Chris Fenton joins the podcast to discuss China’s influence in America and how it has evolved over the years. We explore the history of Hollywood and media in the culture and whether or not they can be a force for good. We also discuss the complicated place the U.S. business community finds itself in with the Chinese Communist Party—is it still possible to export American ideals through capitalism, or is that a thing of the past?


For seventeen years, Chris Fenton served as president of DMG Entertainment Motion Picture Group and GM of DMG North America—a multi-billion-dollar global media company headquartered in Beijing. He has produced or supervised twenty-one films, grossing $2 billion in worldwide box-office sales. As an author, Fenton chronicled much of that work in Feeding The Dragon: Inside the Trillion Dollar Dilemma Facing Hollywood, the NBA, & American Business. At present, he speaks regularly on China and the exchange of commerce and culture globally and hosts U.S. Congressional member delegations on diplomatic missions to China and ASEAN countries focused on trade, media, and investment.
