50 - Jay Ken (Midnight Snakes)

Jay and I sat down in a dodgy... room let's cal it -- in Shimbashi, Tokyo. His band, Midnight Snakes, plays 70s inspired rock and sings lyrics about the nightlife and sketchy sides of living in Tokyo. 

In the intro I present solar panel roofs, YouTubers who complain about their free platform that changes the rules, and play a song from GhostRoads, the movie that was written by last week's guest, Mike Rogers.

25 - James Steele (Cow Broker & Bassist)

In the intro I a do a spoken essay on the possible influences that Soseki Natsume's "Kokoro" and Dazai Osamu's "The Setting Sun" have on the Netflix Drama "Hibana".  It takes around 20 minutes. Then...

James & I sat down in Ogikubo and talked cows.  He brokers cows.  He used to live in Japan and we played a lot of music together.  This episode is about cows!  And music! And beer!  Then we walked to Gamuso.
