Understanding Asia

Episodic Information

Understanding Asia is a seven-part series that delves deep into China, India, Malaysia,Indonesia, Thailand, Japan and Hong Kong. Each episode uses an allusive approach that begins with a hypothesis about the subject. We talk to different social scientists and experts around the world to test our hypothesis and in the process, whether by confirmation or refutation, we deep-dive into the psyche and DNA of each subject matter. In so doing, we hope to understand the current affairs and issues of each country and territory more intuitively.
