Hello!

Here’s our new pitch to newcomers:

If you want to make money in China, you'll need to understand the trends in Chinese culture, technology and business.

I've spent a quarter of my life in China, and I've been doing business there since 2003.

In this podcast, I chat with my friends about the newest developments from China that I think will affect business, or are just plain fun.
