Kaiser Kuo in 2008
|Born||March 6, 1966|
Kaiser Kuo (simplified Chinese: 郭怡广; traditional Chinese: 郭怡廣; pinyin: Guō Yíguǎng; born March 6, 1966) is a Chinese American freelance writer and rock. He is a former member of the rock band Tang Dynasty and has further enlivened contemporary Chinese music culture with the formation of another ethnically-oriented heavy metal rock group, Spring and Autumn (Chinese: 春秋). Kaiser's musical involvement also involved playing bass for Dirty Deeds, an AC/DC cover band based in Beijing.
Kaiser previously worked as director for international communications for Chinese search engine Baidu. Before that he was a technology correspondent for Red Herring magazine, and also worked as director of digital strategy, China, for Ogilvy & Mather in Beijing. He used to write a column for the foreigner-focused English-language magazine The Beijinger from 2001 to 2011.
In 2010, Kaiser started the Sinica show, a current affairs podcast based in Beijing that invites prominent China journalists and China-watchers to participate in uncensored discussions about Chinese political and economic affairs. Guests and co-hosts have included Gady Epstein, Mary Kay Magistad of Public Radio International, Tania Branigan of The Guardian, Evan Osnos of The New Yorker, Arthur Kroeber of Dragonomics, Jeremy Goldkorn of Danwei and Bill Bishop, founder of CBS MarketWatch. Sinica is recorded at the Popup Chinese studios in Beijing and published through the site each Friday. In April 2016, Kuo announced that the Sinica Podcast was acquired by an unnamed New York start up and that he would return to the United States with his family, to focus full-time on Sinica.
