Entitled millennials travel the world

Oh how I enjoyed this podcast when I first started listening to it. However, in more recent episodes, there is a lot of disdain for "the corporate world" and all that it entails. There are many reasons that more people cannot embark upon the global lifestyle of these two. If they would approach it from a different perspective - "this is what we have chosen, and it's great for us!"- then it would be much more pleasant to listen to. However, the new condescending point of view is difficult to stomach. And I do wish that Amanda could give her recollections or point of view without constantly being corrected by Ryan.
That aside, the podcast has a good premise.

Wow

The Taiwan episode was incredibly rude and close-minded. Did you actually say that the entire city of Taipei looks like it needs to power washed? Everything about this episode was distasteful and insulting. For self-proclaimed “World Wanderers”, you’d think that these two would have a more open mind when it comes to experiencing different cultures. Taiwan is an incredible country that has plenty to offer and it should not be talked about in comparison/ or in the shadow of Japan. Don’t forget that many of our grandparents grew up in a Taiwan under Japanese rule. Even though the podcast ended on a higher note than how it began, it began on such a low note (she literally used the word “meh” to describe her feelings towards Taiwan) that I can’t imagine why anyone would be bothered to go there. Pick a better place to stay next time and do your research before complaining about 40 min MRT rides. Saying that you would rather have spent more time in Japan than in Taiwan? I can’t go into any more detail about everything that was wrong with this episode because of both the word limit and the fact that there’s so much crap to sift through. By all means, I’m not saying they shouldn’t be able to express how they really feel about the country, they are certainly entitled to their own opinions about Taiwan, but jeez, have a little more respect for the place and the people. Very poorly done and altogether quite disappointing.
