Ezra 🇬🇸 ,

Quality and funny!

Having listened to the pod while living in New Zealand and after living in Tokyo for a couple of months, this podcast introduced me to what living in Japan would be like. It's fun now to pick up some of the Japanese and reminisce about my trip. 😁 Really grateful to have Chris and Pete journey with me through the whole experience! ❤️

Hinzwip ,

You just can’t stop the growing grin!

An inelegant snort can usually be heard at some point during my listening to these two and their discussions. I look forward to their banter every week. Thanks for being exactly who you both are! Awesome human beings 😬😬👍🏽👍🏽

NZcourt ,

Gotta listen! Too Funny!

👍 Love listening ✌️
