Western governments, led by the U.S., have been taking a harder line on trade with China. At stake is global economic leadership, particularly in vital technologies from semiconductors to Artificial Intelligence to electric vehicles, as well as cooperation on climate goals. But how united are the U.S. and Europe on how to approach trade relations with China? What steps are big companies taking as tensions with Beijing rise, and how is Beijing responding?In this episode, Asia Matters' Andrew Peaple is joined by Emily Benson from the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Alicia Garcia-Herrero at the European think-tank Bruegel.
There's never been a better time to experience gourmet dining in Taiwan. During this year's Michelin awards, the storied guide recognized 321 establishments, 148 in Taipei, 64 in Taichung, 56 in Tainan, and 53 in Kaohsiung. The group was made up of a range of mouthwatering dining options from the street eats that Taiwan is best known for (aka "Bib Gourmands") to high-end dining choices -- including two newly minted three-star options. Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of Michelin Guides joined ICRT's Hope Ngo to talk about how the selections were made, and why the storied international gourmet guide is captivated by Taiwan's dining scene as a whole.
Taiwan has long lived under the shadow of China's desire to take over its territory. And as China's economy and military have grown, so too has the threat of a potential invasion. What is Taipei's strategy for defense and security, and how is it marshaling support from other countries? Ravi Agrawal is joined by Taiwanese Foreign Minister Joseph Wu.

Jesse recently went back to Taiwan for the first time since before the pandemic. Although for less than ideal reasons (the death of his grandfather), he was grateful for the opportunity to reconnect with his extended family back in the motherland. We also hear about Jesse's shenanigans going out solo to experience LGBT nightlife in Taipei by himself, and what it was like finally being out to the majority of his family members. Across all of these experiences, we talk about the legendary friendliness of Taiwanese people, how much Jesse felt he "belonged" despite being an American-born kid with imperfect Mandarin, and also the refreshing ease of being of the majority population (as opposed to our experience as minorities in the US). How about you listeners? What was your most memorable trip back to the motherland and what about it stood out to you? Let us know in the Spotify Q&A section or in our comments on social media!

This week, Mike and Jude are joined by C. Raja Mohan, Senior Fellow with the Asia Society Policy Institute in Delhi and Visiting Research Professor and former Director of the Institute of South Asian Studies (ISAS) at the National University of Singapore. Mohan was the founding director of Carnegie India in Delhi – the sixth international center of Carnegie Endowment for Peace, and has previously served on India's National Security Advisory Board. They begin by examining India's strategic outlook since the end of the Cold War, considering India's history, the evolution of its economic model, and shifts in the political perspectives and priorities of the Indian government. They then turn to India's role in BRICS – examining the relationship of India and China within the organization, the reasoning behind India's participation in BRICS, and implications of the August 2023 BRICS summit. Next they discuss Delhi's changing relationship with Taipei and expanding engagement with Japan and Australia. The conversation concludes with an assessment of what India wants for its strategic future, and how it would interact with the international world order.
In just a few short decades, Germany has transformed into an epicenter of the arts. Whether it's painting, writing, or music, artists from all over the world know that Germany is a place where your creativity can flourish. That reputation has led many to this European country, not just to create art, but also to appreciate it in a more tangible way. It's also become a place where people can build a new life and start again; which is something we beautifully explore across this episode. I've been to Germany a few times throughout my life and crafting this episode made me appreciate the country in a new way. My favorite thing that I learned was that to Germans: the only rule of creativity is for artists to challenge themselves and the audience. Joining me today are three artists who symbolize the eclectic creativity that Germany fosters. I'm joined by the unbelievably talented Wallis Bird (3:45), Milky Chance (45:40), and Meagre Martin (1:23:12). Also, next week I'll be dropping a radio broadcast that goes along with this episode. The playlist for that will be full of incredible German artists (along with other artists who call Germany home). That radio broadcast will be dropping on September 12th and you'll find that only on Spotify. RIP to Kieran (aka Profound Beats). The track you're hearing in the intro is his tune Twilight in Taipei.

Featuring Natalie Marlin (https://twitter.com/NataliesNotInIt)! Even though MILLENNIUM MAMBO shows us a vivid portrait of Vicky, a woman struggling with personal change at the dawn of the millennium, it's arguably not REALLY about that. It's almost more about her relationship to herself – rather, to the version of herself who makes those choices – as narrated by Vicky 10 years in the future. Vicky's hushed voiceover and swallowed admissions build a narrative of her recursive patterns in 2001: Her tumultuous relationship with the manipulative Hao Hao, her would-be partnership with kindhearted criminal Jack, her run-ins with the Taipei nightclub scene, and her frequent returns to snowy Hokkaido. At the same time, they're calling attention to the wants and desires of 2011 Vicky, calling into question how inescapable some loops really are. “Millennium Fades” by Natalie Marlin for Perisphere, the Trylon blog: https://www.perisphere.org/2023/08/04/millennium-fades/ Find Natalie… - On Twitter at https://twitter.com/NataliesNotInIt - On Letterboxd at https://letterboxd.com/framingthepic/ - On Trylove Episode 162: THE THIRD MAN (1949), Episode 182: CHESS OF THE WIND (1979), Episode 197: RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (1985), and Episode 210: MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (2015) The tweet about the Helsinki pallas cat Jason mentions at the top of the episode: https://twitter.com/NoNameGirl8686/status/1689794141033463808 Watch MILLENNIUM MAMBO on the Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/qian-xi-man-po-aka-millennium-mambo-2001 Follow us on Twitter at https://twitter.com/trylovepodcast and email us at email@example.com to get in touch!

Author Abigail Hing Wen joins NüVoices to discuss her NYT best selling YA novel, Loveboat, Taipei and its film adaptation Love in Taipei, based on the summer study tour that started more than half a century ago.For the price of a plane ticket and about $400, diaspora students between 18 and 23 from the U.S., Canada, and elsewhere participated in the government-subsidized, six-week language and cultural summer program. At its peak during the 1990s, some 1,000 students descended onto Taiwan every summer to have fun, escape from parents, and connect with their roots. Nicknamed after the 1970s/80s American TV show for the lasting relationships that developed, attendees found deep and lasting bonds. There are other cultural study opportunities and programs for youths and young adults today, but the "Love Boat" as many knew it shrank and changed considerably over the last two decades along with the changing political tides in Taiwan.In this episode, Abigail discusses the program and its history, her own experiences with the tour, the legendary stories and escapades that sprang from the students' experiences, and what it was like to make a film adaptation for a new generation of diaspora youth.Love in Taipei is available for streaming now through Paramount+
Over The Rainbow is the second episode of a 360 video trilogy by Craig Quintero (see my interview about All That Remains from Venice 2022). Quintero is the artistic director of Riverbed Theatre, a Taipei-based performance group that has been doing 1-on-1 experimental theatre shows. Quintero has been translating these 1-on-1 shows into 360 videos in a way that transcends the audience's expectations, in a way that is very much inspired by the performance work of Marilyn Arsem. I had a chance to catch up with Quintero to talk about his philosophy of storytelling, the influence of Arsem on his work, and the role of associative memories. This is a listener-supported podcast through the Voices of VR Patreon. Music: Fatality

Anyone who has lived through an earthquake, or twenty, in a 1970s-built back alley Taipei apartment knows a little about geology. China has its fair share of dramatic geological events, and today we go back to class to learn about them. So next time the building starts swaying, fear not. This is not scary, it is simply another rush-inducing Chinese learning experience. Episode link: https://www.chinesepod.com/0878
À Taïwan, la problématique du prix de l'immobilier s'invite dans la campagne des élections présidentielles de janvier prochain. Elle est la 21ᵉ économie mondiale. Mais, à Taipei, la capitale, le rapport entre les salaires et le prix de l'immobilier est parmi les plus élevés au monde. Sous un soleil de plomb, ils sont des dizaines de milliers réunis devant le palais présidentiel de Taïwan ce dimanche 6 août. « Justice en matière de logement » est le mot d'ordre du mouvement. « À Taïwan, nos salaires sont assez faibles, et tout notre argent part dans l'immobilier. Si tu veux acheter un logement, tu dois t'endetter pour au moins 40 ans ! Je pense que le logement est un droit fondamental. Il ne devrait pas y avoir autant de gens qui spéculent dessus », déclare Jonas, ingénieur de 33 ans.À Taipei, le prix de l'immobilier rivalise avec celui des plus grandes capitales mondiales. Mais à 750 euros par mois, le salaire minimum ne suit pas. Résultat, la moitié des Taïwanais âgés de 25 à 40 ans vivent encore chez leurs parents, comme Abby, 37 ans, consultante en économie : « J'ai voté pour le parti au pouvoir lors des deux dernières élections. Je pense que leur politique en matière de relation internationale est très bien. Mais le problème, c'est que les questions sociales sont négligées. Mon petit frère a acheté un appartement, car il a un enfant, mais il a du mal à joindre les deux bouts. »« Les prix augmentent constamment »Depuis les années 1990, les associations dénoncent le problème, mais l'écart entre les salaires et les prix de l'immobilier a presque triplé et le taux de natalité, lui, est en chute libre. « La principale raison, c'est la fiscalité. La taxe sur la propriété est extrêmement basse, donc les gens investissent beaucoup d'argent dans l'immobilier et les prix augmentent constamment. La conséquence, c'est que les jeunes laissent tomber et habitent avec leurs parents pendant très longtemps et cela veut dire que tu ne peux pas avoir de famille et pas d'enfant », affirme Allen Chan, chercheur au sein du collectif Ours.Élu en 2016, le Parti démocrate progressiste avait promis de s'attaquer au problème. Mais dans les faits, hors de question de modifier les règles du jeu, et notamment la fiscalité. 80% de propriétaires, c'est aussi autant d'électeurs inquiets de voir leurs biens perdre de la valeur. Pour le ministre-adjoint de l'intérieur, Ching-Chun Hua, « certaines ONG voudraient que le gouvernement fasse quelque chose pour réduire les prix de l'immobilier très rapidement. Mais ce n'est pas bon pour l'économie ». Il ajoute : « Nous voulons que le marché soit stable. Un marché stable, c'est mieux pour les propriétaires et c'est mieux pour l'économie taïwanaise. »Cette inaction pourrait coûter cher au Parti démocrate progressiste lors des élections présidentielles de janvier prochain. Selon de récents sondages, seuls 20% des moins de 30 ans souhaitent voter pour son candidat. À lire aussiLe marché de l'immobilier plombé par la hausse des taux
China might invade Taiwan in August, or at least some of its islands, according to this week's China Unscripted guest Guermantes Lailari. In this episode, we talk about what makes August the most likely month, what Taiwanese islands China might want to take, and how the US could deter China from invading.

Last year, he was a Ministry of Foreign Affairs Taiwan Fellow. This year he is a visiting scholar at National Chengchi University in Taipei.
I met Stan Kwiatkowski, better known as YouTuber Stan from Poland 斯坦-波蘭ê台灣囡仔, at this year's Taiwanese American Conference where he was one of the speakers. His YouTube channel now has over 200,000 subscribers. And if that wasn't impressive enough, the first thing you'll notice after going to his YouTube channel is how fluently he speaks Mandarin Chinese in practically all of the videos. The content that Stan and his wife produce for their YouTube channel consists of political commentary, interviews and news with a focus on topics related to Taiwan's political situation and security. Stan also has some English videos on the Love Taiwan YouTube channel. We'll share links to both of these YouTube channels on TalkingTaiwan.com for this episode.

During the pandemic, Kaarina Chu Mackenzie turned to art to find a sense of home. What resulted were a series of paintings inspired by the Raohe Night Market in Taipei. That became an immersive art exhibit called The Night Market which ran at the Bobble Haus, a gallery, shop and event space in New York City's Lower East Side.

Here's a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode: · How the pandemic led Kaarina to focus more on creating paintings which later became part of an immersive art exhibit called The Night Market · How Kaarina designed the immersive art exhibit at the Bobble Haus · How she brought the night market experience to life at the opening reception of her art exhibit by and engaging all the senses through sound, light, and food · How the art that Kaarina created was also a reaction to the Asian hate that happened during the pandemic · How creating The Night Market exhibit was Kaarina's way of creating a community for herself · How and why Kaarina paints on large life-sized canvases · How she hopes people feel when looking at her art · Kaarina's connection to Taiwan and upbringing in China · Kaarina's future plans for her night market series · How Kaarina plans to explore her Taiwanese heritage and wants to use her art to create discourse and to connect with others · How Kaarina deals with people who challenge her about her identity · Kaarina's advice for people who want to take the path of being an artist Related Links:

Today's episode features Tiffany Ran, Taiwanese American chef of Ba Ba Lio (886), BB6 Taiwanese Pop Up out in Seattle.We talked all about Tiffany's journey in the culinary world, being a chef, her Taiwanese-American upbringing, and of course, food specifically Taiwanese food and why you need to check out more than just Boba (Bubble Tea) and soup dumplings because Taiwanese food is soo good! Plus, we talked about her pop-up, Ba Ba Lio!Find Tiffany!Websitehttps://www.babaliotaiwan.com/Instagramhttps://www.instagram.com/bb6twpopup/?hl=enWhat is Ba Ba Lio (According to Tiffany):During my first few years of cooking in Seattle restaurants, I'd wrap up my shifts late at night just as the sun was rising in Taiwan. I would call home after finishing my shifts, dialling 011+886...waiting for the connection...closing my eyes as the phone rings. I'd picture that the King County bus I'm riding on would magically complete its route in front of Taipei's Nanmen Market."What are you making today?""What does the market have?"After asking these questions, my mother on the other line would fill me in on the produce at the morning wet markets and on dishes bound for the dinner table."Ba ba lio," or 8-8-6 in Chinese, is the international calling code to Taiwan, a string of numbers that tethers me to one home as I struggled to build another in a new city. BB6 Taiwanese Pop Up was born from homesickness and driven by discoveries. While our dishes are born of old Taiwan flavours, they're also peppered with new Pacific Northwest elements. I hope, from our meals, you'll discover new flavours and recall familiar ones. Please follow us and share your feelings, favourite dishes, and cravings with me. Taiwanese cuisine is, in part, about my experiences, but it's also yours. I am fortunate and so is Taiwan, to have your support! Support the showThank you for listening! Help this podcast:1.

Formosa Files and Taipei-based lawyer Ross Feingold very much hope you never get arrested in Taiwan, or anywhere else for that matter. But should this unfortunate event occur, what are your rights? Does Taiwan require search warrants? Are there "Miranda Rights"? Is it really true that you can get in legal trouble for swearing at someone? Are cops allowed to parade suspects in front of the media in what Americans call a "perp walk"? Listen as Eryk gets some free legal advice* from an expert in local law. (*Disclaimer: None of the commentaries in this episode should be taken as official legal advice. Ross Feingold is speaking as an individual legal professional, and his views are his own.)

Taiwan will hold presidential elections in January 2024. Needless to say, these elections will have extremely consequential geopolitical implications. The two main candidates have differing views of Taiwan's relationship with China. Lai Ching-te of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is the current Vice President and represents the stronger pro-independence faction of Taiwanese politics. His main rival, Hou Yu-ih of the Kuomingtang (KMT) supports closer relations between Taipei and Beijing. And this year there is a surprising third party candidate, Ko Wen-je of the Taiwan People's Party (TPP), who is is shaking up what is conventionally a two party presidential contest. Joining me for an in-depth conversation about Taiwanese politics and these upcoming elections is Kharis Templeman, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution where he is the program manager of the Project on Taiwan in the Indo-Pacific Region. We kick off discussing the political history of Taiwan following the Chinese civil war and then have an in-depth conversation about each of the candidates' positions on the key issue of cross straight relations.
