Variety Ear to the Ground

Ear to the Ground

In 2004, RTI host Andrew Ryan began recording the sounds of Taiwan and creating "sound postcards" which he sent to listeners around the world via the air waves.

Now, the sounds of Taiwan take center stage in a new series of 5-minute programs that dig deeper into the stories and people of this island. Join Andrew on this audio journey into the heart of Taiwan and its people.
