China Punks 23: War Week

Recorded on August 29, 2012

Unfortunately, this week we don’t have any sexy photos or stories of illicit, and perhaps illegal, sexual activity on the mainland.  But we do have something almost better than sex: violence!

That’s right.  We’re in the midst of several different wars, some hot, some cold, online and offline.  Baidu is facing off against Qihoo360 in the online search wars, 360buy is battling everyone except Amazon in ecommerce, and Chinese people are feverish with nationalism and anti-Japanese sentiment over some rocks in the Pacific Ocean.

China Punks 15: I’m F****ing Dis Pear, Man

Recorded on May 30, 2012

We’re trying something a little different this week and, as with anything new, there’s always room for error (which we never make).  It took about two days after the recording to get everything together.

You’ll notice that Charlie sounds amazing whereas John sounds just as crappy. Also, if you’re really paying attention, you might notice that both John and Charlie seem telepathic, because we are.

Again, welcome everyone from the No Agenda Stream.  You can catch us “live” every Friday at noon EDT (4pm GMT).
