Excellent new podcast

I really enjoyed this podcast. The format was very interesting - I liked how she summarized the interview with three key takeaways. I also thought the interview with Larry Namer was really enlightening. He is clearly an experienced "China Hand" and gave me a lot to think about as I learn more about film projects involving China. I wish Caryn all the best with her personal ventures, and I look forward to listening to more podcasts from her in the future.
