Hosted by Juliana Batista, Ta for Ta is a new biweekly podcast which captures the narratives of women from Greater China at the top of their professional game. "Ta for Ta" is a play on the Chinese spoken language that demonstrates equality between the sexes. Tā 他 is the word for "he"; tā 她 is also the word for "she."
