Podcast #27: One Month in Chinese Jail
On this episode of the podcast I’m joined by Doug, who just emerged from nearly one month in a Chinese jail due to a visa law violation. As is the case with many China expats who’ve been in this situation, Doug believed himself to be acting in accordance with China’s regulations, until the PSB begun investigating details surrounding his Chinese study in Chengdu. Misled by the Chinese language school providing his visa, Doug regrettably walked right into trouble. Doug tells his story and offers tips for staying out of trouble and preparing for the worst.
* The Chinese language school which provided Doug’s visa
* Interrogation by local PSB
* Chinese jail culture
* Befriending cellmates
* Illness in jail and the role of the U.S. Consulate
* Doug’s feelings on China
