    Hey everyone,

    We recorded this episode live as a way for the two of us to talk through and process everything that’s happened with the passing of Hana Kimura. We wanted to thank everyone who joined us in helping to create a safe and welcoming space.

    In essence, we wanted to allow for the exact opposite kind of online presence that led to this tragedy. If the world worked as it should, those who sent harmful messages would be held accountable. The platforms responsible for allowing that kind of vitriolic harassment would be held accountable. The list goes on.

    At the end of the day, Hana was a beacon of light, and one that will be missed. It never should have ended this way, and she deserved better. Please please please: Be kind to yourselves and others. Reach out and help each other, especially now. Call out bad actors, hold them accountable. Do everything you can to act on this moment going forward.

    Thank you so much.

    RIP Hana



    Unfortunately this episode is also our last. We can no longer in good faith support a show that doesn’t support its cast in any meaningful way. Whether Terrace House returns or not, we won’t be covering it.

    Thank you so much for supporting us over the years. It means so much to have carved out such a vibrant and wholesome slice of the internet to call our own. You all made it an absolute joy.

    We’ll be back soon with something new, so stay subscribed to the feed if you want to come along for the ride.

    We love you all! Aloha for now!!

this podcast sparks joy

I came to know this podcast during my first foray into Terrace House (i started with aloha state, don’t @ me i know that’s wack). Hosts Brenden & Andrea break down each episode and discuss the virtues and shortfalls of the interactions between our beloved house members. I really appreciate how Andrea sheds light on many unknown-to-me idiosyncrasies from the show with her experiences living in Japan (i.e setsubun, temples, dating culture, bath culture, the music industry, weddings in churches, j-pop, Japanese modeling industry, etc etc). Thank you, Andrea!

Brenden is a master podcast editor who makes the listening extra fun with silly little effects. He takes excellent show notes and steers the podcast to balance perfectly between staying on track and following meandering tangents.

Brenden and Andrea’s friendship and personal lore within the terrace house podcast add a layer of richness to the experience.

When Hana Kimura passed away I grieved for her, and for the loss of Terrace House. This thing that gave me so much pleasure became a source of deep pain. After almost a year in pandemic i decided to start rewatching the Opening New Doors season. It remains a balm, especially after a year of pandemic, insurrection, you name it.

Re-listening to this podcast in tandem with RE-watching Opening New Doors sparks a tremendous amount of joy in me. For that I am eternally grateful to Andrea & Brenden.

If you two ever decide to revisit the OG seasons and return to the podcast, I think the whole NSAA community would cheer you on.

With so much gratitude,
Laura

Your my angel

Only Terrace House podcast I’ve managed to get into so far. I love Andrea and Brendon’s banter and feel like I’m hanging with friends. I don’t know how I would have made it past Yuudai without them.

My Dudes

Great listen. I crack up every time Andrea says “my dude”....or “my man”...or a variation of the theme. I see a potential drinking game in my quarantine future.
