Producer

Panthea enjoys talking to trees, hanging out at 60 Wujiang Lu, and biking around Shanghai's French Concession. She is usually covered in cat hair, which might explain the excessive biking: she's secretly hoping that the wind will, uh, sweep away all that kitty fuzz.

MAXIME DEPONDT

I was raised by an oracle. At the age of 12, I decided to leave home and cross Europe— from north to south— in quest of a hint about the real nature of mussel fishing. Idea: “This color was the first that came to mind when I received a phone call at 23:00 from the sweetest person on earth who, in an amazing effort of overwhelming generosity, kindly allowed me to go back to my beloved office."
