Japan Episode 2

Japan Episode 2:

Gavin and Andrew check back in for the second installment of DIU Japan. This time they are joined by fellow Canadian English teacher, Jeef. This week, the gang focus their discussion heavily on driving in Japan.

Now well into their first few months in the Gunma prefecture, the gang all have rented kei (yellow plate) cars – expanding the realm of possibilities while exploring the land of the rising sun. But not all is right in this seemingly beautiful paradise.

Gavin rants about the fact that there is no “left on red,” how he paying more for insurance than Andrew and Jeef, and how amber lights literally last half a second.

We also talk about our boy Ebachan – A.K.A. a NPC mechanic character straight out of Initial D – and our two-hour hike up a mountain during a typhoon.

Other topics include super thin apartment walls, the legendary gaijin smash ability, and the group of people known as gaijin hunters.

Jack and Kyle return behind the mic for the first episode of DIU Podcast – Taiwan Edition. The two talk about their initial month in the land of bubble (a word Jack can’t pronounce for some reason) tea, and the start of their careers as English teachers. This episode’s barrage of topics include: being Asian-Canadian in Taiwan, living in a cash-based society, Jack’s gangster landlord, Kyle’s love for McDonald’s delivery, and teaching English to kids. We also learn that Jack is super poor, and already borrowing money from other people.
