    EP8: Mai from Switzerland to Taiwan

    EP8: Mai from Switzerland to Taiwan

    Here we sit down with the illustrious Mai-Anh before she leaves Taiwan and returns home to Switzerland, along with Ling (who is literally an angel) who was less-included due to my having less than 3 microphones. Note to self.

    We talk Taiwan weather, Swiss trivia, Italians & Germans, living between two cultures, learn some Swiss French (what do you think 'panos' means?) and hear awful first attempt at a Chinese interview. We have a few false endings this time around—chilling in a casual environment with soft jazz lends itself to much more material.

    The entire time I had something stuck in my teeth so, that’s why it looks & sounds like my tongue is attacking my face the entire time.
