The Second Best China-Africa Podcast You Ever Heard!

The triumphant debut of the Cowries and Rice Podcast, the second best China-Africa podcast you ever heard!

What are the perceptions of China-Africa relations? What do Africans and Chinese, in particular, think of that relationship? We are glad you asked that! Listen to this episode of the Cowries and Rice podcast as the speakers commit all sorts of cardinal sins about social science research; generalizing based on anecdotes and incomplete data, and making claims that are not exactly reviewed by a scholarly body! Dangerous!

Join host Winslow Robertson with (three possibly permanent) co-hosts: Dr. Nkemjika Kalu who just earned her PhD in Political Science from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, where she studied Nigerian perceptions of engagement with Chinese immigrants; Elle Wang who is pursuing her PhD from George Mason University in Public Policy is studying African migrant communities in Guangzhou and Yiwu; and Andy Liu, a U.S.-based Chinese blogger on China as well as a communications professional in global development, and formerly a CCTV journalist. How do the Africans and Chinese peoples with whom they have interacted felt about the China-Africa relationship? How do our current perceptions of the China-Africa relationship compare with the experiences faced by Chinese migrants in Africa and vice versa? Listen to this week's episode to find out!
