Victor Shih and Ken WilcoxThe 21st Century China Program at the UC San Diego School of Global Policy and Strategy (GPS) launched China 21, a new podcast that puts top policymakers and academics on U.S.-China relations in front of a mic for real conversations, stripped of jargon. The new podcast tackles the most relevant trends in China’s economy, politics and society, as well as their implications for international affairs.

“Our center is home to a remarkable group of China faculty who are on the cutting edge of social-science methodology and analysis on China,” said Samuel Tsoi, assistant director of the 21st Century China Program who headed up the launch of China 21.

“Plus, experts from various fields partner with us as guest speakers, scholars and visitors. We want to make sure those voices are heard, not just on campus but for a wider audience and accessible at any time,” he said.

China 21 does just that, offering digestible clips that are mobile, on-demand and easily sharable. Episodes are available on the China 21 website, as well as SoundCloud, Stitcher, iTunes and Google Play.
