Join host Mary Kay Magistad for a new podcast that explores how China’s calculated bet on its new global trading infrastructure—its Silk Road for the modern era—may take it to the top. Reported from five continents, this series uncovers the effects of the most sweeping global infrastructure initiative in history.

Join host Mary Kay Magistad as she explores how China’s New Silk Road may change the world. Dozens of countries have invited China to build roads, railways, ports, 5G networks, and more. How is China’s global ambition seen around the world and what impact are its investments having on the ground? Over nine episodes, Mary Kay, a former China correspondent for NPR and PRX’s “The World,” partners with local journalists on five continents to uncover the effects of the most sweeping global infrastructure initiative in history. From the Global Reporting Centre, “On China’s New Silk Road” launches September 2, with new episodes dropping weekly.
