about Singapore, our history and our people. I want Singaporeans to have access to more perspectives on our history of our country and our people, and to understand how we got to where we are today.
Over the next year, I am going to tell the story of Singapore’s independence. I hope you will enjoy our journey together.
