Big Fish in the Middle Kingdom

Jul 21, 2017

This week’s episode features Los Angeles-based TV producer and red carpet host Coca Xie, which flips my show’s usual format on it’s head. I usually feature foreigners who have come to China to do something interesting, but now that we are a few months into the podcast I wanted to begin getting another kind of voice into the mix, namely: Chinese people who have taken their insights into things here and gone to another country in order to build a bridge to China from the other side of the sea. Every 10 episodes or so I will add one of these into the mix, and I can’t think of a better person to start with than Coca.
I have known Coca for just a few years, but in that short amount of time she has accomplished a great deal. She’s established herself in both New York and L.A. as a bilingual reporter and host for Chinese and China-centric entertainment shows and events, but as a producer, she’s building a platform that is the first of it’s kind and is uniquely positioned to connect the US and Chinese entertainment worlds like never before. She’s a genuinely nice person on top of being very smart about her industry, and there are lots of funny stories as well as sharp insights in this episode, so I hope you enjoy it.
