In Search of Monsters — Unofficial China

How do people in the United States and China see each other culturally? Does it deviate significantly from the more belligerent rhetoric increasingly employed by each of the countries’ political regimes?

On this episode of In Search of Monsters, host Chris Lydon dives into the unofficial cultural dimension intertwining the two superpowers with Kaiser Kuo, former member of the Chinese metal rock bank Tang Dynasty and now freelance writer based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Yale historian Jing Tsu, who discusses the development of modern Chinese writing.

Amidst the increased competition between the two countries, the episode offers a refreshing and illuminating look at Chinese culture and its linkages with the United States.
