RONALD PAREDES designed the logo of the podcast you’re
listening to, but that’s only a tiny hint of what he’s all about.
On our first talk (linked below) we talked about his background in
Venezuela and his initial move to China when things went south in
his home country. Today we discuss his experiences lately in
Nantong, China as a father, husband, freelancer artist and
designer, and socially aware human. Ronald cares deeply about
women’s rights, homeless or otherwise displaced people, the
overnight bricking up of the back road out of his town, rising
nationalism and racism, the lack of acceptance and growing outright
resentment he receives from less-educated people in his relatively
rural home, and his feeling of being rootless and floating as he
enters middle life. It’s a moving, candid, and powerful share by
Ronald, and I’m honored to bring it to you.
