    China’s Zero-COVID Policy

    China’s Zero-COVID Policy

    When China first instituted its zero-COVID policy, it was a success: as other countries struggled with soaring infection rates and overburdened hospitals, life for many Chinese citizens began to look normal again within months—so long as they weren’t infected. But the omicron variant changed the game. Now, people are speaking out against draconian lockdown measures they say are inappropriate to face the current level of threat.

    How did zero-COVID evolve from being the most effective virus prevention strategy in the world to a disproportionate and punitive system? And how has that evolution expanded state control?

    Guest: Dake Kang, journalist in the Beijing bureau of the Associated Press.

    No Lone Wolves

    No Lone Wolves

    A shooting Saturday at a supermarket in a predominantly-Black neighborhood in Buffalo left at least 10 people dead and three more injured. The suspected shooter left a manifesto riddled with racist ideology, laying out plans to specifically target Black people and citing the so-called “great replacement theory” as his motivation. 

    How much will white supremacist violence be a part of the everyday lives of Americans — and what’s being done to stop it?

    Guest: Wesley Lowery, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist covering race in America.
