This week we have an update on Australia’s evolving and increasingly strained relationship with China and we chat to Michael Smith, one of the last remaining Aussie journos in China who fled last year amid a tense diplomatic standoff. He tells us all his time covering President Xi, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Uighurs in Xinjiang, and his new book, “The Last Correspondent: Dispatches from the frontline of Xi's new China.”
