Erik is the owner and creator of the Rice Noodles YouTube channel, where he shares everything Taiwan, from street food to normal food, culture, history and just general interesting and idiosyncratic things.
In this long and fun conversation, we cover filmmaking, the beast that is YouTube, and of course, Taiwan.
A different style of episode to my usual, so curious to hear any feedback but I hope you enjoy my conversation with Erik from Rice Noodles!
