Radio Interview With Bruce in Beijing

Not to long ago we did a series of interviews with a local English language radio show on AM774. It’s broken into short 5 minute sections. The first half of the interview was while I was back home in the US over Christmas/New Year, so Amy held down the fort as she discussed our trip up to Kashgar with “Bruce in Beijing”.

Below you can listen to the first half of the interview that Amy did with Bruce. Later we’ll be sharing the second half when I join the conversation.
