As part of our ongoing efforts to secure the hottest scoops for you, our Sinica team originally planned to storm Hu Jintao's flight to Washington and record a live podcast with everyone's favorite Chairman during his flight across the Pacific. Sadly, this idea did not meet equal enthusiasm after a good night's sleep, leaving us to report on the ongoing US-China summit from our regular studios in downtown Beijing.
Joining Kaiser Kuo to analyze the Washington summit is Sinica regular Jeremy Goldkorn
of Danwei fame, who brings his candid impressions of what both President Obama and Chairman Hu are hoping to achieve at the summit. Also in our studio is Gady Epstein, Beijing Bureau Chief for Forbes magazine and recently-outed China apologist and pro-slaver
. Conspicuously absent is Bill Bishop and his chocolate cupcakes, both of which we will lure back with promises of further animal deportations if necessary. And capping off Sinica we have our regular financial news roundup courtesy of Caixin
We had a great time in the studio recording this and hope you like it. As always, if you want to save yourself the hassle of having to remember to come here and listen each Friday, just sign-up for an account on Popup Chinese and follow the instructions to add Sinica to your list of shows. Once you've setup your personal RSS feed, new episodes will download automatically as soon as they become available. iTunes holdouts can also continue to download the show as a standalone mp3 file
