This episode of Danwei TV's Hard Hat Show is an interview with blogger and San Lian Life Week journalist Wang Xiaofeng
Wang is not afraid to poke fun at sacred cows or to curse China's excitable young Internet users. His acerbic style and sense of humor have made him your correspondent's favorite Chinese blogger. In person, he does not disappoint.
We discussed Beijing culture — or the lack of of it — swearing, idiots on the Internet, Northeastern Chinese jokes about sex, blogging, and the meretricious behavior of Sina.com. This ten minute program was cut from 40 minutes of tape. If you understand Chinese, you can listen to the whole interview as an audio podcast on this post.
