Chris Fenton on the Tangled Web of Chinese Influence in America

Chris Fenton joins the podcast to discuss China’s influence in America and how it has evolved over the years. We explore the history of Hollywood and media in the culture and whether or not they can be a force for good. We also discuss the complicated place the U.S. business community finds itself in with the Chinese Communist Party—is it still possible to export American ideals through capitalism, or is that a thing of the past? 


For seventeen years, Chris Fenton served as president of DMG Entertainment Motion Picture Group and GM of DMG North America—a multi-billion-dollar global media company headquartered in Beijing. He has produced or supervised twenty-one films, grossing $2 billion in worldwide box-office sales. As an author, Fenton chronicled much of that work in Feeding The Dragon: Inside the Trillion Dollar Dilemma Facing Hollywood, the NBA, & American Business. At present, he speaks regularly on China and the exchange of commerce and culture globally and hosts U.S. Congressional member delegations on diplomatic missions to China and ASEAN countries focused on trade, media, and investment.

Lindsey Stroud: Policy Focus: E-Cigarettes and Public Health

Lindsey Stroud joins the podcast to discuss November’s Policy Focus: E-Cigarettes and Public Health. Tragically, 480,000 Americans die each year from smoking-related diseases and illnesses. Many want to stop but struggle to do so and instead have transitioned from combustible cigarette use to safer e-cigarettes and vaping products. Despite the good news of harm reduction products, there is a large effort by health organizations and lawmakers to eliminate their use. In this episode, we’ll look at the data behind e-cigarettes and vaping products, the regulations imposed on them, and the best policies and products to reduce tobacco harm, especially among young people. Lindsey Stroud is a visiting fellow at Independent Women’s Forum. She is the director of the Taxpayers Protection Alliance’s (TPA) Consumer Center, which provides data and analysis to inform and assist policymakers when addressing consumer products. Stroud’s main focus is on providing up-to-date information on adult access to goods including alcohol, tobacco, and vapor products, as well as regulatory policies that affect adult access to other consumer products. In her role, Stroud manages the team at the Consumer Center and has testified before state and international lawmakers, led coalition efforts, authored state analyses, and hosts a monthly webinar featuring international guests.--She Thinks is a podcast for women (and men) who are sick of the spin in today’s news cycle and are seeking the truth.
