    Taiwan explainer: how it became a global flashpoint

    Why would China want to spark World War Three over Taiwan?   

    US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan has stoked fears the island could become the flash point for World War Three. China claims the island as a renegade province, despite Taiwan functionally acting as an independent nation for 70 years. We’re joined by Jennifer Hsu, a researcher at the Lowy Institute who was born in Taiwan.  

    In today’s Briefing, we dive into why China cares so much about Taiwan, and why Australia should too.

Tomsimak ,

Love my daily briefing

I love the pace and structure of the show. I tend to not be interested to the Saturday interviews, but the weekday episodes are the way to go!

Average

An ok enough podcast, except that Tilley is quite clearly pretending to be progressive, his comments show him up. Change him out for someone better please.

bigfoth ,
