With dire economic warnings coming in from experts on both sides of the Atlantic, a coronavirus vaccine is being held up as a medical and economic holy grail. 108 potential COVID-19 vaccines are in the works - but what are the chances of one being successful? Christiane Amanpour speaks to Dr. Richard Hatchett, CEO of Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations and former adviser on pandemics to presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. New Yorker writer Evan Osnos tells Michel Martin how he thinks the battered US economy could impact President Trump's re-election prospects. And Christiane talks to British folk singer Laura Marling about the early release of her new album 'Song for Our Daughter'.

Amanpour: Ali Shabani, Danylo Lubkivsky, Evan Osnos and Chris Hughes

After Iran admitted accidentally shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane, the regime finds itself under pressure from its own people and over the weekend, President Trump tweeted his support for the growing protests. To break this all down, Mohammad Ali Shabani, an Iran research at SOAS University of London, joins Christiane Amanpour in London. The doomed Flight 752 outbound from Iran was heading towards Kiev and eleven Ukrainian nationals lost their lives on board after it was shot down. Danylo Lubvisky was the Ukrainian Deputy Foreign Minister at the time of the MH17 disaster and he speaks from his experience of the fallout this will cause. This week, Beijing's top trade negotiator has touched down in DC with one aim; to bring an end to a bitter economic war between the two superpowers. Evan Osnos has written extensively on this subject for The New Yorker and he gives his analysis of the relations between the U.S. and China. Our Hari Sreenivasan sits down with Chris Hughes, co-founder of Facebook, to talk about his concerns that the tech giant is too powerful and may be a potential risk to liberal democracy. He is now leading the battle against corporate monopolies, a fight that could bring to face-to-face with the company he helped build.

Evan Osnos on the North Korea crisis, Trump’s mental health, and China's rise

The Ezra Klein Show
Episode artwork

Evan Osnos is the author of the National Book Award-winning The Age of Ambition: Chasing Fortune, Truth, and Faith in the New China, as well as a staff writer at the New Yorker. And he’s recently back from a trip to North Korea, where he learned how Trump’s threats are playing in one of the strangest and most sealed-off regimes on earth. “To go between Washington and Pyongyang at this nuclear moment is to be struck, most of all, by how little the two understand each other,” he wrote. “In eighteen years of reporting, I’ve never felt as much uncertainty at the end of a project, a feeling that nobody—not the diplomats, the strategists, or the scholars who have devoted their lives to the subject—is able to describe with confidence how the other side thinks.” In this discussion, Osnos and I talk about that trip: about what North Korea is like, what they think about us, and what war with them would actually mean. We also talk about China — they literally can’t believe their luck with Donald Trump, he says — and whether the widespread rumors that Trump is facing some kind of mental deterioration are true. Osnos, who dove deep into the subject for a New Yorker article on the 25th Amendment, fears they are. And that’s not all: We dig into the pressures for war in Washington, the tendency toward survivalism in Silicon Valley, and why Osnos finds his best article subjects by looking at some of the worst things that could possibly happen to the human race. I enjoyed this conversation immensely. I think you will, too. Books Citizen-Protectors by Jennifer Carlson The Vegetarian by Han Kang The China Fantasy by James Mann

North Korea behind the scenes, with Evan Osnos

Sinica Podcast
Episode artwork

North Korea is a mystery to nearly everyone — even those who have dedicated their lives to studying the country — including Korean experts based in Seoul, national security experts in Washington or Beijing, and a variety of foreigners who have spent extended periods studying in or reporting from the North. There is great uncertainty about what the country’s leaders really think of China, how self-sufficient the North’s economy actually is, and even the background of the “respected” leader, Kim Jong-un, beyond a few seemingly random details (he studied in Switzerland and likes basketball and Whitney Houston, for example). Evan Osnos — former Beijing correspondent for the New Yorker and now the magazine’s correspondent in the currently far more unpredictable capital of the U.S. — recently travelled to the Hermit Kingdom and reported an extensive cover piece for that magazine: “The risk of nuclear war with North Korea.” What are the prospects for war and peace in northeast Asia? Evan talked with Jeremy and Kaiser about his conversations with North Korean, Chinese, and U.S. government officials and people involved in the complicated regional powerplay. Recommendations: Jeremy: Jeeves & Wooster, a comedy TV series adapted from the P.G. Wodehouse books about a gormless English aristocrat and his very bright butler, played by Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, respectively. It’s “really a wonderful escapist pleasure [for] when you don’t feel like thinking about Donald Trump and North Korea,” Jeremy adds. Evan: The Great Leader and the Fighter Pilot, a book by Blaine Harden that explains how North Koreans think about the Korean war — an essential piece of the current conundrum we all face. Kaiser: China in Disintegration, by James Sheridan, a narrative history of the Republican Era (1912-1949) in China. Events during the period such as the Republican Revolution and the May Fourth Movement are key to understanding modern China.
