Important Chinese Things with Jenny Zhu is a free podcast from ChinesePod that helps you understand what's going on in China now and learn practical Chinese words and phrases to talk about those things.
People who love the written word read to me (Steve Wasserman) - with tea, biscuits, and vitalizing convo. Also via Skype. Channeling Deborah Treisman's The New Yorker Fiction and Curtis Fox's Poetry Foundation, podcasts but equally the Reader Organisation's "reading revolution": a deeply personal and person-centred way of engaging with literary texts. If you like what you hear, please get in touch and read me something YOU love (stevewasserman AT gmail.com).
