In the first of what will likely be many podcasts discussing some of the latest China-related revelations contained in the recent Wikileaks data-dump, our discussion today turns towards North Korea, and Chinese diplomatic overtures suggesting that the country's long-standing ally may be prepared to desert it, accepting a unified Korean peninsula under the control of an American-dominated South Korea.
Sorting through the issues with Kaiser this week are special guests Jeremy Goldkorn
of Danwei fame, along with Gady Epstein
, Beijing bureau chief for Forbes magazine. Also joining us for the first time is Mary Kay Magistad
, long-time Northeast Asia correspondent for Public Radio International, and occasional journalist for National Public Radio, The Washington Post and the Christian Science Monitor.
