About Jordan Schneider

I'm Jordan, the host of the ChinaTalk podcast and newsletter. The ChinaTalk newsletter features weekly translations and analysis of Chinese-language sources on tech, us-china and domestic political economy. The podcast is a weekly show with hourlong conversations.

Some of the podcast's greatest hits include my show with New Yorker correspondent Peter Hessler who compared his years living in China and Egypt, Weijian Shan who lived through the Cultural Revolution only to show up in SF in 1980 and get a PhD under Janet Yellen, and Jake Sullivan on US-China relations. One to lighten the mood would be my interview with an American who tried and failed to bring Mr. Softee to China.

Some of the newsletter's best articles include a reflection on the documentary American Factory, Chinese views on decoupling, a deep dive into Chinese AI chips, a reflection on Wuhan doctor Li Wenliang.

The two projects take around 20hrs/week and given the niche audience, advertisers are very hard to come by. Your support will help me pay for an editor and support contributors who make up the next generation of China analysts. 

Thank you so much for your support!
