All Google all the time

The Google pullout

Sinica is a new podcast series put together by Kaiser Kuo and hosted by PopUp Chinese, a Chinese language learning website and podcast series.

The first episode features yours truly, together with Kuo and Bill Bishop, known to China Twitter people as niubi and also for the blogs Digicha and Sinocism.

We talk about Google and China, covering the issues in more depth than the soundbites granted to it in most media reports.

You can download the podcast from iTunes, or listen to it on
