Extreme Khmer Video Podcast

Welcome to what's probably the first video podcast ever in Khmer. The concept is simple: each month (from September to May), our crack team of wacky reporters takes you on the scene in Southeast Asia into the middle of Khmer culture and language.

The language used in the podcasts is meant to be mostly understandable to anyone who's completed at least one year (or SEASSI summer) of Khmer language study. For most episodes, there will be links to additional material for that show (always found on this page), including explanations of vocabulary and grammar and video footage not used in the final edited version of the episode.

If you just want to watch the podcast episodes in all their high-resolution, widescreen glory, go back to the main index page for studykhmer.com and use the controls to play the video of the current episode. Previous episodes (as well as the current episode) can also be found on my YouTube Channel.

If you'd like to download the version of the video right now which will play on your Video iPod, right-click on the link below for the episode you want (if you're using Internet Explorer, choose "Save Target As;" if you're using Mozilla Firefox, choose "Save Link As").

If you want to subscribe to the RSS feed of the podcast (via feedburner.com), so you can manage subsequent podcast episodes in iTunes or whatever software you use, click on the "RSS" button below.

Enjoy, and feel free to send your comments and questions to the website overlord

Extreme Khmer Video Podcast and all features on studykhmer.com are paid for out of my own pocket. Besides the income I get from selling the textbooks, this site is essentially a labor of love. My many hours of work on this site are not compensated by anyone...if you feel so moved, donations are always appreciated!
