Disappointed in shanghai ,

Very insightful!

A great deep dive into a very big problem.

kristamarieyu ,

The inside scoop!

I find this podcast very informative and exciting. It gives me direct insight to the environmental new energy world in China. Andrew is a great host, and you can tell what a great listener he is, which I appreciate - he’s not just thinking of the next thing to say, or making this podcast about himself. Can’t wait for more eps. ☀️

Great content

I wish mainstream media would cover content like this. It’s a shame that millions of dollars go towards figuring out what latest gaff Trump committed instead of a podcast like this one that provides facts and insights on an extremely relevant topic, China and US relations, clean tech and entrepreneurship.
