Catch up on this week’s East Meets West shows (29th June – 5th July 2018) . Catherine plays you music from around the world and catches you up on international stories. On air 9-10pm on Panda Radio and on demand right here.


The temperature’s rising. K-pop superwomen BLACKPINK smash Billboard’s Hot 100, a sizzling car bonnet provides an unlikely lifehack, and Yorkshire’s Syrian cheese makers are here to save your barbecue.


A new anime film crosses borders and comes to Netflix. Plus, a disgruntled train passenger claims sweet vengeance.


Two mind-expanding stories: Kids travelling the world, and the Chinese village that took up yoga.


A sea-creatures special. Crabs invade Maryland, while misfortune strikes Japan’s “psychic” octopus.


Continuing the “psychic” animal theme, tonight’s show includes a tribute to China’s clairvoyant Men’s World Cup cat.
