Japan. Our place of residence. There are many things that set it apart from other places. Together, with very special guest Casey Liss (one of the hosts of both the Accidental Tech Podcast and Analog(ue), and the creator of Peek-a-view app on the AppStore, all projects that are far more successful than this one), they discuss many things that are unique about Japan. First, they talk about how Nate and Ryan ended up in Japan in the first place (That’s right folks, it’s the backstory episode!). Then, they shift to the mouse who owns everything. Star Wars, Marvel and even Tokyo’s Land and Sea. The three of them talk about the parks and what makes them different from other Disney theme parks around the world. Finally, for the main media of the week, Casey had Nate and Ryan watch one of his favorite episodes of Top Gear, where the hosts race across Japan in a Nissan GT-R against Japan’s neigh on infallible public transit system, including the world famous bullet train.
