【聊了什么】

从“大放异彩”的少数族裔候选人Vivek Ramaswamy,到肯尼迪家族的“局外人” RFK Jr.,再到更早的杨安泽,特朗普时代后,没有担任过公职的“非主流候选人”已经成为了两党初选中不可小觑的一股势力,他们为何能吸引到选民的支持,他们走多远?

The post-Trump era political arena has seen no shortage of unconventional candidates: from rising superstar Vivek Ramaswamy, to the “outsider” of the famed Kennedy family — RFK Jr., to the UBI candidate Andrew Yang from the last election cycle.

In this episode, we dive into their political journey — how did they rise to become formidable foes without ever having held public office? What makes them appealing to their supporters and how far can they go? Follow along as we watch their career with great interest.

【我们是谁 Who We Are】

美轮美换是一档深入探讨当今美国政治的中文播客。

美轮美换的前身是“选·美 iAmElection”,一档由游天龙、talich、林垚、庄巧祎等人于2015年创立的中文播客,选·美聚集了一群关心美国政治的学者、律师、媒体人、观察者和爱好者,在2016年大选前后吸引了大量的听众和读者,成为一档现象级的播客。2020年大选前,talich等人重新推出了“美轮美换”,更新了16集。2023年,新一轮美国大选即将开始,我们决定将选·美和美轮美换的传统延续下去,推出新版的“美轮美换”播客。

The American Roulette is produced by Baihua Media. It is a podcast dedicated to helping the Chinese-speaking community understand fast-changing U.S. politics.

The American Roulette’s predecessor is “iAmElection”, a Chinese-language podcast created by Tianlong You, Talich, Yao Lin, and Qiaoy Zhuangi in 2015. The podcast brought together a group of scholars, lawyers, media veterans, observers and enthusiasts who care about American politics. At the height of its popularity, it was featured in the New York Times, and attracted an estimated 70,000 audience who listened each month. For the 2020 election, Talich and others relaunched the podcast as "美轮美换" with 16 new episodes.

In 2023, as the new round of U.S. presidential election is about to begin, we’re building on the legacy of “iAmElection” and “美轮美换” to launch a new podcast that we hope will become your go-to American Politics podcast. We introduce: “美轮美换 The American Roulette.”
