Get your tech fix and practice Chinese at the same time!

The lack of Chinese language tech podcasts means I’m crying myself to sleep most nights, well maybe not that extreme, but I am disappointed 😉 In the past there was Shuo3 (說3) from China, and also Push Reporter (你推我報) from Taiwan, but both have already been discontinued.

FrameBox Studio Tech Video Podcast

Fortunately, a Taiwanese company, Framebox Studio, is releasing regular short-format tech news video podcasts. The podcast is hosted by wá wá  (娃娃),  a cute Taiwanese girl who self proclaims to be crazy about tech (瘋科技的), her pronunciation is clear and about medium speed (could probably even be considered slow for a news programme) – so now you can get your weekly tech fix, while at the same time practicing your Chinese listening ability!

    This is terrific. Thank you. Love the outtakes. I think this girl might actually be a cartoon wearing a body suit.

  • She is 可愛, and yea, Chinese language podcasts are quite rare, so I’m so glad to have actually found a tech podcast that is updated regularly. Now I can study more Chinese about a subject I actually have an interest in 🙂

  • Don’t suppose you know if they have an iTunes feed? I’ve had a bit of a gander, but so far no joy. Would make it much easier for me to digest!

    Great find anyway. Thanks for sharing.

  • I just asked on their Facebook page if they have an iTunes feed… seems weird not to have one as I’ve seen their podcasts promoted on all different blogging platforms.

  • Thanks for that! I had a good look on their youtube page as well, but seems they are just promoting that and facebook for now. I’d love it if the show could magically appear on my iPhone (and hence iTunes) though.
