    Mosaic of China with Oscar Fuchs: Bonus Episode from The Bridge (CGTN)

    Mosaic of China with Oscar Fuchs: Bonus Episode from The Bridge (CGTN)

    Around the same time as launching Mosaic of China, I also embarked on a period of study at Shanghai Jiaotong University, starting with a course in Mandarin language followed by a Masters in Modern Chinese Studies. In today's special bonus episode, I discuss a little of what I learnt with Jason Smith and Beibei from CGTN's 'The Bridge' podcast. In our chat recorded earlier this year, we talk about Chinese philosophy, as well as some of the similarities and differences between life in China versus Singapore. A big thanks to Jason and the team at The Bridge for giving me permission to share this edited version on the feed for Mosaic of China. The original full episode can be found at https://radio.cgtn.com/podcast/news/5/Podcast-Meets-Podcast-We-playfully-invite-a-fellow-podcaster-on-as-a-guest/2707087. Chapters00:00 - Trailer & Intro 02:04 - Main Subscribe to the PREMIUM version, see the visuals, and/or follow the full transcript for this episode at:https://mosaicofchina.com/season-03-bonus-the-bridge. Join the community: Instagramhttps://instagram.com/oscologyLinkedInhttps://www.linkedin.com/company/mosaicofchinaFacebookhttps://facebook.com/mosaicofchinaWeChathttps://mosaicofchina.com/wechat

    The Death Companion (ZHOU Yan, Hospice and ’Death Café’ Volunteer)

    The Death Companion (ZHOU Yan, Hospice and ’Death Café’ Volunteer)

    In three seasons of the Mosaic of China podcast, we've already covered a large chunk of the A-Z of life in China. In today's episode, we're fast-forwarding to the end, not just because Zhou Yan's name starts with a 'Z', but because we're talking about the subject of death.  In her work as a volunteer in hospices and 'Death Cafés' in Shanghai, Zhou Yan is doing more than just dispelling the superstition and stigma that surrounds the subject of death in China. She also demonstrates how to live life with more intention, and with more reverence to those around us. The episode also includes catch-up interviews with: Chang Chihyun from Season 02 Episode 03 https://mosaicofchina.com/season-02-episode-03-chang-chihyunand Nick Yu from Season 01 Episode 13https://mosaicofchina.com/season-01-episode-13-nick-yu00:00 - Trailer & Intro 03:09 - Part 1 24:01 - Part 2 39:33 - Outro 43:38 - Catch-Up Interview [1]50:56 - Catch-Up Interview [2]Subscribe to the PREMIUM version, see the visuals, and/or follow the full transcript for this episode at:https://mosaicofchina.com/season-03-episode-22-zhou-yanJoin the community: Instagramhttps://instagram.com/oscologyLinkedInhttps://www.linkedin.com/company/mosaicofchinaFacebookhttps://facebook.com/mosaicofchinaWeChathttps://mosaicofchina.com/wechat

    The Airline Pilot (Michael HUNDEGGER, A320 Flight Commander)

    The Airline Pilot (Michael HUNDEGGER, A320 Flight Commander)

    To many, the image of an airline pilot conjures up thoughts of confident commanders in crisp tailored uniforms, living a life of excitement, romance and adventure. But what about the life of an airline captain in China? In today's episode with Michael Hundegger, we have a good-humoured conversation about the culture of commercial aviation in China. Yes, there's still the romance and the adventure. Of course there's also the procedures, the strict hierarchy, and the grunt-work. But more than that, there's a fascinating window into the nature of authority, discipline and education in China. The episode also includes a catch-up interview with: Vittorio Franzese from Season 02 Episode 27https://mosaicofchina.com/season-02-episode-27-vittorio-franzese00:00 - Trailer & Intro 00:54 - Part 1 22:29 - Part 2 32:20 - Outro 36:06 - Catch-Up InterviewSubscribe to the PREMIUM version, see the visuals, and/or follow the full transcript for this episode at:https://mosaicofchina.com/season-03-episode-21-michael-hundeggerJoin the community: Instagramhttps://instagram.com/oscologyLinkedInhttps://www.linkedin.com/company/mosaicofchinaFacebookhttps://facebook.com/mosaicofchinaWeChathttps://mosaicofchina.com/wechat

Unique guests, unique perspectives and lenses on life in China

I love the diversity of perspectives, experiences, and insights that Oscar has on Mosaic of China. Such a unique refreshing view highlighting the beauty in the simple and the value of understanding and accepting differences. I would highly recommend giving it a listen to broaden your horizons from the farms of rural China to board rooms of International companies!

Rich in stories

I’m fascinated by China as so many people are I’m sure, this really gives you wonderful insight into so many aspects of the country and it’s quirks. Great interview style and some wonderfully illuminating stories from a really varied group of guests making their life and work in China.
