CHINA UNSCRIPTED

148 China’s Zero Covid Fail

China has been telling the world that its brutal lockdowns in service of reaching zero covid cases have largely been effective.

In this Just Us episode, we also discuss Elon Musk's relationship with China, a new Xinhua propaganda spoof making fun of the US and UK, Wall Street waking up to China investment risks, Chinese backing of the movie "Dune" and other topics.
