Miles Yu and Wilson Shirley discuss the China-brokered deal between Saudi Arabia and Iran and what it means for the future of great-power competition in the Middle East and elsewhere. They continue with the latest on two ongoing stories, first about China's declining popularity in much of the world, and second about how Congress and the World Health Organization are advancing their investigations into the origins of COVID-19.

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.
