Lawrence Blair has been an explorer for the past 35 years and is best known for his highly acclaimed TV series, Ring of Fire, which documented he and his late brother's 10-year odyssey throughout the Indonesian Islands-- an exploration that has made the annals of history.
In the 35th episode of SRO Conversations, Lawrence gives us an intimate view of his travels -- including his encounters with the Asmat peoples, who he says are given both the "distinction of cannibals and head hunters"; the discovery of Homo floresiensis on the island of Flores; the discovery of novel species-- from a venomous bird to a vampire moth; and how the loss of animist religions and imposition other religions has led to the destruction of the Indonesia ecosystems.
When asked if he feels as if he has sufficiently explored Indonesia he remarks, "I've only been exploring for 35 years. It would take lifetimes!" Listen to his tales of Indonesia and where he wants Richard Branson to travel to.

The megalithic site of Gunung Padang begins to reveal its secrets
Gunung Padang is a remarkable archaeological region located 120 kilometres south of Jakarta in Indonesia, known for having the largest number of megaliths in the country. It has been the subject of much controversy in recent years as scientific research has suggested that one particular site, consisting of an ancient arrangement of megalithic stones, sits atop a hill that is actually a gigantic, pyramid-shaped tomb, dating back thousands of years. Such conclusions have, unsurprisingly, been met with fierce resistance from the academic and archaeological community. However, according to a report in Jakarta Post, excavation has now revealed an underground room built in prehistoric times, and the team have dated the youngest layer of the site to 5,200 BC.
According to several experts from the Gunung Padang independent and integrated research team (TTRM), the site could potentially be Indonesia’s oldest and most important prehistoric landmark and should be given priority in conservation efforts.
