This is an excellent podcast on matters in this part of the world .
I’ve learnt so much !
Listening from Australia
The only reason I gave it a four was because I feel like the episodes could be way longer and they have so much more information to give, 20/30 mins doesn’t do it justice and it kind of feels like it’s just rushed through and we are only getting the summary rather the entire story.
This podcast is amazing! I’ve been looking for a podcast that isn’t obsessed with American politics and actually looks at the Asian region for ages! Thank you!!!!!
