Download this interview

Damon is currently studying for his doctorate in Pharmiceuticals in Philadelphina, his wife Katherine is a Taiwanese-American working as a nurse.

Katherine discovered “What’s up in Taiwan” while going through the directory of iTunes Podcast and soon became a loyal listener. Every weekend, she would download the latest episode and share it with her husband. Maybe it’s somewhat of a comfort for her nostalgia, and to help Damon in his education in becoming the perfect Taiwanese son in-law. We have also been receiving letters of encouragement and helpful comments from the wonderful couple for quite sometime now.

Damon and Katherine decided to visit in June; they made plans to tour around the island in just 9 days, but we managed to meet them for an interview in Taichung right before they departed for home. Damon’s introduction of Taiwan was very touching; we can tell he really did a great share of research as he traveled through out the island. He wanted to express some of the close observations of what the Taiwanese people have been feeling recently at the end of the interview, which we have posted earlier as a separate segment.

Thanks to these genuine admirers of Taiwan, and please ask those with interesting stories about Taiwan to contact us.

來自費城的Damon還是一位研究生,他的太太Katherine是台灣移民,目前在費城醫院擔任護士工作。

去年Katherine在iTunes Podcast目錄中發現我們後,就立刻成為忠實聽眾。每個週末,Katherine會下載最新一集的節目與Damon一起收聽,也許Katherine可以解解鄉愁,而Damon可以更像台灣女婿... 當然,我們也就不斷地收到Damon和Katherine的來信,有鼓勵,有支持,也有對節目的意見。

六月間Damon與Katherine來台旅遊,九天的行程環島了一圈,在離台前與我們在台中碰面做了訪問,Damon的確在旅遊期間做了功課,他對台灣的介紹詳細並讓人印象深刻。訪問結束後,Damon還要求我們錄製了一段他對台灣鼓勵的話,已於美國獨立紀念日掛出兩天,我接到許多表達感動的來信...

謝謝這些真誠欣賞台灣的朋友,也希望大家推薦有精彩故事分享的外國人與我們聯繫
