“Brilliant! Even though I was born in Hongkong, I’m intrigued by some of the cultural differences that I rarely pay attention to. Great job, Yingying and Brendan. You captured it all.” - Professor Henry Wong, Silicon Valley (Managing Director in Garage Capital Fund #3; Founder, Diamond TechVentures)

"'How China Works' is an invaluable resource for anyone doing business in China. Boost your cultural IQ and learn what's really going on below the surface.” - Steve Hoffman (Chairman, Founders Space)

“'How China Works' is essential listening for the China-bound or the China-curious, covering a comprehensive range of personal and professional topics with good humor and good advice. Yingying and Brendan are an engaging info-comic podcast duo, representing the Western-savvy Chinese insider and the China-initiated foreign outsider with wit and wisdom. As someone who has been living & working in China for ten years, I’m not only enjoying 'How China Works', but am still learning from it.” - Kevin Geiger (transmedia creator / producer)

###

"An excellent and enjoyable multicultural approach to helping you understand China and the Chinese culture. Easy listening, articulate, brings a smile to your face when you hear their observations, I would recommend their podcast!" - Manoj Chawla (Managing Director at EasyPeasy Limited, Dublin, Ireland)

###

"'How China Works' has been exciting, high energy and super useful. As an executive who does business in China, I was able to get some useful tips of how to more effectively communicate when in China.” - Aditya Mohan (Founder, Skive it, Inc.)

###

“A high-achieving multicultural bridge for Westerners into China! Highly recommend this podcast for people who want to be successful in negotiations with China or Asia in general. The reality is that the way we do things in America is different in the East, and it is key to understand the signals that our partners in China show while doing a business with them and extremely important to know how to be clear and effectively to communicate what we want, at the same time that we understand that it is beneficial for them in every deal or in the long term. I believe that by viewing into this window that Yingying and Brendan have opened for us, we can learn a lot about How China Works and how we can be a part of it.” - Juan Carlos Perezbucio

###

“I love the format. It is entertaining and feels real since the hosts translate personal experiences. Great job! Can’t wait to hear the next podcasts.” - Micha Benoliel (Co-Founder at Nodle, connectivity solution for the IoT. Founded Open Garden, creator of the FireChat app)

###

“The ‘How China Works’ podcast is perfect for newcomers to China who want to gain a broad foundation of knowledge, or for others who simply want to understand Chinese culture better from afar. At the same time, it can even be useful for people like me, who have lived and worked in China before, to gain deeper insight into the importance of these traditions and practices. Needless to say, given the immense potential for collaboration across these two economies, this is the perfect time for a show that shares this kind of understanding.” - Matt Johnson (Associate Dean, Hult International Business School)

###

"More than 40 fun episodes planned covering all aspects of getting to know 'How China Works' by the dynamic duo Yingying Li & Brendan Davis! Presented in an easy going style, peppered with real life anecdotes, Yingying & Brendan usher us into a mystical realm of Chinese culture with interesting insights from ancient history to modern times. It’s an entertaining survival guide for first time visitors to China, for business or pleasure.” - Bosco Albuquerque (Head of Big Data Engineering and Architecture at Collective[i])

###

“Even as an overseas Chinese, keeping up with all the societal norms and cultural nuances in China can be daunting. 'How China Works' is an indispensable tool for anyone who wants to thrive in this land of boundless opportunity. Whether you’re visiting China for the first time, or you’ve already lived in China for several years, you’re bound to uncover new surprises!” - Lucas Lin (Associate at JPMorgan Chase & Co.)

###

"‘How China Works’ is a recommended podcast for anybody interested in cultural differences between China and 'the West'. Bite-sized shows around 10 minutes and lots of interesting topics. Well done Brendan and Yingying!” - Ed Sander (Author of ChinaTalk, Netherlands)

###

"My good friend Yingying Li has a great new podcast. If you want to understand China better and accelerate communications with the USA, listen to her stuff!" - David Bradford (CEO, FluentWorlds)

###

“Great talkshow! Love it when I can pick up some tips helpful by listening to your program! Especially like to learn more about cross-cultures, because it plays a great part in my international marriage life. Thank you!” - Merrie Dong 

###

"I listened to one of your episodes on "Yes, No, Please & Thank You". It is very interesting to me that, as a Chinese person, I find your conclusion especially accurate and refreshing. I never realized my behavior, which is just like how you described in the episode until I listen to your conversation. At the same time, I also realized the change of behavior of expressing more of my emotions towards my loved one after almost 10 years living in the US. I learned to say more "thank you" to my mom for the little things because I want her to know that I love her dearly and I appreciate everything that she did for me. This episode makes me reflect on my verbal expression as a Chinese who lives in the US for a long time. I'd highly recommend your show to my other friends." - Zee Peng (Global Business Development Lead, OnePiece Work)

“‘How China Works’ is a fun and fast-paced podcast. I am interested in learning more about China and will continue to listen to Brendan and Yingying. They have done their research and provide lots of factoids and historical context.” - Steve Turner
