UPDATE: I'm sorry in advance for the limited release of episodes! I've had to cut back on the frequency of Turn because I’ve been inundated with audio editing and production work. The positive side is that I’m getting ready to launch some exciting new projects, which I think you will really enjoy (details to come)! What this means for Turn of the Century, though, is that we’re going to move to a monthly release schedule. I’ll post more often when I can, but I just want to be upfront about what to expect

But anyway, you're interested in the history! From 1899 to 1901, the secret society of Righteous and Harmonious Fists, nicknamed “Boxers”, led a massive uprising in China. This rebellion allied with the Qing dynasty to try and topple Western colonists and Christian missionaries. Over several dramatic months, the Boxers made it all the way to Beijing and laid siege to the foreign legation. A coalition army of Russian, Japanese, American, Austrian, British, French and Italian troops fought their way to the capital and defeated the Boxers.

Edi, host of Sinobabble, joins the show to retell the events and importance of the Boxer Rebellion. It’s time to lace up and get ready for history at the Turn of the Century....
