China Punks 07: Title Censored

Recorded on Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Goodness comes in increments.

This week, Charlie and John struggle to find a piece of Chinese news that’s as compelling as Wang Lijun’s supposed defection attempt.

However, it seems that they’ve finally agreed to disagree about something.  We all know that agreement is boring.  Episode 7 is not boring (if you disagree, that’s still a win for us, ‘cuz that means you actually listened!)

They discuss the merits and demerits of the Chinese and US systems as well as the futility when it comes to comparing two very different political/cultural constructs.  Also, (going completely outside their purview or supposed expertise) they discuss the Syria situation and whether intervention would be a good thing.

Thanks for listening.  Let us know what you think.  And don’t forget to tell your friends how wrong we are.
