It was a great pleasure to meet Endy Bayuni today, chief editor of Jakarta's well known English-language daily, The Jakarta Post (the younger Jakarta Globe is now giving the Post some competition in this market).

As you'll hear in our interview, Endy and I talked about the issue that continues to pre-occupy Indonesia's political class, the resignation of Finance Minister Sri Mulyani. But we went beyond today's headlines to talk about what this means for the rest of President SBY's term. And Bayuni even says that Mulyani will be a promising future presidential candidate.

We also discuss briefly the future of Indonesian journalism, which is facing some familiar challenges.
