  • Guests usually great

    I like that most of the guests actually come from the Global South and bring along all their life experiences. I do think that Eric tends to rely on straw man arguments too often to characterize American discourse about China. It’s more nuanced than he reflects, and it usually sounds like he’s just characterizing the whole right wing of the Republican Party. Most American just don’t think about China that much and most people who do understand that the various issues are really complicated.

  • Usually great

    The climate thing is getting annoying. Eric only visits California and DC and acts like a US expert. He is the arrogant “intellectual” that so many reject. He interrupts guests constantly and even belittles Cobus and Geraud

  • One of the best podcasts on this topic

    If not the very best. And I say that as someone who has worked in China and holds a degree in East Asian regional studies.

  • Some guests…

    Kevin “low carbon, socially inclusive, climate sensitive” Gallagher has become a useless guest. The BU Center’s work used to be interesting but now it is patronizing and annoying to hear the same phrases pushed over and over.
