A Year in Japan - Episode 14: New Podcast Alert! (M4A version)
After a podfade of about 15 months, Joseph is back with a very short announcement - he's about to start a new Podcast from Japan!
Japan Podshow is a brand new podcast bringing you weird and wonderful stories from the land of the rising tide of foreigners. We're looking to expose the real life of foreigners in Japan, showcasing all the success stories, and the not-so-successful-but-amusing stories, in addition to bringing you the latest news from the streets of Tokyo and beyond.
We're launching in April 2009 - head on over to http://www.japanpodshow.com for the new feeds.
Episode 13 - New Year 2008
Not exactly a Christmas special, more a New Year Ramble.
In Episode 13 of A year in Japan, Joseph gets wiggy as he takes a step back and assesses his final year of Japanese Studies at the University of Sheffield. There's talk of the future too in this 38 minute episode, a lot of which was recorded in the woods in the Animal Council Clearing.

Episode 12 - a p.s. at the end of Series One!
In this very short podcast, I tell you about my plans for another series of A Year in Japan in 2008!
Thanks to Positive Internet (www.positive-internet.com) for hosting A Year in Japan!
See you in 2008!
Episode 11 - Sayonara Japan, or should I say 'Mata ne!'
In the last show of series one of A Year in Japan, Joseph brings you up to date with the hectic final month of his Year in Japan as a university student.
Hear the story about how a drunken hair cut almost cost him his Fuji TV Drama debut, in which he stars alongside the award-winning actress Tokiwa Takako. There's news on his engagement to *Twinkle* too - exactly how did he propose?
There's also news of his next mega-exciting super duper project: 28 Days Halfway Around the World, a trans-siberian adventure that starts on August 14th 2007 (See www.9000miles.info).
All this and more in Episode 11 of A Year in Japan.
Episode 10.5: A mini-request (M4A Version)
In this mini episode of A Year in Japan I ask for your requests - what should I do in the last episode in this series of a Year in Japan, to be broadcast next month? It's up you! Send your ideas in to firstname.lastname@example.org

In the meantime, I'll try and survive my end-of-year exams!
