Talking Taiwan’s 26 Notable Episodes Ep 240

By Felicia Lin

We had a beautiful day on Sunday at the Passport to Taiwan in New York City’s Union Square Park. Congratulations to the Passport to Taiwan team for making the event a huge success! The park was packed and food lines were long. We were so glad to be invited to be a part of it. For us it was a welcome change of pace. It’s not often that we get to meet our listeners in person!

We want to thank everyone who stopped by the Talking Taiwan podcasting booth and those that tuned in to our livestream on Facebook. We did have some technical issues with the sound on our livestream and a very loud generator in the booth, so thank you for bearing with us. Kaju, our sound engineer and executive producer, is optimistic that he’ll be able to do some sound editing magic with the interviews we recorded that day.

Some of the people that stopped by that day included Tom Fifield of the Taiwan Employment Gold Card Office, author Ed Lin, multi-disciplinary artist Chin Chih Yang, singer and musician Jilliyeah, and Christine Su of TANG (Taiwanese American Next Generation). We’ll be sharing those interviews as future episodes of Talking Taiwan.

We’d also like to give a huge shoutout to our volunteers Josh and Marcellus. The two of you were indispensable in helping us to get set up and breaking down at the end of the day. We really couldn’t have done it without you!

In preparation for Passport to Taiwan, we created a selection of audio clips from some of our most notable interviews to play in our booth and we thought we’d share them with you here. Whether you’re new to Talking Taiwan or one of our loyal listeners we hope that you enjoy it and maybe even discover an episode that interests you.
