Jack returns behind the mic for the second installation of DIU Taiwan. This time, he is joined by Uncle Phil, a fellow teacher in Taiwan. Uncle Phil talks about his initial reactions upon landing in Taiwan. Uncle Phil compares his initial time in Taiwan with his time living in Beijing. We also hear about the two going to the Taiwan Pride Parade – and how Jack was super awkward.
We learn that Uncle Phil is also a Love Guru, as deemed by Jack. Jack revives the Kao Lui Corner and immediately puts Phil in the hot seat.
Jack and Kyle return behind the mic for the first episode of DIU Podcast – Taiwan Edition. The two talk about their initial month in the land of bubble (a word Jack can’t pronounce for some reason) tea, and the start of their careers as English teachers. This episode’s barrage of topics include: being Asian-Canadian in Taiwan, living in a cash-based society, Jack’s gangster landlord, Kyle’s love for McDonald’s delivery, and teaching English to kids. We also learn that Jack is super poor, and already borrowing money from other people.
What future adventures are in store for the DIU Taiwan gang? Stay tuned to find out!
