  1. Hey guys, a slight correction on today’s show. China’s seat on the security council wasn’t technically held by Taiwan. It was held by the Chinese Nationalist Party, also known as the KMT or Kuomingtang, who were at that time in exile in Taiwan.

    No country known as Taiwan, or Formosa, has ever been represented in the UN. There was a short time when the ROC and the PRC could have shared a seat, but Chiang Kai-Shek refused. This could have been something like a Taiwan republic having representation in the UN though it still would have been the ROC government in exile in Taiwan with all the actual political power.

    Anyways good show guys. keep up the good work.

  2. I went with calling Taiwan just because it’s the colloquial term for all of the below. Yes, they are technically just the home of a different Chinese government, but I was going for brevity on it. That being said, thanks for sharing this since it might be good for those who don’t know all of this. – Dustin
