Shocked by the lowness

by kerlji on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

It’s really disturbing to hear some venture capitalists publicly champion an inhuman working schedule(996) that is on par with slavery unashamedly.Plz stop this show, which is basically saying, joining us in China, the world wildest playground for capitalists, where there’s a bountiful feast of slavers to exploit. Sick.

Amazing podcast for cross-border entrepreneurs

by Suijeneris on
Rating: ★★★★★

Really love and enjoy this podcast for business people and especially for aspiring entrepreneurs with ambitions to build global companies. I think cross-border entrepreneurs have unique advantages and this podcast really showcases that—the perspective, connections, and experiences abroad gives insights that help improve your idea, product, and/or business. Many founders took inspiration from US to China to create billion dollar companies—the “sea turtles”. I think this is also happening in the reverse more often and we’ll see this over the next decade where entrepreneurs who live, work in, or travel often to Asia can take inspiration there and bring it to the West. The community is fantastic as well, I’ve connected with some people via the WeChat group and also got to meet Zara (she’s great and amazingly sharp and smart).

Great concept, but could use a little polishing

I have really appreciated the content in this podcast but I can’t help but get distracted by Mr. Tung’s interview style. Please, please stop saying “yep”, “right”, “uhuh” after every point and interrupting the speaker by trying to say what you think the speaker is going to say. Just relax and let the speakers speak. We already know you’re smart, Hans, no need to keep jumping in. :) I say this with the best of intentions because I do love the podcast. Just maybe treat it more like a professional show and less like a casual networking conversation. Then it will be PERFECT. Again, thank you for a great show, that’s why I’m giving 5 stars.

Timely and valuable

This podcast got me into podcasts! This is such a great way to learn more about China technology and can’t wait to hear Hans and Zara converse with more Chinese tech changemakers.

The Bingobox episode is below par

by Emma Cai NYC on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I appreciate the Bingobox founder’s passion or even if it is a great investment of GGV, however, the founder is just not a good speaker (at least not good English speaker). It is very hard to follow him and not even sure if he prepared for the interview. I was extremely looking forward to hearing the story of the new internet, however, I am sad to say this is not the best story.I hope the 996 podcast caught this type of issue in advance going forward.

Hans does not know when to stop talking

Please stop interrupting the guests who are on the show

Feedback for the host

by tech pm on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Great initiative and content! I have to say that it’s almost rude for the host to constantly interrupt guest speakers before they were able to finish their thoughts. If you invite people to talk, then let them talk! It’s ok to set up the question and follow up with your own takeaway, but please let them finish! It’s getting very annoying for listeners.

Much needed cross-cultural tech discussion

by Danwuwu on
Rating: ★★★★★

Very insightful discussion that brings a nuanced cross-cultural interpretation of technology trends in china that goes beyond standard frames. A great way to understand and learn about a huge and (possibly future leading) player in our global economy.
