Podcast Pioneers — Antiwave 反波

This episode of Danwei TV's Hard Hat Show is an interview with Flypig and Ping Ke, the two Chinese bloggers who make the excellent Antiwave podcast.

We talk about Antiwave's birth and history and touch on several subjects, including media in China and how much things have changed the days, back in the 1980s, when Ping Ke's heart was set aflutter just by seeing a copy of Time magazine. Ping Ke also explains about his attitude to Japan, and his reaction to online comments to his podcast calling for a rational attitude towards China's historical enemy.

You can watch the episode below (on the Tudou server in China) and also in Youtube version on Danwei.tv, where there are also links to other ways to watch (Tudou is slow when viewed from U.S. and Europe, while Youtube is not working properly in China).

If you understand Chinese and would like to hear the whole, unedited interview, click here (全采访纪录音频) to hear it on Tudou. You have to click the play button on a video player, but there's no video, only audio.

two shy guys talking about their funny stuff, cool.

"As long as it's legal, we can say whatever we want!"

What is the definition of legal?


Hats off to Antiwave and to Danwei for broadcasting this important and timely material! Antiwave is clearly doing groundbreaking and extremely important work for a Chinese audience, and thanks to Danwei for bringing this work into focus for an English-speaking audience.

After watching Danwei's video, I checked out Antiwave and I am listening to it now. It is pretty interesting! Reminds me of the ABC in Australia.

Classic Danwei posts
+ Korean history doesn't fly on Chinese TV screens (2007.09): SARFT puts the kibbosh on Korean historical dramas.
+ Religion and government in an uneasy mix (2008.03): Phoenix Weekly (凤凰周刊) article from October, 2007, on government influence on religious practice in Tibet.
+ David Moser on Mao impersonators (2004.10): I first became aware of this phenomenon in 1992 when I turned on a Beijing TV variety show and was jolted by the sight of "Mao Zedong" and "Zhou Enlai" playing a game of ping pong. They both gave short, rousing speeches, and then were reverently interviewed by the emcee, who thanked them profusely for taking time off from their governmental duties to appear on the show.
