WORLD CLASS

this podcast is world class, I love everything about these and in a really difficult time in life these stories gave my mind something to just listen to and escape thank you for making these

Excellent work making this subject approachable

This podcast is clearly well researched, thoughtfully planned and carefully executed.

The episodes are made entertaining and understandable even if you are not familiar with the source material. Each episode is short enough to listen to when you don’t have a lot of time but engaging enough to make you want to hear more.

I will definitely explore this channel’s other podcasts and I look forward to learning more from Chinese literature.
