Suspicious one star ratings
Good objective series, very interesting. Don’t know what that horn in ep 4 was about, very annoying
Why is episode 3 unavailable? Hmmm
Very strange that ep 4 is available.
Love this kind of journalism
I enjoy listening to this, and really appreciate author’s approach and honesty.
However it leaves me puzzled each time genocide and apartheid is mentioned while completely ignoring crimes being committed today by the state of Israel. What China is doing is not unprecedented or isolated.
