Google China and the pullout


Play episode:

The Sinica Podcast’s very first episode was, perhaps fittingly, recorded on April 1, in 2010 at the makeshift studios of Popup Chinese.

In the inaugural episode, Kaiser and Jeremy sat down with Bill Bishop of the Sinocism newsletter to discuss Google’s withdrawal of its search engine services and much of its business from China in early 2010.

This podcast episode was republished on SupChina at a fitting time: December 13, 2017, when news broke of Google’s re-engagement with China via an artificial intelligence research center in Beijing.
