Misha and John return after an extended sabbatical. They discuss the burning issue in Asia — the democracy protests in Hong Kong — with Jillian Melchior of the Wall Street Journal editorial page. After playing out the scenarios for how the Hong Kong protests end, Misha and John take up Misha’s recent article on the collapse of pork production in China and the political pressure of rising food prices on the Xi regime.

    Agree. This is a very important subject. Regrettably I agree with Mr. Yoo that this is not going to end well – and may, indeed, be the end of Hong Kong – but I have hope and prayers.

    And also has it really been that long since the last podcast? Did John Yoo have to spend all his time eating McRibs or what?
