Dongfang Hour (literally “Eastern Hour”), is a podcast that dives into the fast-evolving Chinese space sector. As the world’s second-largest economy, China is becoming an increasingly important and relevant topic, yet quality information about certain sectors remains difficult to find in Chinese, and is often nonexistent in English.The hosts of Dongfang Hour, Blaine Curcio and Jean Deville, are a consultant/entrepreneur and an aerospace engineer, both based in China. Speaking no less than 5 languages between the two of them, for the benefit of our much-appreciated listeners, the discussion will be limited to English with some Chinese phrases when necessary. In a stand-alone format or with exceptional and always friendly guests, the Dongfang Hour hopes to bring entertaining yet resourceful, and balanced yet pointed insights from within the Chinese ecosystem.
