131 Covid-19, China and Silicon Valley with Kaiser Kuo

Something Ventured -- Silicon Valley Podcast

In the midst of the Covid crisis, how should Silicon Valley think about China?  Kaiser Kuo is founder and host of the Sinica podcast, and has been a longtime journalist and tech executive in China. Few people know more about the intricacies of China’s politics and their interaction with technology companies. In this episode we discuss China’s responsibility for Covid, and compare its response times to those of the US.  We discuss how the US should think about China going forward as a new world order emerges.  Also, as this crisis passes what can we do to make sure it doesn’t happen again? Finally, Kaiser discusses how we’ve flip flopped on how we view technology and other governments.  Is technology a tool of revolution? (Arab Spring) or of control (WeChat contact tracking apps).

Escape From Plan A

We're honored to have Kaiser Kuo (Sinica podcast, Supchina, Chinese Metal pioneer) join Jess and Teen to talk about the extent to which the media's portrayal of China is a relevant political issue affecting the lives of Asian Americans. Kaiser has a deep background in Chinese politics, especially with the way Western media covers it. With many seeking to place blame for the covid-19 pandemic, this could not be a more urgent issue.
