There are 60 million Chinese expats living abroad. We talk to Sarah Cook from Freedom House about how the Chinese government is influencing global opinion on Hong Kong and more through a far-reaching campaign of propaganda. Also, what happened to tumblr? That's what some fans of the blogging site are asking after tumblr sold to the parent company of former rival Wordpress last week for as little as $3 million. In 2013 Yahoo paid $1.1 billion for it. Host Peter O'Dowd speaks to Kara Swisher, editor-at-large at Recode. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's August 20, 2019 full broadcast.
