Part 1: Beyond The Balloon: Inside the Chinese-US Conflict with Josh Rogin - Mo News Conversation

Part 1: Beyond The Balloon: Inside the Chinese-US Conflict with Josh Rogin - Mo News Conversation

As we assess the fallout from the Chinese Spy Balloon drama, the Mo News podcast takes a step back and looks into the state of US-China relations with Washington Post Columnist Josh Rogin. 

In part one of Jill and Mosh’s conversation with Rogin, we talk about what China’s strategy was regarding the balloon and how it reflects the increasing tension between the two nations over the last few decades. We also talk about the ongoing conversation about Tik Tok and whether that presents a national security threat to Americans. 

Rogin has covered China issues for several decades, including breaking news on the Wuhan Lab in 2020, and has a new book out on the topic called “Chaos Under Heaven.” You can catch him on Twitter @joshrogin on all things foreign policy. Separately, he also has an Instagram account @watchtheramen devoted to his love of ramen and watches.
