Episode #148 #InsideJapan A fantastic episode with Harry Bossert all about how he came to Japan to work in the anime industry. In it he shares his amazing story and advice on what skills you need to learn to get a job in animation (and you don't have to become an artist as there are tons of different jobs and skills involved).

This episode of the podcast is all about learning Japanese while in an English only working environment. This is why SO MANY people don't learn Japanese while they are here; it's super hard to study when your work is 100% in English. You can only say "I don't need a plastic bag" at the convenience store so many times before you've mastered it... Also take a look at this book, the 5 year diary, that Dallas mentioned in the discussion: https://amzn.to/2QSReYJ We talk about: - Starting with Chinese and switching to Japanese (and how much more in-demand Japanese really is outside Japan) - Strategies for learning Japanese while working in English-only environments - The best study habits that make getting to N1 easier and more fun!
