The big bet – ties between the US and China from Nixon to now

Veteran journalists Jane Perlez and Scott Tong spoke about their new radio series and their own experiences with reporting from China for New York Times and Marketplace Radio. The series is broadcast by NPR and WBUR and will be available for download.

About the series

With money, power and political stance at stake, the United States’ relationship with China is flimsy. But it was not always so. The big bet is a five-part series that tells the story of the extraordinary meeting that brought these two countries together, the secret collaborations that were born from that meeting – and the reverberations we still feel today.

Video is also available on our YouTube channel.
