Listen: New “Node Worthy” Podcast Discusses iPhone X’s China Impact


If you’re the podcast listening type, here’s a new one worthy of your time and headspace: Node Worthy, the official ‘cast from our friends at TechNode.com. Editor in chief John Artman, who comes from a radio background, says this was a long time in the making, and lays out the logistical challenges of podcasting in an introductory post:

The problem with podcasting, much like any quality content, is that you can’t just do it; you have to prepare first: choose a name, design a logo, decide the format, choose music, and acclimate writers to talking (surprise surprise, they’re much more comfortable with the written word!).

Yep, taking notes here… planning to launch my own podcast here on Radii next month. (Stay tuned.)

In the mean time, enjoy John & team’s first in what will be a weekly series digging in to the China-tech topics of the day (right now, the conversation centers around what Apple’s insanely expensive new phone means for China; dollars to donuts next week they’ll touch on the coming Global Bike-Share War):

If you’re not the podcasting type… here’s a summary of TechNode’s reporting on how Apple’s recent announcement is resonating in China:
