Whose Century Is It?

"Whose Century Is It?" explores ideas, trends and twists shaping the 21st century. Is this century China's, or once again America's, or someone else's entirely? It's too early to say; but creator and host Mary Kay Magistad offers interviews, stories and perspectives from around the world that provide informative— and often surprising— ways to think about the question. Mary Kay is a former NPR and PRI foreign correspondent and Asia hand who has reported from some 40 countries, on both sides of the turn of the 21st century.
