Great, but needs to open its horizons and topics

By Onyx_Gamer - May 10 2016
Read more
I have been listening to this podcast for a bit, and I really like it. It makes me even more excited about the possibility of going to work in Taiwan. Still, I wish they would interview and discuss topics that are possibly outside their realm of comfortability. What is it like for non-white westerners in Taiwan? Gay westerners? Westerners with disabilities? What about foreigners who live there and want to do something outside of teaching English? It's a great podcast, but their scope and vision is too limited to the bubble they live in.

Articulate

These three young woman were articulate, eloquent, and insightful. They beautifully described the mission of their enterprise, "Becoming", and how it is not only important in Taiwan but to the world at large. Very inspiring. I wish them great success and I hope they receive the support that this type of effort should get.
