FEATURED EXTRAS

Bobby and Ollie from Japan by River Cruise here. We’re saving up to buy our very own river cruise boat, and when we get it, we’ll be taking all of our fans and sponsors on it.

The fact that you give up 30 minutes a week listening to our podcast is payment enough. We also think that we would like payment.

Please buy us a coffee if you enjoy the podcast. We promise to spend it only on the cheapest canned coffee we can find, to make your donation go as far as possible. Remember, the more money you give, the more money we get.

If you want early access to the podcast, plus bonus chat please consider becoming a member for $1 an episode.

Thanks for your support, Brian.

Mayday received from Bobby (recently demoted from amusing foreign curiosity to leper) and Ollie (involuntarily and expensively reshored to England). Time for me and others to throw some cash their way. In my case, since I have recently listened to the entirety of the back catalogue of roughly 80 episodes, I figure at $1 / episode I owe $80, and that’s what I’m sending. By the way, despite my careful study, I am still baffled -- how did the handsome one leave Japan without a wife, and the smart one stay and work in Japanese TV? And another thing, how come there are so many more river cruises now than there were 40 years ago when I lived in Japan? I’m guessing maybe the government ran out of concrete for stimulus projects and switched to river dredging to promote tourism? In any case, Ollie, carry on -- you’re getting your art down better and better. And Bobby, based on your super cute daughters, your mission is to repopulate Japan (somebody has to do it).

That is insane! And very very kind of you! Thanks so much! Please send us your address so we can send you swag!

Really appreciate the work you guys put into the show (I cannot think of an appropriate pun or joke that wouldn't just invalidate my sense of gratitude, so I will just stop here.) Thank you gents! Please keep bringing your light hearted cheer from your various 自粛 locations!

Chad, thank you so much for joining up! We really appreciate it!
