  • Poor interviewing

    I listened to the episode with Cathy Erway about her recent book on Taiwan, because I was interested in hearing about her new book. However, I found the interviewer so unbearable that I could not finish the episode. The interviewer continually interrupted, made unrelated comments, and went off on tangents. It seemed like the interviewer hadn’t done the homework of reading the book or writing interesting questions in the interest of facilitating conversation.

  • Need a new host

    Love the show and the guests but I can’t stand the host. Rude, ignorant, and very impolite.

  • Dim sum discussion disappoints

Rhubarb was used in ancient Chinese cuisine long before the English did. And something about sponge cake… that’s about all I learned here. Podcast needs mo... more

  • Taiwanese noodle episode

    Was incredibly painful to listen to. Interviewer stumbles and comes across as unsure, tired and flat.

  • Example of potential wasted by choosing the wrong host

    The topics and guests on this podcast are so great (and that one star is for them). At worst a guest is nervous and fumbly…a decent interviewer can get past it but the host of this podcast is either too inexperienced or brutally narcissistic? I thought earlier episodes were rough because she was getting used to the format but listening to the latest episodes…It is as if she has taken all the constructive criticism and feedback from listeners to purposefully make her interviews worse. I can’t thi... more
