When Ethan Lou unexpectedly found himself quarantining with his uncle in Beijing, he learned that his uncle was trying to bridge the distance between him and his children living in the United States by sending them near-daily emails of advice.
Lou adapted that writing into an essay, which he reads for us on the show.
You can read his essay here, “Dear my children: A Chinese father on parental love and cultural heritage.”
Correction: An earlier version of this podcast incorrectly said Ethan Lou and his uncle were quarantining in Wuhan. In fact, they were in Beijing. This version has been corrected.
