Before Rob Gifford got his current job as NPR London Bureau Chief, he spent six years as NPR’s Beijing correspondent.  While there, he made the 3,000 mile journey from east to west along China’s Route 312.  Then he wrote a book about it, China Road.  Rob joins us via ISDN from London today to tell us all about his exotic roadtrip, his time in China, and to share some observations about China’s present and future role as growing world superpower.

While you’re listening, you can go to Rob’s site to see some pictures from China, like the one below, taken by Patrick Fraser.  Click here to go right to the pics.
