  • Informative fun and warm hearted

    I initially found the podcast on the Apple App where I listened this and half dozen other episodes. They offer rich information about today’s China and the world around it, through the interviews of long time “China watchers” who provide not just expertise but also a mixture of perspectives, all nicely produced and fun to listen to. Thank you!

  • Accessible and informative

    I’ve been listening to this for 18 months and it’s such a pleasure. Cindy is an engaging host who never gets in the way of the experts. When anyone makes it sound easy you know they are very skilled.

  • Great insight on China

    This is a wonderful podcast, there is so little good information on China available to us and Cindy’s brilliant narrative journey through topics is super. I haven’t seen my brother and his family for 3 years now and it helps to get an image of where he lives.

  • An in-depth rapid education!

    I’ve been racing through as many podcasts as possible after hearing Cindy speak in person. What I have enjoyed is the range of experts that are brought in, with Cindy as our guide. As a relative novice on Chinese politics and culture, I feel I’ve learned a lot. The context used on names and historical events allows us to quickly find a way in to the fascinating analysis which is being offered each week on big topics which rest upon great complexity. more
