Be sure to check out our new site, Report.tw! It is integrated with the show, allowing you to see what we’re following and commenting on in the news, with the articles that will allow you to go deeper into the topics we discuss. This week, hosts Michael Turton (麥哲恩) and Courtney Donovan Smith (石東文) tackle the latest in election news, and it’s all KMT candidate Daniel Han Kuo-yu’s campaign sinking in the polls. Among the topics are Han’s coming out in support of marriage equality, allegations of influence peddling when he was a legislator to help his father-in-law’s gravel business, the gender gap in support for the DPP and KMT, Han’s call for his supporters to say they support his opponent when pollsters call…yup, all around a weird week. Held off on the spy story, that’s still developing and much is in the air, let’s see what shakes out next week. Oh, and we have an imaginary sponsor, and it turns out that in fact someone else did not edit this show this week, Donovan once again had a crack at it, which is why it looks eerily similar to previous shows…but tried something new with the lighting, hope you like it.
