Center for Strategic and International Studies

China has emerged as one of the 21st century’s most consequential nations, making it more important than ever to understand how the country is governed. True to the name Pekingology, or the study of the political behavior of the People’s Republic of China, this podcast aims to unpack the behavior of the Chinese Communist Party and implications these actions have within China and for U.S.-China relations. Jude Blanchette, the Freeman Chair in China Studies at CSIS, is joined by various experts to analyze the activities of the Chinese governing system and how these impact the complex relationships relating to China.

  • Excellent, recommended.

    Episode notes always start with “ In this episode of Pekingology, Freeman Chair Jude Blanchette is joined by “ which is not useful because usually only first two lines appear so need to open up the note to know what is happening. Suggest start with guest name and topic.

  • Pros: informative. Cons: unnecessarily convoluted.

    I get lots from this show and love the choice in guests. I feel I’m getting read into the most current academic discourse on China. more

  • Excellent, recommended.

    Excellent content, but audio quality -especially the host - is poor. The cause is not the microphone. A simple production trick that might help: reduce even eliminate echo by having a towel over your head.
