In a new series, podcast host Jasmine Lee (Harbour Times Managing Editor-in-Chief) focuses on one topic each episode to dig a little deeper on issues affecting Hong Kong. Its first episode takes a look at Taiwan’s presidential election, the outcome, and how the DPP’s victorious re-election will affect in relations with Hong Kong and China.

Ross Feingold, writer of Harbour Times travel advisory Shipping Out, joined Ms Lee to discuss what the win of Taiwan’s pro-independence party means for Hong Kong’s current political climate. They touch upon its main takeaways, the Hong Kong extradition law case, and if anti-government protesters should interpret these election results as a win for their own cause.
