Understanding China and how China impacts the world. Hosted by Andrew Sharp and Bill Bishop.
Episode details

On today's show Andrew and Bill begin with the strong messaging that emerged from the G-7 summit in Hiroshima and the foreign ministry‘s response, including thoughts on the ongoing trend toward bifurcation and the cycle of name-calling that pervades the relationship between the US and China. Then: a listener asks about the Biden administration’s China policies: What’s been good? What’s been bad? And what happened to the FBI’s report on the spy balloon? At the end: Two new stories on China’s municipal debt problems, one comedian is arrested in China while another is banned from Weibo, and ESPN’s delays the debut of a Michael Chang documentary for reasons that remain unclear.
