Enjoying the podcast so far, have yet to be disappointed with any of the offerings in the Sinica podcast network. Rui and Ying Ying have good chemistry together, although the podcast can seem a little rehearsed at some points it’s informative and I appreciate their perspective!
Great for keeping up-to-date on China’s tech industry!
Ever since I spent 3 weeks visiting China at the end of 2017, I’ve been fascinated and interested to learn more about what’s going on in their rapidly developing economy. There’s so many exciting tech advancements I got to enjoy while I was there (all of WeChat’s many functions, Alipay, etc.) and I love that this podcast keeps me informed of these and goes in-depth to explain the details. Ying-Ying and Rui are great hosts and clearly very knowledgeable! I would love if this podcast came out more often (2x/week?) and covered/discussed more of the unique influence of China’s government on its tech industry.
Insightful+concise commentary from China tech insiders
Really enjoy the capsules of insight this podcast delivers into the world of China tech. I follow this world pretty closely, but the hosts often come at questions I thought I understood from a new angle -- the episode on Lu Qi was a great example of this. Both Rui and Ying-Ying know their stuff and have been in the mix on both sides of the Pacific. Highly recommend.
