Lunar New Year Podcast

Ken Smith and Joanna C. Lee

Ken Smith and Joanna C. Lee

On February 7th, I got to talk with Joanna Lee and Ken Smith, authors of the Pocket Chinese Almanac (which is covered in a recent post), about the history of the larger Chinese Almanac, or Tong Sing; pre-holiday preparations, and some predictions for the Year of the Monkey, as well as a short lesson on how to say Happy New Year in Cantonese and Mandarin (hint:  its not “gong hay fat choy”).   While Joanna and Ken couldn’t join me in the studio, we did the interview over Skype, which just added to the funky vibe.  Give a listen, and Enjoy!
