Thorough, transparent, fair, interesting, and actually engaging!
Simply amazing. Thorough, transparent, fair, and actually fun/interesting. You all do a fantastic job creating a holistic storyline and providing expert insights. I appreciate the thoroughness and the on-the-ground guests you bring on, who provide a real view of what’s actually happening in that country. Keeping up with China is difficult enough, you make it easy. Thanks for all you do, it’s truly appreciated!
I listened to learn more about Africa. But I’m started to get bored. The same tired examples and complaints get hashed over and over, and there doesn’t seem to be enough new content. Consider shorter , less frequent episodes to keep the existing ones fresh with new content.
As an expat in China, I’ve grown a keen interest in understanding the country I live in. The CIAP really gives me unique way of looking at China internationally from a non China/America focus.
It’s very educational in an easy to listen to conversational format.
