Great Guests from Top League

Great podcast with fun cohosts. Great to see foreign-born players I follow talk about what it’s like to be a professional in Japan. And now a Japan-born’s perpective in Fumiaki Tanaka. Should be a fun listen while spit a handful of these sunflower seeds. Kotaro Matsushima next please!
