  • Excellent podcast for anyone more than casually interested in China, its politics, and the future relation between Chinese and Western powers. (Sidenote for the unaware, the podcasts name is a pun on chairman Mao's quotations, colloquially known as the "Little Red Book".) more

  • Quite possibly the best academically informed podcast on China currently in existence. Outstanding analysis, great production, and stand-out hosts. For those who criticize the show for being either too analytical or too journalistic, I hear you. But I personally find that the hosts find a perfect balance between these two extremes that gives birth to something uniquely rewarding through the podcast medium. My only gripe is that they don't release twice as many episodes :)

  • The most interesting insights into China

    Having searched out and listened to loads of China current affairs podcasts, this is the one that I most look forward to new episodes. Wish there were more! Very knowledgeable hosts and guests. This podcast does a good job of being analytical and critical, but without demonstrating strong bias, which is hard to do with China. It does have a clear “Western” viewpoint - but based on thorough understanding and research.
