Ep 328: Claire Chao

Claire and her aging mother Isabel begin their journey together by visiting the once-beautiful mansion in Shanghai where the young Isabel had grown up. Much more than a trip down Memory Lane, “Remembering Shanghai” reveals the triumphs and tragedies going back five generations that mirror China’s own challenges. Chao has layered the bones of this country’s history with the flesh of her own family.
