Episode 13 - New Year walk in the woods

Not exactly a Christmas special, more a New Year Ramble.

In Episode 13 of A year in Japan, Joseph gets wiggy as he takes a step back and assesses his final year of Japanese Studies at the University of Sheffield. There's talk of the future too in this 38 minute episode, a lot of which was recorded in the woods in the Animal Council Clearing.

Oh, that podcast I'm talking about is available here.

The 'advanced' (m4a) version of the podcast (sorry no photos this time) is available here.

The MP3 can be downloaded here.

Episode 11 - Filming with the stars for my Japanese TV Drama Debut

In the last show of series one of A Year in Japan, Joseph brings you up to date with the hectic final month of his Year in Japan as a university student.

Hear the story about how a drunken hair cut almost cost him his Fuji TV Drama debut, in which he stars alongside the multiple award-winning major celeb/actress Tokiwa Takako.

There's also news on his engagement to *Twinkle* too - exactly how did he propose?

Then there's his next mega-exciting super duper project: 28 Days Halfway Around the World, a trans-siberian adventure that starts on August 14th 2007 (See www.9000miles.info).

All this and much much more in Episode 11 of A Year in Japan.
