The spring series concludes — or does it? — with special guest Yun Jiang, the Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) Inaugural China Matters Fellow. Guess what we’re talking about! (It’s not all about lobsters.)

We talk about Anthony Albanese’s recent visit to China, the first since by an Australian prime minister since 2016. We also cover ASIO versus the spies, media beat-ups, trade, Australia’s “fear of abandonment” and China’s “deeply entrenched sense of victimhood”, climate change, China’s app-based internet, why Australia needs a China equivalent to the United States Study Centre, and why you shouldn’t read Global Times. And lobsters. So many lobsters.
