On the podcast this week a documentary from James Miles called The Lost Voices of Tiananmen Square. Miles was the BBC’s China correspondent when the student protests and subsequent crackdown unfolded back in 1989. Twenty years later he takes stock and searches for meaning. Lots of ways to listen:

Congrats to my colleagues at PRI’s The World Mary Kay Magistad (correspondent), Jennifer Goren (editor), and Traci Tong (producer) on winning this year’s Lowell Thomas Award for best radio news or interpretation of international affairs from the Overseas Press Club. The judges said their 7-part series Young China about Beijing’s one-child policy “stood out for the depth and breadth of its reporting on a complex topic.”
