Status Update is RTI's most interactive program, and your entries are what make the program exciting! We welcome your participation in the following segments. Letters: Each week, we select letters from our worldwide listeners to read on the air. Watch out for monthly topics on the website. Q&A: Ask anything you are curious about Taiwan or RTI. Shirley Lin and John Van Trieste will use their wits and wisdom to answer your questions. The senders of selected entries read on air will receive special souvenirs.
Jake Chen, in place of John Van Trieste, and Shirley Lin talk about some of the traditional professions in Taiwan that are still very much alive, on the first Status Update for 2019. Can you guess which profession we're hinting at from the picture?
