#42 - Jack Ma: China has only one leader

33 mins | Sep 1, 2021

Today's episode from 2nd September 2021. Coming up this morning: What happens when an unstoppable force (a billionaire entrepreneur) meets an immovable object (the Chinese Communist Party)? We take a look at how the richest man in China fought and lost against the CCP, and what it could teach others. Later on, clichés around the mid-point in life are never far out of reach, but what if making a significant change or taking risks actually paid off? We meet the people who changed course in midlife – and loved it. Jack Ma built a technological empire through Ant Group, rivalled only by the likes of Bezos or Zuckerberg. In this feature, Keith Zhai, Lingling Wei and Jing Yang charter Ma's success to rival tech giants to his forceful downfall. Emine Saner talks to a group of people who have found renewed purpose in life after they chose to switch things up. Change can be scary, but as their experiences show, your mid-life can really be a new beginning. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
