They talk about everything and anything Japan, politics, sex, dating, education, otaku culture and whatever else tickles their fancy and they do it unapologetic ally. All for the sake of demystifying the misconceptions people have about The Land of the Rising Sun.They also bring on guests from all walks of life who call Japan their home to get their take on the Japan experience.
So if you’re interested in Japan and you’re interested in hearing two guys crush the dreams of otaku around the world; you’ll want to give this podcast a listen.
Honestly though, it’s just their own experiences, not the gospel, so take it with a grain of salt.
