In this special episode, host Chieh-Ting Yeh and guest Jou Yi-cheng go over the history of Dihua Street in the old Dadaocheng neighborhood in Taipei. Known for its specialty shops, we take you on a journey into the 1920s, when Dadaocheng was the cosmopolitan center of Taiwan, connecting it to the rest of the world in the Roaring 20s. We also ponder what that means for Taiwan going into the 2020s and beyond.
