Not only do we bring you your usual preview of ChinesePod's awesome Mandarin Podcasts for the week, we bring news of a brighter future for all, where everyone can not only speak and understand Chinese, but read and write as well! YES! We have officially partnered with awesome guys at Skritter.com. This partnership is even more powerful than the Lion Voltron. Listen to their interview with John and check out John's ChinesePod Blog Post for more details. What's more, with the added bonus of the automatic Premium to Guided upgrade with the purchase of a 12 month Premium Subscription, August is an unbelievably great month for you.
