Amazing

I absolutely love this, short, well written stories that you won’t get anywhere else. I listen to this with my morning coffee!

Great content but...

Great content but weird voices from Kaiser when reading for most female talking heads + a really odd Russian impression for good measure

Been hoping for something like this

I recently started using audm, an app that lets you listen to long form journalism, and have thought about how great it would be if there were an aggregated feed of China journalism audio— so I was delighted when this new podcast floated across my twitter feed.

The readers I’ve heard so far do a good job, and hard to go wrong with outlets like sixth tone, Caixin, and supChina. Looking forward to more— keep churning them out please!
