About This Podcast

What happens when someone becomes an international symbol – but they turn out to symbolize something else entirely?

What happens when someone becomes an international symbol – but they turn out to symbolize something else entirely? Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng became an icon of freedom and democracy after fighting against China’s One Child Policy and suffering years of unlawful imprisonment. In 2012, following a daring midnight escape, he landed in the United States a hero. But that’s only the beginning of his story. Just a few years later, he would re-enter the spotlight as an avid Trump supporter and MAGA fanatic. How did this happen? Alison Klayman, Colin Jones, and Yangyang Cheng set out on a journey to find out – did Guangcheng change, or was he totally misunderstood from the beginning?
