MPBN’s Maine Calling: Chinese New Year

On Tuesday, January 24, 2012, Maine Public Radio hosted three of our esteemed CAFAM members on their new talk show, “Maine Calling”to talk about the Chinese community in Maine, the Chinese New Year, and other related topics.  The guests included Craig Dietrich, founder of CAFAM and retired professor of Chinese History at USM, Suzanne Fox, a former Board member and president and founder of Fox Intercultural Consulting Services, and Connie Zhu, an incredibly talented CAFAM member and adjunct language instructor at Colby College.  A fantastic, very informative show, please click the link below to tune in on the archived recording.  It’s available as an .mp3 or Podcast file.
