As 2022 draws to a close, so must this season of the NüVoices podcast. But fear not! Before we sign off for a winter hiatus, we wanted to bring together our team to reflect on the past year.
Joanna Chiu, Rui Zhong, Solarina Ho, Megan Cattel, and Saga Ringmar come together to discuss our podcast’s highlights, our favorite episodes, and what we hope to achieve next year. We also delve into the anti-COVID lockdown protests that swept China late last month in response to the apartment fire in Urumqi that claimed the lives of ten people. (Note: We recorded this discussion the last week of November, and we did NOT predict the recent, abrupt end of Zero COVID, that’s for sure.)
Lastly, co-host Sophia Yan gives a recap of 2022’s major events: from the Beijing Olympics, China’s aggression toward Taiwan, and the National Party Congress which solidified Xi Jinping’s third term. Sophia also gives a glimpse into her latest project, How to Become a Dictator, a podcast series for The Telegraph. Please do check it out wherever you get your podcasts!
We also want to give a shout out to podcast co-host, Cindy Gao. Cindy has been at the forefront scheduling, coordinating crossposts, and managing our podcast operations behind the scenes this year. When they say, “it takes a village,” this truly applies to podcasting as well.
