"People are gonna be very upset. Trump is pushing a lie about the election. Show me the line. Where's the lie? The Democratic election officials exploited the China virus to upend the election systems in the weeks and months before the election, often without the approval of state legislatures, in some cases in direct violation. Of the state constitutions. So show me the lie. I don't see a lie there. But then notice what Trump says. He doesn't say, and that's why we actually won the election and Biden 100% actually lost in, say that, he said he had a massive impact on the election, which is true more on that in a minute.

Tech Companies Face New Rules in India
"For many tech companies. India is key to continued growth while developed markets are becoming increasingly saturated there over one point. Three billion people in india only about half of whom are online which means there are hundreds of millions of people who have yet to start using email or buying things online but india has increasingly sought to exert more control over the tech giant's setting up shop there which has sometimes resulted in clashes between the companies. And the government. The latest new rules to govern how internet companies like twitter and whatsapp handled problematic content. Online here to talk more about this is tech reporter newly per now. Hey newly thanks for being here. My pleasure okay. So let's start by talking. Broadly about some of the regulations. The indian government has started to implement what we've we been seeing up to now sure we'll over the last few years. As e commerce companies like amazon or as digital services like google and twitter and facebook have become so prominent in india as they are in other countries. You've start to hear bureaucrats talking about the importance of data sovereignty. They call it or the rights of indians to be able to make their grievances against some of these platforms heard or the fact that these behemoths are so dominant and that indian start ups and tech companies haven't really been given to room to breeze the government officials say. And so you started. Hear them talking about the quietly geopolitical reasons. The success that china has had in developing their own tech giant's global tech giants. And so you starting to see moves like tightening of restrictions on ecommerce companies that affect amazon. And the the amazon of india coai flip car which is now owned by walmart. You started to see data. Localization regulation start should be talked about and the now of course these newest rules on social media company. So it's a bit by bit tightening. Where the government seems to be exerting more control over some of these. us tech firms that have been just so dominant. Over the years in india and newly i understand that some of the measures have resulted in a couple of clashes particularly in the last few weeks. Sure will the. The one of the major clashes in recent weeks with twitter was where the government asked the platform to remove a lot of accounts that were tweeting anti-government material amid these long running protests of farmers against the government in new delhi said that they're inflammatory. They're inciting violence. They're trying to foment social unrest. Twitter blocked them unblock them and then under pressure from the government in which they were threatened with having their executives arrested block them again. So you have a twitter or being in the position of saying we respect freedom of speech and people's ability to express political opinions and wanting to enable their us to do that. But then really getting hit with this. Mr very strong pushback from the government so that was a major one and then thursday. Of course we have these these new social media intermediary rules right and let's talk more about those new rules. What prompted them. And what are they meant to do. Well there had been suggestions brewing for some time that the government was looking to revamp what it calls its intermediary rules which are the rules that govern tech platforms and so called over the top or ott players like what's app and streaming platforms like netflix. And so what. They've come out with on. Thursday is a set of rules that set out guidelines for how these large social media companies have to operate so include things like including a grievance officer who's resident in india to address concerns that users or the government might have it includes timelines that tech companies have to keep in mind in responding to some of these issues a code of conduct have ethics for streaming platforms and so essentially. It seems to be the government saying our users should be able to take action or have their their problematic issues address with these platforms. And we wanna make rules really for the first time that make these tech. Companies have to respond more quickly. So how are the tech companies responding to that. What did they say about these new rules so far. They haven't said much you know. Companies of all stripe don't like to be regulated unless they have to be although facebook has said for some time with mounting regulations. Coming around the world that they welcome them but tech observers have said. It's some of these are raised issues worries because they come as prime minister. Modi's government is facing his biggest political test ever in these months-long protests by farmers against some new farming regulations. And and so you've seen the in rhetoric. At least the government getting more aggressive with these companies that are so dominant in india. Many of them have not said much and and they may be waiting to see you know if the political storm passes but they certainly don't want to come out and say well we're not going to do or we're not going to disagree with the government because as we've seen last year india did ban tiktok massively popular platform in india after some clashes in the border region with china. So that was a warning sign. I think to a lot of these companies that india won't hesitate to take drastic action

House passes $1.9 trillion pandemic relief bill
"Massive $1.9 trillion covert relief plan, now heads to the Senate after passing in the House. ABC is Mark Malard has more covert relief bill does not include President Biden's $15 an hour wage boost and it doesn't include any Republican support. The bill passed the house along party lines, and it's likely to follow the same path in the Senate. Republican Senator Rob Portman on ABC this week, says he's hopeful for a bipartisan effort could work together on this one and then continue to work together on infrastructure and retirement security and supply chain issues with China and so on. So my hope is that they change their mind before this is over. Democrats say the Republican proposal is far too little.

China State Media Says Biden's Early Policy 'Smacks of Trumpism'
"Campaign Republicans sought to portray Joe Biden is likely to be soft on China, but an editorial in Chinese state media this past week Says the Biden administration policy toward Beijing Quote smacks of Trumpism Bloomberg Economics reporter Shawn Donnan has been tracking trade policy. He joins me now for some insight into what to expect, Shawn. It is always a pleasure. Thanks so much for joining me. Thanks so much for having me. Okay, let's start on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers considering Biden administration nominees, including Katherine Tie By those pick for U. S Trade representative. You've been following this hearing. What is your takeaway Ben from her appearance before lawmakers. It's really interesting. What we're seeing from the Biden administration is a real change in tone around trade. At the very least, we're still not Getting a whole lot of specificity in terms of what sorts of policies they're going to do. What Tangible steps they're going to take when it comes to dealing with China and other trade problems that they threw US faces But way heard from Katherine Tie this week is a real effort to portrayed administration. That wants the focus on getting rid of the chaos and trade policy that some people, really, especially in the business community, really agonized about what kids Trump administration and moving towards something more delivered is more process driven. Uh, probably smarter is their their their idea. Now she had made a pretty strong case for China to live up to the trade agreement. It has already eat with then President Trump. Where's that now? Yeah. So we're in this really interesting situation. Where President Trump if you remember in January of 2020 find this deal with the Chinese. He called the phase one deal in which the Chinese committed to, uh, to step up their purchases of American products. Everything from farm Exports to airplanes and other manufacturer kids on go also to make some changes and how they enforced intellectual property rules. And so on. And then, of course, we got the pandemic and everything kind of went askew. Um, but one of the big questions surrounding the Biden administration coming in is are they gonna make, you know? Are they gonna Look at that deal and use that as the basis of the economic relationship with China and the way that the Trump administration with them. Are they gonna seek to make China live up to that deal, and it's purchased commitments and other things like opening up its market financial services companies out of the U. S also You know the type provisions? Well, what we heard from Katherine tie this week. Is that well, that's the deal that we have with China, and that's the deal that we're gonna be. We're gonna be asking them tow live up to you. So that's the first step. We know that they're gonna Um, they're gonna enforce that deal. That's what Katherine pies signaling. But then there are all these questions about what comes back. Of course, Phase One implies that there's a phase two. And right now, this huge questions about whether we ever see of face to agreement, and that's gonna be down to what the Biden administration chooses to do it face to agreement would really get into some of the structural issues. In the relationship and the ways that China competes unfairly, according to American businesses, And those are things like the subsidies that the Chinese Communist Party gives to, Uh both state and private companies and united China in the form of cheap electricity. Cheap loans on Shawn So you know, we're getting a little bit of a hint, but a lot of questions still left Now, a lot of this and you touched on this briefly. I want to dig a little bit deeper. These agreements are often about enforcement, not just words. But how they're going to have some teeth now, What are you expecting from the Biden administration when it comes to trade with China and enforcing those deals? Yeah. So one of the features that Bob Lighthizer of the President Trump's U. S trade representative was very proud of in the China agreement was an enforcement mechanism that there was a way for the US to, uh hold China accountable and impose tariffs and another punitive measures. If China didn't live up to the deal, we don't yet know what the Biden administration is going to do. We haven't yet had that situation. Where, Um, we're looking at an enforcement case. But that's ah, huge question that we also know that the Biden administration may choose to take another route in terms of enforcing a deal like this or taking on China, another in other issues. Trafford Ty used to be the chief China enforcement officer at the U. S Trade representative. Office. She's the one she was the lawyer who was literally arguing before the World Trade Organization cases on behalf of the US against China. One thing she said this week is that By administration expect to engage and take a leadership role at the World Trade Organization again. And so that means that the administration made may choose to go there rather than the bilateral route, which kind of took the U. S and China outside of the existing global trade rules.
Portugal's Art and Architecture
"Let's start today's travel with rick. Steves in portugal. The architecture and the art of portugal to tell the story of that small country squeezed between spain and the atlantic ocean. You can wander through museums classical and romantic paintings to styles with the largest impact on portuguese painters or you can take in the beautiful. Blue azoulay zhou tiles. That ornament many of portugal's buildings to learn more about portugal's art and architecture. We're joined in our studio by two portuguese guides. Christina duarte and refco christina and raphael. Thanks for joining us. Average abuse here. Rick christina so often to understand the art of a country you need to understand its economy. There's money behind the art. How does money shape the art in the architecture of patrols. When you have money you want be surrounded by beautiful. Things actually is universal. Everybody wants to be surrounded by beautiful things. The thing is that you don't afford it many times and when you afford them you have them in portugal much money then because they have great art from five hundred years ago yes well. It is a combination of two major. Factors the fifteen hundreds with the discovery. Spirit that allowed us to have for the first time money enough for our trade with many places in the world so automatically the royalty had many the nobility had money and the church have many and the coincidence is that your have money and you have also religion behind it so which. She's being major catholic. Contrary in thinking that you want to give your best and you'll beauty to your your glorify gone exactly to glorify god so They were two kinds of ways of spending that money in art. Which was the private and that will be for palaces that nobody will see and to god in churches and i consider that public art so review. All you have this money coming in from the trade in fact the churches were actually nicknamed spice churches. How how does the space tie into the building of churches. Well when portugal arrived to places like india and china and we started to bring all of these new products. Back to portugal. They revolutionized portugal they revolutionized our economy and from there on the society started to change and that is one of the interesting aspect of art is that it reflects the other dimensions of society. So the spices. There were They were a major factor. For example the jeronimos monastery that began to be built precisely with the money that came from the spices. Which bases were these that were so valuable. So you had Pepper you had cinema And many others in christina. Why would people spend so much money for pepper and cinnamon app to preserve no sleaze to preserve refrigeration also to Pigments of any kind for linen. Or tying dying yes. it was something exotic. It was different. People never seen it before. So imagine the first time you are smelling coffee or you're tasting pepper or you're smelling cinema. Imagine the impact that you had imagined how it sparked your imagination so the wealthy people would want this. It would be titillating for them now. You mentioned the monastery at toronto's same just outside of lisbon b. l. e. m. I believe that was men. Welland style architecture. What is men whalen. What we're does that word come from so The men willing style is named after our kingman. Well actually the name was given only in the nineteenth century during the romantic period but kingman while he was one of the most important kings during our age of exploration so he ruled from the time of columbus until fifteen twenty began to rule in fourteen ninety five until the fifteen twenty s in the nineteenth century. They figured out that. We had a several monuments throughout portugal. That shared the same characteristics. So what are the characteristics. If you look at the front of a church what will you see and you go. Oh that's men welland from fifteen twenty so the manor line is late gothic style so you have the basic structure of the gothic and then over that basic structure of the gothic. You have a very specific declaration. You have for example. Maritime mothes you have the strong. Heraldic of manuel specially to miller rece- fear so that the coat of arms of the royal family and then themes from the sea because the money came from the see exactly like the rope the rope a rope with an art. He's a very very important symbol of maryland.

US bombs facilities in Syria used by Iran-backed militia.
"I'm anthony davis. United states launched air strikes in syria on thursday targeting facilities near the iraqi border used by iranian backed militia groups. The pentagon said the strikes were retaliation for a rocket attack iraq earlier this month that killed one civilian contractor and wounded a us servicemember and other coalition troops. The strike was the first military action undertaken by the biden administration. Which in its first weeks has emphasized. It's intense to put more focus on the challenges posed by china even as middle east threats. Persist decision to attack. Syria did not appear to signal an intention to widen. Us military involvement in the region but rather to demonstrate a will to defend us troops in iraq earlier the pentagon spokesman john kirby said us action was a proportionate military response taken together with diplomatic measures including consultation with coalition partners. The operation sends an unambiguous message. President biden will act to protect american and coalition personnel. Kirby said at the same time we have acted in a deliberate
Israel freezes plan to send vaccines to foreign allies
"The story coming out of israel this week. was That israeli journalists. Kelly cohen reported that israel's going to send one hundred thousand vaccines to nineteen nations around the world. Some of these nations announced that they were moving are had already moved embassies or missions to jerusalem honduras guatemala czech republic. There was no debate at all In the security cabinet no authorization by the justice. Minister of foreign minister and benny was the defense minister. And by the way interim justice minister said that thinks he's a running running kingdom and not a state by this decision obviously. Israel's already criticized for not making it a priority to vaccinate. The palestinians may talk a little bit more about that. But it isn't making us look better right this these one hundred thousand. Vaccinations being sent abroad. No i didn't think it is. Because i mean vaccine diplomacy which is a new thing now in our will. But he's a real thing you know with china india jostling with each other to distribute vaccines to win influence and goodwill in asia etc. You know united arab emirates is is giving vaccine to egypt. Obviously this is a thing to be doing. Russia trying to boost its profile. But the problem here is. It's very transparent. The israelis basically rewarding friends. You know that hungry set up. A trade mission in jerusalem or the republicans promised to do something similar and therefore because of that recognition Be wants to reward those countries Vaccine i mean it goes down well for the reason you know. Which is the story. A big story around the world is that israel is not accenting Its nearest neighbors and therefore misses something. I think about vaccine diplomacy well. Why don't we just talk about that. Because of course that has reached a new audience that notion of what israel's doing not doing vaccine right and it reached a new audience in you're referring to the snl clip that How shall you say this. Caused a bit of a ruckus this week. So let's listen in and talk a little bit more about reporting that the vaccinated half of their population. And i'm gonna guess it's the jewish half. I mean obviously you mentioned this. Jonathan about how if I think you said this one of the previous episodes if this was new zealand. We wouldn't be hearing at the end of the vaccination thing but because it's israel and it's politically charged. There's there's added complexity to the story. Yeah i mean you know you states say. The snl clip went viral jojo. Avars use that word to me. That was a big moment. Really because it's mainstream american comedy. If that is now it seems to me. There's a judgment there. Such a night live making the among its audience. There will be a perception as a more left wing. Frankly view of israel than i think would have been true a generation ago And you can make a joke like that sort of edgy but the the among kinda millennial snl audience who. Let's say you know. Revere alexandria ocasio cortez. The idea that israel is basically a little bit racist is a joke that lands without audience. That's what i think. Snl thinking there and just on the point about vaccine diplomacy. It seems to me that is the piece that's missing. Which is okay. You think you get a little bit of goodwill in hungary czech republic or whatever but actually what is noticed around the world and we can get into the arguments for and against is. The palestinians are not being vaccinated by israeli vaccine. And that's the big picture to the point where it took butter than snl joke.
China denies subjecting US diplomats to COVID-19 anal tests

Biden Orders Broad Supply-Chain Review Amid Chip Shortages
"The biden administration has signed an executive order mandating. A one hundred day review of critical supply chains. Yes some of the concern here is that they want to make sure we never again have shortages of critical things like masks and other p. e. or materials necessary for mass vaccination say pharmaceuticals even food. Basically they want the us to be less. Reliant on overseas sources for critical materials like these but also there's a heavy tech angle here quoting the wall street journal the executive order mandates a one hundred day review of supply chains for four areas. Semiconductors used in products from cars to phones large-capacity batteries use electric vehicles pharmaceuticals and rare earth elements that are key to technology and defense pharmaceuticals and rare earth elements. That are key to technology and defense. The executive order wouldn't fix the near term chip shortage. White house officials acknowledged but the hope is to produce a longer term plan to help the federal government prevent future supply chain problems. They are separately looking for ways to ease the backlog facing us automakers while white house officials said the executive action isn't aimed at one particular country it comes as us interest rises in combating china and fostering ties with other supplier countries. China dominates the rare earths market and is a major player in other supply areas including pharmaceuticals and quote.
Economist Scott Irwin: How Chinese Buying Is Causing a Boom in Agricultural Commodities
"We're going to dive into the whole issue of food price inflation as well as the new dallying hog futures contract by poplar request. We're going to be speaking to scott irwin. He's an agricultural economist at the university of illinois scott. Welcome to the show be here. Cisco in addition to being an agricultural economist. You're also an actual farmer from iowa. Is that correct. Well try technically speaking. I don't actually get much tractor. Driving and physical participation but i. It's an interesting situation I from the landlord's side of my family's farm out niwa my eighty five year old mother and i provide the management and do all the marketing of the crops. So i lived through the epsom downs of the grain markets. Like everybody else plus a get to try to work the market with my card playing eighty five year old mother that sounds extremely satisfying. And fun right now. You know sort of mentioned this rally that we're seeing as pretty intense across various soft commodities agriculture commodities. What are you give us the sort of basic big picture of what's going on what's driving This bid china perfect is that is Sixty does the yeah. It's not the only factor of course but in the market that's the number one driving force we've seen a Justice explosion in a grain exports to china basically started about last july and as shown little signs of cooling off some of that related to their phase one trade agreement that was negotiated. A in the previous trump administration Some of it also related to rebuilding of their hog her because of the african swine fever and then some of it is also Related to just their desire to rebuild some of their reserve stocks as well. But that's so one thing. I always wondered about you. See these headlines that china is building up its grain reserves. And i don't know i i can kind of see. Why countries would do that. But i i always wonder how useful those reserves are over the long term and how they actually use them. Can you give us a sort of like potted summary of what building up reserves actually means well classic example of something a sounds good in theory and rarely works well in practice. We have many decades of experience with different kinds of reserve schemes. Here in the us They've tried it metals grains and all sorts of commodities soft commodities over the years so they're called buffer-stock. Ski seems and the problem. Is you know the idea. Is you build it. You know it's kind of the seven fat years seven lean years a biblical example put in practice and so that all sounds good in theory but it all becomes very political and Governments have tendency to not want to release the buffer stocks when they really ought to to You know maybe calm markets down because farmers are mad because you're driving the price down So it's just it's a deeply political and it rarely works as a well as it sounds in theory.

If you take that puck ahead maybe you could stand up straight then. Then you got the you know black american act what they call us now. Just got us next but now you recognize the changes from different parts of the us. Maybe ball have braves my have bush but most times always got a pistol. So it's easy recognize him. I'm joking and then you got the true black men from africa straight from sometimes. You don't know them right. All you know most times you recognize him because he has a suit which short sleeves and white shoes. I'm looking because. I know it may be like a really african guy here. I did not like that. But unlike the african american you ain't gotta worry about him shoot nobody but if he pulls strategies drink who can't feel my legs.

Yeah yeah but we have allows Autism from abroad right so the byu problem for us. So we're still council we counsel the muslim fifty plays yes. I didn't think about that in my mind when you open.

"Sebastian lobby to see you same here. What has been your corona virus story. It's a little bit schizophrenic. Because we are here living our life but on the other side. We'll all of. Our families are back in europe in italy and france and we are struggling with them as well. A little bit yeah. Schizophrenic is the right word and also you're guilty because you're having a normal life compared to your family back in your. Yeah i think we talk a lot about privileged last time we talk. Yeah you realize how privileged you are to have this key to travel. Which is your passport where we could navigate. Covert fairly easily. Yes you had choices exactly right. Where are you right now. Is your job the same situation the same well. I'm actually in a transition. This is something we plan for years. And i'm moving out from sales and services to engineering okay. So with edith. Yeah let's talk about then steve. As the example you gave as somebody on the autism spectrum. You hired here in china. Have you noticed that. The people like steve and other people on the spectrum managed situation differently again. It's an opinion. Right so i think they have this capability to adapt to a less social environment. Nevertheless the challenge for us is. How do we keep link right. And how do we keep them engage because being in the office is also helping them engaging socializing with colleagues in eventually customers as well and this has been taken away from them. For example steve had a buddy that was sitting very close to him and being there to help him and and and eventually support him and and and vice versa and of course with not being physically together. then you need to look for different communication method. In by the way steve alone we hired a couple of other employees in the spectrum. We are in the process to hire one right now because we didn't want covert to be our excuse not to continue. That's great because it's like a muscle that if you don't exercise it it will start to atrophy. That's interesting because that's a conversation i had yesterday with few other people were talking about completely different subject. Lgbtq it's very easy to be lgbtq friendly during the month of june because its demands of lgbtq nevertheless. it's all those other months that stuff because this is where you need to be consistent. This is where you'd be really inclusive where nobody's looking where nobody's watching. When we met fifteen months ago we were establishing a lot of foundations that we see today holding our entire building of diversity and inclusion with the company many of the actions that we started that i started. Personally i am very likely involved which means it's been embedded in the culture exactly in. That's what i'm most proud of. Not so much of what. I've done but much more of the seeds that have been planted in trees that have grown. Well that's great and you. It's nice to hear that a year on it's not just a story but it's the legacy sebastien thank you so much it's been great to catch up with you again. You actually referred somebody. Who for certain reasons could not be part of the next season of the podcast but we have a very nice person who could step in. And so i will include parts of this interview in that episode. It's still been a great excuse to catch up with you. So good luck with the future. Thank you oscar..

You had always been a professor in waiting. No i am black. Sheep was never to student since day. One i was extremely successful in my college life. I was at a bar and involving low code union and fashions and probably danes. That sort of different things that you say gangs. Yeah yeah so wait. Let's go to the gangs element them because this is where. I think you have an interesting background now for somebody who is a professor today. I think i understand the tonys underworld quite a law. Oh you do. I do yeah. It's peers that it's always involving a lot of literal lot of pretty woman and a lot of drunken guys and cash. I can see how that would have given you some of the skills that you use now us. Probably the same how i deal with. My vice-chancellors improvised shows are definitely a powerful guys are old saying gene. Thank you so much. Okay okay well. Let's move onto part too great. Are you ready. i'll try my best. Okay what is your favorite china related fact compared to the size of continental europe the variety in china has. Because i know it is diverse. But it's one point. Four and the style is as bid on on europe so it should be diverse but the truth is not. Yeah okay well. That should raise some questions. Because i think some people would argue with that. Definitely please question to do. You have a favorite word or phrase in chinese. Yeah especially mainland chinese. There are a lot of terms that we don't use that in tyler. Gay lee to diff- power and e is over heart. And the first time i heard i simply don't understand but it's so vivid. Okay let's unpick that. What does it actually mean that in. What context straw daily about the homeward batter. For god's sake gay lee. How right so is it. Like a is it. And but it's more Rough okay. i'm quite rough person. And then growing so. I understand that separate. He's a gore is to too much and then you is like hard hard and stiff right so it's too stiff to support. It means really really high standard. Okay so give me an example. Shusha lead on your at a damage. Achievement should be worrying. How funny what is your favorite within china. I would say okay. It's votaw small poyton. there's no real shanghainese right. there were from ningpo and soochow so the shawnise is actually the initial nimble niece and pseudo niece and then all the foreign influence on top. Yeah and actually. Sean talked to a lot of languages. Light law color. It means a gentleman who knows how to enjoy his party. Boudreau live color means white called a call. How funny yeah. And when we show lingerie show. Little laws zeming's disciplined woman. But anyway now is la's airfare over how funny so is from french. I guess because it is a city of immigrants like everyone here claim that i am a real low shahani's no okay next question if you left mainland china. What would you miss the most. And what would you miss. The least i would miss the culture There's a extra thing you see. I'm quite westernized. The way i think the wind starts whatsoever but I still lie to live. This sort of culture contacts would amies the bureaucracy. The bureaucracy of china is interesting to be extremely efficient. Extremely outdated as slow. Yeah at the same time Is there anything that still surprises. You about life in mainland china or ya definitely let me put this way using university education. We know that For the past twenty years. Chinese universities are forcing University lecturers and were traced to publish editor damage papers or journal articles. When we evaluate our colleagues. They still use honey papers. You have novelist yeah. Yes so it. Engenders a society which follows the kpi's yeah because china is shite dented. So it's understandable when we need to manage this country and this stealth people or universities through a very contemplative way. But i am a person who is in charge of evaluate in people's tell. It's day i have to shoot foreign talents. I don't believe in quantitative standards because it's impossible. Where's your favorite place to go out to eat or drink or just hang out. I still light my party. Bolger french session nightlife the bossed trough as the western restaurants are the best in china does not comparison. And do you have one particular place that jumps out. There's a great spanish sing Pie wrote there. Have a great jinyan. Tonnage selection the best okay. I'm going to mysteriously say yes. I have been to that. Spanish place on pan eu lou and i will also not name it. What is the best.

"Lexi. Hello here you are. I can't believe you're sitting in front of me. i now i made it back. Well what the hell was your coronavirus story. It was pretty wild. I left for christmas for an extended kind of time back in the states with my parents and my sister actually and then corona and i've been out of china since then which is insane. I got back to the half three weeks ago. Now i did the two weeks in quarantine i think you in this wave. That has come back since september but it hasn't been immediate right. No a lot of people gave up. I think people were like okay. I guess this is a good time. Just to move yeah. It was very mentally taxing to just have the uncertainty of the flight situation. The rules were changing constantly constant anxiety. What about your dog. that's the main thing. Yeah so. I am very lucky that i have great friends and a handful of people took care of him for the bulk of the time. Really like ten out of the eleven months was my friend pay. Who did an incredible job with little. Mario and mariana will go see him every week just to make sure that patriots is mario time because they really bonded. It was really cute. What was it like to meet him coming back incredible and he was so excited and it was honestly one of the happiest moments of my life and then the business so strictly cookies. Yeah it continued with you gone. I have an amazing team and they all really stepped up and credit to them. They just they nailed it but what it does say to me is. This is a litmus test for you to show that. Actually you don't have to be here. You actually could be overseas and life would go on with the company. There was that kind of liberating at the same time it was. It was funny. Because i actually did better work when i was away and i don't think it was because i was like so nervous that everything was gonna fall apart. I think it was it allowed for a nice separation that gave good perspective on things and as crazy as it was to be living with my family for six months. It was really nice. Having lived abroad for ten years. it felt incredibly special. I think that's going to be a bit of a theme to these. Catch up interviews that i do with people who have come back and then now you must be seeing. Shanghai with new is almost absolutely so a year and a half ago a year ago event. I was very much like. I need a plan. I need to know where. I'm going to be in the next month now. I'm a lot better with uncertainty and just kind of going with it and just letting things. Unfold really honestly. It's a massive massive. Change for me. But i do think it was a good life lesson. Just you don't have a lot of control and you just have to make the best of it. yes absolutely. i'm noting fervently. Because i just know that anyone who was more a control freak now has to be less than gosh. You really see it. After the first two months. I was like okay. I guess i really have no control or anything anymore and the things that you said that you would miss. If you left china you said you would miss the most was gen being and yeah you would miss. The least was the construction noise. Yup that still holds when i got. Yeah when i got in. That was the first thing. That was the first thing i ate. I woke up early left quarantine and got thing that was number one number one for sure. I loved john. Bang and of course we are going to be releasing this update at the same time as the episode of jamie barry who you recommended to. Yes so have you been in touch with jamie very close. Yes so. I saw her the other day. She just had a baby yes she did honestly seeing her seeing my friends i still haven't see i mean i really just got out of quarantine a week ago and yeah really fresh out I really wanna go to cage is my friend.

You know involve the after work. I going for dinner having a beer. All of those little is a little small places are not always the places where you should go in terms of covid safety either very closed before talking without the mass or drinking whatever. So if you haven't been able to experience all of That japan has to offer in that context and also some restrictions about travel that i couldn't leave and return so that left me not being able to see my family and my family still can't come in so that's a little disheartening but i'm hopeful that Not too long in the future. We'll be able to get through that good and you and i still communicate but are you now doing other things. Are you online for example. I have line and what's up but it's like going back to the nineteen twenties It's just it's so backwards. I tell the only thing.

"They're buying this product which you mean is less impulsive stuff in a way or from a different angle. It's up to us to create more excitement to create the new triggers to stimulate stimulate them. How interesting and that's a trend which you happening jarring and has now sustained beyond or is it something which you think will die down. It's something that is still going and we see it as a very deep trend. It's a reality check. China pressed on the pause button during this crisis. This had never happened as we know in the last twenty plus years pause people have time. They think they really value. And now i happen is the unpolished. And it's fast forward again. But in a new way yes it has been funny. How quickly things returned to normal here in a way. That is hard for others to understand. That's something where perhaps you can see more that was going under the surface. I think many people call it the new normal because people have a much heightened sense of safety hygiene health which was born out in terms of what they were purchasing. Of course what was being purchased. More are definitely hand creams for instance we saw that skincare haircare and even make up to a certain degree in this area. That we call beauty with a mask has not stopped. We're back to where we were. It's just that maybe people are buying different things within skin-care or within makeup or within haircare well thank you so much for that stefan. We're not going to go onto part to great. Are you ready. And let's begin. What is your favorite china-related fact. I think my all time. Favorite china-related Piece of trivia. Is this foreign policy anecdote that everybody knows. It's the story of the chinese premier July the premiere of german mile his response to a question from henry. Kissinger this is the early nineteen seventies when nixon and are engaging in direct talks with prc and join. Lie is asked by kissing her. Tha says the impact of the french revolution and as the story goes premiere july response. It's too early to tell but what is interesting is what lies behind the story because in china there's always layers and layers to decode. Actually one of the translators for kissing affairs a few years ago. Maybe three four years ago came out to say that this was a miss told story what really took place. According to him is that prime minister jew miss understood the question and rather than being asked to give his point of view. On the impact of the french revolution of those events of seventeen eighty-nine he thought he was being asked about the student. Protests that hit paris in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight so you see in this context join is answer was very sensible taken out of its context with the yours having polished The story into almost mid. It's totally different. It became an example of the patient and far-sighted nature of chinese leaders who think in increments of centuries as opposed to the short termism ovar western democratic politicians but in recalling the exchange. This one translator said there was a misunderstanding that was too delicious to fight correction. And as it happens this example to me it reveals the difference between a story that is true and one that contains a good deal of truth That's china for me. It's a question that leads to another question. A layer to another layer but always a good story. Yes i love it thank you. Do you have a favorite word or phrase in chinese. i want to quote a poet From the tang dynasty his name is by to eat where he tries to express his perplexity about another philosopher louder the founder of towers and is written in classical chinese very hard to understand but the title of his poem is reading louds it. He's quoting those who speak. Don't know and those who know don't speak this. I have heard from loud but if we say that louder is someone who knows. Why did he himself write a book of five thousand characters. The paradox said the paradox. And it's like the first point with julian lie for me China the chinese culture is always a source of questioning of looking beyond. What you see are what you read. Can you say that in chinese shirt. It's yen to boot. Jude's more see when you're out in draw doubt loudon you enter. Chen went very nice number three. What is your favorite destination within china. I've been lucky to have traveled to many places in china but beijing remains my favorite destination So much culture so many places also of course for me a lot of memories. It combines modernity and traditions and a friend of mine told me quite rightly so that if shanghai is the heart of china Beaching is its head. It's the brain. It's cold city. It's a mysterious city but it's a powerful city. It's an energizing city. At the scale of china nicely said especially since this program has been largely. Shanghai waited and i like the idea of sharing some of that weight with beijing next question. If you let china what would you miss the most. And what would you miss. The least i think i would miss the ding ding ding. You know those tries sicklers the settlers on their tricycles. I would miss this music I don't know how we would call them. Try sicklers their recyclers on tricycles And in this modern city with so many millions of people that is so tech advanced this little music it comes from another time. And what about the thing that you would miss. The least what i would miss the least. Everybody knows everything about you. Everything you know what went out what time he came back. What time your kid. What did they do. While you're this you're that and so at some point it becomes too much. That's actually a good point. Is there anything that still surprises you. Life in china every day all the time because again. When i think i've finally figured out why or what this means. That's exactly when the cards turn. And i realized i don't know so i'm everyday constantly amazed and reminded next question. Where is your favorite place to go out to eat or drink or just hang.

"Hello this is. Oscar kooks and welcome to season two of the mosaic of china. Podcast just like season one over the next thirty episodes. We'll be hearing from a diverse group of thirty people who are making their mark in china. I don't want to ruin any surprises. So let me just say that. There are some great stories from both chinese and non-chinese guests on way over the coming weeks if you're a new listener. Welcome and here's a quick recap of how the show works. There are three parts to each interview. The first part is a straightforward two way conversation which starts with the guest introducing object. That in some way describes their life in china. In the second part. I ask every guest. The same ten china related questions all on the theme of their personal experiences tastes and opinions and the final part is just one extra question where i ask each guest to nominate someone for the next season of mosaic of china. And this is how the tiles up. This mosaic will connect and continue to build out in future seasons. There are also a few things that anew in season two one of them being that this is the first time that we can link new guests back to the people who nominated them from the previous season of the show. So you'll hear how that works in the first episode coming next week. Secondly they'll be transcripts available now on mosaic of china dot com slash transcripts. These have been designed for anyone. Whose first language isn't or of course for listeners. With hearing impairments offer any english speakers who want to follow the words spoken in chinese. Thirdly if you'd like to join the community and track all the images alongside each episode on which at i finally able to rename the we chat account to mosaic of china. Or one word. So please at me from now on and i'll add you to. That's consistent with the mosaic of china accounts that already exists on instagram and facebook if you would still prefer to follow them and finally the biggest difference. The season two is that they will now be two versions of the show. The normal version will be exactly the same as last season. But i'm also releasing an extended version of the show where they will be an average of ten to twenty minutes of extra content for every episode. These will accumulate to up to ten hours of extra content over the course of the entire season and they can be accessed for the tiny cost of to. Us dollars per month at patriot dot com slash mosaic of china. That's p. r. e. n. dot com slash mazeikiu china. All one word. This is the way. I came up with to keep the show free from advertising to still allow you to listen to the series for free one at the same time create a way to accept donations towards the cost of putting this altogether. So if you have anything to spare and you want to help found this independent project as an early. Christmas present please head over to patriot dot com slash mosaic of china. And you can look forward to getting some great extra content to thanks to all of you for your continued support. And i hope to see you back here next week for episode one of the season..

"Sabrina Chen the dawn program curator from episode 26 Well, if you put me into the National Place, I was enjoying it, but maybe I will not actively choose to go. Maybe it's because I grown up in Shanghai. I've seen too many of that for me. I feel like a little bit fed up with this. Yeah, so that that's why I like to go to the place more cosy maybe the supermarket off, you know so much it's magic. So when you order Seafood actually they will put it in a bag and they were handled back on the track. So it's like an automatic system. You can receive your goods. It's really funny. Stephen Demond, the events Company CEO from episode 19 I'd like to give a shout out to shake shake is by far my favorite live music venue in Asia. They on Marmion roads beautiful place for dinner drinks and some dancing and trust me. I've been to quite a lot. So go to shake fantastic. And again my favorite all over Asia off for an advance and the Mantra compliance leader from episode 15. So the best place to hang it on is always the one and once you go home and take a walk in the evening. I think you really can't stop it my ring the other side how it has been created and the phenomenal fact is that it has been done in the past twenty years. Sanford-Brown the biochemist from episode 29 So there's some downsides to to the pace of change that happens. So I would say a lot of the favorite places that I had no longer exists my favorite bouncer shop. My favorite game show up some older streets that I would love to work in that really felt like you were an older China. Unfortunately. Those are really exist anymore in Shanghai I used to do when people came in dead Shanghai for the first time. I used to take my side car and go out to the countryside where you see farmers and everything and then take them down to the Bund and you saw that all within one day and so it was complete contrast of that. So that's a that's a little bit there. So there but then flip side you always have new Fantastic places the new restaurant that I like is a higher wage in the Edition Hotel. Cuz what I like about is a food's very good there the qualities there but the view so they have a bar upstairs and you have a rooftop and of course, yep. Has lots of rooftop bars, but what was interesting I like this one. It's a different View at least what I had seen before cuz you're further back and you have a different perspective on the city that I had never seen before even though I've seen it a million times and honestly, I think Shanghai is the most beautiful city at night in the world. Philippe gas the Disney Resorts CEO from episode one. I recently discovered a very good Cantonese restaurant in a hotel called Edition hotel is right off the band. It's called Kent and disco. If you have not been there recommend you try it. It's great food truck environments. I love this place. I have many Hangouts places where I go to live in the center. So some Mexican food that I love enjoy and many of my friends who like to hang out there. But this one I recommend to try Architectural the fashion designer from episode 13 the best restaurant. I really like is is called high lie, which is on the 6th floor of Escalade and best drinks is sober company, which is the 50 best bar in Asia and it's open by a Japanese poem Eric olander the journalists from episode 3 The Perfect answer for this and the cliche answer would be some Corner dive in the French concession that serves the best dumplings that you've ever heard of Faith. Nobody else knows in their secret spot that the only this one Foreigner seems to know I won't give you that answer because to be honest with you, you know eating Eastern Chinese food. So that is Shanghai Chinese food actual not my favorite. I gotta be honest with you. It's greasy. It's there's I don't like the MSG and it's very salty. I prefer like Southern Chinese food Hunan. So I actually like the French bistros in the western food here in the French Canadian. And I don't have a particular favorite. I mean do. Listen. I'm a big walk as fan. That's not a I mean that's a very kind of Main Street pedestrian answer but they do a good thing to a good service. You know what I'm going to say, but I don't actually have a favorite dive or corner or hole in the wall in Shanghai. It's Anthea Taylor the pain expert from episode 28. So my favorite place is a cafe. It's on a loop. It's called on air and it's sort of in the tucked away in the back of a long Lane, but you won't know it's there you have to you know, someone told has to take you Lexie Comstock the cookie supplier from episode 28, my friend Adam had this amazing apartment right on the corner of fishing and Lucci and he made a New Year's resolution one year to throw a theme party every month and he just nailed it and thought was super open like, you know, you could bring anyone and there were various themes like, you know, Chinese New Year 80s prom all the stuff and people would dress up and so that was like, you know party side that was really fun to go out and but also offer a great balcony so, you know kind of Sunday afternoons lounging on the Belt that was pretty ideal GT Chang the translated from episode 24 Wow might go to restaurants if friends come to town in Shanghai would be spicy moment on William Louis a Hunan Restaurant. I particularly like it because it's very difficult to get good Cantonese food here good in the sense that Cantonese food is not just about ingredients or taste flavorings, but you have took everything on a very very very Hot Wok. And that is this particular taste like you can't really describe it is not like a flavor salty or sweet. But if I something on a very Hot Wok, it tastes different from the non Hot Wok. And is it also a walk that's been tried before and has some residual taste from a no. No. No, it is not like a flash either type taste but that is something it's like cooking something on wood on cold or on gas or on electric. They taste different and I love that restaurant because wage Even though Kahuna food tastes very different from Cantonese food, but that taste of fire is in it. And with that we've reached the end of another compilation and I love that last comment. I've been going to that restaurant that GG mentioned and she's totally right about the taste of fire. Next week will be the final cancellation. It's all about favorite words and phrases in Mandarin. Definitely a fun and useful one and this time not just for fans of Shanghai. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you, too. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. Again. Thank you so much. Thank you. My pleasure to thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Next lovely Thomas heatherwick building that moves and it's excellent. You know, it's a western casual fine dining with lots of Chinese influences would be nice wine list really inexpensive stunning setting world-class service nailed it yummy the broadcaster from episode 21 I think usually a friend will recommend some restaurant or coffee shop and they were bring me there and at that time I will give a score. So this restaurant is good, but it doesn't means I will come back or it doesn't mean it is my favorite because I think if you if seen the places is is your favorite. You will go through all the times right? So if you have to say the places, I usually go a small noodle restaurants near my house. I work go there every day, but this is my home. I don't think so. Maplesville the comedian from Episode II. Okay. There was a Japanese restaurant. I really really like because the design is from Japan there. He's very good. So you sitting there you look at the window you can see the area you are in you can see the lobby you can see the outside of view. It's like you starting from here one part. You can just see the word you're connecting. It's so beautiful and peaceful Life by trying to restaurant Emily match the aquarium conservationists from episode 14. Oh, where's my favorite place? I tend to be lazy with it really kind of funky Delhi area just cuz it's five minutes walk from home. There's always people there. I love Hot Pot. So any any good Hot Pot restaurant The Spicy one is the best. Yeah. I love that. So yeah I float around. Mgu the jewelry Craftsman from episode 18. I really like Malabar because of the Spanish environment. The food is really good and it's not over price range really good portion. It's not like really tiny Tapas. So I would take you the next I Astrid focus on the violinist from episode four, I think one of my favorite places for food is citron citizen restaurant down and it's been I think the first Chinese restaurant I've ever even tried and Shanghai because back then they used to be a toll road and Shanghai Conservatory of Music was beside and I've been going there since like ten years old ready and the people they have been over ten years and I spend like five to six my birthday is there with them so it's just very very stupid like first place to go and take my friends whoever is visiting here. Noah Sheldon the documentary filmmaker from episode 9 there's a restaurant. I love the name in Chinese English name is in and out. It's a horrible position. No, no in and out. It's a you Nam restaurant. Oh, right. It's in who Bendel but it's so excellent. It's no it's on the third floor. You know it exactly I think the food there is so great, but don't have a lot of alcohol. So that's that's kind of a problem Sebastian is the inclusion wage it from episode 11. All right, so it's going to sound are it's in the it's a restaurant in the Florencia Village. So for entire Village is an outlet close to the airport. So that's not so fancy nor glamour. Let's put it that way but they have a very good restaurant. Very good Italian restaurant called Bella Vita. We know the Chef Stephan. I personally am and it's a little bit like every week every Sunday we go back to Italy nothing fancy. Nothing Fusion just traditional Italian cuisine where you can find a little bit of home and you know spend good family time and that's because your wife is Italian, right? Yeah. Viva the fitness Community leader from episode 8 Blackbird actually. Oh, yeah, so and I only just recently discovered Columbus Circle actually, but the you know, it's like the perfect mix of everything you've got great food on the lower floor. You've got great cocktails in the middle and then you've got this gorgeous terrorists where they, you know, they play movies and everything, but you know, it's a shame that it's probably not a Columbia Circle hasn't actually taken off as yet but yet but I'm really like in black bird. Nene some the artist from episode 16 actually my friend's studio. So I have several authors friends. They all have studios around off my Studios area. On tongue and I go in there see what they're making recently and also sometimes invite people here to my studio having a beer right? That's funny. I never really far away from art. Even when you're hanging out you're hanging out around like it's terrible. What's Coleman the theater producer from episode 22 off. I think one of my favorite venues in the entire world. Nevermind Shanghai has to be all on Jiang bellew. I think if guys has done there is absolutely astounding the sound system is unparalleled whenever I get there. It's the same story every time I'm like do this put your bags and coats here. Let's get drink right now, Now we're going to do a dance and then I'm like a four-year-old. like listen. Can you hear me talking? You can hear talking but you can feel the bass right? You can hear me talking but you can feel her face is like my friends laugh at me cuz they're like, I know we've done this before you've literally show me five times. I can't believe how good the sound isn't here and what I love is that any new music that's happening in their people will say oh but I don't think I like trap music. I don't like footwork. I don't think into industrial techno, but they go in there. They're here that as soon you in front of DJ your dancing straight away because always high quality programming. Generally The Invention Company CEO from episode six. IBM is shopping mall facing in downtown Shanghai. I think from the third fourth floor. There's a certain different bars or a coffee shop has terrorists and then also they has like supermarket and movie theaters. So I just like to put myself in somewhere else in the crowd, but still a little bit quiet and has multi-function. Abe de the tour manager from episode 27 probably R&B just cuz that's you know, where a lot of my friends go. It's a record shop right slash bottle shop. So, I guess just worked out with R&B stands for yeah,.

"Put your bags and coats here. Let's get drink right now come in here. Now we're going to do a dance and then I'm like a four-year-old. I'm like listen. Can you hear me talking? You can hear me talking but you can feel the bass right? You can hear me talking but you can feel the face and my boss laughs at me cuz I like was I know we've done this before he literally showed me this 5 times. Welcome to Mosaic of China a podcast about people who are making their Mark in China. I'm your host Oscar fix. So today is the penultimate compilation episode from season 1 and 1/2 coming to the end of these special compilations. It's making me reflect on the fact that this is the only season that I will personally curate because the whole idea of this podcast was for the guests themselves to nominate who will appear in the first season of show. This is where the idea of the Mosaic comes from. I helped to lay out the first Tiles at the beginning but then the Mosaic will organically build out from there. The reason I bring this up now is to explain that as diverse as my network was in putting together the season it's still largely limited to people in Shanghai next season. The referrals are already a little spread out into other cities and this trend will definitely grow as the Mosaic tiles build out in the future Seasons, but for season 1 Mosaic of China could have been renamed Mosaic of Shanghai Mong. You might not have paid too much attention to that across all Thirty of these conversations, but you will definitely notice it now because in today's episode we're talking about the favorite places people like to hang out at home China and it's a love letter to all the restaurants bars and cafes of Shanghai John Barker the Diplomat from episode 25 off there is one place. I particularly love so on the outside it's concrete and it screams out you will be murdered in here like for example, it's it's named as far as a dog. We're courageous was cocktail cocktail very faded. But one day we were desperate survey and have a drink our kids had been really bratty all day. We were just really frazzled. But I do you want to go anywhere? So I sort of that place saw it was open the lights were finally on the first time. It will pass it. So we went in and inside it was just amazing clean semi welcoming environment where somebody clearly really been into the Beatles and it just embraced the sort of the sixties mod Vibe and a really bizarre way. So it turns out the bars called beagle beagle never heard of it. No, you can still smoke or you want inside. That's the downside but the cocktails there were so annoyingly good. NICU the playwright from episode 13 if you decided somehow a place you love it is our future Iraq, really crazy for my job since nineteen ninety-five. I studied in this road every night. I almost the last guy to leave this building off. Okay, lucija the market of a sprite from episode 5. Well my terrorist I like my terrorists and we threw amazing parties there and then I really enjoy having people coming over to the terrorists and enjoy the the good weather Greg Nance the ultra-marathon athlete for episode 23. One of my favorite things to do is just go on long runs off where I just unplugged. I'm thinking and I run around and run until I'm so hungry whereas if I can keep going and I will just jump into the random hole in the wall of dumpling or noodle rice place right there and more often than not just like a really wonderful granny or grandpa is cooking up. Something delicious will have a special moment. They're all usually get a selfie and gave them and then I love the fuel and carbs to then run back to it teaching on where I'm based. That's kind of my favorite actually of everything and I feel like I've seen a couple of hundred wonderful hole in the walls at this point. For listeners may be looking for recommendations Shanghai. I love the Press maybe my favorite coffee shop. It's down in the huangpu district. It is the site of one of the old newspaper presses. And so it's beautiful like kind of Greco-Roman style architecture and it's relatively affordable, you know, americana's and coffee there. You just really beautiful place that go do some work set some goals and then my fair kind of hang out. I'm not a big night owl anymore. I go to bed relatively early. I'm pretty boring but I do like Cochise which is like a grilled cheese spot real close to China accelerator, which is where I'm based and said, yeah that that's just very tasty spot if you ever created some grilled cheese. Loreley the private club GM from episode 10. My favorite place is a week or the David Lynch smile at home. It's Cathy. How can open very late until the morning and the other atmosphere is really underground. It's like David Lynch's move all the Declaration the people inside and all the music place there. It's really, you know, unusual from the daily.

"Felipa gas. The Disney Resorts CEO from episode one the best purchaser made these like little more than a year ago. I bought a scooter and Neil scooter. I don't want to make advertisement but this is amazingly wonderful. It changed my life in Shanghai on weekends and the freedom that you have time to get on it and just you know, go around the French concession to explore the place. I've been biking a lot before that. This is just great and I love my little bite. I'm going to miss it when I leave. View the fitness Community leader from episode 8 probably my most expensive and best is probably my scooter. Actually, I you know, I can't I can't Shanghai without it. Emily match the aquarium conservationists from episode 14. So I'm addicted to taobao. You're not the first person who said that but the best purchase is definitely my situation. I love my scooter worst purchase probably some fake red wine. I bought from a shop once clearly in the wrong bottle wage. Really. Oh really? That's interesting. So it does happen cuz I hear that has a kind of apocryphal tale. It definitely happens. You're right Maples long median from episode 200. I bought the worst one I bought is a printer cuz I thought I'm going to write more more in a printed out by doing use off. So it's just over I want to cook but I do show the same impassive buying always do that should stop it. Simon manetti the business leader from episode 17 m m apart from the lamp. That's the best my bicycle. Yeah, Greg Nance the ultra-marathon athlete from episode 23 the let me go to the worst cuz this is more top of mind my first trip to China Beijing into his nine and I got a wonderful Mal watch and it's like, you know, the chairman Mao with his two hands his two arms is like the second minute clock and I haggled it down to something like twenty R&B which was pretty good deal cuz it started out like two hundred and by the time I had gotten on the airplane to fly home some eight hours later the watch it stopped working and I was like, oh my gosh total swindling hair my sister still love the gift. So it may not have actually been the worst but that comes to mind for sure make you the playwright from episode 13 dead. I think is that is one piece. I think I forget is that is almost ten years ago in Hong Kong. I bought one teacher that has so comfortable. So I every day almost I would change this one and as usual as one and this one be back in the second day. Sabrina join the dance program curator from episode 26. I've been mostly we only purchase Goods on. How about now? However, I moved to new place. Hey, I have to find out what I need for the new place. It's better to see it in person. And I found this place it's need 30 and it's Japanese style song and convenient. I bought plays pots the slippers. Yeah. Stefan Des Moines, the events Company CEO from episode nineteen. I couldn't really think about anything when when you asked me that question simply because I think I'm a young person so you could have asked me okay with the best and the worst relationships that you formed here, but can't really comment on objects cuz it's not really who I am. Okay, I guess we'll take that as a known for this time. As long as the worst person you've met is not me. Thanks for downloading. I hope you've been enjoying these extra shows. As always. I've posted some photos to illustrate some of these answers. So please check out Mosaic of China on in Iraq or Facebook or to join a WeChat listeners group PLS add me there on my ID Oscar 10877 in case you didn't listen to the wrap-up episode at the end of season one reason. I thought to put these compilations together in the first place was to kill time before the start of season to the idea being to allow guests to get back to their normal routines in China before we met up for our chat Bots. Well, the idea is half working. I recorded four episodes of the new season so far and I have more on their way, but I had hoped that by now there might have been a chance for the borders to reopen thought some of the guests who are stuck overseas might be able to return home to China. It doesn't look like that's going to happen. So now we're already into the second half of these compilations. I need to actually start my job. Some decisions. Hopefully I will have made some of those by the time we're back for the next compilation episode in two weeks, which will be on the topic of China news sources. So I'll see you then, Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you, too. you very much. Thank you. Thank you. Again. Thank you so much. Thank you. My pleasure to thank you very much.

"Welcome to Mosaic of China a podcast about people who are making their Mark in China. I'm your host Oscar Felix. We're halfway through these ten special compilation episodes from the guests of season one of the show and I hope that by now you've gotten used to all of their voices. With any luck, you might have also been persuaded to go back and take a listen to some of the episodes that you may have missed before. If not, let me try yet again to convince you the theme of today's episode is worse and worst purchases that have been made in China. I could say that these arms has paint a picture of China's shopping culture and specifically it's Unique e-commerce ecosystem. But actually I think it's more about just being nosy about what stuff people have got Michael Z the Instagram influencer from episode 7. Best purchase is a beautiful chair from taobao and Tower is amazing online platform. For those of you who don't know Chinese e-commerce. You have a direct link with a factory or the vendor or the individual selling. It doesn't come from like Amazon as such so you can have this conversation with someone. I want to buy sofa. But you can just click the color you want. They send you the Swatch and can have this long conversation. I actually can I have a 10 centimeters longer. Can I have a little bit deeper? Can I have it in blue? And also can I have it this Fabric and so you can really have this conversation and we had this chair made which is admittedly a knock off of Faneuil is a very famous Scandinavia designer and the original chair something like ten thousand to fourteen thousand Euros and we had a knockoff commissioned in baby pink beautiful soft everything leather for five hundred pounds. Octo Joan the fashion designer from episode 13 is Turbo, right? But what about the actual thing you bought like do you remember it? Was there a really good thing or a really bad choice? You can from anything in there. Even you applying the Visa. I think so Miracle because you want to apply visa like them or something where you can just send your passport copy and then they sent you a real actual paper directly to your home. Wow. Astrid poke on the violinist from episode for the best purchase I've ever made so far it's I don't know whether you have seen is like off automatic wine bottle opener machine. Do you have seen that they have that I think I've so in China and it surprises me so much and after every time I just like just look so cool. I just put in and show it was Coleman the theater producer from episode 22. I think the best revelation of God how to purchase things has been the fabric market and we have this thing in the company with all the performers which is fabric market finery. And if you're having a house party or this month's rent four people, then you might say where your best fabric Market finery as if the event itself was somehow Black Tie, so I went and got a dress made and it's bright orange and it took Just soaked and it's down to the floor and it's a copy of address that obj gave me and it's like the size of a parachute and it's impossible to ride a bike in and I love it. It's unfair Taylor the paint expert from episode 28. The luxury of the fabric markets means I get to go and have awful things made on impulse. I mean when when you go and you just when go you look at something on a model or you look at a picture and you think wow, I can have that made in my size. You really appreciate why fashion and fashion model a certain size and shapes because wow when you get the proportions different like goodness, that wasn't good. It's so funny. I went through a phase where used to get a lot of things Taylor dead and a lot of mistakes happened and now I've gone back to buying off-the-rack a lot more because in you know what you're getting and you know what the patterns will look like on your body, etc. Etc. I find if found one thing that fits somewhere else I bring it back and then I get it made exactly the same right in 10 different colors. Right? Right. So that's my hack around that dead. Sanford-Brown the biochemist from episode 29 probably worse purchase I made is you know, cuz China you can get some custom made things right off relatively inexpensive and I got a pair of custom-made shoes and it was like cartoon. They were more than four or five sizes too small. There was literally I could not put half my foot in and we had arguments that they made them and I had to pay for them and they were fine and there was like fine for whom because it's like it actually has to be able to fit in my phone. AB deya the tour manager from episode 27 one of the best purchases. They guess was custom-made bed. We had put in a apartment or our old apartment the one below yours that would probably be one of the best purchases mainly because we got a design it and it served us very very well Found You The Jewelry Craftsman from episode 18. I have to say the best. It's amazing. You know, how humid is Shanghai right so I bought this Michelle Discovery. The accident on table. It's actually a Broward the connect to a blanket like a double layer blanket with holes on it. So will you bro for 1 hour? You put this prank it between your your bed and your mattress off your to bed and four if you pray for one hour you eliminate all the humidity and that's might because I'm allergic to all kind of might so the bed we become off. Feel like a try so the comforter so I've been using the for last eight years. It's really cool. Every once you had that in Shanghai off Sebastian s the inclusion Advocate from episode 11. The best purchase is actually a xiaomi vacuum robot with it's so heavy. We don't have an ID. So it does a lot of work for us in our big apartment and it's just working. It's really nice. It's clean the house every day. Eric olander the journalist from episode 3 a Roomba. Oh, you've got one. I got one.

"When you talk about Shanghai recycling regime that they're introducing if you have a durian it is not food waste because of home. I assume because during is disgusting. Welcome to Mosaic of China a podcast about people who are making their Mark in China. I'm your host Oscar Fuchs. Okay, this is already the fourth special compilation episode from season one off. So, I hope I now you get the deal for this compilation. We're looking at how all the guests from the season answered the question. What is your favorite china-related fact the idea of asking this question is to provide you with the ammunition to impress people when your next at a polite Gathering and the topic of China comes up, so get ready to take notes and with just a bit of practice. You could one day be as much of a pretentious no oil as long GT Chang the translator from episode 24 some years ago. I discovered that Norco word wrote private life in Shanghai at the cafe hotel which is the peace hotel and I think he got a cold or like influenza and he got stuck it just this sort of utterly utterly is a very English, you know the cost play Richard Shanghai in 1930. Michael V. The Instagram influencer from episode 7 me how doesn't mean Hello. I think this is the interesting about translation is that we kind of always want to have equal equivalents of words. This word. My language means this word in your language. And Niihau Niihau is you good literally you good and it's implied. There's a question when Hello is I'm here, but I'm not asking for your recognition. Hello in the sense of you can just say hello to an empty room, but you would never say Neha Jan empty room off. Bebu the fitness Community leader from episode 8 everybody knows the four Great Inventions, which was Gunpowder the compass paper and printing but no one knows that they also invented the fishing reel the wheelbarrow cuts and umbrella and the umbrella. Yeah amazing really but it rains so much in Europe. What the hell are they doing wrong? Sebastian is the inclusion Advocate from episode 11. It's a very simple one is 1.4 billion people. I love this numbers because it's a mirage illusion of capturing this one point four billion people market right having spent seven years here in China. I've seen so many companies with that in mind coming back to think you're going to conquer this Market. Emily match the aquarium conservationists from episode 14 one in every five people in the world is Chinese. Is it one in five? Wow factor in at all in China. This is the whole diaspora included. Yes, Nick you the playwright from episode 13 traditional management home Village. I think that's some like like a dream before that is a really good. I can give you an example. My father is a teacher in the country in the village. But before he don't have the salary, but who will pay him and the The Village they will give a field a field. Yeah, and they fear will be free to him and all the people in the village were only paid a salary for him. But this field you can plant and when you have gained you can give birth. Food so actually then they would they would Farm the field and whatever they made in that field. They would give to your father. Yeah. Greg Nance the ultra-marathon athlete from episode 23. My favorite china-related fact, is that the huangpu river the river that flows through Shanghai here was actually be excavated and dredged to be created around 2500 years ago during the Warring States period it starts around song Joong which is like far Southwest Shanghai. It's a district tap it winds its way merrily over the Bund blue dots way onto the youngster river which drains into the East China Sea. Okay. Okay lucija the March 4th right from episode five six hundred and seventy-five million active gamers in China. Wow. I don't know. What is the population of Europe think it's less than that. So imagine more than the population of Europe playing games every day of their life. So for me, that's like wow dead. Eric olander the journalists from episode 3. They created this anti Valentine's Day. So it was it single day. And so they picked November eleventh cuz it's you know represents single people and Ali Baba the world's largest e-commerce company started just discounting products and they created this phenomenal type of of culture around selling. And so everybody all the brands line a whole country becomes like a national holiday. So basically take Black Friday Black Monday Cyber Monday all of those kind of sales and put it on, you know on steroids and this is compacted to just one twenty four hour. They're selling more in volume than all of the Christmas holiday shopping season the United States. It's remarkable 24 billion, and it just keeps going up every year. Loreley the private club GM from episode 10. I like the stone inscription in the tourist site because every Dynasty the people see the same view same Mountain same link, but they have different feeling so all of them, they they put their name on The Stone. So Generation by generation, you can tell the the the the difference people's feeling. AB.

"Anything. It's just it's such a fast-moving place and it's incredible like the paste Sanford grounded biochemist from episode 29. Oh, well, I would say if ever I'm at a point where it doesn't surprise me, then I'd be shocked. I think every time you see things again. It relates to the pace of change and change things change so fast how people adopt to the change just you always see these changes I think for me, this is every time when you look on the streets, I'm surprised by something off Maples War the comedian from Episode II, I feel like because China is very big has loads of people and Thursday because we have one big party to ruin the country and once they there is a decision it's goes down so quickly like the technology a li pay and everything how about it's amazed me even though I'm using it off. I feel like can't get rid of my phone and it's saving me so much time. I want everything just like click click you go to England you need to do cash and everything right now. You can just scan everything. It's amazing, but then off Because the technology because we have 5G now, right everything is going so fast. I was wondering all this time you saved. What do you use? You know, that makes me think cuz usually people track, you know days and days to get there and now just click. Okay, but what you're going to do is the time you got there. A lot of people just standing on the train just like going on moments or still small funny videos off to do something more cuz we saving so much other time right Michael Z the Instagram influencer from episode 7. I think that the biggest surprise now is just how much ahead of the Western World China is and this is a something that everyone comes to visit me that they were so shocked they oh old communist China has like better apps better taxi services better all these things and you know, it's so easy just click your fingers and you get something off loreley the private club GM from episode 10 every day.

"Easy to stick your fingers you get something welcome to Mosaic of China a podcast about people who are making their Mark in China. I'm your host Oscar folks home in our third special compilation episode from season one. We listen to how my guests all answered the question. Is there anything that still mystifies or surprises you about life in modern China off and I really enjoyed asking this question because it elicited a kind of wonder in people's responses and that's not just confined to outside as living in China. It applies just as universally to those who have lived decades and of course even with the Chinese themselves, To follow along with the visuals that accompany today's episode. Please go to Mosaic of China on Instagram or Facebook, or you can add me on WeChat my account Oscar 10877 and I'll add you to the listeners group there. I've posted my own surprising addition there which was something that just took place last week. Eric olander the journalists from episode 3 every single day. I mean this place is the complexity of it never ever cease to amaze me and there's this great chart actually that was circulating on social media. It shows aged versus time being here. So the people who have been here for one year all want to write the book on China and not the longer you go here the amount of time you spend here the less you actually know so the X Y axis and it just keeps going down down down down and I am extraordinary humble about what I know and don't know. I have a graduate degree in Chinese foreign policy. I've spent thirty years here. I've been studying Chinese. I think I know a little bit compared to westerners and other Outsiders. And by the way, the Chinese themselves are not very well educated about their own country. A lot of the people who are raised in the cities. Don't know much about the countryside Same by the way in my own country as well. It's too big for any one person. Really grasp. And so I mean nobody can really understand it. There is no such thing in my view as a China expert. Emily manage the aquarium conservationists from episode 14. Oh everything everything mystifies me. I think every day there's something that fascinates me. I still I still can't get my head around any of it, but it's it's fabulous. Simonetta the business leader from episode 17. Everything should mystify about life in China, you know, they're guys are here or like six months to a year and they know everything about China, you know, and then and then you here for like two or three years onwards and suddenly things are confusing Five Years on you got no idea what's going on at any one point in time off. Sebastian the Nez inclusion Advocate from episode 11 almost everyday Travis something that is. Oh I didn't think this would be possible. One of the the latest one was I was running around the city and and I actually found a bike symmetry. You noticed those off sharing bikes. They go somewhere to die. And this place is like five football fields. It's the other side of the sharing economy is what do you do with this? It's also for me pictures a lot of how Innovation goes in China, which is Let's Do It Go for with forward with it then sought to regulate and then eventually effects the issues that are going to happen. Whereas in Europe or Western countries. It's a little bit that's not do it because we have this and that and that reason right so it's more finding reason not to do it here in China it's more going forward. This is why I think the country goes also very fast in that in that area. Tum, pakka the Diplomat from episode 25 everything about life in China surprised me. I spent every day constantly made there isn't at least five things which seemed freaked me out. Then I'm probably not leading my bedroom and Roscommon the theater producer from episode 22 everything. I mean, think if there's something that surprises me, it's the I still have capacity to be surprised. You know, like, how am I surprised when this is like, this is my everyday, you know, every new thing that I learn and every new Quirk of foul language my friend Jean taught me this lovely one the other day. It was something about how if people tell you that they met watching the football then it means that they met when were in prison. All right, how do you even find something like that out? Like that's actually a thing. Is it seemingly? Yeah. Okay lucija the marketer for sprite from home. Said 5 it's about what we discussed before it's about the differences versus nuances, but the nuances make big difference and and it's the way that they're mine are. Every time. I trying to think that the logical that they're using to respond to a certain stimuli and and in in its read me the most money each time. You learn a new insight. It's a new surprise. Definitely GT Chang the translator from episode 24 people can really spend home shop. Like especially when I was a working in like an office, you know building environment you kind of go out with lunch with colleagues and just like why are you looking at Thursday is really expensive that willingness to spend still mystified me cuz I think in my mind, I'm still a poor student. I haven't quite left that mentality left yet, right? Yep.

Lexi Comstock, the cookie supplier from episode twenty I would say again just how quickly things move here. So this has been the constant from 2010 until now things move and update. So so quickly and that is just I think so unique to China at this very moment and anything from food safety laws to traffic laws to construction to.
