Join us for a special episode with guest researcher, consultant, and author Rachel Katz for an intimate look at the lives of Chinese truckers. Rachel’s work explores and brings together an exploration of how people live and work in contemporary China. Trucking is one of the most important, but understudied, forms of transit and economy in contemporary China. Rachel climbed aboard for six months, traveled with truckers, got to know their routes, their families, hardships and opportunities. We converse with Rachel about her experience doing ethnographic fieldwork as well as about larger issues of economics, transportation, family, gender, and more!  Aired 8/5/14
