You may have seen the recent Tencent Documentary Series, Bon Voyage, that follows five Chinese students living abroad during the pandemic. In the last episode, they follow past Spark guest, Jiakai Lou. When we first talked with Jiakai, he was in Missoula, Montana at the height of the pandemic sitting at a crossroad: To stay in the U.S. or to go. If you’ve seen the documentary, you know that Jiakai ultimately made the decision to go home. His episode closes with him boarding his plane. But what happened after that? Jiakai came back to the Spark to share what life has been like after his plane landed in this two-part conversation (in both English and Mandarin) that you won’t want to miss. Thank you so much for listening! We’d love for you to join in on the conversation! If you haven’t already, please rate and review this podcast!
