So many "China podcasts" are just that – about Chinese history, politics or other, similarly wonky subjects.

The Kung Fu Komedy podcast is back! They've released brand new episodes and are mixing things up to discuss the latest stories from around China. In episode 124, Andy Curtain discusses the ongoing trade war, the evolution of Taiwan's standup scene and more. 

Here's a quick episode synopsis from KFK:

Big shots are being fired in the trade war, the authorities are shaving foreigners and big progress in Taiwan’s standup scene.

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.
