US to hold trade talks with Taiwan in new show of support
"The U.S. government plans to hold trade talks with Taiwan an island China claims as its own The announcement comes after an angry Beijing held military drills following this month's visit to Taiwan by U.S. House speaker Nancy Pelosi Taiwan is currently the U.S.'s 9th largest trading partner and being allowed to export more to the U.S. might help Taiwan blunt China's efforts to use its status as the island's biggest trading partner as political leverage China blocked imports of Taiwanese citrus and other food in retaliation for Pelosi's visit and U.S. Chinese relations are at their lowest level in decades I'm John of water

"We had to the nation's capital. 99 one newsroom in Washington and Nancy Lyons take it away. Thanks, Carol. A federal judge in Florida has decided some portions of the affidavit that was used to obtain a search warrant on former president Trump's home can be unsealed and he's given the Justice Department one week to propose redactions in the document. The former CFO for the Trump organization is pleading guilty to more than a dozen felonies. Alan weisselberg entered his guilty pleas in court and he's looking at 5 months behind bars. Loyola law professor Laurie Levinson says, as part of the plea deal, weisselberg will need to testify at the company's trial. Former president Trump is not himself on trial, but certainly the information that's likely to come out about the operation of his organization that they were involved in major frauds, including tax frauds, that its information that at least reputationally in the court of public opinion could affect former president Donald Trump, while professor Laurie Levinson says this tax fraud scheme apparently stretched over 16 years. The U.S. and Taiwan will start formal talks this fall and a trade in economic initiative, but as Bloomberg Washington correspondent Anne Marie horden reports, China is not happy about it. The United States has what China would say provoked Beijing given what we have seen in terms of speaker Pelosi's visit and then senator Ed Markey's visit. So the ministry of China affairs is now warning the U.S. against doing any deal that could imply Taiwan is sovereignty. So what they're saying is that even these talks or how they handle any trade relations, they must respect China's core interests. Bloomberg exam Marie horde says there's little talk in Congress of entering into any trade deals with Taiwan.

We May Be Heading Into Challenging Times for Housing
"Got inflation going on. And then what do you know? We've got the prospect of a potential recession in housing. I mean, you think to yourself, how can that even be possible right now, given how on fire this housing market really has been, and yet some of the recent data both in terms of home affordability and then now what you're seeing in terms of sentiment suggests that we're heading for a more challenging time. As we said, I mean, look, these things are cyclical and you can't have something going up up up and away forever. I mean, you've seen that it's hard to actually get a house because the prices now have gone. So high. And now some are suggesting that, in fact, we are in what you might call a housing recession. This is what home builders are saying in fact confidence among builders in that U.S. housing market has actually plunged the lowest level that we've seen really since. I mean, you're going to go back to March 2020. Of course, they could be totally wrong. I mean, look at what happened after March 2020, the housing market went totally on fire. But this is the national association of home builders, Wells Fargo, housing market index, and it measures kind of the pulse of the single-family housing market to see what the sentiment is for that. And it fell for the 8th straight consecutive month down to 49, which is actually the worst stretch that we've seen for housing since 2008. Any reading above 50 is considered positive when you're at 49, that's considered negative. And so we may be heading into more challenging times for housing.

"The logic of it's got to happen within Xi Jinping's term and she did things term as X number of years. So ipso facto, this is the timeline. I don't actually think the PRC has any desire or intention to lock itself in to a timeline that it might not be able to achieve. Yeah. Now from far away here in the U.S., a lot of people may assume Taiwan and China are these enemies that there's this oceanic Berlin Wall up there, but you have written a lot about economic integration. How much has Taiwan contributed to China's economic power to China's consumer culture today? Without Taiwanese investors, we would not see the Chinese economy that we see today. There is an enormous amount. Nobody really knows, but it is probably somewhere between 500 billion and a $1 trillion of Taiwanese investment in Mainland China. And most of that investment, it's not portfolio investment. It's actual physical facilities, technology, factories, all that stuff. It's a huge relationship, and it's not going away. Yeah. Finally, I mean, you go to Taiwan regularly speak to the people there. How are Taiwanese leaders and people looking at a less powerful country in Europe being invaded by a geopolitical power that is Ukraine invaded by Russia and whether it's a preview of what might happen there? That's a big conversation in Taiwan. Most people don't want to draw the parallel to directly, but I think they recognize that the invasion of Ukraine kind of changed the calculus about what is possible. And I think there was a sense in Taiwan in the last 20 or 30 years that it just doesn't make sense for the PRC to invade Taiwan. What would they have to gain? Look how much they would have to lose. It just can't happen. But I think many Ukrainians had that same calculus about Russia. It just doesn't make sense. You know, a 20th century style invasion with tanks and stuff like who does that anymore? It turns out it can happen. And it has not gone unnoticed in Taiwan that the possibility of actual kinetic catastrophe is
Henry Kissinger Has Issued a Warning We Should ALL Take Seriously
"What Kissinger is saying and what the Democrats are doing. According to Henry Kissinger former Secretary of State, really, really brilliant guy, 99 years old. He's actually out with a brand new book. He sat down and told The Wall Street Journal that America is on edge of war with Russia and China. And he seems to be pointing the finger, although he's doing it in a very diplomatic way, not totally pointing the finger, but suggesting that American politicians really are at fault. In that they're so governed by emotion and they're so governed by sort of the cultural values that are important to us that they're not able to really see a long-term play with some countries that we seem to be at odds with. A little more
Fresh update on "china." discussed on Balance of Power
"The military exercise is that China is launching what has really been a several month and in some ways several years build up of a tougher line on China toward Taiwan. It really goes back as far as 2016 when the current president sang one took office in Taiwan and it's been ramped up throughout the Trump years in a divide years where basically we have this view of the relationship with China as being increasingly a competitive one. And so the idea that we're going to march ever happily forward with interdependence has taken a few steps back and we're seeing both sides, both China and the U.S. trying to insulate themselves from the potential political uses of the economic leverage that comes with interdependence. So when Beijing claims that U.S. is changing its policy toward China and Washington denies that's true, which one's right. They're both right, I think, to some degree. That is some of what the U.S. has done to back Taiwan more strongly and to be more confrontational with China is in response to greater Chinese assertiveness, not only on the question of a possible timetable or at least greater pressure to try to push Taiwan toward unification, but also pushing back against U.S. interests and preferences in a variety of ways. But since the U.S. is doing what it sees as necessary to push back against a more assertive China, China is reading that as the U.S. trying to keep China down and trying to contain China. And the international response led by the U.S. and the response to the war in Ukraine has, I think, upped that. It's sort of baked into the Chinese analysis even further that the U.S. is out to get China now to restrain China. How does this look from president Xi's point of view as he heads into this new party Congress, the plenum, where he's asking for a third renewal of his contract. If I could put it that way. Yeah, he doesn't want to go into that having lost face and I wonder if all these moves within China takes something away from him. Well, and I think we all would have said a few months ago that she didn't pay his top priority would be relative stability, no surprises, no tumult heading into what I think we're all betting is an extremely well high likelihood of a third term. But the world hasn't worked out that way. The Ukraine crisis has been part of it. COVID and the continuing COVID crisis in China has been part of it. Taiwan is more of a chosen problem, but I think in the Chinese view in the view of Xi and those around him, it is that the U.S. has been engaged in what they like to call salami tactics that is moving forward to give Taiwan more status and to raise the risk that China does not have a peaceful way of unifying Taiwan and that of course creates all sorts of crises. So I think it's a much less happy and benign environment than she would have hoped for. And the domestic
Does the Left Care About Violence Intervention?
"I've seen them give 300 $1 billion to the green new energy deal. When India and China are responsible for over 80% of our carbon emission and we think that we are, they think we're stupid enough to somehow believe that India and China can be prolific and carbon emissions and we can spend trillions of dollars cutting back on our minimal exposure there are minimal production of carbon emission and somehow that's going to save the planet. How stupid are we? Now, okay. I've seen initiatives of billions and hundreds of billions, but I have yet to see an initiative and I could be wrong. Somebody call in and correct me. I could be wrong. I have yet to see an initiative by any president ever in the history of our country that I know of that gave a meaningful input and invested meaningful dollars into violence prevention in the inner cities.

Callers Joke Where the FBI Thinks Trump Was Escaping To
"Mike, I think, with all the islands that China is creating, maybe they were going to make a Trump opulence in China. You know what? I'd go there. You think they need to talk radio host? Maybe. I'd be right there on that island. All right, Tim and Perry Oklahoma. Tim, where do you think they thought he was going? I don't know if they know this, but I think he owned some property and a golf course in Scotland. Yeah, he does. Oh, that'd be a good point. Maybe they thought he was going to go to Scotland. All right, good guess. 806 5 5 Mike. James and St. Augustine, Florida. Where do you think he was headed, James? Well, according to the leftist he's running to Russia because of the whole Trump Russia collusion thing that I'm pretty sure they're going to spin it that he was going to get asylum in Russia somehow. Bingo. But he would stay and he was going to stay in Putin's Doc O. He was going to be in one of the duke or duke of one of his one of his summer villas.
We're in an Ideological War for All the Marbles
"In an ideological war for all the marbles? No, I couldn't agree with you more, Eric. And when you think about the difference with Donald Trump, putting China on notice, punishing them for intellectual theft property, getting into a trade war with them that we ended up winning and you figure out the difference between that and the guy that sits there now who has an office reserved for the big guy in a Beijing office tower somewhere because hunter has business connections there and all the things that are compromised by. It really is a stark contrast. And look, you say it'll be too late in the next election. There are a lot of us that are looking at the actual X's and O's and wondering if it isn't too late already. I mean, the amount of damage that could still be done if people don't show up this November and stop the Congress in the Senate from being allies to the current White House resident. It would be devastating. If we gave this crew another two years of unchecked power, we would never recover from it. And so we've got to speak up nice and loud in about 80 days and send these people home.

The Left's Working Theory About Trump Violating the Espionage Act
"If you believe that Trump is guilty of violating the espionage act, you do understand what that means, right? He wanted to do America harm. He wanted to sell classified documents to foreign adversaries. For a profit, because he needs the money. And he wants to put America in harm's way. Now let that sink in. If you think he's guilty of violating the espionage act, that means he wanted to do America harm. And the, the working theory is that he was hoarding classified documents with the intent of selling them to North Korea to Russia, to China, because he was going to make a lot of money on it. Now, it would be a good self examination for you to answer this question. If you think that's remotely plausible, get thee to a psychiatrist. Go to a pasture, go to your priest, go to a therapist, rush into the loving arms of somebody who can shake you into reality.

Why You Should Fight 'Social-Emotional Learning' (SEL)
"James, a lot of parents here and watching online and listening for the rebroadcast. They hear these terms social emotional learning. It sounds so unassuming. What should the response be if they find out their kid or their school district is pushing social emotional learning? You've got to fight that. I would tell you that you need to understand and I've spoken to moms for liberty conference recently in front of all these moms, hundreds of moms. And I said, you know, what I want you to come home from this with, is this idea. If you knew, and I mean this, this is what social emotional learning really is and I'm skipping a few details to get to it, but if you knew you were sending your kids to a Maoist re-education prison for 35 hours a week, what would you do differently in your life? Because that is actually what it is. I read the books about Maoist thought reform, written by psychologists who studied people that were coming to Hong Kong fresh out of exile from China fresh out of Mao's prisons where they were indoctrinated into Maoist communism, and it's exactly the same program. So social emotional learning, if your kids, if it's happening, you have to fight it, I would tell you you need to protect your kids. If that means yanking them out of that school and guarding them, it means yanking them out of the school and taking whatever, extra steps you have to take to protect your children. It

Democrats Are the Model for Communist China
"Do you ever know of any? Have you ever encountered a misnomer of that grandiosity in your life? What is united? About the United States and communist China? Well, the truth is, under Democrats, there is a model there. The lockdowns were the proof. Reading Naomi Wolfe's book on this just verifying what I said from the beginning within a month, but the lockdowns were preparation for a police state, a rehearsal for a police state. Please understand at least half of America. Does not fear a police state. And in fact, welcomes it.
Seb Talks to Kash Patel About the Purpose of Security Clearances
"I have so many things I want to dissect with you. Let's start by let's talk about clearances and classified information. Yeah. So I've still got my clearance. I gained a clear inside of clearance, a secret clearance in the British Army. I got a TSS CI in The White House when I came in and I think most people don't understand why the clearance system exists and why we have classified information and who the intelligence agencies of America work for. So would you as somebody who's worked in Congress convicted terrorists to the DoJ ran The Pentagon, why do we have intelligence services? And who are they writing their classified products for cash? Yeah, that's a great starting point. We'll get to their failures in the second, but classified information serves a purpose set. It's to protect American national security interests, which means you are protecting Americans. And sometimes the information is so sensitive, we don't want it out there in the public. IE. We don't want to tell Baghdadi that we're coming to get him because we put it out on Twitter. We don't want the facebooks of the world to know the positions of our hostages before we go and get them. Those are just obvious examples, but the better point is the intelligence collection doesn't always necessarily lead to an end state. It shapes policy at The White House and how we defend against Russia, China, and Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism and the like. So there is a need and a purpose for classified information. But the over classification of information has become a systemic problem and the failure of agencies to be able to share with each other is another problem that I tried to fix when I was deputy director of national intelligence.
Eric Trump: FBI Raid Was Directed by the White House
"Eric Trump on newsmax. This does not happen without presidential consent. You know The White House new Mark my word, they're out there today saying that no one in The White House knew this was a 100% mark my word directed by the White House. This is a political hit on my father. They know Biden's floundering the polls. He's doing absolutely horrible. And so what do they do? They put on a stunt like this. And I want everybody to remember, God forbid, I hate having to say this, but if there's ever another terrorist attack in this country, if there's ever another school shooting in this country, the next time you see a serial killer in this country, I want everybody to remember that the FBI spent all their resources going into Mar-a-Lago to look for effectively records for a public library, you know, rather than being focused on China who's ripping off America every single day rather than being focused on the threats that plagued this country, terrorism that wants to come in here, Al-Qaeda. By the way, that raid, 9 hours, 9 hours they were rummaging around immoral Lago. Eric Trump now says, and this is coming from the attorneys, the Trump attorneys. They said they were shown the warrant from a distance, but they were told that they were not allowed to observe anything. They had to leave the building and here's the most important part of this folks. And this is why we know something else was going on in Mar-a-Lago. They told the Mar-a-Lago staff to turn off all of the security cameras. So
Don't Miss What John Zmirak Has to Say About the FBI Raid
"John, you and I need to process what we couldn't process yesterday. Something unprecedented, something that I still am having a hard time making sense of, at least on some levels. But what happened the other night, why don't I let you tell the story? It is one of the most bizarre things certainly in my lifetime. I don't know what to make of it. I was on the phone with our good friend Jason Jones, wonderful human rights activist pro life back to this. And he told me the FBI has just rated Donald Trump's house in Mar-a-Lago. And I tell you, and I have a column about this coming out today. I had a feel. I had this experience. I had the feeling I had when I heard that news. Was the same feeling I had on 9 11. When I heard that the towers have been attacked, that The Pentagon had been attacked. We didn't know who did it. It might be Russia. It might be China. We had no idea at that point. A feeling like I'm in an elevator with a cable has snapped. I had that feeling one other occasion. The day in 1990 one when the hard line communists in Russia tried to overthrow Gorbachev and reimpose hardline communism. I had that same feeling of absolute vertigo. Like I was leaning out the window of the Empire State Building, looking down on an abyss. And I'll tell you why. That day, I realized that for most of my life, I assume that I knew how I would die in a nuclear war. There are nuclear explosions. I would not have grandchildren, but not of children. Nobody would remember me because all my Friends would be dead and everything I had ever known would be destroyed. That's how I grew up assuming I would die. And I had nightmares about it, where I would see my body get burned up by a blast wave or see myself dying of radiation in the wake of a nuclear war. And I was just that was the endgame that I assumed for my life and the life of everyone I knew. Until Gorbachev and Reagan worked out sort of ratcheted down the Cold War, I realized that on some level this dark certainty that had hung over my life had gradually lifted. And on that day in 1991, when the look like the communist generals were bringing back the Cold War, it all came rushing back. And I had a sense like I was falling. Same thing on 9 11 and the same thing yesterday. When I heard that the president of the United States was using the FBI like the secret police in Honduras or Guatemala or Venezuela or Liberia or Congo. We are in a lawless regime that will do anything to cling to power.
Biden's Unclear Foreign Policy Is Destroying Trump's Achievements
"When reviewing the record of the Biden administration on foreign policy, let's just review for one second. Where foreign policy was when Joe Biden took office. So there was no open war with Russia, for example, there was no open conflict with China. There was a crackdown on China that was happening. There was a move towards strengthening sanctions against Russia that had been happening and stronger movement on Russia's borders by the Trump administration in the Middle East, peace had broken out, and the simple fact of the matter is that foreign policy might have been the brightest spot of the Trump administration. And Joe Biden has signally capitulated on a variety of issues and he's created tremendous lack of clarity on others. And that lack of clarity leads to further conflict. And one of the key tenets of foreign policy is that lack of clarity leads to miscommunication, miscommunication leads to people making bad assumptions, those bad assumptions lead to actual dead people. This has been the history of foreign policy ranging well back before World War I. And you have the Biden administration where it's not wrong. It is unclear. And that is a serious serious problem.
Pelosi to March Democrats Off Cliff With Inflation Bill Vote
"If we go back and again, you're a PhD. So you may not know much about the Declaration of Independence. But in the Declaration of Independence, there's the glorious language we know, but then Jefferson laid out what is an actual indictment of George the third. One of the particulars is they have sent out armies of officials to eat up our wealth. And that I just think 87,000 IRS agent. So your friends who are Democrats. And I know you've got some friends who are Democrat. I was talking to one last night. My college roommate, a longtime democratic friend saying, you know, Democrats are bent on self destruct, Elaine luria can not win reelection. Having cut the defense budget by inflation alone and having 87,000 IRS agents, she got a vote for that this week. Every Democrat in a tough district is being forced to vote on the IRS expansion act. Will any of them defect well because they did this for Henry waxman ten years ago. They voted for his idiotic climate bill then and now they're going to vote for climate bill that helps people in our income bracket by EVs. Do you think they're actually going to do that 9 weeks before an election? Pelosi seems to be marching them off the cliff right now. And even the New York Democrats and the other salt state Democrats who drew a line in the sand and said, we're not going to vote. Would you explain that? Again, we got steelers fans listening and they're not on peyote. So you could explain salt. Salt states. The state and local income tax state and local tax deduction, something we capped or effectively got rid of depending on what state you live in in the tax cuts and job with the intent of stopping the subsidization of high tax progressive states. Obviously all the members from high tax progressive states objected to that. And so they said, well, we want to eliminate that provision, go back to the status quo pre-tax cuts and jobs act. But even the moderate members who drew that line in the sand have now caved a speaker Pelosi. So with the possible exception of maybe Jared golden, I think she's going to have all her members vote for this. Come Friday,

"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..

One and i was so happy because you'll story was really great. Thank you so much is has a lot of secret inside. It was it was really insightful and as you know from our conversation. I don't know much about fashion so for me. I had a huge learning curve journal. So i can help you to address next time i might be a lost cause i try to be passionate about but you can see failing well i wanted to ask you first of all about your story. During corona virus he s or the shopping mall close. So that means you're shop close. You don't have any revenue for three months. And then in china they recover fast and then they the veterinary start to open on first week of april and then they get into the low mo- put russia and now they're even quicker than before right. Yes and their country that are still in very harsh lockdowns. Things here have really rebounded haven't they. Yeah and the cells. They are having is double digit grove. So it is quite amazing. Because some fashion brand to coroner rows. Things is still very serious overseas so now they move or goose sell in china this right they can pull product that otherwise would be thought out fired a second to china. Yes so you can see some fashion brand like chanel. Like amac's to special edition of the product. They sell in their own country or in europe. Now the move to china to sell did in the earned a lot gosh. I wonder if that's going to be a trend that they're actually going to release in china before their home market. Yes yes the changing really interesting with affecting your brand. Because that's what we talked about our episode. It was your innovative palu jacket. Yes so actually. We are doing very great recently. So that's why. I'm very busy right. Yeah so we had the new edition to become super ultralight. So this jacket. So we first release in. Taiwan and we are very surprised says because we are kind of truffle product and now people cannot travel overseas. what. I was wondering. Who's going to buy a travel jacket on. Yes but because people love travel deeply in their blood either. You cannot travel overseas so they would choose to travel or around their place their own country even taiwan which island. Yeah yeah how interesting okay. And you've chosen taiwan. as the first place to launch. i'm guessing you have plans to launch it in the mainland china next. The next one is japan. Next is japan next japan actually era goal. We almost put all our podcast release or over kendra around and then for china a next steps because china's very competitive for a known brand they know right whereas i guess a taiwanese consumer a- japanese consumer they are maybe more looking out for a small boutique brand like yes. Yes y'all right interesting in. no it's very much oscar. Oh well maybe. I'm secretly a fashion guru after all so i am going to be releasing this episode at the same time as duggan. Who was the person you refer. Oh gee this very good. And you and i went to his island right. Yea neither of us had been there so after. I did the recording. You and i went to talk to me about that we can. Oh my god so we had a very great time. We renter motorbike so we go around old placing in island and then we ate seafood thing. The only thing is when you want have dinner around aches so he can apply any restaurant who can help you yes. It's that kind of mentality right. This dog lynn is saying in his interview. Like it's a work in progress. Yes you can see the fundamentals are there and you can see that. They're making progress and i think it's going to get better and better place a very good time for a place in china. Light that so you can see a lot of commercial opportunity. Yes yen is very good for young generation to have their first trying exactly and then. Of course i joined do. I didn't stay at the same place but then we had a couple of days together and it was really nice to reconnect with you there. Yeah and i should also say that you have reconnected.

Lovely yes so we have the same birthday or we belfer and possess. Take enough to talk. We love arts.

"I'm here with douglas dc. Douglas and you are a friend of october. That's who introduced you. So let me play you the introduction. That octo said about you. From the last series i'm recommending. 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. Yes what they do is they would go out to see and Depending on the seasons there were fish for different things from fishes crabs to Shrimps the entire island for the past. Couple of hundred years is based off of fishing economy until recently after they may transportation more convenient Tourism started boom.

"Here with alex. Shaw and alex you are currently in sausalito in northern california. That is correct. Well thank you so much and tell me what is your usual job title because things are so unusual now but what box should we put you in right now. Well i don't like to put in boxes so i'll give myself options that Yeah my current role is director of strategy at we work. So i actually helping to reimagine the workplace But i'm also the co founder of cedar clean energy which is renewable energy consulting and advisory company based in shanghai. So we have two hats two boxes to put me in today. Wow that sounds pretty. Bifurcated it kind of a metaphor of your life. Yeah you could say that. I think that's the right word. Bifurcated and corona virus Covid nineteen situation has also kind of showed me that whatever box you're in is not really a box at all it just becomes a you know a starting point. Well said well talking starting points. What is the object that you have which in some way typifies your life in china. Yes oh my object is actually a hammock It is a portable travel hanoch and it is something that i have never left home without. You know it weighs seven grams. Excuse me seven ounces. Seven grams would be incredible. I've slept in train stations. Airports fields parks basically allows me to feel like wherever i am. I have a home. Which is kind of a nice feeling when you're someone who travels as much as i do. It's also incredibly useful for someone who travels on airplanes a lot because flights now don't give you blankets and these long flights where they blasted air-conditioning actually sometimes use it as a blanket. And i'm a big napper. So anytime i can i take my afternoon twenty minute to thirty minute nap and this gives me the confidence to do that. So whether i'm going to office. Or whatever is really. I can go and sneak out and find a little parker area to hang a hammock very nice okay and so in that thing unveils and it becomes a big hammock right exactly. Yeah it tax down. Size of fist and unfurled into a luxurious would feels like a queen size bed. I even seen research that sir that you've actually sleep deeper in a hammock because somehow mimics the feeling of being in a womb and so i love my hammock and yeah and it really does go even on You know again day to day to the office and things like that which is a funny segue. Actually because i could talk about how. There is a culture in china where people are encouraged to take a little nap during the middle of the day right. That is a great point. Yeah i i. Obviously i think one of the most shocking things about going into the work world elder into an office is seeing heads down at one pm in across the whole office and some of the most uncomfortable positions i've ever seen Definitely did not acquire that scale. Which i heard something. Most most of them had learned in school You know to be able to sleep with your head on a desk anywhere but Yeah that was certainly a fascinating part. Well from napping. It's hard to move onto the next topic because you are someone who is extremely active. Tell me about what you were up to in shanghai these few years like. How long have you actually been in china. So i moved to china october. Twenty eleven. the the china didn't really was not really in the plan for me. It was a six week trip that got extremely extremely extended within a few weeks. I had actually met someone who had become my business partner in the future. And his name's johnny brow as he's belgian national. We had exchange ideas and so together. We ended up honestly within a series of weeks. We were like had a business plan and we were ready. We already started doing project. So by fourth or fifth week in china we had secured a Interest from a hotel in union for us to come and do an assessment of their hotel to see what environmental technologies and solutions they could implement to reduce their energy costs. Be more sustainable. And essentially to engage the local community so after that and having that all happened so quickly i was like no brainer as i got cancelled. I'm canceling the return flight. I'm sticking around. We're going to see how this plays out. So that's the first part of this journey. Oh wow well. Let's fast forward them to what you have until recently been doing in china you. You mentioned that you have now done some work with we work. But what i'm more interested in is your own company. So tell me about where that story ended up for you in china yeah. So cedar clergy became the first company in china to offer rooftop solar financing for commercial industrial buildings. So wait a minute. Rooftop financing. Explain what that means. Yeah so rooftop. Solar financing what that means is essentially a mechanism or a way to pay for solar panels on a rooftop of a building so usually a factory or an office building without having to put up any money upfront. So usually that's a power purchase agreement model which means essentially third party investor pays for all the solar panels on the roof and the owner of that building then basically gets a savings or discount on their electric from day one so that owner of the building doesn't pay anything they only get savings and the investor of that project gets to sell the electricity to the building. Yeah interesting so when you first doing this in china had already heard about this model elsewhere and they were open to it or was there a period of education total education on they had heard about like a leasing model where you kind of rent the solar panels but never this model where you don't have to pay anything up front and so did a lot of education and all of our early customers. Frankly were western companies so we actually had to go to hong kong and found a hong kong sash singapore fund that had experienced in other markets. Doing this from there. We took us about eighteen months to really figure out all the nuances with the state grid with with how to do the the special purpose vehicles which are the entities and all of the paperwork attached to it. But once we did it was kind of a big breakthrough for us and for the market and very quickly this whole space took off so we were like we're onto something in china and we have the right secret sauce and we have this Opportunity in the opportunity in the market. I first market so much urgency. That i think it became too much right where you end up starting to make sometimes poor decisions or somebody's putting too much pressure on yourself or other people because it's just like this fear of seeing everyone else who's been in that position and then not capitalizing on it not executing properly or just getting passed by the competition because originally we were first to market so it was actually pretty easy by twenty sixteen. There were already several players popping up big chinese companies as well as a few foreign players. So you have the big panel manufacturers. Who are actually selling their own product in a way and then you have these engineering companies that have tons of resources. The and for them you know they had just infinitely more human power and capital So then it really became our whole differentiator in that was trust credibility and quality than we obviously added services onto that right. We added like verification. We added onsite advisories. We go onto the site do that sesame and so we were we kind of a then built our own niche within the niche. So then there was. No one else is doing this. We call it advisory services for renewable energy because what everyone wanted was the holy grail of being the engine company who got the contract to build it or the financing company. Who put the money in. Because that's a good moneymaker too and so we ended up. You know serving both sides

"Hello tom hi how are you. I'm well all the better to see you. Yes you too. It's it's been such a long time. Well i think with all of these update i'm doing. It's been at least a year since we did the recording right. That's right Probably a little over half yes well. First of all so you are at the forefront of what was happening during the early days of coronavirus because you of course work in the new zealand consulate chatra. sir Yeah it was really weird. Crazy time. I was in new zealand on holiday for some holiday in january and i flew back in the day before chinese new year which i think was also roughly the same day. That ruhama sort of went into full lockdown positive. A day after it went into full lockdown and. Wow one a crazy yes. Yeah jerry rice. We had almost immediately an evacuation flights that we had to organize from consulate to get over new zealanders and wuhan out and we did it from here because obviously were a little bit closer to shanghai and we teamed up cousins the australians who cover wuhan in their jurisdiction of course things changed. And then things started to normalize in china pretty quickly right effort. Ironically for me for normalization actually made me more busy so yeah zealand concerts very small with matrix about that. In the past we got much smaller. We evacuated all non essential staff to went down to two new zealanders. And the post. I then My boss the consul-general batch to new zealand That was about late march and says for a very long period. It was just me alone in the post. But honestly i felt like shanghai well because you would have been just in that place by yourself handling everything. Yep was rolling around in a very large officer pretty much on my own even our local software coming in So we had maybe at tops. One other person in the office with me. People still went travelling into the city as much. And so i'd have these wonderful Cycles into were. And i'd pass no one that i remember once late april getting passed by four cars and being deeply offended by it. Yeah and here we are now. It's early twenty twenty one. And what is the situation like these days than especially personally so you have a fully staffed team now again to you so i have an almost fully staffed team. I saw have no consul-general suburbs of acting consul general. That will change. Hopefully very soon. And i'm thinking back to our episode and we had a discussion about confucianism and it was about how the chinese have kept the disciplined side of confucianism. And i'm wondering whether that was part of what explained how china was able to cope with this so well could be i. I honestly have a particularly good story to tell around. Some countries managed to really well of us. Didn't i mean it's not a story of a particular philosophy. I think it's a story of whether people believe government have trust in the government and whether they have trust in the scientific process that the government uses to inform decision. Making to be immensely rewarding right. Because there'd be times when you would scratch your head and say goodbye done today but this is not one of those times right. Yeah it was definitely a moment where you can go home from work. Most days and i'd be out actually look back in your very tangible things managed to achieve or if you haven't achieved at you're making progress in right direction as compared to most of my life where you look back and go did that long but if paper i wrote or those five messages i sent actually make any difference in the universe or am i just filling up the world of junk. Well this hasn't been junk. I really appreciate it tom. It's good to know that there are people like you who have been helping and you started up this conversation by saying how stressed you've been. I think people would be very grateful for the work that you've been doing well. Kobe has changed a lot of things. And one of them was the fact that the person you referred could no longer participate in the next season but found a good replacement. So i hope that they'll still be some kind of connection between you and the future series of mosaic of china. I was always really grateful that you participated in this project. And i hope that we can continue to stay in touch very much. I'll always be listening so at the very least it'll be that hopefully we can do more. Thanks so much. Tom thank you..

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.

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.

"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..

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.

"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.

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.

But like you can still feel the kind of transformative nature of them when you go up and then come down. Ostrich Pogosyan the violinist from Episode Four. 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.

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.

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.
