So many "China podcasts" are just that – about Chinese history, politics or other, similarly wonky subjects. Not that there's anything wrong with that (we love us some history) but, sometimes, we yearn for the lighter side of China – and now, Kung Fu Komedy has delivered. To see their previous podcasts, click here.
This week, the Kung Fu Komedy krew chat with Christopher Makos, photographer and Andy Warhol collaborator.
Christopher Makos was once described by Andy Warhol as “the most modern photographer in America” and is the man who introduced Warhol to his first camera. Makos has a knack for taking photos of cultural icons when they’re at their peak, Warhol, Lennon, the Rolling Stones, Bill Murray, the list goes on an on. He came to Beijing with Warhol in 1982 and he told us all about the gallery/restaurant he’s preparing to open in Shanghai. The guy’s a legend.
Every week, Andy Curtain tracks down the most interesting person he can find and asks them what they're doing in China. To subscribe, add the Stuck in the Middle podcast on iTunes, or copy this link to use in your favorite podcatcher app.
