Episode 2: Tian Wei


Our episode features Tian Wei, anchor of World Insight with Tian Wei. World Insight is CCTV’s prime talk show and a platform for debate on world news. We will talk about how Tian Wei earned the nickname ‘lady in the back’ and how her grandmother’s cooking brought their community together. We will also discuss the role of political dialogue in the U.S. and China and her involvement with a development project on a matrilineal community in Yunnan, Western China. We were so impressed with her candid demeanor and relentless spirit, and hope you are too! Don’t forget to subscribe to our channel and chat with us at ta.for.ta.china@gmail.com.
