Mary Kay Magistad (Moderator) was a Beijing-based China correspondent for 15 years -- opening NPR's first Beijing bureau in the mid '90s, and returning for the BBC/PRI program "The World." Over that time, she reported in every province in China, and in most countries in Asia, and several in Africa, on how China's fast economic growth and rise as a global power were affecting individual lives, and reshaping the world's economy, environment and political equations. Since then, Mary Kay created the "Whose Century Is It?" podcast, and is now working on a new podcast, called "On China's New Silk Road." It was reported around the world, and shows the global impact of China's ambition -- including the Belt & Road Initiative -- and how that is seen and felt in different parts of the world.
Mary Kay received a BS in journalism, with a second major in history, from Northwestern University and an MA in international relations from Sussex University in England.
