Pleasant snapshots of true Taiwan!

I don't remember how I found the host blog and podcast. After I downloaded and listened to several episodes, I really love it! On the top of all, the show of "What's Up in Taiwan" is fun to listen. The host is funny, the conversation with the guest is sincere and casual, and each segment is short (~15 min). So it's stress free to listen to the podcasting in every aspect. For the content, it's great. The show is about interviewing with international people living in or visiting Taiwan for different reasons, either for a long term or only for a short time. They talk about their personal experience, good or not-so-good, about Taiwan. I'm a Taiwanese student studying in the US for more than 6 years. I remember the culture shock when I came to the US for the first time. I'm familiar the excitement and confusion about seeing the different things and facing the frustrated situations. I know how good it is to make connection with people more or less different from you. I know how good it is to feel yourself adapted to a new environment. And this is exactly what you can find in this WUIT podcast. It is not the stereotype presented from TV or movies, which can only be misleading. And only these little trivial things, good or not-so-good, and these personal perceptions, enjoyable or not so, can reflect the true life of a foreign country. To me, this 'foreign country' happens to be my beloved homeland. This podcast reminds me a lot of Taiwan that I almost forget. And yes, that is the true Taiwan that foreign people probably can seldom learn from the mainstream sources. I recommend this podcast to everyone who wants to learn more about Taiwan, to travel to Taiwan, or to just see the true color of living in an Asian country far far away. And of course, I recommend this podcast to every Taiwanese away from home. Believe me, you'll like the show!

One of the best Taiwanese podcasts

This is one of the best Taiwanese podcasts I have ever found. The host uses a very hilarious way to introduce the dynamics and culture of this beautiful island. What makes this podcast more valuable is that the host interviews foreigners who have been here for a long time, providing a vivid yet "naked" image of what Taiwan has to offer. Highly recommended.

Interesting and informative

The liveliness of the interviews is compelling. We don't know enough about this fascinating island and its culture. I enjoy the different stories and varieties of people/careers/hobbies. If you have an interest in new Chinese culture, take a listen.
