Episode 10: Trailwalker special

In Episode 10 of the first ever podcast to break the world record for the number of hours spent being edited, Joseph whisks you away into the world of The Blisters and the Longlegs, a.k.a. The Trailwalkers.

100km. 7 mountain peaks. A 3500 meter climb. 31 hours. Without sleep.

It was an epic adventure, and you can hear all about it in episode 10 of A Year in Japan. Includes live recordings made during the event itself, bringing you all the drama of the those dark and desperate hours.

There's also a brief news update, some shout-outs, and some worrying episodes of presenter madness.

You cannot afford to NOT listen to this show!
