If you’ve ever thought about relocating to Japan from outside of the country, you’ll find that there are some awesome job opportunities out there.Finding a great opportunity, however, can be a needle in a haystack. It’s this pain point that led Eric Turner to create Japan Dev, a job board that curates handpicked tech jobs in Japan.

    Eric, himself, is American—a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh.

In today’s podcast, he talks to Matt about the experiences that led him to co-founding Japan Dev.

Entertaining; Only somewhat software related

I wouldn’t quite call this a “must listen for any programmer”. It has plenty of high level not quite development applies to anywhere content so non developers are probably welcome.

Outside of that it is quite enjoyable and works as something you do not need to give 100% of you mental capacity to.

Removal of preview talk at the start…

Good change. I like minimal music intro as well but this one isn’t too long.

Overall a great podcast.
