Did Beijing Just Make Xi Jinping China’s Ruler For Life?, Food Mondays: The Hospitality Of Pyeongchang, World History Moment: Invention Of RADAR, And Chicago Novelist On Islamophobia And Teen Literature
On today’s show:
China’s Communist Party announced on Sunday it would do away with term limits for the presidency, and we discuss what the decision could mean for President Xi Jinping with Wen Huang — a Chicago-based writer, journalist, and human rights advocate.
We talk about how Olympic athletes were treated to some of the Gangwon province’s unique food and other uniquely Korean hospitality customs in Pyeongchang with Soo Kang, who teaches hospitality management at Colorado State University.
Historian John Schmidt shares how the same radio waves we use to listen to WBEZ also helped defeat the Nazis in today’s World History Moment.
