China Punks 05: Baijiu makes you say the darndest things!

After almost a month of silence, the two punks are back with their bad mouths and over-generalizations.

In this episode, Charlie and John catch up after a period of involuntary silence to talk about Startup Asia, Wang Lijun, Xiaomi, as well as the gut-wrenching Spring Festival and accompanied headache-inducing Festival Gala on CCTV, et al.
