Episode details

We have been hearing ridiculous rumors, self-serving lies and neocon propaganda about Xinjiang, China. Unfortunately, much of this propaganda bled into the initial coverage of the covid-19 situation, which prevented many western governments from taking it seriously and enacting the measures necessary to contain the virus.

Today, we have Carl Zha to walk us through detailed history about Xinjiang, the Uighers, and their relationship to China.
