    3 - Living with Uncertainty

    3 - Living with Uncertainty

    Note - I've been holding off on doing a podcast during this time of uncertainty with covid, until and unless I had something I felt was relevant to say. I've recorded a few different casts, but have held off on releasing them for now. I feel this one however is perfectly relevant now in this time of extreme uncertainty the world has suddenly found itself in.

    On the afternoon of March 3, 2011, I was sitting in my office talking on Skype with a colleague, when a massive earthquake struck off the coast of the Tohoku (東北) region of Japan, causing a massive tsunami that killed nearly 20,000 people, and displaced hundreds of thousands of more from their homes. The resulting tsunami caused a nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima power plant. I had a new business, and a wife and young child to take care of, and had to make some major decisions, in a time of uncertainty.
    In this podcast, I discuss that time, and the lessons I learned in making decisions in times of uncertainty.

    Peace to you all.

    2 - What’s This All About

    2 - What’s This All About

    In this episode, Jay talks about what The Friendly Outsider is all about. Jay discusses the ideas that this podcast will discuss - identity, nationality, internationality, growth, and tech. Jay also discusses his re-integration into both Western and Canadian society, and the reverse-culture-shock that comes along with these changes. He also talks of a somewhat jarring welcome into a new group, due to the world having changed and Jay not necessarily having kept up.

    1- The Story so Far

    1- The Story so Far

    Who am I? How did I get here? Why am I here? Why should you care?

    This is the introductory episode of The Friendly Outsider. It discusses my reasons for returning home, the calamity it has been in doing so, and is a story of rolling with the punches to have a good time even when plans don't go as intended.
