Greetings and welcome to another rarity on the web: A Radio show about China!  Every week we scour the web, far and wide, to find great little tidbits about China being talked about in articles or on videos or in audio.  We then neatly package it into a simple, quick and easy to listen to radio show and podcast for everyone on the web.  You can participate if you want to!  You can e-mail us your comments or topics that you wish us to cover.  We strive to be somewhat a-political because we don’t want to be blocked in China.  You can reach us at Radio at Mandmx.com or via twitter here. If you have a comment you can use twitter “@MandMx”  and then your comment and we’ll get it!  We might even feature your tweet on the air!

You can subscribe to MandMx Radio via iTunes here.  Comments there are greatly appreciated!

Anyone interested in advertising or getting their product out to the people who listen please contact us at radio at mandmx.com.
