Hosts Miles Yu and Wilson Shirley discuss the tradeoffs in the United States’ support for Ukraine given the urgency of deterring war in the Indo-Pacific, recent statements from South Korea’s president about the global importance of defending Taiwan, and two recent arrests related to the Chinese Communist Party’s once-secret overseas police stations in New York.

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.
