Nice to meet you folks

It’s funny that as an international student in Canada I am learning English by listening to a English podcast from my home country, and that I am learning more about what’s happening in my own country when I am 14hr away from it.
Thanks for your podcast, without which I will never know theses little but interesting topics about daily life in China, such as young people are thinking about living in Jingdezhen and there are cars designed(targeted) for female.
