This podcast has high functionality

I always loved Chris’ YouTube channel. In a world of over earnest trust fund baby traveloguers treating Japan like a precious object that would crumble at the slightest sideways Western gaze, it is really refreshing to have a snarky sarcastic Brit give his plain talking impression of Japan while still managing to be respectful of the culture. The banter he has with Mr Pete makes me chuckle constantly and the 45 mins flys by far too quickly. I was supposed to be on secondment in Japan last year but this podcast will give me my Japanophile fix until I can go in 2022. Yeah. Alwight mate.

Long time watcher first time reviewer

I used to listen when they first started the podcast as I watch Chris on YouTube but I just don't care for the podcast. There's not enough about Japan and more him and Pete rambling on about whatever. I had stopped listening for a few months when I heard Sharla was a guest on and enjoyed the couple with her. Nothing against Pete, as he is professional dj and all, but I think his and Chris'energies are not cohesive enough.
