This is certainly an informative podcast on the whole Huawei situation. Amidst trade talks with China that are either breaking down or not depending on whose perspective you get on it, one cannot help wonder if people are trying to create an enemy out of China just as they have been so fond of doing towards Russia for some time now.

This was interesting but the speaker repeatedly mistakes corroboration with causation. For example, he skates over patent filings in relation to emancipation, as thought the only issue at work is black politics.

Sorry but sometimes when guests whose native language isn’t English & esp if they speak painfully slow with that heavy accent one just loses the interest...

Hi, just a thought regarding the milk farming industry. I think there is another significant reason why the demands for cow milk is decreasing is these videos what under covered reporters released to the world where it clearly seen how they cows are treated, so disgusting, inhuman, cruel!!! After seeing these videos people think about why the hell should I support this industry by buying there products??? The older generation like these senators stand next to this industry but this is not the future! Young generation prefers to drink alternative milks and even if the government saves this industry that is just temporary.

the economist was once a place of solid objective news. It has now become agenda driven PC propaganda. So sad to be dropping this once great publication.

The economist's podcasts never work on my Android. If I try downloading them - get "Download failed" error. Playing directly does not work either.

The host needs to speak slowly. She's great in fluency but extremely fast. I have had to replay the audio several times to understand what was stated. especially when these were facts
