The archipelago of Kinmen in the Strait of Taiwan is small, barely visible on a map. Despite being under Taiwanese governance, it is actually closer to the shores of mainland China, only a 30-minute ferry ride away. It has been dealing with a garbage problem, with tonnes of trash washing up on its shores. But Kinmen has long been dealing with the consequences of Beijing and Taipei’s conflict, including recent military activity. So, where does this geopolitical dispute leave the Kinmenese?
In this episode:
- Frederik Kelter (@FrederikKelter), Journalist based in Taiwan
- Chieh-Ting Yeh (@chiehtingyeh), Director of US Taiwan Watch
