Feb 27, 2020 Season 3 Episode 3
Loud Murmurs 小声喧哗

2020 has been a rough year for us -- with the Coronavirus spreading from central China to all across the globe, we realized how small we are as humans in the face of a global health epidemic, yet also how grand humanity can be in the time of disasters. As we grow weary of shedding tears, we try to make sense of it all, discussing with peers and looking at this from all angles. Everything will be different from this moment on. We will not forget what has happened as we take it upon ourselves to be the witnesses of history, to take this all in, to record it, to critically discuss it. 

In this episode, we revisit the show Chernobyl and discuss how the seemingly well-oiled machine of the Chinese bureaucracy that we know so well managed everything that has been happening since December, how extreme situations led to even more extreme results. 

As always, thank you for your continued support -- it means the world to us, especially during times of turmoil. Stay strong, stay healthy, be well.
