In his free time, NPR correspondent Frank Langfitt likes to drive around Shanghai as a sort of free taxi cab, offering rides to strangers, to get to know the real lives of ordinary Chinese.

He sometimes records their stories, for his ongoing series Streets of Shanghai.
Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson talks to Langfitt about what he’s been learning, and what it’s like driving in China.

Interview Highlights: Frank Langfitt

"Instead of just getting off at another exit he decided he would turn around and drive back through traffic to find the right exit."
