Loud Murmurs 小声喧哗

In this episode, Loud Murmur’s three hosts, Izzy, @CaptainIna0328 (Ina), and @Diaodiaoyang (Diaodiao) discussed the critically acclaimed film that technically does not exist in China -- "One Child Nation" by Nanfu Wang and Jialing Zhang. We got very personal in this episode. Join us for an intimate, informative, and in-depth discussion on:

  • Our experience growing up as an only child -- more specifically, daughters, and our complex and evolving perception of the policy.
  • The under-covered, underestimated impact of the One Child policy on an entire generation of Chinese women -- including our own mothers.
  • The groundbreaking investigative journalism piece 邵氏弃儿 (“The Orphan of Shao”), and how the absence of independent investigative journalism transformed the mandarin public discourse in mainland China.
