Highly Entertaining

This podcast I found by chance when looking for something to listen to, travel related. What I would find, is a highly entertaining and easy to listen to podcast. Not going to lie, this is my go to when doing dishes. The stories, commentary and answered questions are good fun and make me want to travel to Japan some day!

Chris yes please, Pete not so much

I lived in Tokyo for 7 years so listen to this for nostalgic purposes. Chris is a great host and I discovered this podcast through his Youtube videos which are often laugh out loud and very entertaining.
2 things which would make me give this podcast 5 stars:
1- get rid of Pete, he stumbles on his seentences too much and even though I’m sure he’s a nice guy I find his input boring
2- just do weekly shows. Twice is too much and I can’t keep up as I listen to quite a few other podcasts also

Distraction from Doom

Walk 6 miles listening to a few of these a couple of times a week. Makes me want to visit Japan when this is all over.
