In China We Don't Trust.  Trust is a big part of my upcoming UnCommie Manifesto. I can't wait to share it.  

Learn how my latest trip to the hardware store inspired this episode,.  

A lot of the companies we count on to audit and inspect labor conditions in China, are bowing out and will no longer work in China. It's too dangerous, it's nearly impossible to trust the authorities there, and why normalize manufacturing in a region in China known for suppressing and imprisoning ethnic and religious minorities.
