Little Red Podcast - "Killing Me Softly: the Power Pandemic"

21 April 2020

China’s Covid diplomacy dispatching facemasks and respirators overseas is being hailed as the ultimate soft power play. But is this really soft power? To answer this question, we’re joined by the man who coined the term, Joseph Nye, the former dean of Harvard Kennedy School of Government as well as Bates Gill, professor in the Department of Security Studies at Macquarie University, and Natasha Kassam, a research fellow in the Diplomacy and Public Opinion Program at the Lowy Institute.

They are the 2018 winners of podcast of the year in the News & Current Affairs category of the Australian Podcast Awards.
