A Treasure Trove of Information About Working in Japan

The host of the show, James does a really good job of connecting with contemporary non-Japanese at different stages in their time in Japan and getting their unfiltered take on their jobs, careers, and lives.

A “gotta have” podcast for those seriously considering life in Japan from the person just out of college or the mid-career person looking for a change or challenge.

James is inspirational

This is Radrey, podcaster from Why Come Japan here. James first reached out to me to be on his show back in 2018. James always has good takes about life in Japan and is fun to follow on his social media. The guests are always of a wide variety which give his listeners a little something for everybody who is living in Japan. Especially good if you’re looking for a job.

Great help

Definitely check out this podcast if you're planning on applying for the JET program. I listened to a lot of the episodes regarding JET to get a better feel for the program and James hosts interview practices that are insanely helpful.
