Do We Really Need an International Pronouns Day?
"Did you know today according to the Department of State? Is international pronouns day? That's right. The Department of State has come out and they've said today on international pronouns day, we share why many people list their pronouns on their email and social media profiles. The branch of diplomacy for the federal government of the United States is on share dot America dot gov says why do so many Americans list pronouns on social media profiles? This is the concern of your government. In the United States, it's becoming increasingly common for people to share their pronouns. Third person personal pronouns are used to describe a person or people in American English grammar as the subject or the object of the possessive. These pronouns include the gender neutral they them theirs, words that traditionally refer to a plural number, but today are used by some individuals who identify as gender non binary.

I just don't want any hebrew speakers to read them. I think if it was if it'd been left to just the first go at this when she initially it was reported. And i think you know maybe lost in translation initially seemed like she was saying. I won't miss my book in the hebrew language. That how. I sort of went into circulation this story and that shocked everyone and she would be a slam dunk nominee for ward. Then because it was as if i didn't want to taint of this jewish language touching. My book came out with this statement. Which i thought was very clever. Because she's sort of dealt with well clever not wholly in a positive way. It was sort of canny because what she did was she dealt with all the first objections and you notice quite a lot of people who had initially criticized then backed off because she said no problem with hebrew just needs to be an israeli publisher who complies with the standards boycott divestment sanction. So finding that by the way and and she said it'd be an honor to be in hebrew.

The Regime Being Run By Pharmaceutical Companies With Daniel Horowitz
"Daniel, and one of your pieces of my memory serves me well, I'm going to dig it up. You allude to the fact that this really is a regime that is being run by pharmaceutical companies. That this is about the small group of pharmaceutical companies that are calling the shots. Is it that sinister? Is it that diabolical Daniel or is there another explanation to this? I mean, I think it's broader than that, but certainly one of the lead ships in that armada of the system when you talk about the system, the cabal, the globalists, it's the pharmaceuticals. And I love how you call it the Fauci virus. China virus is really off message. The likely knew about it and maybe they had some involvement. This ain't the Chinese. They used Wuhan because it was offshore. This was done by UNC UNC Chapel Hill berwick, Jurassic, Fauci, and all the pharmaceuticals that were in it. By the way, fun fact, UNC Chapel Hill, which is the ground zero for the getting function of research for coronaviruses. You know that they're the ones who had Remdesivir. Gilead, somehow got ahold of it. Look it up. UNC Remdesivir. How is it that the only thing that was ever approved, which as I wrote yesterday have an article on this at the blaze NIH's own website says it causes liver toxicity and renal failure and we're seeing that with Sony patients, which is why a lot of people come in moderate moderate COVID, they should get over just like they go into the hospital with pneumonia every year. COPD, we have this treatable and they die. And it is the Remdesivir. It's one vicious cycle. So they'll look at Ivermectin C we can't use that and they're like, okay, let's say we're wrong and it's a sugar pill. But it is literally safer than Tylenol, won the Nobel Prize.

Jen Psaki Flubs Question Over China Missile Development
"That. Now I want to go to a Jen Psaki whopper yesterday. And were you in the press room yesterday? Yes. Okay. Do you know what I'm going to get? I don't know. Okay. It is cut number 17. You comment on reports that China has saved a nuclear capable hypersonic missile over this summer to the surprise of your professional as accurate and raised concerns about Chinese people's capability. I know general secretary Austin, I should say, was asked this question this morning and addressed it. But I'm not going to comment on the specific report. I can say echo what he said, which is generally speaking, we've made clear our concerns about the military capabilities that the PRC continues to pursue. And we have been consistent in our approach with China. We welcome stiff competition, but we don't do not want that competition to veer into conflict. And that is certainly what we convey privately as well. We welcome stiff competition, caught the eye of every person who follows nuclear weapons and especially hypersonics, Michael scheer. Did that sound like a clunker off of your ear when you heard it? Yeah, it did. I mean, you know. Welcoming stiff competition is what you normally think of in terms of perhaps development of consumer technology or something that doesn't have national security implications. It's hard to imagine the administration truly welcoming stiff competition when it comes to development of nuclear weapons or advanced advanced deployment systems of nuclear warheads. I mean, so yes that seemed to me to be at odd way of phrasing that

Why China Is Laughing at Joe Biden With David Goldman
"Welcome back to one on one with David Goldman. David, we've been discussing these issues for so very, very long. We have also alighted on your recommendation, numerous times. You visited us in The White House and made it first then I think that we need a new space race. We need that speech at rice university from a president who just gets America back into some national program that gets us to a Pinnacle of research and development. I got to ask you last week we had the launch into space of a 90 year old American captain Kirk Bill Shatner made it on a what was it 5 minute space ride? That's not exactly what you're talking about is it, David, you're talking about something big. Yeah, live long and prostate. But you're talking about something a bit larger than Jeff Bezos is vanity project. It's how you know. Seth, you and I have been talking about decoupling at least some parts of the U.S. economy from China for years. As of last month, U.S. imports from China are up 30% since 2018 when Trump started going after them. That's because the body administration has thrown trillions of dollars of people and giving people an incentive to say out of the workforce, people have money to spend, but we can't find the workers because of the disincentives created by government programs. So we've got to buy the goods from China. China's exports to us are booming. They are now equal to 27% of our manufacturing GDP. It's an astonishing number. That is. We need to rebuild American industry. We've got a business elite that doesn't care about manufacturing, doesn't care about manufacturing communities or workers. We need to reverse
Is There Civilian Control of the Chinese Military? Author David Goldman Explains
"Welcome back to one on one with David Goldman. David, you mentioned the military, the hubris potentially of the Chinese of the people's ironically titled Liberation Army. Is there, let me ask you, we're supposed to have civilian control of the military and democracies. Is that civilian control of the military in the communist regime that is China is Xi Jinping? Does he have a grip on the military brass? Or could that be a hot headed incident where one of his generals gets a little bit out of control and a Cold War gets hot very quickly? Fujian pink spent his first years in power firing a lot of generals and putting his people in place. None of the analysts I know think that a military coup against Xi Jinping or a breakaway military operation is likely, of course, and that opaque system, we never really know what's going on. But the military has gotten all the things it likes. It's gotten a massive development budget for its missile forces for its air force. They've improved that considerably. They've got dozens of diesel electric submarines, they're building new aircraft carriers. So if you're a Chinese soldier, you'd probably be pretty pleased with the kind of support that the government is giving you a lot more than say if you were in American soldier looking at the kind of support the Biden administration isn't giving to our armed forces. Right,
'You Will Be Assimilated' Author David Goldman on China's Contempt for the U.S.
"China is not an enemy. And I think that's important for people to clearly understand. China is a rising power, China has been a rising power since Deng Xiaoping in 79. And they are going to develop themselves in our developing themselves into a great power. That is not to say, however, that they are an enemy. They're not an enemy. They're just a great power. That's according to the chairman of the joint chiefs when he was speaking in his private capacity as chief of staff of the army. The NATO summit, maybe that explains a lot about Mark Billy. We'll discuss the realities of what China thinks they are to us and how they're eating our lunch with the man that we always rely upon to tell us about the geo strategic reality in Asia and in Beijing. He's the author of a fabulous work you must check out right now. It's you will be assimilated. China's plan to Sino form the world. David Goldman. Welcome to one on one. A sub gorka it is an honor and privilege to spend fine with you, sir. Thanks for the invitation. I just realized I'm looking at the cover of your book that the Chinese dragon has a pair of iPhone ear pods in. That's a very nice little touch there. I missed in the past. David, we'll talk about Millie. We'll talk about the truth of China Beijing. Xi Jinping and everything else. But first, I have to ask you. The imagery of these super cargo ships off the port of LA, the president of the United States saying, oh, no, don't worry about it. And then Jen Psaki saying, oh, that's a high class issue. People having the Christmas present. So that's, you know, the pipes don't worry about that. Let me ask you, let's think like the Chinese Communist Party for a moment. What does China think of the fact that America can't unload its cargo ships? The Chinese have contempt for us. They think they can take us. We just published an a four times an excerpt from a book by Chinese economist used to be the chief economist of the World Bank Chicago university PhD. Who says, look at history. Look at the United States versus England at the end of the 19th century. The English were lazy complacent and the United States come from behind, took them out and ate their lunch. That's exactly what we're going to do to the United States now. We've got the people. We've got the supply chains. We've got the technology. We've got the will to do it. America's lazy and feckless and their right for the
Students in China Are 'Crushing It' Academically
"We had some wonderful supporters of the show, callers listeners who gave a very large donation to one of our charities last year. So we invited them here to have lunch with me. They came into the studio last week. And I didn't know anything about them upset their great supporters. They just returned from four years in China, where they were running an international school day. It's a bit like, you know, the Soviet Army, an international school has to have a Chinese headmaster and a western headmaster. This lady was the western principle and her husband was one of the teachers. And she told me this story her students were just absolutely to use the vernacular crushing it academically. And they were traveling to Oxford in Cambridge, being given scholarships going to the best schools, all of them getting the best grades in the stem subjects. None of them started the humanities. It was all biology, mathematics, engineering, and so forth. And they just dominating the global academic environment. Isn't that indicative? It's not Parton parcel of this worldview that the current regime has and how the people beneath the regime are gobbling up global assets. 11 million Chinese kids take the college entrance exam each year. That's a gaucho. 50% of them are going to get university places. In other words, the Chinese government sets the threshold for failure at 50% because they know that's going to give the maximum motivation to their kids. And they work their hearts out for years, only half of them will pass. That is a brutal and ruthless meritocracy. The devil takes the hindmost. Here, we can't tolerate failure. Every kid's got to be above average. Everyone's equaled some are more equal than others, and we people who have a political lobby behind their particular ethnicity or sexual orientation. And whereas the Chinese tend to major as you said, in the stem subjects, take the toughest stuff, only 7% of our kids take engineering. We graduate 40,000 mechanical engineers a year. That's why Tim Cook says he can't build an iPhone in the United States. So the Chinese think the world is going to be there. They're on all of what the United States used to be. And they want to be the United States of 1890 crushing Britain and eating Britain's

When We Make Decisions Based on Diversity Instead of Competency, America Suffers
"That when we start to organize society, or when we start to make decisions based on things that people can not change versus on things they can change such as diversity or skin color, not competency and excellence, then all of a sudden you're going to start to see society suffer because of it. And a great example of this is what happened in Afghanistan, which I think we've forgot about way too quickly. What happened in Afghanistan was a publican international humiliation where we gave $85 billion to the Taliban. We gave up the Bagram air base. The sacrifices of so many military members went for not. And let me be very clear. I was all for ending the war in Afghanistan. But if all of a sudden I said, hey, you know, you're the kidney that gets removed. You take out a pocket knife and you start to do, like, that's not a good idea, okay? Go to a professional who knows what they're doing. There's a good way and a bad way to do something that needs to be done. And getting out of Afghanistan, Robinson, hey, let's arm the enemy, give the embassy up, not patrol the air base, Americans are stranded for months on end, give China the upper hand with the entire evacuation, give up the strategic air base. And the reason in the opinion of, I think anyone looks at it objectively, is that the head of the United States military, Mark milley along with Lloyd Austin and Joe Biden, if you consider him to be the head of anything, which is, which is, they were testifying in front of Congress back in June, saying that the existential threat to America was white rage, and that we're not going to apologize for implementing critical race theory diversity equity inclusion or this sort of new history into the military. Into the military of all places. The military that by definition, every person here should want the military to be a place where competency ranks that you don't land the plane, your national security is at risk. You're not able to eliminate the enemy, your national security is at risk. Should all of a sudden, we'd be worrying about these arbitrary academic exercises of diversity equity inclusion or saying, hey, we have the greatest fighting force in the history of the world, probably not worth messing that up for some sort of esoteric abstract academic
Our Faith Touches Everything
"The Germans bought into this stupid idea. They thought, hey, we're German, which means we're Lutheran, which means Luther invented Christianity as far as we're concerned. He invented this idea of grace, grace means I don't have to do anything, and that's that. And of course, Bonham wrote about cheap grace and the idea that if you don't really understand grace, you treat it like nothing. You know, you treat what God has done for you like nothing, which means you don't get it, which means you don't believe which means forget about grace. There's no grace because you have an appropriate degree. I really believe for other reasons the church in America today has done the same thing. I think there are different reasons, but there are tons of people who've excoriated people like me and Frank and said, you've made an idol of politics. You've made an idol of Donald Trump. You know, ridiculous things. And the point is no, we just believe that our faith touches everything. It's not some little parochial religious thing that stays in the corner, like the official church is doing China. It's something that has to come out of the church and live everywhere. We have a free exercise of religion, freedom to do that. So if you keep it in this little religious theological corner, then it's phony. It's abbreviated faith. If you don't live it out in the school, on the workplace, on the radio, on the whatever it is, if you don't do that, you don't really believe it. Your phony. So when people talk about, I just want to preach the gospel. I don't want to be I don't want to be political. We think that's just stupid. That makes no sense. Because if you're a Jew in a boxcar going to Treblinka or Auschwitz, you think, you know, I would love it if there was some Christians out there on the other side of this boxcar who believed what they said and would get political and stand up against the system that is sending me my family to death. That means getting political.

What Does the Constitution Really Say About Freedom of Religion?
"Americans really now need to understand what does the constitution say about religion. And I remember years ago, Hillary Clinton referred to freedom of worship, and I remember chuck Coleman at the time saying, wait a minute, forget about freedom of worship. It's about freedom of religion. Freedom of worship. They have in China. You go into your little weird building on Sunday morning. Do your little weird mystical stuff. And when you come out, you bow to the secular authority of the state. That's the opposite of freedom of religion. Freedom of religion says 24 7, you can exercise your faith. You can live out your faith. You can talk about your faith. You can do things with regard to your faith. You can refuse to do things with regard to your faith. That is an incredibly broad right. And we, in America, because we've been so blessed with freedom, have really just taken our eye off the ball in terms of what it is. And so when somebody says, do something you go, oh, okay, without realizing, like, wait a minute. I am free. Well, just to be clear, let's say let's speak theoretically, right? I'll be like Arthur Miller with a Harvard Law School. He used to do these round table things on PBS or something. You need to say, well, what about in this case? What if it's the Bubonic plague? It's not COVID, which where people get a cold and they inflate the numbers and make it sound like everybody's dying. Let's say tons of people are dying in the streets. That becomes a different issue. In other words, if somebody says, hey, I don't mind spreading the Bubonic plague. You'd say, well, your religious liberty doesn't extend to that because people are dying in the streets because the science actually backs

"The connectivity equal mortar. I would water so Another patriot on subscriber. Dominic leeson asks. Do you feel you have a particular affinity with the chinese culture and if so what in particular and where do you think that stems from. Dominic is my oldest friend. We grew up together in north west. London now lives in chester. And i haven't seen him since. I was eleven. Wow look at that point of. Yeah exactly. We reconnected on social media. A few years ago and randomly he joined the group. And it has been the point of connectivity with us again. And he's he is the ultimate person i want to attract. He has no connection with china. No connection at all. But there's just that curiosity and he stuck around so you dominic. Your question is an interesting one. The answer is no in fact. I would say i was scared of chinese culture at the beginning and so no. It's not a natural affinity. It's one that. I have grown to love and i guess that speaks to. I'm doing this. Maybe i haven't thought about it this way but it's like i can put myself into the situation of someone who doesn't necessarily have indeed to china and can make a bit more comfortable for them to actually engage with chinese culture But i think what dominance question is trying to get at is actually what vladimir failure vic is asking quite directly so vladimir asks. I'd be interested to hear how you decided to live in china. Long-term was it spontaneous or gradual. And well-planned Fishbowl who's vladimir. I don't know vladimir. So i mean i'm glad you asked because at the beginning of this project and probably you can relate to this as well. You're very needy in terms of just give me some support here and now in season two big differences that i am less needy about that so i have many friends who have never heard an episode of the gossip many family members. And that's fine. I really appreciate people like ladder. Who have just heard about it. They've said that they enjoy it. And they then make the conversion to becoming a patron supporter. and that's great wonderful so answering question Now it wasn't well planned in fact. None of my career moves have been well planned. God this is going to sound terrible. But i moved to china for love. It wasn't financial. Because i got taxed a lot when i came to china but that was the reason i came. And it's the reason i'm still here. Actually oh dear. That's why i'm here to right. You know. I'm okay with that. Because i like being here. Yeah but it seems actually quite fitting that. You came here because of another connection. You've done it. You have managed to find a way to end this interview. Thank you so much for coming over. I really appreciate you. Rebecca thank you so much for listening and for being you. Oh it's really lovely to just have a conversation with you. And i'm a huge fan. I'll send thank you to peter. Dominick and vladimir for submitting those questions. Sorry that i didn't prepare better answers i. Purposefully didn't think about them until the interview and wealth. You heard the results. But i was inspired by my conversation with rebecca and this new concept of mortar. This idea of listeners. Being the connective cement without which the tiles of the mosaic simply wouldn't stick is something that i will definitely be incorporating into the future of the show so if you're subscriber on patriots or the equivalent in china i again then you can expect to be more involved in the run up to three of the show which i'll start working on later in the year. I'll post previews there of who i'm about to interview so that you can submit questions to the guests directly and also try to do more at the time of release so a big. Thank you rebecca for helping to come up with that idea joining our chat but back to season two. We still have fifteen more episodes coming your way. I'm really looking forward to sharing them with you. But i'm actually going to take another couple of weeks of the weather is getting warmer in china. So i've decided to do some travel before coming back to you. With the second. Half of the season so please catch up with any of the episodes. You may have missed. And i'll see you again in may..

Very good guy called declan and he's from an interesting family. He's doing a very cool. Business is a small island next to shanghai with october. First of all tell me. How do you know actor. She designed my suit and my wife's dress either wedding through the contradiction for my father. Well there you go and she said that you come from an interesting unsure. We will discuss that as part of our discussion today. But before we do that the first thing i would ask anyone in that chair is what object did you bring that in some way represents your life in china I brought a very humble rock from sin silent. This rock is something that we try to incorporate in design for shops on silent and We try to use as much local stuff as possible and so local fishermen would use these rocks to way down the nets when fishing. So it's really cool. And it's very durable and i usually give this as a gift to all my friends who visit me. Awesome sloughing excellent. Oh as a gift. So what what do they use. Ideally i tell them to use as a candle holder. This raucous for you excellent. Okay thank you so much weight so this rock here has been at. The bottom of the ocean has it.

"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.

How research and innovation based here in tokyo and you moved to japan shortly after our recording. So you've been there now for over a year by now right. Yes that's right and so what has been your story Well I think Been fortunate that Everyone has been healthy from a family standpoint and from From a work standpoint you know a lot of the things that make tokyo magical. 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.

"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.

"Michael V. The Instagram influencer from episode 7. I will one of my new favorites is Heritage by Madison, which is a lovely new restaurant down at the bulb Financial Center. 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,.

"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.

"Heard this afternoon, which is at the skin of durians is not considered organic matter. And so when you talk about Shanghai recycling regime that they're introducing and where you put certain items of your household waste if you have a direct pin it is not food waste because of I assume because durians disgusting Yummy the broadcaster from episode 21 in Chinese. We call Joel. I don't know how to translate into English a search on Wikipedia is called Doctrine off the main doctrine of the main. Yes. Yeah, I think it's psychology about baddest the Chinese medicine use his philosophy in Chinese medicine. If you are sick, they didn't try to find a reason behind that just keep your body balance at that time when the body came out and you will feel better off and you the jewelry Craftsman from episode 18. Okay. So the first time I heard this fact, I was fascinated and shocked and Shanghai itself is around 26 million people. The entire Taiwan is no more than three million people and this just blow my mind. Simon manetti the business leader from episode 17. There are more English speakers in China than there are in the United States. It's a good reminder of the diligence and not approach to education here and also reflection of China's scale. 2500 the compliance leader from episode 15 the most interesting fact, I always try to tell every visitor who comes to China you can write your name in Chinese at all. So if I say for example screening there is no way in which you can write screen e in Chinese it is a mathematics. Can you write train in vain lyrics know because you have got nine characters which can represent the entire mathematics and in those nine characters. You can create a combination called a screening and that's the most part for me is and I open it and shutting down my chain is classes. Thank you so much for listening. And please share your own child created facts with me on social media. We are on Mosaic of China on Instagram or Facebook or add me on my WeChat ID Oscar 10877 and I'll add you to the listeners Community wage. Next week, we will be at the halfway point of these compilations and we will also be around the halfway point of twenty-twenty. This has been a tumultuous year. And right now we're still tumultuous times. So I'm going to continue trying to offer some respite and next week's episode will be on perhaps the most frivolous of all topics the best and worst purchases that my guests have made in China. I'll see you then. 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. Great. Thank you.

"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. I was surprised by people's Dynamic the.

"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. Funny because actually the reputation of the Chinese in general is that they're good Savers, but you're right good Savers and get suspended at the same time. Which which is I think that's a philosophical question. Generally The Invention Company CEO from episode six how the old people can be adaptive to technology that is surprising like my grandma. She's eighty-eight. She hopped. She has iPhone xsmax. Oh my God, and she just wanted the largest wage thing and she won have we chat and she doesn't like to type which had has the audio message and the stickers most important things. She can collect the red pack. So we have the family group that every day. We just send some like, you know, ten quiet or five quite red pack and she's happy like that. Just somehow is the simplest the connection of em, And then I found out like a lot of people like me if their grandparents lived back in Hometown. They do the similar thing. 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.

And, welcome as well to the first of ten special compilation episodes from season one. If you've been listening to this season, you will already know the different intra-. Music that things aren't quite the same as usual. And if you're entirely new to cost a third and special welcome to you. In a usual episode of the show will interview one person and that interview starts with a freestyle compensation based on an object at the guest house prepared in advance, and it ends with the guest. Nominating someone for me to interview in the next season of mistake of China. and. That's how tile by tile the thirty episodes of each season build out to form a mosaic of China. But before they make this nomination, I ask every guest the same ten simple questions on their tastes and opinions of life in China. and. It's the onset to these ten questions that form the content for these ten special compilation episodes. Today's compilation is about the guests favorite travel destinations in China. I wanted to get this one out of the way I because as a subject, it's perhaps the most ironic of the ten given that none of us have got any travel planned for the foreseeable future. But I hope that you'll at least be taking some notes for when the Boorda's finally reopened and transport networks begin to home again. Mandra the compliance leader from episode fifteen.

I Love Hull City, and I remember until nine every time when I and I go there. It's some kind of peaceful emotion I always get there something unexplainable and I think it's different. When you go to Europe, it's different kinds of peace you find in Honduras really like does all Chinese times when you reading the books, it's exactly that. Philippe gas the Disney Revolt Theo from episode one. I. Think one of the most memorable trip I have made in China. Tibet. Eighteen months ago I had the chance with a few friends to go to Lhasa and just travel. In Tibet's and it's been a fascinating experience at many levels cultural religious. Geographic you know arriving and then the place is full thousand, forty, six, hundred meters east a shock. As, you arrive some of my friends were shocked immediately, it took me a little bit more time but it was fascinating beautiful and standing how people leave their religion.

Maple swore the comedian from episode to. Tibet. I. Love it because when my partner proposed me, there we climbed. Ninety hours in the day. To the top mountain, and then there was a beautiful Blue Lake? And the above. That was sno- snow's on the Monte was so pure and the name of the lake caught the God tears. And then over the lake, there was some stone. And on the stone, there was a buddha like Yukon CBA is a natural buddha thing and with the Buddha shadow that contained a whole Buddha image. So that's amazing meals. I got this I believe in God in that moment. And you the judiciary craftsman from episode eighteen. Tiffany.

Yes I think China has fantastic places I feel every time I feel amazing and I love the even more. octo Joan, the fashion designer from episode thirty. I think where I am shocked by. Actually. Some of the old Hong Kong culture was influenced by Shanghai. So you can see so many poet lift here and Some of the famous political person, all condensed so many different types of people. So that means is very good city for you to connect different ideas and then you can find your own way. View the fitness community leader from episode.

"china " Discussed on Mosaic of China
"Beauty of the ten questions at the end is that now I can edit down the podcasts and do special compilation episodes of how everyone. Those. Ten questions. Okay. So this is what I've been doing for the last two months. I've just compiled them into special episodes on your favorite. China related a fact or on your favorite place to hang out and each of them really work well as a compilation episode. I never thought about that I haven't thought about it either to the extent that I thought I'm going to sit down and actually do it because. Who has the time to do that? Well, actually I didn't have the time. And I really enjoyed doing that because it's nice to hear all the different voices of the season together in one episode. And it sort of at the same time makes me feel about these thirty people even though they're so different and some have never even met each other they also have belonged together he and so I think without these compilations they all stand alone and I think with these compilations they now form something, which is sort of more unit which I've really enjoyed. So I have ten episodes now which I will release every two weeks. Allow Yeah. So that means I've got some content which I can drip out in the next twenty weeks, which hopefully will give me some time to towards the end start to record season two. So at the end of that process, hopefully, I'll be ready to release season two. Yeah that's fantastic and these these are going to be I think great episodes for a number of reasons for all the reasons that you mentioned but also because. They have such potential to reach out to people who aren't in mosaic of China right now like if on my feet something came up, that said Thirty People's answers to the best place to hang out in Shanghai I want to know the best places to hang out in Shanghai. Right? Favorite. Facts about China I want to know all these facts like this is great outreach potential. I agree and also like when it comes to engaging the people who are in those, we chat groups who have been sitting there quietly. Time. Thanks for me bullying them. This allows me to say, okay, it's going to be the episode on your favorite China fact. Now's the time for you guys to share your favorites. China fact this is such a brilliant idea. It's almost like you had this plan from the very beginning because it's such a serendipitous thing to do. Yeah. This is like people talk about the virus is allow me to be more creative and to look things in different angles and I think that's kind of what was inspiring me to do this and especially proud of the k-tvhe answer because. Even went and got the music that they set and have put it on the bed of what they're saying however I can't really sit copyright because copyright I've made the episode. So if somebody wants it, then they can email me and I'll share it privately, but I can't publicize that one. Excellent. One very much looking forward to all of that. I want I, want these episodes I want these compilations well, I. Love what you do. I love how? Engaged you've been with with my project and how helpful not just you actually there have been other people who have been also as generous, but you in particular have been so kind to always give me an onset to have reached out and helped, and so I really appreciate that and I wanted to make sure that your mark also in this is all. I'm very happy to do it and I think that there's real value in helping out other people as well. There are so many people in this day and age everyone's got a podcast, right but not everyone's doing it well, and and so I'm I'm happy to help out where I can when people are making good content that I enjoy listening to. Well, the same goes for you and let's end this podcast on this tone of mutual appreciation in the background music coming in now. Episodes almost. Over. Thank you Josh I'll make sure about that is exactly what we do and it'll sound. So smooth that you'll think clem pro I have.
