Ep. 65 - Stuck In the Middle With Meng Wanzhou


China and the US are facing off in what’s being dubbed a new Cold War. And Canada’s stuck in a tight spot.

To dig into what’s at stake, we’re joined by Philip Calvert, a former diplomat in China and Senior Fellow with the China Institute of the University of Alberta.
