Fascinating story, I've been waiting for someone to do this. Great guests from all over the world.
Too bad it's not released all at once for a binge listen.
Sometimes the presentation seems quite comical and light-hearted for the most significant and telling political scandal to hit China in years.
The audio volume is a bit irregular too - had to turn it down (then turn it back up) several times when sounds are used.
"Bo Xilai" song gets a bit repetitive...
Odd that episodes just called "episode 1" or "episode 2" rather than some sort of clever chinese phrase that hints at the content.
Will be recommending to friends also interested in China
Has it all
Great podcast - political murder mystery set against a background of Game of Thrones level intrigue & China's rapid transformation from a struggling peasant nation to a modern powerhouse economy. The main characters are children of the revolution, who rode the wave of recent history from privileged sons & daughters of the old guard to dirt poor political outcasts who then came roaring back to crazy wealth & power. Well told by the BBC. The presenter was a touch eccentric, which worked well with the story
Fantastic production and a gripping story
