  1. Great podcast as usual. You just need to record more often. What’s the intro/outro tune?

    • Charlie

      Thanks for the feedback Will. You are right, there are two new episodes which have been recorded, one will be published within the next 48 hours, on the subject of co-working spaces and starting a business in Chengdu as a foreigner.

  2. Great to hear. For a while, I thought I was moving to Chengdu, so I listened to all of your podcasts to get a feel for what to expect. Since then, I took a job in Shanghai but I still find your pod a great resource on the expat experience in China. It is amazing to me that their are so few podcasts that cover this topic regularly. I’m also curious about the the intro song. What’s the artist and title?

  3. Word. Yeah, I’m kicking around the idea of starting one in the next year or so from Shanghai. Thanks for the song.
