Matt Sheehan's Newsletter
Welcome to the 40th edition of The Chinafornia Newsletter, your weekly digest of news connecting the Golden State and the Middle Kingdom.
I’m excited to share with everyone the first video in a new Chinese-language culture+lifestyle+travel show that I’ve created: 加州精神 aka “The California Spirit.” There’s nothing I love more than trying to spread some of the that California magic with people in China, and I think the show will do just that. The first episode is on Stanford, and links are in the must-reads below.
Also, I recently did an interview with Young China Watchers about my experience in China and work on Chinafornia. YCW arranges some great speakers, so check out the interview and some of their events.

The Chinafornia Newsletter is created by me, Matt Sheehan. I’m a fellow at The Paulson Institute and write for the think tank’s site MacroPolo. I spent over five years in mainland China, including two as the first-ever China correspondent for The Huffington Post and The WorldPost. I’m now back in my native California where I’m consulting on market entry and communications for China-related projects, and writing a book on Chinafornia.
You can read some of my best work on my own website: An Optimist’s Guide to China. Follow me on Twitter @mattsheehan88 and feel free to email me at
