This week Kaiser and Jeremy are joined by David Moser and Orville Schell. While long-time listeners will of course know of David Moser as one of our favorite resident sinologists, if you haven't also heard of Orville Schell we think you should have. Currently director of the Center on US-China Relations at the Asia Society, and previously an academic sinologist with an outstanding list of publications on Chinese politics and society, Orville has most recently authored Wealth and Power: China's Long March to the Twenty-first Century.

Up for discussion: recent developments at ChinaFile (what the site has been doing and where we expect it to go), the state of modern academic and intellectual discourse in China as part of a broader look at Orville's new book, and finally a closer look at the terror attacks in Kunming last week which have seized the global presses.

It looks like the whole thing is uploaded. I've added the standalone mp3 link so you can download the whole show that was if needed. Should have had it up yesterday.

Cheers Sinica. I know you value (judicious and sometimes otherwise) dissent as much as I do ;) Very much looking forward to your latest discussion with TGA.
