Planet Japan Podcast: Ep 185: The Road to Hiroshima
We open the show with Doug’s fantasy of marrying a mermaid.
For the first time ever, the U.S. sent a representative, ambassador John Roos, to the ceremonies in Hiroshima marking the 65th anniversary of the atomic bombing of the city.
A young British girl named Beckii Cruel has taken Japan by storm with her dancin’ and her prancin’.
We honor two Dicks of the Week this week. Dr. Laura‘s radio empire has collapsed after she said the n-word 11 times in 5 minutes on her show, andSteven Slater became a hero to some people after a spectacular exit from an airplane – but we think he’s a dick.
This week’s Nihongo a Go Go includes “susume no namida,” which means “tears of a sparrow,” and is used to refer to something that is very small. And in Japanese, trains don’t go “choo choo,” they go “kachong, kachong.”
We have an interview with our friend “Georg With No E” from Germany, as he searches far and wide for a job in Japan.
That’s it for now. Thanks for listening!
