Miles Yu and Wilson Shirley discuss one of the most consequential periods of General Secretary Xi Jinping's tenure as the head of the Chinese Communist Party. From the Twentieth Party Congress to popular protests over repression and Zero-COVID, to Xi's reentry into global forums like the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and his upcoming trip to Saudi Arabia, there is a lot going on in China. In the first episode of China Insider, Miles explains the history behind the headlines and what to make of the last few weeks in China.

On multiple fronts—from ideology to the economy, to the military, to technology—the Chinese Communist Party presents the United States and its allies and partners with their most serious threat since the Cold War—maybe since World War II. What does the emerging consensus about the China challenge get right, and what is it missing? And what will it take to compete to win?

China Insider is a weekly podcast project from Hudson Institute's China Center, hosted by Miles Yu and Wilson Shirley who provide weekly news that mainstream American outlets often miss, as well as in-depth commentary and analysis on the China challenge and the free world’s future.
