I know so many middle class Chinese who don’t share their political opinions. This is a great party centric resource to try to understand what my Chinese friends and colleagues are being force fed
A fantastic resource
I, and so many others like me, need this so badly. So grateful to have the AMS and their podcast!
A missing piece of my “China studies"
Huge fan of this podcast. AMS has been an important group and I’m glad they have a podcast now. Great way to keep up your Chinese language skills while staying on top of news and current events. Hopefully they have a variety of readers for the longer Chinese articles. Keep it up guys!
