    Bonny Lin is a CCP Asset
    Way to go, platforming her. Granted, she’s everywhere mouthing Xi’s talking points to the West. I would have expected FA to be more discerning.

    Excellent, it is unfortunate very few people have respect when someone admits an error. It is my foundation of living that the more someone knows the more they know how little they actually know. I believe it is called the Dunning Kruger effect. Of course I am also guilty at times!

    Typical CFR
    Like all that CFR does they see their purpose as promoting the elite’s leftist agenda and everything else takes a back seat to promoting that agenda.

    Unequaled expertise
    This is the gold standard for quality of interviews about foreign affairs; no podcast has such access to the array of experts that come on this show
  • Imediatecare
    My only issue with this podcast is that I discovered it too early and I’m already finished with the backlog; have been flying through the episodes and have enjoyed every one. Great interviewing, engaging and knowledgeable guests.

    Great New Podcast
    I look forward to now hearing Foreign Affairs great strategic and analytical content in this new podcast format. As a suggestion for a future episode, I would be interested in hearing if my former professor from GW, David Shambaugh, still believes his 2015 prediction that the CCP is on the decline and headed to collapse.

    Wonderfully surprised.
    Fascinating guest, unobtrusive interviewer. Thoroughly informative episode. I’m edge-of-seat, awaiting next offering. Sincere thank you to all concerned.
